Is Dendritic Cell Therapy safe?

Why DCT is safe



Dendritic cell therapy is not a guaranteed cure for cancer, such a claim would be impossible and irresponsible, with any medical intervention there is some chance it will not work and statistically more so with cancer. A diagnosis of cancer is never a good thing and even today is the leading cause of premature death; in the long term cancer will probably kill a third of us.

There is a point at which the cancer has gone too far to treat, where the immune system is too broken to repair, where any intervention is likely to be too little too late. As a general rule, the most positive outcomes are where the patients start dendritic cell therapy at an early stage.

Reasons to choose Dendritic Cell Therapy

The adverse effects from chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery are renowned. The adverse effects associated with dendritic cell therapy are rare and where they occur are mostly mild and self-limited. Either using dendritic cell therapy on its own (which is mostly recommended) or in conjunction with other treatments and therapies, outcomes are always better with dendritic cell therapy. Some patients get completely cancer free; others see an important reduction of the tumor and others see that at least it stops growing and some quality of life can be restored.

Why Dendritic Cell Therapy is safe

Dendritic cell therapy is a viable and safe treatment for many types and stages of cancer, but like an elephant in the room, there is something that cannot be ignored; the small numbers of doubters and critics. Whilst the scientific community that have studied dendritic cell therapy are united in praise, there are the occasional badly thought out articles and comments from writers who have not fully studied it. They question the cost without knowing the overheads of a dedicated laboratory and a process carried out by highly qualified scientists and clinicians.

Some recommend that this process only be administered in the trials being carried out by health authorities across Europe, but these are rare and restricted by limits on health spending. One day the cost will fall. Perhaps the process could become simplified and more dedicated laboratories will become available. For now, the most commonly available source of dendritic cell therapy is in the private sector.

Where to find Scientific Proof

The doubters have not produced a peer-reviewed paper to say that dendritic cell therapy does not work, does harm or fails more than radiotherapies, drugs, or surgeries, but they will try to cast doubt. Science is advancing rapidly and new business applications of treatment and medicine create ‘waves’ in a well-established and competitive sector where ‘disruptive technology’ is not always welcome. It is not our intention to say whose interests the critics of dendritic cell therapy represent, we are concerned with the interests of the patients and advancing the fight against cancer. We urge any practitioners and oncologists who are asked for advice on dendritic cell therapy, to do the research, check the facts, read the peer-reviewed papers, the clinical trials and the lectures.


The facts are friendly, they speak for themselves and indicate significantly better outcomes than leaving it to the traditional solutions. Dendritic cell therapy is an obvious choice in the fight against cancer because, to quote Henry Ford; “if you always do what you always did you will always get what you always got”.

Dendritic cell therapy offers less risk and better chances than the most commonly used therapies and treatments. It is the safe, ethical, proven, established and successful way to treat cancer. It works from the inside out, rather than the outside in by using the natural repair system of the body with a method that was 150 years in the making and is now leading the fight against cancer. The science is well established; dendritic cell therapy puts the immune system back to work in fighting cancer cells without the need for operations, radio waves, side effects or drugs. The future is here.
