TIL Therapy

Explore advanced cancer treatment approach with TIL therapy.

Why going to China for cancer treatment?

TIL therapy, or Tumor-Infiltrating Lymphocyte therapy, is a type of immunotherapy used in the treatment of cancer. In TIL therapy, immune cells called lymphocytes are extracted from a patient’s tumor tissue, where they have naturally infiltrated to attack the cancer. These lymphocytes are then grown in the laboratory, expanded in number, and reinfused into the patient’s body in a process similar to a blood transfusion.

The goal of TIL therapy is to boost the body’s natural immune response against the cancer. By isolating and amplifying the patient’s own tumor-fighting immune cells, TIL therapy aims to enhance the body’s ability to recognize and destroy cancer cells throughout the body.

TIL therapy has shown promise in treating certain types of cancer, particularly melanoma and other solid tumors. However, like many cancer treatments, its effectiveness can vary depending on factors such as the type and stage of cancer, as well as individual patient characteristics. Research in this field is ongoing, with scientists continually refining and improving TIL therapy techniques to enhance its efficacy and broaden its applicability to a wider range of cancers.
