Immune Fx (IFx) Personalized Cancer Vaccines
Our IFx technology is designed to make a tumor cell appear as a bacterium to the immune system, activating both an innate immune response, and subsequently, an adaptive immune response.
Innate immunity, also referred to as nonspecific immunity, is the body’s first line of defense against pathogens. It protects against all microbial pathogens by immediately preventing the spread and movement of foreign pathogens throughout the body. The innate immune system is more ancient than the adaptive immune response, and it has developed and evolved to protect the host from the surrounding environment, in which a variety of toxins and infectious agents including bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites are found.

The adaptive immune system is triggered in response to the body’s exposure to a foreign substance and is composed of specialized immune cells and antibodies that attack and destroy pathogens or prevent their growth. The adaptive response also triggers the development of antigen-specific memory T-Cells that contribute to the prevention of recurrence of sickness to a particular pathogen.
