THE ROLE OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
« on: February 16, 2020, 03:53:53 pm »

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 immunity, known as immunosenescence. Contributing factors include atrophy of the thymus gland and declining bone marrow activity, resulting in a reduction of functional cytotoxic T-cells (CTCs) and natural killer (NK) cells. Scientists found that a strong immune system, especially having ample and functional (immunocompetent) CTCs, may be the key to living a long and disease-free life (see https://www.pnas.org/content/pnas/early/2019/11/11/1907883116.full.pdf).

Integral to cancer prevention is a healthy (competent) immune system (see https://www.pnas.org/content/pnas/115/8/1883.full.pdf). Lack of CTC and NK cell activity impairs immunosurveillance and leads to an accumulation of cancer cells, cancer stem cells, and senescent cancer cells. Recent scientific studies have shown that by using repurposed medicines, peptides (short-chain proteins), and natural compounds, it may be possible to reverse immunosenescence by regenerating functional thymus tissue and boosting the production of CTCs and stimulating NK cell production in the bone marrow.
