Solution

The correct option is A immunotherapy
To overcome the major problems of cancer therapies such as radiation or chemo therapy which mostly kill normal cells in addition to the cancer cells, immunotherapy was introduced. It is the treatment that uses certain parts of a person’s immune system to fight cancer. Immunotherapies either stimulate the activities of specific components of the immune system or counteract signals produced by cancer cells that suppress immune responses.
