Dendritic Cell Therapy

Dendritic cell therapy is based on the body's own so-called dendritic cells. It is our goal that through our gentle treatment a "revival" of the immune system of your pet is initiated. The treatment with dendritic cells can increase the life expectancy of your animal considerably.

In contrast to chemotherapy, the patient is not weakened. The immune system is strengthened and restored.

Dendritic cell therapy can be used in dogs, cats, and horses with tumours.

Innovative and gentle tumour treatment

The dendritic cell therapy is an innovative treatment concept that is individually adapted to the treatment of your animal. PetBioCell uses modern approaches from human medicine to offer your pet the best possible treatment for a tumour.

In contrast to chemotherapy, which uses very toxic substances, dendritic cell therapy poses no danger to you, your four-legged friend or your veterinarian. Dendritic cell therapy offers a very good treatment alternative, especially if you still have children living in your house or if you are pregnant.

Increase of quality of life for you and your animal

It is important for us that your darling does not suffer. We work to improve your pet's quality of life and increase its life expectancy. We want to achieve this through our gentle treatment. The side effects of our treatment method are very weak. A short time after the treatment has been carried out, an increased temperature and a slight fatigue can be expected. However, these side effects can be regarded as positive. They mean that the patient's immune system reacts to dendritic cell therapy.

In addition the quality of life for your animal should improve. You do not have to take long ways to a specialist. The therapy can be performed in the familiar environment of the resident veterinarian.

What are dendritic cells?

Dendritic cells have the task of recognizing tumour cells in the body and stimulating their destruction. However, since the tumour cells disrupt the function of the dendritic cells, they are no longer able to recognise the tumour cells and induce their destruction.

We can manufacture functional dendritic cells from special blood cells of your animal. These cells are then able to recognise the tumour cells and initiate their destruction. Thus, the immune system of the patient starts to defend itself against the tumor cells again.

The dendritic cells are used by your veterinarian in various tumour diseases.

On the one hand, dendritic cell therapy can help if the tumour could not be completely removed and there are still remaining tumour cells in the body of your animal. Here the dendritic cells can stimulate the destruction of the remaining cells in the patient.

On the other hand, dendritic cell therapy can help with malignant tumours that tend to recur (recurrence). The probability of this recurrence should be reduced.

Procedure of dendritic cell therapy at your vet

  • For dendritic cell therapy, your vet will take a blood sample from your patient.
  • PetBioCell then collects the blood sample from your vet using a refrigerated express delivery service and begins cultivating the dendritic cells. Our GMP certified clean room laboratory guarantees the high quality of the dendritic cell therapy you expect.
  • After cultivation, the dendritic cells are placed in an injection solution and returned to your veterinarian by a refrigerated express delivery service.
  • Your vet will then apply the cells. The cells are applied intradermally into the skin. This is usually very straightforward.
  • The process from blood collection to application takes nine days and is performed three times in total, every four weeks.
