How does Lung Cancer manifest?

Lung cancer is one of the most common tumors in the world. It is the leading cause of cancer death among men and women. Smoking causes most lung cancers.

There are many types of lung cancer . Each of them grows and spreads in a different way. Treatment also depends on the stage or how advanced it is.

Common symptoms of lung cancer include:

Therapeutic vaccines against Lung Cancer in Cuba

lung cancer vaccine

Treatment for lung cancer in Cuba with therapeutic vaccines, CIMAvax-EGFhr and Vaxira are indicated for patients who have already undergone chemotherapy or radiotherapy and are considered terminal without therapeutic alternative, controlling tumor growth without associated toxicity and increasing the expectation and quality of life of patients.

CIMAvax-EGFhr and Vaxira are a product of the Center for Molecular Immunology (CIM) in Havana and took 25 years of research to be developed.

Treatment with these therapeutic vaccines can contribute to significantly prolonging the life span of patients and improving their quality of life, bringing the fatal course of this disease closer to the course of chronic non-communicable diseases.

It is important to note that the drug does not prevent disease like a traditional vaccine.

The action of these lung cancer vaccines does not allow lung tumors to continue to develop, acting more like a treatment. Known as a therapeutic vaccine, rather than targeting cancer cells directly, the vaccine acts as a form of immunotherapy, harnessing the body's own immune system to fight cancer.

The vaccines CIMAvax-EGFhr and Vaxira , are given intramuscularly to the arms and buttocks, initially in four 14-day cycles. The cycles are then opened to once every 28 days.

Very little adverse reaction has been seen, perhaps tremors for about five minutes. We recommend that the patient not touch the area, massage, or scratch.

The lung cancer vaccine is applied in the La Pradera International Health Center .

This therapy is indicated in those patients with non-small cell lung tumors, in advanced stages, who have completed the first line of oncospecific therapy, at least 4 weeks before.

The results that have been obtained since 2011 with these vaccines are so encouraging that the Roswell Park Cancer Institute in New York joined the project and collaborates with the development and research of these Cuban vaccines.
