Immune Force One
We need YOU to help us conquer cancer.
IMMUNE FORCE ONE (IFO)
Your immune system can cure cancer!
T cells, which circulate in the blood, are powerful weapons that can eliminate infections and kill cancer cells. This “Force” has been extremely effective in treating and curing a subset of patients with cancer. Immunotherapy can provide immediate relief of cancer symptoms within the first dose. Unfortunately, this benefit is not always sustained, and may be associated with immune-related side effects. In other patients, immunotherapy has no effect on their cancer growth.
We are teaming up with a group of researchers and clinicians across the province to better understand how to harness the power of the immune system to fight cancer and minimize its side effects.
Storing a vial of blood from one cancer patient treated with immunotherapy costs $100.
Lets try to get as many samples as possible in order to figure out how to “train” T cells to eradicate cancer once and for all.
