Cuba offers the possibility to people from all over the world to access a complete therapeutic program for patients with different head and neck tumors
This therapy with the use of monoclonal antibodies, combines medical science and technology, and is also supported by the contribution of other important institutions, such as the Center for Molecular Immunology (CIM), where several therapeutic vaccines have been developed with proven efficiency in certain types of tumors.
Nimotuzumab, is a humanized monoclonal antibody for the treatment of cancer. It was developed at the Center for Molecular Immunology in Havana, Cuba. Nimotuzumab binds with the affinity of the intermediate and the high specificity with the extracellular region of EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor). This produces a competition between the ligand and the activation of the receptor. The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is an important target in the development of cancer therapies. Combining Nimotuzumab with conventional treatments such as radiation therapy and chemotherapy has been shown to improve objective response. HR3 is obtained by genetic engineering and acts on your immune system, activating it and this in turn controls the growth of tumor cells because it competes with the proliferation factors with its receptor in the tumor cell, slowing down the growth rate of the tumor. .
