Renal Cell Carcinoma

57 yr|Male|Kidney cancer with mets to lung, lymph node and bones. I was diagnosed with collecting duct carcinoma-second most common type of Kidney cancer in June 2013. Earlier in Feb 2013 I had undergone kidney transplant. PET scan revealed that disease had spread to multiple lymph nodes, lungs and bones. I was put on Chemotherapy- 4 doses of Temsirolimus (mTOR inhibitor) in June 2013, but it could not control the actively disease, PET scan post chemotherapy showed that there was an increase in size and number of Lesion. Being a Pediatric surgeon myself I was aware of the recent developments in Cancer Immunotherapy. I was also told by my oncologist that a recently concluded clinical trial in US showed promising results where Dendritic cell therapy was given adjuvantly with Sunitinib in treatment of Renal cell carcinoma and Dendritic cell therapy was available in India through APAC biotech. I received six doses of autologous Dendritic cell therapy along with Sunitinib in August 2013, post treatment follow up with PET scan showed significant reduction in the size of Lung nodule, there was also reduction in metabolic activity of bone lesion and there was no further progression of disease.

But in January 2011 my condition started getting deteriorated.

Prostate Cancer

men icon In Aug 2005 I was diagnosed with Ca Prostate, Adenocarcinoma. I was suffering with high blood pressure and was on anti- hypertensive medication. My PSA was 16.7 ng/ml in Aug 2005 and I underwent TURP in Aug 2005. HPE revealed Adenocarcinoma; Gleason score-9. Although my bone scan showed no evidences of metastases but my CT Scan showed TURP cavity in prostate with normal peri prostatic fat planes.

Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) received in Sept 2005 & continued for 5 weeks. Inj Zoladex started quarterly which continued till Jan 2009. I was also put on Tab Calutide 50 mg which stopped in April 2009. I was on regular follow up and my PSA was 5.71 ng /ml in 2005 and had gone up to 20.88ng/ml in 2011. My condition was very bad and continuously I was feeling weak & lethargic. I was unable to do even my normal walk.

In March 2011 my bone scan showed multiple skeletal metastases in calvariun , Rt shoulder joints, Sternum, Vertebra and multiple Ribs. Due to rising PSA level , Inj Zoladex 10.8 and tab started again in March 2011 and continued till June 2011.

I was also on Inj Taxotere (120 mg) (chemotherapy based) and I received 6 cycle of chemotherapy till July 2011. My PSA Level came down from 17.63 ng/ml to 11.03 ng/ml in July. Seeing this progress I was advised to complete 10 cycles of chemotherapy but later on my prostate didn't show any progress. Again I was restless and was hopeless.

Then I was advised for Immunotherapy and I came to Apac Biotech for Dendritic Cell Therapy. After taking 6 doses of Inj Apceden , my PSA level had gone from 8.52 ng/ml (Jan 2012 ) to 2.2ng/ml. Now I have regained my strength & vitality again and I am feeling happy. Now I can do my day -today activities like walk and other things with the same vigor as I used to do it seven years before. Now I am feeling confident and energetic. I am happy that I took the chance of going for immunotherapy which gave me a new lease of life.

When all the conventional methods failed immunotherapy changed my life.
