Dendritic Cancer Cell Therapy
Dendritic Cell Therapy is a powerful form of immune therapy used to fight cancer. It uses resources which already exist within the human body, namely, Dendritic Cells. They trigger the immune system to produce cells which fight cancer, and tell those cells how to do it.
What is the Dendritic cell’s function?
To understand Dendritic Cells, we must first understand how the immune system works. The body has both an innate and an adaptive immune system. The innate immune system is the first line of defence. It is none specific and fights any foreign antigen which enters the body. The adaptive immune system is the immune system which has learned how to fight specific antigens.
Dendritic cells act as the liaison between your different immune systems. They help the body to notice and recognise antigens which it needs to fight. In the case of cancer treatment, they teach your immune system to identify cancer cells, also called tumour antigens. This means that your adaptive immune system recognises cancer cells and can jump in faster to produce more of the cells which fight cancer. Unfortunately, Dendritic Cells are seldom active in adequate numbers.
What is Dendritic Cell Cancer Treatment?
Dendritic Cell Cancer therapy is a type of immunotherapy which helps to bolster your immune system and natural defences against cancer, by training and creating more dendritic cells.
It is highly advanced and targeted therapy, with a number of steps:
- Some dendritic cells are extracted from your body
- These cells are trained to fight the type of tumour which you have
- More of these trained cells are grown
- The cells are then re-injected into the body, acting as a dendritic cell-based cancer vaccine
- The dendritic cells move to the lymph nodes and activate, multiply and increase cancer fighting cells – T-cells and B-cells.
The benefits have been extensively researched and it has been proven a completely viable and safe alternative to conventional treatment. It has become a pillar in alternative cancer treatment, and has been adopted into many successful programmes across the world.
