program details
Target disease: All cancer patients. Cancer stem cell spreading in the body causes metastasis or recurrence of cancer and only natural killer cell (NK cell) can make a sharpshooting on it. Conventional immune cell therapy using T cell has been popularly used, whose killing power is weak and which does not work when the target cancer cell type does not adjust to the T cell. ANK (Amplified Natural Killer) immune cell therapy where NK cells are expected to have strong killing power has an effect for all cancers including blood cancer. Large amounts of lymphocytes containing NK cells are collected from the patient using a blood component separation apparatus, collected NK cells transfer to the culture center in Kyoto to be cultured and amplified, and in our clinic which is a Central Medical Institution for ANK, ANK cells are administered through intravenous drip infusion to patients. In hospitalization is not required, in other words, this treatment can be performed with outpatient visit. The lymphocyte culture must take for 3 weeks and ANK drip infusion is conducted 2 times a week, so this treatment takes for 6 weeks including 12 times of drip totally. Depends on the necessity, along with the treatment, molecular target drugs (Herceptin or Erbitax) will be administered. Bacically, molecular target drug is taken once a week.
