Patient reviews
5/5
Diagnosis: Melanoma
Rating:

Alexander’s experience is unique in its own way. Melanoma is still considered one of the most malignant tumors. And if she gave metastases, then the patient has little hope of surviving. Alexander began treatment in Russia, where he had a birthmark removed, which began to darken and bleed. During repeated operations, regional lymph nodes and organs located near the location of the primary focus were removed. But it did not help. A young man arrived at the Hadassah clinic with stage 4 melanoma, when the metastases had already spread throughout the body. The clinic’s specialists, led by the developer of the melanoma vaccine, Professor Michal Lotem, significantly extended Alexander’s life and gave him a chance for a cure. 2 years after the immunotherapy, Alexander returned to the clinic and spoke about his experience in fighting the disease.

5/5
Diagnosis:
Rating:

When I learned about cancer immunotherapy, I thought it was something new and experimental. But melanoma left me no choice and I already agreed to everything. When I came to Israel, it turned out that cancer vaccines for local doctors are like flu shots for us, a common thing. Has passed or has taken place a course of immunotherapy. Until now, under the impression that medicine can be at such a level that the professionalism of doctors is simply the highest. Yes, everything is at the highest level there, and communication is all based on respect and trust.

4/5
Diagnosis:
Rating:

I chose the Solingen clinic for myself. Even when I applied for treatment, I knew that it would be more expensive in Germany than in Israel or Turkey, but I still went to a German clinic. The decisive factor was that in Solingen, patients are prescribed only proven and reliable drugs. The result was even better than I expected.

5/5
Diagnosis: Prostate cancer
Rating:

I had prostate cancer. At a time when our doctors had only suspicions, the Israelis were already able to diagnose me almost immediately. Needless to say, no time is wasted there. Just arrived, immediately to the doctor. Then examinations with a break for food and some sleep. And as soon as the diagnosis was confirmed, the day of the operation was immediately appointed. I didn’t even have time to be afraid of the operation. Irradiation postoperative is already finished. The chemotherapy is still going on. I feel good.

How does immunotherapy work?

Every day, several tens of thousands of mutated cells Лечение рака - иммунотерапия в Израиле appear in the human body, which can potentially give rise to a cancerous tumor. These defective cells are recognized by the immune system and promptly destroyed. Oncological disease develops only if there is a malfunction in the immune system. As a result, the tumor can grow for years and make itself felt only when there are not so many opportunities for its radical removal.

The cells of the human body, which, as a result of genetic breakdowns, have switched to malignant growth, differ from healthy cells. This allows oncoimmunologists to create individual vaccines for patients – drugs that enable the immune system to recognize the tumor and direct all its efforts to destroy it. The altered cells are destroyed, while the normal cells remain intact.

In practice, this is implemented as follows:

  • Based on the antigens of the patient’s tumor tissue, an individual vaccine is created.
  • Specialists work with the patient’s own dendritic cells, which can inform the immune system.
  • The vaccine is “enhanced” by an oncolytic virus that can only enter cancer cells and does not affect healthy ones.
  • The vaccine containing the virus is injected into the patient’s body.
  • Additionally, local and controlled general hyperthermia procedures can be prescribed to activate the immune system

Let’s consider each of the stages in more detail.

Cancer vaccination

The cancer vaccine is autologous, meaning it is made from tumor samples taken from a specific patient. From the fragments of cancerous tissue obtained during the biopsy, specific antigen proteins are isolated, which must be recognized by the immune system to effectively destroy the tumor.

Oncolytic virus

For treatment, a certain type of virus is used, which can infect and multiply only in tumor cells, ignoring healthy ones. The penetration of the virus into the cell during cancer immunotherapy becomes an additional marker for the attack of the immune system.

Complementary hyperthermia

Depending on the method of the procedure, locoregional, transurethral radiofrequency, and moderate general hyperthermia are distinguished. A local or general increase in body temperature is a physiological mechanism that allows the body’s defenses to fight the disease.

It is not clear from the explanation what it is. As far as I know, targeted therapy is not related to immunotherapy. See TOR for targeted therapy

Antibody therapy involves the use of specific monoclonal antibodies in the form of finished drugs, exactly the same as targeted therapy.  https://cyberleninka.ru/article/n/terapiya-monoklonalnymi-antitelami-panatseya-ili-palliativ

What types of cancer are already being treated?

To date, the treatment of brain glioma, prostate cancer, lung cancer, some types of leukemia, neuroblastoma and others has been developed. From year to year, the list of oncological diseases for which immunotherapy can be successfully used is expanding.

What result can you expect?

Иммунотерапия при раке, результатCancer cannot be cured with immunotherapy alone.

However, the method allows:

  • Reduce the growth rate of the tumor node.
  • To increase the effectiveness of ongoing surgical treatment, chemotherapy, or radiation therapy.
  • Increase the likelihood of the patient going into remission.
  • It is better to control the disease during remission, preventing the development of relapse.

Immunotherapy gives the best results in cases where the tumor is first surgically removed, and then antitumor vaccination with an autologous vaccine is performed simultaneously or after a course of radiation or chemotherapy.

How can I get help paying for treatment?

The procedure for creating an individual vaccine, taking into account all the necessary preliminary examinations, is quite expensive.

The price of a vaccine for cancer immunotherapy starts from 18 thousand US dollars, diagnostics costs 4 thousand.

A number of charitable foundations help pay for the treatment of Experts Medical patients. The average amount of financial assistance is about 22 thousand dollars.

Some of our patients received assistance for immunotherapy in the amount of 44 thousand US dollars.

Where can I get immunotherapy?

Где пройти иммунотерапиюThe method is innovative and high-tech. In this regard, sufficient experience in its application has been accumulated only in a small number of foreign centers.  These are the IOZK Immuno-Oncological Center (Cologne, Germany), the Children’s Hospital of San Joan de Deu (Barcelona, Spain), the University Hospital (Cologne, Germany).

In most developed countries, cancer immunotherapy is used:

  • Germany,
  • Israel
  • Japan,
  • USA,
  • Turkey,
  • South Korea and so on.

In Ukraine and Russia in recent years, this method of cancer therapy has begun to develop, there are difficulties with drugs. So, for example, only 12 immunotherapy preparations are registered in Ukraine (more than 70 are already used in world practice). In addition, in European clinics, doctors have much more experience in applying this technique.

For which types of cancer is immunotherapy effective?

The scope of immunotherapy is constantly expanding. Immunotherapy shows the greatest effectiveness in the treatment of lung cancer and melanoma. At the moment, it can also be used in the treatment of:

  • pancreatic cancer,
  • Hodgkin’s lymphoma,
  • neuroblastoma,
  • prostate cancer,
  • bladder cancer,
  • kidney cancer and so on.

So, for example, with progressive melanoma, which is difficult to treat by other methods, the effectiveness of immunotherapy is about 40%. In general, stable remission is achieved in 10-30% of patients after a course of immunotherapy. Considering that these people were doomed in the past due to the inability of doctors to stop cancer with traditional methods, it can be said that immunotherapy offers hope for many patients to overcome cancer.

Another property of immunotherapy that scientists emphasize is that after a course of taking drugs, the immune system “remembers” cancer cells. And if after some time they reappear in the patient’s body, the immune system immediately turns on the mechanism for their destruction.

How is immunotherapy carried out?

Как проходит иммунотерапия

Immunotherapy in Israel, Germany, Turkey and other countries can be used as the main or additional method of therapy. So, in the first stages of the disease, it is usually used together with chemotherapy, radiation therapy or surgery. In these cases, the task of immunotherapy is to destroy the smallest cancer cells that could remain after the destruction of the tumor, and provide a long period of remission. With metastatic cancer, this type of treatment can be the main one. According to researchers, at the stage of formation of metastases, immunotherapy can reduce the size of the tumor by up to 60%.

Before a patient is given immunotherapy, studies are conducted to determine how sensitive cancer cells in the body will be to this type of treatment. For this, several analyzes are done: cytogenetic, immunogenetic, and immunophenotyping.

There are two types of immunotherapy:

  • Local. The immunotherapy drug is injected directly into the tumor area.
  • System. The drug is administered intravenously.

The name of the drug, dose and number of procedures are prescribed individually.

Cancer Immunotherapy: Side Effects

Although compared to chemotherapy, immunotherapy has far fewer side effects, they can still occur. They depend on what type of immunotherapy is used. Side effects may occur due to overstimulation of the immune system. So, minor symptoms (eg, nausea, fever, skin rashes) are possible. But in some rare cases, autoimmune disorders (such as type I diabetes or arthritis) can occur.

Immunotherapy: how much does it cost

Иммунотерапия: сколько стоит лечение

The price of immunotherapy depends on what type of drugs will be used, what is the dosage and duration of the course. Thus, the manufacture of a drug individually from the patient’s biomaterial will cost more than the use of a ready-made drug. It must be understood that doctors will be able to name the cost of treatment only after tumor studies are carried out.
