The NANT Cancer Vaccine is the first combination immunotherapy protocol to orchestrate the delivery of metronomic low dose radiation and chemotherapy with molecularly informed tumor associated antigen vaccines and natural killer cells
, to activate the innate and adaptive immune system and to induce immunogenic cell death.
The study found that during pregnancy, a decline in the number of natural killer cells
that are a type of immune system cell, ripens conditions in the body for existing tumors to spread to new locations, reports Live Science.
In a series of patent applications, his team reports that CLA dramatically increases several families of infection-fighting white blood cells, including a type known as natural killer cells
Recent studies have shown that ADCC, mediated through certain receptors on the surface of many of the body's immune system cells such as white blood cells and natural killer cells
, can be activated by the use of IgG1 monoclonal antibodies.
Pre-clinical studies conducted at Sweden's Karolinska Institute have demonstrated that Vycellix's molecules significantly enhance cancer targeting cytotoxic lymphocytes such as cytotoxic T cells and natural killer cells
These then developed into thriving T cells and natural killer cells
, reports study coauthor Alain Fischer, an immunologist at Necker Hospital in Paris.
By its ability to activate caspase-1 with the resultant induction of IL-1beta), talabostat can stimulate the production of cytokines and chemokines that are known to promote anti-tumor responses by both the innate branch of the immune system involving neutrophils, macrophages and natural killer cells
, and the adaptive branch involving tumor-specific T lymphocytes.
It's basically just a lot of calories, but research suggests that it can suppress the natural killer cells
