Biological therapy consists of using a living organism substance derived either from living organisms or laboratory produced variations of the substances to treat a particular disease. Biological therapies generally comprise interleukins, interferons, monoclonal antibodies, vaccines and so on. Biological therapy utilizes the body’s immune system either directly or indirectly in order to fight cancer. Some biological therapies for cancer use vaccines or bacteria to stimulate the body’s immune system to act against cancer cells where as some therapies involve antibodies.
The major factor that propels the growth of the global cancer biological therapy market include large patient pool. There are also other factors that drive the growth of the market such as growing prevalence of several cancers, growing impact of biosimilar, continuous patent expiry of cancer drugs growing demand of biological and targeted drug therapy.
On the other hand, there are also factors that hamper the growth of the market such as the high expenditure on drug development, the adverse effects of cancer drug therapy, the risk of failure in treatment, and stringent government guidelines
