The Institute has developed a biomedical cell product (BCP) based on monocyte-derived dendritic cells and methods of cellular immunotherapy of oncological diseases and the prevention of relapses in patients with oncological diseases using the developed BCP. The Institute offers services for the treatment of diseases using the developed BCP under an outsourcing agreement.
Human dendritic cells (DCs) are specialized and most potent antigen-presenting cells that play a critical role in the regulation of innate and acquired immune responses.

A biomedical cell product based on monocyte-derived dendritic cells for the treatment of cancer contains mature dendritic cells loaded with the antigen of the corresponding tumor. The main task of DCs is to activate immunity against the patient's tumor.

The biomaterial for the production of BCP is the patient's peripheral blood. Individual tumor antigens (the so-called tumor lysates) and (or) synthetic standardized tumor-associated antigens are used as antigenic material.

The critical advantage of BCP is the ability to induce an immune response to weak tumor antigens that were not previously recognized by the patient's immune system.

The clinical effect of one course of immunotherapy is manifested by the stabilization of the tumor process (in 40-50% of cases), sometimes with partial or complete regression (5-15%). Such an effect can last on average from 3 months to a year. The maximum clinical impact of such treatment can be expected if it is continuously carried out in an adjuvant mode after removal of the primary focus (after surgery) to prevent tumor recurrence and destroy invisible micrometastases.

The Institute offers clients services for the treatment of diseases using the developed BCP based on monocytic dendritic cells under an outsourcing agreement.
Advantages and Innovations
The use of BCP based on dendritic cells in cellular immunotherapy of oncological diseases increases the effectiveness of existing methods of treatment and medical prevention of disease recurrence, increases the duration of event-free survival and life of patients, reduces the cost of treating patients, reduces hospitalization times, and reduces losses from underutilization of labor resources.
