Immunotherapy is one of the greatest clinical care advancements of our time. We’ve known that ever since the pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation began more than 40 years ago. Right now, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) is changing the way cancer is prevented, treated and cured. Our doctors and nurses are leaders in this revolutionary field. Here, we offer a broader range of immunotherapy options for cancer patients.
The promise of immunotherapy is boosting survival rates for patients with leukemia and other cancers. Our patients have access to a greater number of investigational immunotherapy treatments — using T cells, monoclonal antibodies and gene therapy—in clinical trials that are available at SCCA.
