Immunometabolism Research
« on: November 17, 2019, 05:01:37 pm »
Over the past decade, “immunometabolism” has become one of the most exciting areas of scientific research. Immunometabolism is an emerging field that investigates the interaction between immunologic and metabolic processes. Interest in this field is gaining momentum due to the realization that metabolism plays a central role in immune responses in healthy individuals and lack of proper immune response in those with cancer. This important discovery has validated our decade-long approach that was designed to starve tumor cells and spur immune cells to attack the tumor.

Another exciting area of scientific research is immunosurveillance restoration. An effective immune system can identify and destroy nascent (emerging) cancer cells in a process called immunosurveillance, which functions as our primary defense against cancer. Advancing age is associated with a decline in adaptive and innate immunity, known as immunosenescence. Contributing factors include atrophy of the thymus gland and declining bone marrow activity, resulting in a reduction of cytotoxic T-cells (CTCs) and natural killer (NK) cells. This impairs immunosurveillance and leads to an accumulation of cancer cells, cancer stem cells, and senescent cancer cells. Using a combination of repurposed medicines, peptides (short-chain proteins), and plant-derived compounds, we have found it possible to reverse immunosenescence by regenerating functional thymus tissue and boosting the production of CTCs and boosting NK cell production in the bone marrow.
