What is targeted therapy for AIDS-related lymphoma?

Targeted therapy, also called immunotherapy, uses artificial antibodies to battle AIDS-related lymphoma. The antibodies latch directly onto the cancer cells and destroy them, or keep them from spreading or growing. Drugs or radioactive material may be added to the antibodies, which then transport these treatments to the cancer cells. The antibodies are usually delivered via IV (intravenously). Targeted therapy may be available for people with AIDS-related lymphoma who volunteer for a clinical trial.
