Cell based immunotherapy is a major entity of cancer immunotherapy. This involves immune cells such as the Natural killer Cells (NK cells), Lymphokine Activated killer cell (LAK), Cytotoxic T Lymphocytes (CTLs), Dendritic Cells (DC), etc., which are either made active in vivo by administering certain cytokines such as Interleukins or they are isolated, enriched and transfused to the patient to fight against cancer
Depending on the type of tumor, radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy may be required before or after surgery.
Chemotherapy uses medications that destroy the cancer cells.
Radiation therapy uses direct beams of radiation (forms of X-rays) to burn or destroy the cancer cells, and is effective for certain tumors and types of cancer. The radiation department will combine an experienced radiation oncology team, and will provide the most advanced technology we can offer that will provide the best chance for healing and recovery.
