Question: Please Help: Dendritic Cell Vaccine

 borism - Wed Sep 01, 2004 10:29 am

I am looking for any information about dendritic cell vaccine. If anyone has any info of where or how to get it, please let me know at

We have heard that it is available in Germany. Does anyone know where? Which hospital or doctor?

Thank you and regards.

P. S. I'll be happy to compensate anyone who will supply me with the information.

User avatar It is my understanding that the dendritic cell vaccine is still only used in trial studies and is not yet being made available to the public. I know the University of Michigan is one place the trials are being conducted. Also Baylor University in Texas is beginning trials on it also for I believe, breast cancer and prostate cancer. You might ask there if they have the information you are seeking.
Thanks for using The Doctor's Lounge

p.s. any further information, if I had it, would be given FREELY :)

I'm a cancer survivor of 3 years and just found out about the dendritic vaccine. I also found two clinics in the USA that administer an alternative comprehensive treatment that includes dendritic (I believe they set you up for the actual injection of the vaccine in Mexico). I have my first appointment next week. In the meantime, check out their site at

Good Luck!
