Immunotherapy for prostate cancer

 

 

Immunotherapy of prostate cancer is a treatment with drugs that activate the human immune system to fight cancer cells of the prostate tumor.

 

The prostate is a small gland that is part of the male reproductive system. Prostate is located just below the human bladder, where it surrounds the upper part of the urethra. The main function of the prostate gland is to secrete fluid that nourishes and protects sperm.

 

Traditional treatments for early prostate cancer include surgery and radiotherapy. Hormone therapy can lower the level of male hormones (androgens), which lead to tumor growth, and is also used to treat prostate tumors in the early stages. For advanced prostate cancer, chemotherapy is also a treatment option.

 

Immunotherapy (or immuno-oncology) is another new area of ​​treatment for prostate cancer.

 

In 2010, the FDA approved a dendritic cell vaccine called Sipuleusel-T (Provenge) for the treatment of prostate cancer. Provenge treatment has been shown to increase the survival of many patients with prostate cancer.

 

Currently, new immunotherapeutic drugs are being tested in clinical studies of prostate cancer. Some of them show impressive results.

 

Immunotherapy drugs are also used in Israel in the preparation of a personalized treatment regimen for each patient.

 

Individual treatment can be prescribed based on the results of new molecular genetic tests, during which the genetic profile of the tumor is compiled.
