In recent days, emerging treatment strategies to combat cancer has provided a new ray of hope for the patients suffering from cancer. Chemotherapy has immense potential; at the same time, many of them have intense side effects. Whereas, immunotherapy for cancer treatment might be an intrinsic way to treat cancer with minimum side effects, additionally, this have long-term efficacy. Further research is needed to predict, whether immunotherapy prevents cancer through direct killing of cancer cells or through preparing proper immunological microenvironment. In spite all modern treatments; recurrence or relapse of tumor is a big concern, which needs to be addressed through some advanced therapy. There is an emerging idea about manipulating the gut microbiota for cancer prevention/treatment. Efficacy of conventional anticancer therapy is reported to be enhanced in such manipulation, which can show future direction of cancer therapy.
