Increasing T-cells to fight cancer

T-cells are the body’s soldiers and guardians. When a patient’s immune system is weak T-cell counts are low.  It is important to build up T-cell numbers and aggressiveness.

“Attack of the T-Cells”

 

 

T-cells attacking cancer cell

The immune system attacks things it recognizes as foreign and abnormal. This recognition involves binding to very specific molecular sequences called “antigens”. These compounds, on the surface of the foreign (tumor) cells, stimulate what are called cytotoxic T-cells.  These T-cells bind to the cancer cells and inject cytokines which kill the abnormal cell.

 

Training your army of T-cells

Training your army of T-cells

Not only will these cells kill any cells displaying the antigen they recognize, but they will also multiply and pass on this information to other T-cells in the body. We call it, ” Training your army”.
