Q12 Is highly active NK cell therapy effective without combining it with anticancer agents?

Higher efficacy can be expected in combination with anticancer agents because of a synergistic effect, but it is not that the therapy is pointless without anticancer agents.
The treatment only with highly active NK (natural killer) cell therapy can enhance the immunity of the body beyond the normal level and therefore, is effective in improving patients’ QOL (quality of life) and delaying the progression of the cancer as much as possible.
