A child’s immune system has the potential to cure his cancer.
Zoé4life has established a partnership with the CHUV in Lausanne and the Seattle Children’s Hospital in the United States, to introduce a new type of cancer immunotherapy in Switzerland.
Immunotherapy is an innovative field in the treatment of cancer. Through cellular engineering, this treatment allows the body’s immune system to cure itself without the difficult and often permanent side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
Most patients experience an improvement in their disease within a few weeks.
Not only do most immunotherapy patients see their cancer go into remission quickly, but the side effects of treatment are less harmful than aggressive chemotherapy or radiation.
Finally, more effective and gentler cancer treatment is within our reach. And we are already seeing results: a recent Seattle clinical trial of pediatric leukemia resulted in a 93% complete remission rate in children with relapsing leukemia.
