What are Lymphocyte Cells?
Lymphocytes are a type of white blood cell. They’re an important part of our immune system. About 20% to 40% of our white blood cells are lymphocytes.
Normal lymphocyte ranges depend on our age. For adults, normal lymphocyte count is between 1,000 and 4,800 lymphocytes per microliter of blood. For children, it’s between 3,000 and 9,500 lymphocytes per microliter of blood.
Lymphocytes are originated in your bone marrow. There are two types of lymphocytes:
B cells (B lymphocytes)
These make antibodies. Antibodies can destroy foreign substances or tag them for attack.
T cells (T lymphocytes)
These lymphocytes destroy any of your cells that have been taken over by viruses or cancers.
Lymphocytes Cells Therapy is a type of immunotherapy that makes your own immune system to attack cancer cells more effective.
For cancer patients undergoing conventional treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy, they may have side effects of fragile immune system. By transferring lymphocytes cells will help to provoke the body’s immune reaction.
What can Lymphocytes Cells help with?
- To balance the immune system.
- To act as the supporting treatment for radiation and chemotherapy treatment in increasing immune cells.
- To provide immunity for future invasions of bacteria, viruses, and parasites by producing antibodies, which have memory and will protect against such antigens.
- To control tumor outgrowth and the interaction of the host against viral/pathogen infections and neoplastic transformation.
