Cancers stands among the leading causes of death worldwide, with approximate 14 million new cases and 8.2 million cancer related deaths. Cancer is defined as the uncontrolled growth of cells which also affects the surrounding healthy cells of body also it may affects the whole organ. It starts developing in one body part but it also propagate to the other parts of the body by the process called metastasis.
There are many causative factors for the development of cancer such as frequent contact with toxic substance, radiation, genetic defects etc.
Cancer cells work against the immune system and weakens it the disease becomes full blown and the patients are prone to many illness due to the weakened immune system
WHAT ARE DENDRITIC CELLS ?
Dendritic cells forms antigen cells that forms an important part of the immune system. Antigen cells are the only cells in our body that have the ability to induce a primary immune response. They have received scientific and clinical interest due to their role in anti-cancer responses.
HOW STEM CELL THERAPY WORKS FOR THE TREATMENT OF CANCER?
Dendritic Cell used in cancer therapy takes benefit of the normal role of dendritic cells as an immune responsive cells. These cells are present in every person’s bloodstream and is a blood constituent. Their function is to identify a foreign cell or foreign object in body, including cancer cells, process them and bring an immune response by bringing the foreign substances to the aim of the rest of the immune system (mostly T lymphocyte cells). The activated immune system is then able to circulate throughout the body and destroy the foreign particles present in the body. However, in case of cancer, the immune system usually fails. The tumours affect denritic cell development and differentiation and induced a failed response to the anti-tumour response.
Our therapy focuses on advancing the dendritic cells artificially and transferring them systemically which target the antigens or cancer cells better and are able to mount an immune response against the cancer cells.

TREATMENT OF CANCER BY THE STEM CELL THERAPY
- Blood and tissue samples are collected
- The collected samples then sent to laboratories for analysis
- After processing the sample the specific dendritic cells are selected to be used in the treatment
- Dendritic cells are then sent to the hospitals where the dendritic cells are then transfused to patient
- The dendritic cells are administered to patients intravenously
- After which the patients are sent to observation facility for few hours
