2011 Nobel Prize in Medicine, dendritic cells and their immune role
Biomedicine is a fascinating field that utilizes biological principles for the treatment of diseases and is based on the understanding of the underlying biology of a disease.
Biomedical research has led to significant advancements in the understanding of the human body and new approaches for a wide range of diseases.
At Inmunocell, as a specialized healthcare clinic, we are at the forefront of research in advanced medicine and biotechnological developments in order to provide our patients with the best treatment options available.
Immunotherapy is a cancer treatment that harnesses the body's own immune system to fight cancer cells. It focuses on stimulating, directing, or reprogramming the immune system to target cancer cells.
Stem cell therapy is part of the field of regenerative medicine. Stem cells have the ability to transform into different types of cells in the body and can help repair or replace damaged or diseased cells.
Adoptive Immunotherapy is a personalized biological therapy that enhances the patient's immune system and is developed from the tumor antigens identified in the original tumor biopsy.
These antigens are molecularly processed in the laboratory, enhancing their recognition by dendritic cells, to trigger a specific immune response in the body.
The scientist and immunologist Dr. Ralph Steinman was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2011 for his research on the mechanisms that make this therapy possible.
Some types of immunotherapies, particularly those of pharmacological origin, are limited only to patients with tumors that exhibit very specific markers and conditions.
Adoptive Immunotherapy, or Biological Immunotherapy, presents itself as an invaluable therapeutic opportunity for a wide range of tumor conditions, including some that would otherwise not have access to this type of advancement.
While each patient should be evaluated individually beforehand, the main types of tumor conditions that can be treated with Adoptive Immunotherapy include the following:
- Colon cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Stomach cancer
- Lung cancer
- Breast cancer
- Nasopharyngeal cancer
- Multiple myeloma
- Thyroid cancer
- Tongue cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Leukemia (specific cases)
- Others (Please inquire for specific cases)
The significant breakthrough that it represents
MAIN ADVANTAGES OF ADOPTIVE IMMUNOTHERAPY
One of the major advantages of these procedures is that the hard work is carried out in the laboratory, rather than directly in the patient's body.
No side effects
As it is a personalized biological therapy tailored to the patient's immune system, there are no associated side effects.
Adoptive immunotherapy provides a unique advantage in that it offers the opportunity to create an immune response that remains in the patient in the long term (immunological memory).
Applicable at all stages
Adoptive immunotherapy is one of the few therapies that can be applied in virtually all stages of the disease, including metastatic dissemination.
At Inmunocell, we specialize in Mesenchymal Stem Cell (MSC) Transplantation, a promising alternative in the treatment of various chronic and degenerative diseases.
Stem cells are given this name because of their ability to differentiate into various cell types, which gives them the potential to regenerate affected organs or tissues.
Viability by type of condition
What types of diseases can be treated with stem cell therapy?
Therapies based on Mesenchymal Stem Cell (MSC) Transplantation provide an opportunity to treat a wide variety of medical conditions, including those of autoimmune, neurological, inflammatory, orthopedic, or traumatic nature.
At Inmunocell, we have protocols for the treatment of diseases such as:
Chronic autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks healthy tissues, which can affect various organs and systems of the body.
Chronic inflammatory disease of the gastrointestinal tract that can affect any part of the digestive system, causing a wide range of symptoms.
Myocardial Infarction, commonly known as a heart attack, is a serious condition that occurs when blood flow to the heart is suddenly interrupted, which can result in damage to the heart muscle.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic autoimmune disease of the central nervous system that affects the myelin, the protective covering of nerve fibers.
A condition characterized by hair loss in one or more areas of the scalp. Alopecia can have a significant impact on the self-esteem and confidence of the affected person.
Inflammatory bowel disease that affects the lining of the colon and rectum. It is characterized by the presence of ulcers and erosions in the mucosa of the large intestine, leading to symptoms such as bloody diarrhea, abdominal pain, weight loss, fever, and fatigue.
It is estimated to affect between 10% and 52% of men worldwide, depending on age and other risk factors.
Chronic disease characterized by elevated blood glucose levels due to either insufficient production of insulin by the pancreas or the body's inability to effectively use the insulin produced. There are two main types of diabetes.
Arthritis is a general term that refers to the inflammation of one or more joints in the body.
It can affect people of all ages, although it is more common in individuals over the age of 65. There are many different types of arthritis, but the most common ones are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Neuropathy refers to a disease or damage to the nerves that connect the brain and spinal cord to other parts of the body. This condition can affect sensory, motor, or autonomic nerves and can have various causes and symptoms.
Parkinson's disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disorder that primarily affects the central nervous system. It is characterized by the progressive degeneration of nerve cells in a region of the brain called the substantia nigra.
This degeneration leads to a decrease in the production of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that is important for the control of movement and muscle coordination.

Key benefits of regenerative medicine
The transplantation of Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) focuses on restoring or replacing damaged or diseased tissues and organs with the goal of restoring normal body function. Some of the key advantages of this type of regenerative medicine include:
One of the main advantages of these procedures is that the hard work is done in the laboratory rather than in the patient's body.
Regenerative medicine treatments are specifically designed for each patient, based on their unique characteristics.
Unlike many conventional treatments that only address symptoms, regenerative medicine aims to treat the underlying cause of the problem for a more comprehensive and long-lasting cure.
Avoids surgical procedures. Regenerative medicine treatments are less invasive, resulting in shorter recovery times
