Problems with the immune system are a major factor in cancer progression. As the cells in our organs replace themselves every day as part of the natural regeneration process, sometimes they grow too fast, leading to tumors. A healthy immune system will react to unusual cell growth and eliminate it before the person is even aware of a problem. But when the immune system does not detect the cancerous cells the disease continues to develop.
At Angeles Health we can remove some naturally occurring dendritic cells from the patient and pass them through a treatment to activate their cancer sensitivity and present them with information from the tumor. When the cells are inserted back into the patient they are able to isolate any cancerous cells and the immune system fights them accordingly.
PROSTACIT uses prostatic epithelium, a specific agent that helps the immune system find prostate cells and acts as a potent inducer of the response of cytotoxic T lymphocytes.
PROSTACIT is a viable treatment option for late stage as well as early stage prostate cancer patients.
PROSTACIT PROSTATE CANCER TREATMENT AT ANGELES HEALTH
PROSTACIT Prostate Autologous Cell Immuno-Therapy is different at Angeles Health. When PROVENGE® (the US equivalent) is applied in US hospitals, prostate cancer patients find themselves as outpatients, with their cells being sent to external laboratories and having to wait for them to be sent back so they can have the second treatment.
At Angeles Health patients are in-patients and stay with us for two weeks. We have an in-house laboratory that processes your cells on site, so there is not so much of a wait. This time also means we are able to implement other elements of the alternative cancer treatment program we have here at Angeles Health, such as systemic hyperthermia, to enhance the effect of the treatment and further weaken the malignant cell, offering you a more holistic treatment and a better chance of success.
PROSTACIT treatment is also about half the cost of its US equivalent.
The Angeles Health Functional Oncology cancer treatment program is always offered on a highly personalized basis. First we need to determine if this treatment is right for your condition.
