Cancer treatment using cell therapy

In 1986 in the USSR happened an accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, which resulted in radiation poisoning within a radius of 30 km on the territory of Ukraine and Belarus. The accident was successfully liquidated, but after a few years in Ukraine appeared a surge of oncological diseases. Struggle with cancer in Ukraine was arranged at the state level. Scientists and doctors have collectively developed the most innovative preparations and treatment methods of oncological diseases. One of the pioneers in the fight against cancer was the founder of the UCT Clinic Professor Alexander Smikodub. Methods of stem cell treatment of cancer developed by him are the most effective and successfully applied in Ukraine and other countries.

Oncological diseases include all types of malignant tumors. Every year in the world is registered about 6 million new cases of cancer and even in economically prosperous countries the incidence of malignant tumors is constantly growing. According to the World Health Organization, already in the near future mortality from cancer pathology will come out on top, being "ahead of" cardiovascular diseases. Cancer is characterized by the formation and growth of abnormal cells inside the body.

General characteristics of malignant tumors are: tissue atypism (loss of ability to "properly" differentiate into necessary for a certain organ cell type), uncontrolled aggressive growth with the lesion of the organ and adhere tissues, as well as the ability to metastasize (spreading of cancer cells through the bloodstream or lymph throughout the body with the formation of new foci of tumor growth). Most cancer tumors occur people older than 50 years, which is partly explained by the aging processes in the body. For man most often affected with cancer organs are prostate and lungs, for women - mammary gland. Any oncological disease leads to an incorrect or incomplete functioning of the affected by tumor and metastases internal organs, tissues and systems, and also can cause many complications such as anemia, exhaustion, loss of appetite, frequent nausea and vomiting, constant fatigue, durable fever, lymphadenopathy.

Diagnostics and treatment methods of cancer

It is important to undergo regular medical check-ups, because early diagnostics of cancer and modern healing methods allow to completely cure many tumors detected at early stages, thus prolonging human life for many years.

Treatment methods of oncological diseases are varied, the main among them are surgical, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and biotherapy. These methods may be used separately as well as in different combinations and in different sequences. The effectiveness of treatment depends on the histological structure of tumor (type and grade of malignancy), localization, stage of development and overall condition of the patient. Treatment is considered as radical when the tumor was removed surgically in its entirety or was completely resorbed after radiation or chemotherapy. Fact of stabile cure is set after 5-year follow-up of the patient without the appearance of recurrence or metastasis. If the performed healing did not reach such a result or gave only a temporary effect - such treatment is named palliative. Healing of certain clinical manifestations, but not the tumor itself, is named symptomatic.

Surgical treatment in oncology supposes the so-called principle of ablastics – excision of the tumor in its entirety with simultaneous removal of regional lymph nodes and lymph sinuses. In many cancer localizations, surgery is combined with chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Radiation therapy is used limited, due to different sensitivities to radiation exposure of tumors in different locations. For today, the radiation impact on cancer carried out by remote or intracavitary X-rays and gamma rays of radioactive elements.

Biotherapy means the use of various biological agents - interferons, vaccines, activated lymphocytes and other immunomodulatory preparations.

Chemotherapy is now becoming the most important method of treatment, which is used to reduce the tumor mass, regress or prevent the development of metastases. It is used as a radical (separately and in combination - before or after the surgery) and as a palliative (for nonresectable tumors) treatment. It supposes the development of a number of side effects: nausea, vomiting, allergic reactions, diarrhea, anemia, leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, stomatitis. Long-term chemotherapy has varying severity degree of nephro-, cardio-, neuro-  and ototoxicity. Development of these complications, in turn, restricts further specific antitumor treatment.

UCTC has a positive experience in treating all forms of cancer pathology at all stages of the disease, using in conjunction with the accompanying traditional antitumor methods preparations based on fetal stem cells. Application of stem cells enables oncologists to carry out radiotherapy and chemotherapy in relatively high doses to achieve maximum elimination of tumor cells, also allows the patient to restore own immunity rapidly.  Pharmacological agents used in chemotherapy have pronounced immunosuppressive effect (i.e. inhibit cell division), which affect not only cancer cells but also on immunocompetent cells, especially on lymphocytes. When the immune system is unable to cope with a protective function, the body becomes vulnerable to external influence of bacterial viruses, as well as increases risk of development of autoimmune and immunodeficiency conditions. The aim of our treatment at this stage is creation of the strong immune system of the patient capable in the future to "fight" with the underlying disease and negative external and internal risk factors. Fetal stem cells give rise to all myeloid (erythrocytes, neutrophils, platelets) and lymphoid blood cells (T-lymphocytes, B-lymphocytes), that is, have immunostimulating action - increase the number of immunocompetent cells, as well as increase their functional activity. Treatment with drugs on the basis of fetal stem cells is also effective when surgical removal of the tumor cannot be started due to complications such as anemia, fatigue, exhaustion, thrombocytopenia, and depression.

We have developed therapy methods that are successfully applied before the implementation of radical anti-tumor actions. It provides preparation of the body for a surgery, improving their tolerability. After surgical removal of the tumor accelerates the healing process of postoperative wound, minimizing the consequences and complications of anesthesia, reduces period of postoperative rehabilitation. All this makes it easier to continue the comprehensive therapy.

Transplantation of fetal stem cell performed during the course of chemotherapy or radiation therapy contributes to the rapid recovery of anti-tumor immunity, indicators of red and white blood, improvement of the general condition, decrease of fatigue, improved psycho-emotional state and quality of life of the patient, especially in case of complications such as leukopenia , agranulocytosis, thrombocytopenia, anemia, hepatitis, enteropathy, exhaustion, depression, alopecia.

After courses of chemotherapy our treatment with use of preparations based on fetal stem cells allows to restore normal hematopoiesis and to multiply increase unit doses of subsequent anticancer agents that gives a possibility to enhance the antitumor effect and to achieve high survival value, inhibiting tumor recurrence and metastasis.

Our long-term experience shows that the success of complex treatment depends on the correct selection and beginning of therapy in the early stages of the disease.

Doctors of the Unique Cell Treatment Clinic will do everything possible to defeat cancer and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
