What is immunotherapy and how can it be used to treat cancer?

It offers a more sustainable approach, which provides long-term protection against cancer

The human body is perfectly designed for life. It is formed by a great variety of cells that group together to form tissues and organs. These organs, when grouped together and when they contribute to function similarly, create systems.

The immune system is a heterogeneous network of cells, tissues, and organs whose main function is to fight infections and other substances in the body. These substances, known as antigens, can range from germs to bacteria or viruses, chemical or toxic substances, and they can also be cells affected by cancer.

Once the antigen is recognized within the immune system, it is attacked. This reaction is known as an immune response and it mainly consists of producing antibodies. Antibodies are proteins that attack, weaken, and destroy antigens.

Can the immune system be used to fight cancer?

The action of using the immune system to fight ailments is known as immunotherapy. It consists of stimulating this system by supplying certain substances to strengthen it and, subsequently, having greater efficiency when fighting diseases.

Immunotherapy offers a more sustainable approach, which provides long-term protection against cancer. Immunity Therapy Center, located in Tijuana, a few minutes away from the San Ysidro Port of Entry, at Blvd. Padre Kino no. 10133, Zona Urbana Río, and a few meters away from the access to the Tijuana International Airport, offers immunotherapy treatments against cancer, applied and monitored by specialist doctors.

This therapy uses immune cells to specifically attack cancerous cells. Compared to chemotherapy, immunotherapy is less invasive and it has less adverse effects. This therapy is carried out by obtaining immune cell samples, also known as T cells, that naturally destroy pathogens and cancerous cells, and subsequently, the tumor cells that are usually stealthy, of intrinsic immune cells, and then these are returned to the patient intravenously.

Generally speaking, T cells regulate the activity through control spots and deactivate their offensive potential when they get in contact with healthy cells. Cancerous cells take advantage of this spot to deactivate T cells. Through immunotherapy, immune cells continue to function and when they get in contact with damaged cells, they eliminate cancerous cells.

However, as this is a pathological progressive progress that can be diagnosed in advanced stages, it may be necessary to apply multiple treatments to attack the problem enough. One of the advantages of immunotherapy is that it can be combined with other cancer treatments to improve and accelerate prognosis.

With more than 20 years of experience, Immunity Therapy Center offers an alternative to traditional medicine, providing patients with new possibilities when fighting issues caused by cancer.
