Cell therapy is the source of your h(w)ealth
The vision for the future that led to the collaboration with Prof. dr. Dr Bart Neyns is based on three pillars:
1) Increasing the chances of survival with autologous immune cell therapy
The collection and cryopreservation (storage at -192 ° C) of specific cells (dendritic cells, T-cells, stem cells...) of a patient that was diagnosed with cancer and for whom there are sufficient arguments to store these cells in order to be administered as a blood cell product at a later stage;
2) Intelligent Cell Freezing
The joint initiation of an isolation procedure in which a maximum number of useful cell types are isolated from one blood sample, which are subsequently cryopreserved for later use in oncology. CryoStorage wishes to prepare for a future in which healthy people voluntarily can have their "useful" cells cryopreserved for later use in case of medical needs. CryoStorage would act as a commercial service entity within the applicable Belgian legislative framework;
3) An "off-the-shelf" cancer medicine
Conducting translational research into the treatment of cancer patients with a new ATMP (medicine) that Prof. dr. Dr Bart Neyns would like to use in combined therapies for the treatment of glioblastoma (brain cancer), melanoma (skin cancer) and possibly other types of tumours.
