Waking up the immune system

All cancer cells produce an enzyme called Nagalase.¬† This enzyme effectively “turns off” one of the major protective (from cancer) cells in the immune system called the Macrophage cells.¬†There is a blood test that can monitor the levels of this enzyme in the body. At Reno Integrative Medical Center it is used to evaluate cancer treatment progress.

A specific protein called “GcMAF” (Macrophage Activating Factor) can turn these cells back on and “de-cloak” the cancer cells so the immune system can complete its job of killing the abnormal cells creating a domino effect.
