“Immunotherapy: The Battle Within” is a documentary film about the past, present and future of cancer immunotherapy, a treatment that provokes your body’s immune system into attacking cancer cells.

This film shows how the first cancer immunotherapy treatment was invented by William B. Coley, MD in the 1890s. Dr. Coley, while working at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, had hundreds of documented cures of people with ‘incurable’ cancer in the early part of the 20th century. This film looks closely at why Coley’s treatment ended up being banned, and how cancer immunotherapy treatment and research disappeared for over 100 years. 

Fast forward to 2018, James P. Allison, PhD, a research scientist at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, wins the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his development of the world’s first immune checkpoint inhibitor, which is a type of cancer immunotherapy!

What happened? Why are we now seeing a resurgence of interest in immunotherapy? Who is using it around the world, and where is this treatment headed?

Immunotherapy: The Battle Within, explains how and why cancer immunotherapy was practically erased from history and is now at the very forefront of cancer treatment.

The film also takes you on a virtual tour of independent cancer clinics around the world that utilize variations of cancer immunotherapy to treat the dreaded disease.

 A letter to our readers from Dr. Moss–

Dear friends,

I am pleased to invite you to the premiere viewing of this very special film.

This is a story that I have desperately wanted to tell for over 40 years!

It is the culmination of decades of investigating and thinking about this profound revolution in cancer treatment.

For the past year and a half my grandson, Jacob, my son, Ben, and I have been working on a one-hour documentary film titled Immunotherapy: The Battle Within.

This will finally have its premiere on YouTube on August 26th at 4 pm EDT.

I would like to invite you to join us for the launch of this very important event. 

The Battle Within refers to both the battle of the immune system against cancer and the battle within the medical profession over the best method of fighting cancer.

There are powerful financial forces at work in the immunotherapy field, which I explained in my recent book, Cancer, Incorporated.

For that reason, we are proud that this is an entirely independent documentary. Ben, Jacob, and I had absolute control over the final product. In that way, we were able to tell the story of the immune treatment without fear or favor. 

Jacob is the director and cinematographer: he traveled the world interviewing some of the leading clinics who are using the immune approach to this disease. My son, Ben, handled every aspect of the business end and was the producer. I am both the writer and narrator of the film.

We are very honored to feature my interview with James P. Allison, PhD the 2018 Nobel laureate, in this film.

One high point is how masterfully Jacob uses the story of William B. Coley, MD (1862-1936) to illuminate more modern approaches to the same problem.

I think that this film could be a real eye-opener for people who are struggling with cancer, to get them to see that cancer treatment is no longer restricted to the old slash-burn-and-poison approaches.

Won’t you join us to watch the premiere? You will be able to chat live with me and other special guests as this film is shown to the public for the very first time on YouTube on August 26th at 4 pm EDT.

Best, Ralph W. Moss, PhD
