The concept of immune cell therapy

The basic concept of cancer immune cell therapy at New City Osaki Clinic

1. Immunotherapy is highly effective when it is used in combination with standard therapies such as the administration of anticancer agents

2. It is important to use the largest possible amount of NK cells to dramatically enhance immunity.

3. The efficacy of immunotherapy cannot be evaluated only by CT images.

4. At the New City Osaki Clinic, physicians proceed with treatment while regularly testing the changes in immunity.

We place a particular emphasis on the quantitative effect of immunotherapy, that is, to what extent immunity is enhanced by immunotherapy. Enhancement of immunity means, for example, an increase in “cancer-attacking (cancer antigen-specific) T lymphocytes” in the blood in peptide vaccine or dendritic cell vaccine therapies and likewise, an increase in the number or activity of NK cells in NK cell therapy. How can we call a treatment “immunotherapy” if immunity is not strengthened after its administration? We regularly collect blood samples and examine changes in the immunity of the whole body using six indices of immunity to evaluate the immunological effect of the “Osaki method” of highly active NK cell therapy.

5. Our NK cell therapy is the “Osaki method” (patented), which is different from the other NK cell therapies.

6. Important issues that patients who are to be treated with immunotherapy should understand

7. To patients who do not receive standard therapies such as the administration of anticancer agents
