ON Thursday 10 September, the official launch of Bioensure - an immunotherapy cell banking service - took place in KwaZulu-Natal. The event was hosted by Setzkorn Health andamp; Wealth Consulting and held at Bellevue Café in Kloof.

Guests were introduced to the associated benefits of storing their healthy white blood cells for the treatment­ of cancer, should it occur later on in life by securing an immunotherapy treatment option. Dr Nicolene Shaw explained the process of extracting approximately 200mls of blood, separating the red and white blood cells, testing the level of potential cancer-fighting immune (white) cells, comprising predominantly of monocytes and T-Cells, and cryogenically storing it. Should you be diagnosed with cancer­ these disease-free white blood cells can be used to create a vaccine for the type of cancer you are fighting.

‘’Your body is equipped to destroy cancer cells, as it is does so on a daily basis,’’ says Shaw. “Stress, lifestyle and age does unfortunately­, affect the fighting capacity of our immune system which is why cancer is so prevalent. “If we can restore your body to its optimal state through immuno- therapy­, you will have an excellent chance of overcoming any form of cancer­.’’

To find out more about Biosure and banking your healthy immune cells cryogenically for life, contact Rem Setzkorn on 083 445 6921 or 031 764 1842.
