Frequently asked questions

Q13 Is it fine to receive highly active NK cell therapy and vaccine therapy together?

In fact, it is a very good idea to combine these two therapies. This is true from a theoretical perspective as well.
NK (natural killer) cells are reported to be 100 times more effective than T cells in activating dendritic cells.
Therefore, administration of a large number of NK cells, rather than activated T cells, is considered to enhance the efficacy of vaccines and lead to induction of cancer-attacking T cells.
