Discover how the Dendritic Cell Therapy (DCT) for cancer treatment works in detail:

Cancer can be a daunting diagnosis, but hope is on the horizon. Recent advancements in immunotherapy, including Nobel Prize-winning research by scientists like R. Steinman, P. Allison, and T. Honjo, have led to innovative treatments like Dendritic Cell Therapy (DCT) that empower the body’s immune system to detect and destroy cancer cells without side effects. At every step of the journey, Immunyo is here to support you as your healthcare provider in developing a personalized treatment plan for the best possible outcome.

What is Immunotherapy with Dendritic Cells?


Blood draw and separation of blood cells in the lab.


Careful cultivation of blood cells into dendritic cells.


Priming of dendritic cells with cancer


Injection of the DCT serum into the patient’s body.


Empowering the body’s immune system to find and eliminate cancer cells for a more comprehensive and personalized treatment.

Finally a treatment that is accessible to anyone who needs it!

The immune system has an amazing ability to kill cancer cells on its own, and dendritic cells are the “guardians” in the immune system that inform T-cells and other immune cells – the “soldiers” – about the presence of enemy cells in the body. During the laboratory process of Immunyo  millions of dendritic cells are produced. Once this highly concentraded DC serum is ready, it is injected into the patient’s body, where the cells start instructing the whole immune system to fight tumour cells.

The difference that Dendritic Cell Treatment makes

Interview with Immunyo Expert

It’s important to know that cancer treatment can be a difficult and stressful journey, both physically and emotionally. That’s why it’s essential to consider all of your options when it comes to therapy.

One thing to keep in mind is that reducing the side effects of cancer treatment can make adjuvant therapies more effective in fighting the cause of the disease. This is where Dendritic Cell Therapy (DCT) comes in. By boosting the immune system, DCT can help reduce the stress of other cancer therapies, making them more effective in targeting the root cause of the cancer.

DCT can be used either as a primary treatment or in conjunction with other therapies, without excluding any other treatment options. It’s a safe and effective way to support the body’s natural defences in the fight against cancer.

How does the Therapy work?


Chemotherapy is a commonly used treatment for cancer, but it’s important to know that it can have some side effects that may impact your overall health.


Radiation therapy is a treatment option that is often used as a primary therapy for some types of cancer. It’s important to note that it can have some side effects and functional limitations.


Surgery is a fast method to remove cancer tissue, but it’s not always the best option depending on the tumour’s location.

The big difference between these conventional methods and Dendritic Cell Therapy is that these traditional methods don't usually address the underlying cause of cancer. That's why scientists are exploring other options.

What is the best Cancer Treatment?

As a medical model, we understand that the vast amount of clinical papers published about Dendritic Cell therapy can be overwhelming for patients and their families. However, it is important to note that these papers demonstrate the effectiveness of DCT and its interaction with other treatments, as well as its potential to treat specific types of cancer.
Here we provide you with some examples of these studies to help you better understand the benefits of DCT. Please keep in mind that each case is unique, and it is essential to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the best treatment plan for each patient.

Scientific studies proving the efficacy of DCT:

Cancer cells emit enzymes that can cloak them from the immune system, making it difficult for the body’s own dendritic cells to recognize them as a threat.

At Immunyo, we use laboratory-matured dendritic cells to combat this process. By priming the dendritic cells with the specific antigen of the patient’s cancer, we can interrupt this cloaking mechanism and activate the immune system to target the cancer. This treatment, either alone or in combination with other therapies, has been shown to be safe and effective in numerous clinical studies.
