Q7 Is highly active NK cell therapy effective in the prevention of recurrence after surgery?

Cancer immune cell therapy after surgery does not prevent recurrence 100%. It has been reported, however, that patients who also used cancer immunotherapy had a clearly lower recurrence rate for gastric cancer, hepatoma and lung cancer.
This probably indicates that enhancement of patients’ original immunity resulted in lower recurrence rate.
Highly active NK (natural killer) cell therapy at our clinic very potently enhances the immunity of the body and therefore, can be expected to be highly effective in prevention of recurrence.
