Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I´m eligible for DCT?
All cancer types that form a solid tumour or carcinoma are fought with dendritic cells, including metastasis are suitable for dendritic cell therapy.
Who would not be eligible?
Some types of leukaemia do not respond to dendritic therapy. It is important to ensure the patient can cope with a blood draw of 200ml therefore the Haemoglobin must be high enough. If a patient has recently received a blood transfusion, then they will not be eligible until at least 2 weeks post.
Will my treating specialist recommend this treatment?
The majority of specialists are aware of this therapy although it is not yet mainstream in treatment protocols. As with all new treatments, it takes time to convince a large part of the medical profession. The benefit this therapy has is that there is no harm done to the body, yet it has higher success rates according to many clinical reports.
I really don’t want chemotherapy, how long can I avoid this and try DCT before I might need it?
Choosing DCT as a non-invasive and non-toxic first option does not limit or cancel the opportunity to have any other treatment afterwards if deemed necessary.
What is the right moment to receive DCT?
Dendritic cells need to be primed with cancerous material (e.g. antigens) that only exist in an affected body. The earlier the therapy is given, the easier it is for the immune system, to fight the cancer. On the other hand – even in terminal stages results can show prolonged life and improved quality of life dependant on the case. As well as a palliative treatment DCT might – if cure is no longer expected – reduce pain and enhance quality of life.
How can I verify the expected success rates?
You can undertake a web research, find clinical studies on the cancer you are confronted with on our website or talk to our experts in English, German, Spanish and other languages. For your Information at last count there were more than 70 000 medical Publications on DCT and cancer.
How quickly can we see results?
This is dependent on individual cases.
What are the costs – and who covers them?
The price depends on the chosen plan. Private insurances cover the costs partly or fully in some cases but most of our patients pay themselves. Please inquire your personal proposal. (Inquire for proposal)
How can I engage myself in my own recovery?
The development of cancer consists of long term factors. Some of them are determined by genetic factors – or just bad luck. Others are based on our own circumstances or habits. Immu7 Onco Support assists on a self conscious handling of the personal heath status and guides the way back to health – not just away from the disease.
Where can I get the therapy?
The treatment takes place in private clinics in Gibraltar and Marbella, Spain under expert medical supervision. Whilst Immucura is one of the only few providers of DCT, they have combined DCT with a unique immune regulator IMT.
