Frequently asked questions

Q8 Can any type of cancer be treated with highly active NK cell therapy?

Treatment with this therapy is possible for any type of cancer, except tumors derived from T lymphocytes (cells) or NK (natural killer) cells.
That is to say, leukemia, which is cancer of blood, cannot be treated using this method.
