Radioimmunotherapy is a treatment method available at St. Anthony Regional Mountain Cancer Center used to treat lymphomas.
How does radioimmunotherapy work?
There are special receptors on white blood cells that are very specific to that cell type. Since a lymphoma is a growth of these white cells, they can be targeted with a radioactive substance that will only attach to those cells. Once those cells have a radioactive "tag" the Radioimmunotherapy injection can find and destroy only the collection of cancer cells while not harming healthy cells.
