Understanding cancer and your immune system

Your immune system helps your body fight off sickness and diseases. The immune system searches through your body for anything that looks like sickness. Once the immune system finds any form of sickness, it can attack it.

In hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), cancer cells (the sickness) can hide from your immune system. That means the immune system can’t attack the cancer cells like it normally would.

TECENTRIQ is a type of immunotherapy. TECENTRIQ is not chemotherapy. That means it helps the immune system see some of the cancer cells that are hiding. TECENTRIQ may also affect healthy cells.

Call or see your healthcare provider right away if you get any side effects listed here or those symptoms get worse.
