Medical Evaluation

Patients admitted to the Cellular Immunotherapy Program are evaluated medically and biochemically, this done by an internist, with the aim of identifying and correcting the risk factors affecting the survival of patients, such as infectious processes and risk of thrombosis, all patients have a nutritional assessment conducted for patients with cancer.

This way patients are evaluated from a thorough point of view and not only from the cancer or tumor point of view.

  • Medical Record Review

  • Evaluation by Medical Director

  • Evaluation by Internal Medicine

  • Nutritional Evaluation


Another infectious process no less common in patients with cancer, are infections of the respiratory system , so a chest x-ray helps us in this diagnosis, patients are evaluated also with a CT scan , this study is at the discretion of the physician.

  • Torax  X- Ray

  • CT scan as indicated

  • Ultrasound if needed


During the evaluation an electrocardiographic evaluation is performed in order to detect any heart problems that may affect the patient’s life and may guide us towards its treatment and prevention.

Basic Test

A biochemical evaluation is done on patients.  This evaluation conducts  a number of basic studies to evaluate the metabolic function, hematological function and coagulation, as well as the measurement of parameters to evaluate the risk of thrombosis in patients

  • Red and White cell count

  • SMAC (Total Chemistry Test)

  • Urine Test

  • Coagulation times

  • Fibrinogen

  • Tumor Marker

  • D-Dimer

Directed Studies

  • Tumor Necrosis Factor: This cytokine has been linked to the progression of the disease, and the probability of the existence of metastases in cancer patients, their control is part of the treatment.

  • Counting of Circulating Tumor Cells (CTC): Circulating tumor cells is the test that evaluates the response to our treatment, and that leads us to an assessment of the severity of the disease, its control and reduction is one of our goals.

  • Regulatory T lymphocytes cells: Lymphocytes T are a type of regulatory lymphocytes that counteract or inactivate the “activation” of the immune system, there is a direct relationship between these cells and the progression of the disease, and that has been associated with failure in some programs of immunotherapy.

  • Glutathione: Is an essential antioxidant, plays an important role in controlling the population of leukocytes, their loss is related to the use of radiation, stress, aging, certain drugs and contamination affecting the immune cells, its balance is an important part of our program.

  • Sensitivity to alternative health products and complementary medicine: The customization of therapy is one of our goals, natural products have been shown to have beneficial effects in patients with cancer, but the abuse of them may affect the  liver detoxification system, plus it could have an “antagonistic” effect, that is, that some of the drugs can suppress the effect of others, neutralizing the effect of both drugs, canceling their effectiveness, what we strive for ,  is the combination of these products that demonstrate more effectiveness in the mortality malignant cells, and on the other hand those who prove to have greater impact on the population of white cells of the immune system.
