She Overcome Cancer With Immunotherapy

Funda Çakıcı, 54 years old living in Istanbul, was diagnosed with colon cancer 2 years ago. She had an operation, had chemotherapy for 6 months. She was delighted that I got rid of the whole disease, and this time she learned that cancer was splashing into her liver. Funda Çakıcı, who researched different treatments, has learned immunotherapy method. Immunotherapy treatment was applied to her by Prof. Dr. Nuri Faruk Aykan, Head of the Department of Medical Oncology in İstinye University Hospital Liv Hospital Bahçeşehir. 13 months have passed since the treatment and Çakıcı continues her life as an individual without cancer today.

Prof. Dr. Nuri Faruk Aykan gave information about immunotherapy. “Immunotherapy stops the growth of cancer cells and prevents them from spreading to other parts of the body. Not all patients are eligible for immunotherapy. For this reason, we first looked at some tests in the pathology report to see whether our patient was susceptible or not and that she was appropriate. The rate of emergence of immunotherapy is 10%. She was lucky. Cancer cells put pressure on the immune system. Cancer cells build walls of T lymphocytes that attack them. Here we blew this wall with the treatment we applied.”
