Immunotherapy is the treatment Medibiologica offers to stimulate the immune system to fight cancer and other chronic diseases. Its beneficial effects include:
Our protocol is a treatment lasting three weeks, which consists of three phases:
1. DETOXIFICATION: The first phase is the detoxification process highly recommended especially for patients who have undergone aggressive treatments such as surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, combined with poor diet and environmental factors that may be weakening the immune system, making the process of fighting harder the illness. Usually this phase lasts a week and is done through intravenous treatments with high content of vitamins and minerals as well as ozone therapy that helps revitalize cells and tissue, according to the patient’s needs and condition. All this is complemented with a special diet designed for the patient that helps cleanse the body and receiving treatments are most effective.
2. IMMUNOTHERAPY. The second phase is more complex, as it enters the process of immunotherapy, comprising the application of different cells, each with dose and number of specific applications according to the patient’s condition. The cells applied are:
3. MAINTENANCE. The third and final phase of maintenance treatment in which the patient this phase takes home with some tumor vaccines so that they are applied according to the physician. These vaccines work in a complex way in the levels of cellular and humoral immunity mediated immunity and stimulate the formation and activation of helper T cells are cultured from the patient’s blood that represents its own internal environment, which is unique, and its preparation has stages that favor the development of antigen peptides and other immunogenic compounds that help increase immune functions of the body.
The vaccine is sterile as it is prepared from the blood of the patient, the side effects that are typically associated with other procedures are not experienced in this treatment, except for a small increase in temperature, fatigue, and for a period of 6 to 48 hours, some tenderness in the tumor area after the treatment administered. They have duration of 6 months at a temperature of 6 ° C (normal cooling), the application is 10 days and the number of vials will depend on the patient’s condition and the basic treatment of each.
Cytokines (from Cito “cell” and – Kinos “movement”) are proteins, peptides or glycoproteins and are substances that are secreted by specific cells of the immune system. It is they who are responsible for intercellular communication and activation, and therefore have an effect on other cells. They can work both locally and remotely to enhance or suppress immunity. In cancer treatment, cytokines are generally used to improve immunity. The term “cytokine” refers to the immuno-modulating agents such as interleukins, interferons, tumor necrosis factor, granulocyte colony-stimulating factor and macrophage. These medicines are also called biologic response modifiers.
Experience has shown that a comprehensive immune therapy, causes inflammation of the connective tissue with its cytokine cascade, and may increase activation, mobilization, and maturation of dendritic cells and behold the effectiveness of vaccines.
