Immunotherapy refers to a type of cancer treatment that attempts to stimulate the body's immune system to attack and kill cancer cells. The immune system is the body's natural defense against germs and disease. The main components of the immune system are the organs, tissues, and fluids that make up the lymph system—including white blood cells. White blood cells, such as T cells, are the substances that actually attack and kill germs or other unhealthy substances, such as cancer cells.

Melanoma is a type of skin cancer caused by damage to the DNA of melanocyte cells in the skin. Melanocytes produce melanin, a pigment in skin that is primarily responsible for skin color. When melanocytes DNA is damaged, it may cause the cells to mutate—leading to rapid, uncontrolled growth and the formation of malignant tumors. The goal of immunotherapy for cancer is to overcome these barriers to an effective anticancer immune response. These biological therapies restore or increase the activities of specific immune-system components or counteract immunosuppressive signals produced by cancer cells.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a new skin cancer drug designed to treat basal cell carcinoma. The drug, Odomzo, will be used to treat locally advanced basal cell carcinomas in patients where the disease has returned after the original tumor was surgically removed. The drug will also be an option for patients who are not candidates for surgery or radiation treatment.
