While every patient’s treatment is unique, many patients have similar questions about our treatment.
Below, we’ve answered frequently asked questions. But, as always, do not hesitate to reach out directly to answer any specific question that you may have about our treatment.
Our treatment starts with collecting both a sample of a patient’s tumor and their own Dendritic Cells. In the Immunocine Laboratory, our team educates these Dendritic Cells to recognize and initiate a comprehensive attack against the cancer cells. Our treatment is completely personalized to each patient and their specific cancer.
As these are your own cells and nothing foreign is introduced to your body, our treatment is actually natural and safe despite being incredibly effective. Our treatment paradigm revolves around your body’s natural ability to destroy the cancer cells if it knows what cells to attack specifically.
Even including other cancer treatments beyond Dendritic Cell Treatments, our treatment is the only treatment to stimulate a TH1 High Response against a patient’s cancer cells.
This is the same response generated during a viral infection and corresponds with the rapid activation of specific immune cells capable of destroying any targeted cell in the body. Our Team does this through a patented process that effectively “Double Loads” the Dendritic Cell, in a very similar manner to an invading virus.
In a viral response, your body’s primary defense is to destroy the virally infected cells before they infect other cells. Instead of targeting the virally infected cells in your body, our treatment enacts the same response but instead targets the cancer cells.
Other than the FDA Clinical Trials for Glioblastoma and Pancreatic Cancer, Immunocine is the only treatment center where you can receive this proprietary Dendritic Cell Therapy.
Peer-reviewed research has proven time and time again that Double Loading is the only known way to fully activate a Th1 immune response, which is necessary to engage a patient’s Killer T cells to destroy the cancer cells. In comparison, single loading only generates a limited immune response.
Treatment Administration – Immunocine’s Treatment is one of the few treatments that use an Interventional Radiologist to administer the treatment via an ultrasound-guided injection. The Interventional Radiologist targets the injection as close as possible to the patient’s lymph node closest to their tumor.
This step is also essential to ensure the Dendritic Cells immediately start activating an immune response. Other Dendritic Cell Treatments rely on intramuscular injection or IV infusion which will delay treatment onset and risk the Dendritic Cells not fully activating the Immune System.

While some patients choose to stay in Cancun for all six weeks, many patients split their stay into two trips. As there are extended periods of downtime to allow the Immune System to respond to the treatment, many patients will come to Cancun for two weeks to start the treatment and return for a two-week trip to complete the treatment.
Patients with tumors in sensitive locations or in their bones may also feel a varying level of soreness at the tumor sites as a result of the immune response.
Fortunately, these symptoms will reduce over time and will disappear once the patient’s cancer has been eliminated. Furthermore, these symptoms are only the result of the Immune System attacking the patient’s cancer and are a positive sign that the treatment is working.
We know that this is a price that may not be accessible to many patients. Unfortunately, each treatment is personalized to every patient and takes over a week to develop in our cGMP laboratory. Without cutting any corners, our team has tried to make the treatment as affordable as possible.
