Cancer Immunotherapy and Anti-Cancer Therapies
Immunotherapy Cancer Treatment
Immunotherapy is a form of treatment for cancer that utilizes the immune system to attack cancer cells, in much the same way that it attacks bacteria or viruses.
This type of cancer therapy seeks to harness the power of immune cells circulating in your body and has the potential to provide lasting benefits. By treating your body with immune stimulating therapies, and supplying the body with highly active immune cells, your body can increase its ability to treat the cancer.
In modern medicine, there have been major advances in the field of cancer immunotherapy, and this treatment is currently being favoured for many cancer types.
What is Cancer
Cancer is a disease in which some of the body’s cells grow uncontrollably and spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can start almost anywhere in the human body, which is made up of trillions of cells.
Cancer develops when the body’s normal control mechanism stops working. Old cells do not die and instead grow out of control, forming new, abnormal cells. These extra cells may form a mass of tissue, called a tumor. Some cancers, such as leukemia, do not form tumors.
Tumor angiogenesis is the growth of new blood vessels that tumors need to grow. This process is caused by the release of chemicals by the tumor and by host cells near the tumor.
ImmuneCells21 Cancer Treatments
NK cells are important immune cells that are critical for innate immunity. They have anti-tumor, anti-viral, and immune regulatory functions. NK cells are the patrol units of the immune system, and they can respond quickly to kill diseased cells. The most common method of NK cell therapy is to obtain human peripheral blood mononuclear cells and to subject these to antibody and cytokine stimulation ex vivo, resulting in vitro NK cell activation and proliferation.
Once the cell number exceeds millions in number the cells are subject to our NK21 protocol to mature the cells. Our scientists then perform the final stages of culture in which the cytotoxic activity of the cells is greatly enhanced.
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)
Photodynamic therapy for cancer (also known as cancer PDT) is one of the most promising medical approaches for the treatment of many different types of cancer. The principle is the stimulation of a light-sensitive substance based on natural chlorophyll (photosensitizer), which is given into the bloodstream intravenously and (or) injected locally into the tumor. The sensitizer binds to any type of tumor cell in the organism with very high specificity. After stimulation with (laser) light, these are destroyed through the formation of active oxygen radicals.
IV infusions of certain antioxidants, vitamins, amino acids, and minerals can greatly support anti-cancer mechanisms in the body. IV route ensures these nutrients are immediately available for the cells, tissues, and organs of the body.
We have various anti-cancer infusions, such as Curcumin, Vitamin C & D, Resveratrol, Quercitin, and GcMAF.
As a molecule found within all forms of cellular life, mRNA (mRNA) is central to biology itself. It quite literally finds itself the messenger between DNA, the body’s genetic blueprint, and proteins, the molecules responsible for the structure, function and regulation of the body.
So many diseases—from cancers to genetic conditions to infectious diseases—can be traced back to proteins, mRNA becomes a truly remarkable therapeutic tool.
