How Does Dendritic Cell Therapy Work?
Dendritic cells are found in the bloodstream and are responsible for identifying threats which the body’s immune system needs to respond to. When cancer develops in the body, dendritic cells work as antigen presenters for the immune system, ultimately making cancer visible for the killer cells.
These immune cells then attack the cancer and cause cancer cells to die off. By concentrating your body’s dendritic cells, sensitizing them to your specific cancer, and then reintroducing those cells into your system, the ‘trained’ cells can boost your body’s capacity to work against the cancer.
The goal is to have your specific cancer battled by your own enhanced or boosted self-immunity—a tailored cancer treatment vaccine.
Combining this therapy with immune modulation treatments that increase the amount of immune cells.
