Autologous Cytokine-Induced Cell Therapy (CIK)

Cytokine-induced killer (CIK) cells have, as a key feature, a double T-cell and NK cell-like phenotype

This unique combination of T-cell and NK-cell capabilities exerts a potent and widely MHC -unrestricted anti-tumour cytotoxicity against a broad range of cancer cells.

How does Cytokine-induced killer cells affect cancer cells?

  1. During this immunotherapy, the NK cells are stimulated in the laboratory with the biologically active molecules (cytokines) and such stimulation triggers multiplication and activation of NK cells. Cytokine induced killer (CIK) cells have, as a key feature, a double T-cell and NK (Natural killer) cell-like phenotype. This unique combination of T-cell and NK-cell capabilities exerts a potent and widely MHC-unrestricted anti-tumour cytotoxicity against a broad range of cancer cells. What this means is that unlike other immune cells (e.g. T-Lymphocyte) which can only kill infected and malignant cells that have ‘red flags’ (such as MHC and antibodies) on them. CIK has the ability to identify and kill infected and cancer cells with or without these ‘red flags’. This factor potentiates a quick and an unbiased response of the immune system.

  2. CIKs alone or in combination with other therapies (dendritic cells, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, therapy of biological targets, etc.), have proven to be safe and efficient in clinical practice.

  3. CIK cells displayed a high cytotoxic potential against a broad range of varying tumour entities. CIK cell treatment has been proven to completely remit tumour burden, prolong survival durations and improve quality of life even in advanced disease stages.

Before undergoing infusion therapy, it's important to ask your doctor or healthcare provider several questions to ensure that you are well-prepared and that the procedure goes smoothly.

Here are some questions you might consider asking:

  • What specific medication or solution will be used in the infusion?
  • How long will the infusion session take?
  • Are there any special instructions I need to follow before the infusion?
  • Should I eat or drink anything before the procedure?
  • What are the potential side effects or risks associated with this therapy?
  • Could you explain the process of the infusion to me?
  • How can I contact medical staff if I have questions or issues during or after the infusion?
  • Do I have any known medications or allergies that could affect this procedure?
  • Could this therapy interact with any other medications I'm currently taking?
  • What symptoms or side effects should I report after the infusion?
  • How often will I need to receive this therapy?
  • Are there any tests I need to have before or after the infusion?
  • What are the expected benefits of this infusion therapy?
  • Are there any dietary or activity restrictions I should follow before or after the infusion?
  • How will I know if the infusion therapy is working for me?
  • Is there any additional information or resources you can provide to help me understand this therapy better?

These questions can help you gain a clearer understanding of the infusion therapy, its purpose, and what to expect.


Open communication with your healthcare provider is key to ensuring that you have a safe and effective treatment experience.

Time: 45 minute session
Results: 1 days

During my battle with terminal liver cancer at Pallas Clinic, I made a conscious decision to enhance my immune response, with a significant emphasis on boosting glutathione levels. I spared no effort in augmenting glutathione, and the results were remarkably successful. Despite medical professionals deeming my cancer as "hopeless," it vanished within a short period, two years ago. My approach was entirely metabolic, relying on infusions and nutrients. I firmly believe that prioritizing the increase of glutathione played a pivotal role in overcoming one of the most formidable types of cancer. To this day, I continue to receive glutathione infusions weekly, along with various other supplements aimed at supporting and preserving glutathione levels. While my experience has led me to advocate for glutathione supplementation, I acknowledge that opinions on this matter vary among individuals.

Facing triple negative breast cancer was daunting, but discovering peptide vaccine therapy brought hope. Unlike traditional treatments, it boosts the immune system to target cancer cells directly. Despite challenges, each session empowered me, highlighting the strength within. While the road ahead remains uncertain, I'm grateful for innovative treatments and hopeful for the future.


I had surgery to remove my tumor, and after that, I had 12 glutathione drips because my G6pd was low from stress. My levels improved, so now I can get Vitamin C drips. I'm taking glutathione again for a heavy metal cleanse. I think it's helping me because my tumor hasn't grown for 11 months. I'll get new tests soon to check how I'm doing.
