NWBT is developing DCVax®  immune therapies for personalized treatment of a wide range of cancers.  DCVax®  is a platform technology which uses a patient's own dendritic cells (the master cells of the immune system), and biomarkers of the patient's specific type of cancer.  In essence, the dendritic cells are activated and "educated" to recognize that patient's cancer and mobilize the patient's immune system to attack it.  As such, DCVax®  is a non-toxic, broad platform technology which is expected to be applicable to most cancers.
