Although immunotherapy was first recognized over 100 years ago, it has only become an important therapeutic tool in recent decades. The immune system can be harnessed in one of several ways to tackle various diseases such as cancer, infection, auto-immune disease and inflammatory diseases.

The complexity of the immune system has led to some intrinsic obstacles with clinical research, particularly in relation to targeting the right genes, identifying the appropriate patient population and accessing internal tissues for testing.

Market access presents a significant hurdle for immunotherapeutics, as many are high cost and do not deliver the measurements required for traditional cost-effectiveness assessments.

Oncology has been a primary area of focus for immunotherapeutics, largely due to the potential offered by this market but also due to the critical role the immune system plays in the proliferation of cancer throughout the body. Auto-immune and inflammatory diseases are also attractive targets for immunotherapy, with several different approaches being investigated.
