Immune Therapies: The answer to Cancer?

Harness the Power of Your Immune System with Safe Cell-Based Immune Therapies:

It is critical for your safety that you know – Cell-based immune therapies are very different to drug-based immune therapies (immunotherapies).

One is very safe – one is very risky.

Just Imagine…

  • A safe high-tech cancer vaccine treatment without side effects that can potently stimulate your immune system.       
  • A cancer vaccine treatment made from your own immune cells that can increase the number of natural killer cells (NK) as well as increasing their cytotoxic activity by 3 to 20-fold.
  • For 3+ decades there have been more that 10,000 cancer patients just like you who have been able to take advantage of this method. 

BE INFORMED: There is a great difference between cell-based (column on left) & drug-based immune therapies now heavily promoted in Australia & New Zealand.  

You should know about the severe unpredictable side effects with drug-based  immunotherapies: see dangers-of-drug-based-immune-therapies-references/

Risk awareness here lags behind USA where litigation for deaths & damages from drug-based immune therapies is increasing. Even the FDA is being sued. keytruda-litigation-controversy

This page contains potentially life-saving, life-extending information outside the scope of AU & NZ hospitals. Our advice; spend generous time here to boost your cancer health literacy and thus –  your survival odds.
But first – to better understand the brilliance of cell-based immune therapies, a basic understanding of what causes cancer is essential – see below.

Since cancer is a disease of damaged genes; the next section reveals something rarely seen in cancer medicine before.

Recharge, repair & rebuild your immune system…

For 5 years, we’ve referred patients to the world pioneer of cell-based immune therapies (Asia) witnessing outcomes consistently beyond clincal expectations. As well; these minimally invasive treatments are safe & predictable.

For example; the genomic tests (we use in Australia) typically reveal a patient’s mutated or deleted DNA. As the pictures above indicate; damaged genes can be causes or drivers of their cancer.

It is possible that cell-based immune therapies (overseas) may help to normalise homeostasis. This has been evidenced by continual monitoring and follow up of patients via genomic testing.

It appears possible that repair of DNA mutations is occurring.

We will be researching this surprising effect further in 2019.

Our Global Immune Specialist:

The immune specialist to whom we refer our navigated patients, a highly acclaimed MD PhD; has been called the Father of Immunotherapy in Asia. He and his colleagues pioneered unique, personalised cancer vaccines to deliver, safe and effective cancer treatment to significantly contribute to patients’ life extension.

They invented a novel (patented) in vitro cell expansion system for obtaining a large number of highly activated human NK cells and T cells that can now be used for cancer immunotherapy. 

Over many decades, there have been several reports from various countries on successful application of cell-based immunotherapy to various solid tumours and haematological malignancies.

Our immunotherapy colleague believes that cancer has to be tackled by multi-disciplinary approaches.

More Good News: Combining cell-based immunotherapy using NK cells and CTL (cytotoxic lymphocytes) with hyperthermia & low-dose chemotherapy, can for some patients, be a very effective strategy to treat cancer.

Of most importance; cell-based immunotherapy can be of great value to prevent cancer recurrence.

Our immunotherapy colleague in Asia believes that many cancers have to be tackled by multi-disciplinary approaches, especially when there is high tumour volume.

Why is chemotherapy used sometimes? Doesn’t it destroy the immune system?

Don’t’ throw the baby out with the bathwater – chemotherapy can be immune stimulating. Read on!

Our Immunotherapy expert in Asia says that sometimes low dose chemotherapy & immunotherapy can be synergistic and help to orchestrate immune function. There is growing body of literature on chemotherapy-induced anti-tumour immunomodulation.

Results from many studies highlight the therapeutic potential of synergistic strategies that combine traditional chemotherapy with immunotherapy. Low dose chemotherapy is often used in these situations as high doses of chemotherapy may negatively impact immune cells.

As well as chemotherapy, low dose radiation has also been found to to stimulate immunity including antibody formation, NK activity, CTL activity, macrophage activity, ADCC activity, secretion of proteins and other cytokines as well as other cellular changes.

Animal studies have revealed that low dose radiation can retard tumour growth, decreases cancer metastasis, and inhibits carcinogenesis induced by high dose radiation. These effects of LDR on cancer control were found to be related to its stimulation on immunity.

 In brief – The same type of immunotherapy vaccines made from your own cells, can also be used after conventional treatments, such as surgical operations, radiotherapy, cyberknife, proton beam treatment & chemotherapy.  

No guess work – no more one size fits all

During the course of their stay in Asia (usually 3 weeks); our immunotherapy colleague provides our clients with a series of specific immune function reports. 
These include measurements of immune cells: quantity of cells, functionality and percentages of cells before during and after treatment.
As well, blood is measured using sophisticated cancer markers and tests not used in conventional Western cancer medicine.

To enhance your immune activities he can use many types of immune cells such as NK cells, NKT cells, γδT cells, αβT cells, cytotoxic T cells (CTL) and dendritic cells (DC). In the multidisciplinary approach to treating cancer, many different types of cells can be used.

Why our immunotherapy colleague focuses on enhancing NK cell function.

1. – the epidemiological data show the relationship between NK activity and cancer incidence.

2. – they can measure NK cell number and activity in patient’s blood to monitor the immune status of patients to evaluate the effect of treatment

3. – experimental results show that expanded NK cells can kill cancers efficiently.

4. – in patients with cancer and viral infection, NK cells function has been shown to be impaired. Our colleague has also shown that NK activity in peripheral blood was significantly lower with breast cancer than that of healthy individuals. Data suggests the important role of NK cells for host defence mechanisms against cancer.

5. – NK cells can enhance the effects of monoclonal antibody (mAb) treatments on cancers through antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC).

Your cancer navigator says, "Immune therapies are not just for people with active cancer"

Patients in remission with no evidence of disease are strongly advised to investigate cell based immune therapy to help prevent recurrence, repair & restore their immune system after chemotherapy and other treatments. 

When overseas travel for cancer therapy is involved, we take our responsibility very seriously.

Drawing upon 30 years' experience referring patients overseas for advanced treatments, we designed our Cancer Navigation Packages. Patients can be reassured we are there to support & guide them through every step.

Addressing a commonly asked Question:

Perhaps you have been thinking, ‘please explain more about the difference between the cell-based immune therapies discussed on this page and the drug-based immune therapies promoted widely in the media and now being enthusiastically adopted in our cancer hospitals.  (AU & NZ) “

Differences between drug based and cell based immune therapies

Drug based immune therapies:

  • mass produced by big pharma companies
  • sold globally – very expensive 
  • occasional excellent outcomes in some cancers, but still considered experimental – although FDA approved.
  • side effects – highly unpredictable – ranging from mild to severe; some fatal (heart attack etc)
  • now being used in trials for other cancers
  • some long term side effects in survivors are known but many are still unknown
  • click here for references outlining the unpredictability and dangers of the drug-based immune therapies
  • View lawsuits re drug-based immune therapies

Blood or blood tissue (cell) based immune therapies:

  • personalised from your cells – one patient – one doctor – low profit margins – big pharma can’t profit from this
  • consistent exceptional patient outcomes
  • side effects – minimal – predictable – most patients experience no side effects
  • not experimental – our collegiate clinic has treated 10-15,000 patients since 1990 – prolific medical Journal publications
  • value add – can safely enhance other treatments, e.g. low dose chemotherapy, hypothermia, cyber knife, proton beam therapy and stereo tactic radiation
  • long term effects known – no negative outcomes observed.
