Cutting edge treatments by top cancer specialists around the world

Modern medical science agrees that immunotherapy represents the next great chapter in cancer treatment

Dendritic cell therapy

Immunotherapy with dendritic cells is a biological treatment against cancer that leverages the patient’s own immune system and can act as a cancer vaccination. In this process, immune cells from the patient’s own blood are strengthened in a laboratory and trained to fight cancer cells.

Oncolytic Virus Therapy

Fight and kill cancer cells with a virus: Oncolytic viruses can only multiply in tumour cells and thus destroy them, while healthy cells can defend themselves against the virus.. Through infection, the tumour cells send danger signals that alert and activate the immune system. In this way, the virus potentiates the effect of Immune-vaccines such as dendritic cell vaccines (DCT).

Therapeutic hyperthermia

Use of the biological effects of artificially induced heat to kill cancer cells and increase sensitivity to radiation.

Dendritic Cell Therapy

Immunotherapy

Dendritic Cell (DC) Therapy, also known as Dendritic Cell Vaccine, is a newly emerging and potent form of immune therapy, ideal for treating cancer. It is an immune therapy that harnesses the body’s own immune system to fight cancer.
The dendritic cell itself plays a vital role in recognising and processing foreign antigens and presenting it to the T-Cells, which play a central role in the immune response.

Supporting your immune system

Dendritic cells are powerful cells, however, they are usually not present in adequate quantity to allow for a potent immune response. In dendritic cell therapy, blood cells (monocytes) are being harvest from the patient and taken to a highly specialised laboratory, where dendritic cells are produced. These dendritic cells are then returned to the patient to allow mass dendritic cell participation, therefore activating optimal immune response.

“In the treatment of tumour diseases, it is becoming increasingly clear that there is neither ‘the tumour’ nor ‘the patient’. Standardised approaches that do not take the individual situation into account are shown to be of limited use.”

Oncolytic Virus-Based Anti-Cancer Therapy in combination with DCT (dendritic cell therapy)

Beating cancer with a virus:
Cancer virotherapy is an official, innovative, and effective cancer treatment using a special virus that can find and destroy cancer cells in the human body.

Cancer Virotherapy destroys cancer cells

Virotherapy destroys cancer cells selectively without affecting the healthy cells of the body, this therapy has no side effects. Cancer Virotherapy stimulates the body’s natural defense mechanisms by activating the immune system, which is often suppressed by other treatment methods, it is a safe therapy, with promising results in various types of cancer. Tumour cells often lack an innate immune defence against viruses.
Viruses are known to trigger many different diseases. It is less well known that certain viruses are used to treat cancer. More than 100 years ago, doctors observed for the first time that patients were cured of their cancer after infectious diseases. Systematic studies have shown that there are types of viruses that selectively attack cancer cells. They are called oncolytic viruses. In October 2015, an oncolytic virus was approved for the first time in the USA, and in 2016 also in Europe and Australia, for the treatment of malignant melanoma.

Tumour cells cannot defend themselves against viruses.

Tumour cells are particularly sensitive to viruses because, unlike healthy cells, they cannot produce enough interferon to fight off the infection. Therefore, viruses can multiply unhindered in cancer cells. This alerts the immune system and triggers a defense reaction against tumour cells that takes effect throughout the body. Healthy body cells can stop the multiplication by producing interferon and are therefore not damaged, so that the virus treatment is almost free of side effects.

The Newcastle Disease Virus (NDV)

Certain oncolytic viruses can only multiply in tumour cells and thus destroy them, while healthy cells can defend themselves against the virus. The Newcastle Disease Virus (NDV) belongs to this group. It is completely harmless to humans: it reproduces exclusively in human tumour cells without damaging healthy cells. Through infection, the tumour cells send danger signals that alert and activate the immune system. In this way, NDV potentiates the effect of Immune-vaccines

Unmask cancer cells and fight them effectively with the patient's own vaccine

Once a tumour has established itself, it develops biological camouflage mechanisms to evade access by the immune system. Repeated vaccinations with a cancer immune vaccine enable the patient’s immune system to detect these camouflage mechanisms, recognise tumour cells in the body as dangerous and fight them effectively. Like a conventional vaccination, the immune system can form an immunological memory against the tumour antigens, so that a long-term effect is given.

Production of the vaccine

The first step is to take a blood sample. From the monocytes, a group of white blood cells, the laboratory grows dendritic cells. These are brought to maturity in the laboratory and “loaded” with information about tumour components and viral danger signals. After vaccination, the dendritic cells present these tumour-specific molecules to the patient’s immune system and thus activate the T-cells. Their task is to destroy diseased cells. Based on the information, the T-cells can now recognise and attack the tumour cells throughout the body.

Dendritic Cells in Oncolytic Virus-Based Anti-Cancer Therapy

Dendritic cells (DCs) are specialized antigen-presenting cells that have a notable role in the initiation and regulation of innate and adaptive immune responses. In the context of cancer, appropriately activated DCs can induce anti-tumor immunity by activating innate immune cells and tumor-specific lymphocytes that target cancer cells. However, the tumor microenvironment (TME) imposes different mechanisms that facilitate the impairment of DC functions, such as inefficient antigen presentation or polarization into immunosuppressive DCs. These tumor-associated DCs thus fail to initiate tumor-specific immunity, and indirectly support tumor progression. Hence, there is increasing interest in identifying interventions that can overturn DC impairment within the TME. Many reports thus far have studied oncolytic viruses (OVs), viruses that preferentially target and kill cancer cells, for their capacity to enhance DC-mediated anti-tumor effects.

Universal application possibilities – effective in nearly all types of cancer

Virotherapy can be used at different stages of cancer and during all cancer treatment processes, it can also be used during palliative cancer treatment.

In summary this is a cancer treatment that is:
  • Safe and well-tolerated:
  • Innovative and scientifically proven
  • Natural, non-toxic, not genetically modified
  • Double efficacy – antitumor effect and immunomodulating activity
  • 4-6 times better prevent the possibility of metastasizing*
  • More than 15 years of clinical experience
  • Easy to administer – Subcutaneous injections.
  • Personalised to your needs.
Can be combined with:
  • Chemotherapy, Radiation, Immune checkpoint inhibitors
  • Before or after surgery – to improve effectiveness of surgery
  • With other integrative cancer treatment methods
  • Can increase effectiveness from current therapy up to 60%

Hyperthermia

High temperature can kill cancer cells

Hyperthermia generates heat to create more blood supply to the area. Because cancers have such a high rate of metabolism, when they are warmed up with far infrared heat for example, they literally over-metabolize themselves to death.

It can make some cancer cells more sensitive to radiation

Some cancers are associated with viruses. You can make the body produce more heat shock proteins – one of the most common proteins in life on the planet, widely distributed all throughout Nature. Shock proteins were discovered when they exposed cell cultures and critters to heat shock. The body uses them to respond to all manner of stresses. They allow healthy cells to persist in the face of adversity. Some cancer cells can use it to for their own survival, so it cuts both ways.

Concerned about prostate cancer?

Talk to us. It may change your life

Once diagnosed, people with prostate cancer are often faced with the decision to choose between surgical removal of the prostate and radiation, often without knowing the full facts about side effects or the real risk involved.
The most important thing we can say to you is this: do not let yourself be rushed or put under pressure. Prostate cancer progresses slowly. Also, the traditional “radical” therapy (surgery and/or radiation) only adds a small amount to life expectancy for low-grade cancers—and probably for high-grade cancers too. It can also involve serious side effects: impotence in up to 70% of cases, incontinence in 20-50%.

Are you looking for most advanced treatment that is?

  • – fast
  • – effective
  • – and pain free
  • – no incontinence
  • – no ipotence

Then you should know about:

NanoKnife

A pioneering treatment for prostate cancer — the first nerve sparing prostate cancer treatment. Unlike traditional prostate cancer treatments, NanoKnife kills the prostate cancer cells instead of removing or irradiating the entire prostate. It’s a onetime two-hour procedure. You are clear in days, with no side effects… no incontinence, no impotence.

Why NanoKnife?

NanoKnife is a revolution in prostate cancer treatment, using IRE (Irreversible Electroporation) Technology to destroy cancer cells with ultra-fast exposure to a powerful electric current that does not touch surrounding tissue. It is done in a minimally invasive, pain-free way. It will not cause impotence or incontinence. There is no pain and no scars either. It will only take approximately two hours. You will be able to do all previous activities after only two to three days.

Key features:
– No pain
– No impotence
– No incontinence
– No cuts or incisions
– No cuts or incisions

Also, especially important: Get accurately diagnosed

MRI

MRI is a more precise way to diagnose prostate cancer

A new approach: When the possibility of prostate cancer appears, usually as the result of an elevated PSA level, the next step, traditionally, is to recommend a transrectal punch biopsy—which delivers a success rate of just 30-35%.
That is not good enough for you. Use the most up-to-date procedures: MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and MRI-guided and transperineal 3D mapping, giving a successful detection rate of 85-100%. Avoid unnecessary invasive procedures.

LECYTA: OncoPherese

Oncopheresis – LECYTA

For decades, the main mystery within oncology has been the reason why the immune system does not destroy cancer cells as soon as they are formed. Cancer cells are abnormal in many ways, therefore the immune system should be able to detect them in non-immunocompromised people.

Thanks to research by Professor Dr Lentz and his team/and others, we have now come to learn that cancer cells shield themselves with immune inhibitors, making it impossible for the immune system to detect. This can be compared to the way military aircrafts release chaffs and flares to fend off missiles.

Researchers from all over the world have discovered that these immune inhibitors are elevated within the blood of patients with all types of solid-tumour cancer. These immune inhibitors play a key role in protecting tumours from the body’s defence, the immune system.

 

An extracorporeal technology

LECYTA is a state of the art technology that removes immune inhibitors from the blood and the tumour microenvironment via an extracorporeal system. Once these immune inhibitors decrease, the immune barrier will break, allowing our own white blood cells to attack the cancer cells.

With this technology, the physician is able to reduce the level of immune inhibitors to a specific threshold, at which tumour inflammation and destruction occurs at a faster pace than the formation of new tumour mass, but slow enough for the body to process the resulting necrotic debris. LECYTA causes not injury to the normal cells, resulting in no significant side effects.

A non-toxic alternative

LECYTA is a non-toxic alternative for immunotherapy in cancer/ immunological cancer treatment. Only the substances that shield cancer cells are being removed from your body through a medical device, resulting in your body not being exposed to potentially harmful medication.

The cancer’s shield is removed within its direct microenvironment, therefore working directly on the primary tumour and all existing metastases.

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)

Photosensitizing agents, along with light can kill cancer cells

Photodynamic therapy ( PDT ) is a treatment that uses a medication, called a photosensitizer or photosensitizing agent, and a particular type of light. When photosensitizers are exposed to a specific wavelength of light, they produce a form of oxygen that kills nearby cells

In conjunction with immunotherapy for tumor suppression

Each photosensitizer is activated by light of a specific wavelength. This wavelength determines how far the light can travel into the body. Thus, doctors use specific photosensitizers and wavelengths of light to treat different areas of the body with PDT
