In the immune system, Dendritic Cells learn and acquire information on foreign substances to attack and convey this information to immune cells in charge of the attack. Immune cells with high attacking ability attack enemy foreign substances based on the information provided by Dendritic Cells. Therefore, in order for immune cells to mount an effective attack against foreign substances (tumor cells), it is important for Dendritic Cells to have accurate and precise information.
In our HITV therapy, the tumor keeps producing attacking-immune-cell CTLs, and highly accurate CTLs are constantly flowing out of the vaccinated tumor into the bloodstream, which travel throughout the body in the blood and launch a powerful attack immediately upon detection of cancer cells. This action leads to the prevention of cancer metastasis and recurrence.
The time has finally come when we can expect cancer shrinkage or disappearance by IMMUNOTHERAPY alone for advanced cancer.
In the future, IMMUNOTHERAPY is expected to be the main player of cancer treatment, being supported by anticancer drugs and radiotherapy to speed up the healing process.
In the aging society, IMMUNOTHERAPY with fewer side effects will enable people to lead meaningful lives while maintaining their quality of life (QOL) without incurring great costs.
As I have treated patients from more than 15 countries and regions so far, ICVS Tokyo Clinic welcomes inquiries from people overseas.
