Answer

Immunomodulators

These agents may modulate the host immune system to inhibit the growth and proliferation of malignant cells.

Interferon alfa 2b (Intron-A)

Interferon alfa 2b is a protein product manufactured by recombinant DNA technology. Its mechanism of antitumor activity is not clearly understood. However, direct antiproliferative effects against malignant cells and modulation of the host immune response may play important roles.
