Anyone who is healthy should consider banking their immune cells while they are still young & healthy. Because cancer is often affected by genetic predisposition, those with a family history of cancer will have a higher chance of cancer & should consider banking their immune cells before showing any signs.

MORE ABOUT IMMUNE CELL BANKING
Current Use of Immune Cells?
Currently, there are five FDA approved T-cell immunotherapy known as CAR T-cell therapy. As of 2021, there are also more than 1,000 ongoing clinical trials using CAR T-cell therapy to treat over 40 different solid & blood cancers and other diseases.
What other Diseases Can Be Treated?
Scientific medical literature supports the use of immune cell therapy for almost any type of cancer. It has also shown promising results for patients with Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, HIV and others.
HOW CAN HEALTHBANKS HELP?
Using approved, state-of-the-art technology, HealthBanks makes immune cell banking accessible and affordable. Our goal is to ensure as many Americans as possible can take advantage of this lifesaving procedure.
Our immune systems are programmed to protect us from new threats, but our ability to fight these infections declines rapidly as we grow older. By taking proactive steps now, individuals can use a process known as immune cell banking to store their own youthful cells for future usage to combat or reconstitute the body’s protection against disease.
What is Immune Cell Banking?
Immune cell banking is a process that allows proactive individuals to store their healthy immune cells in case they need them later in life or when their system is compromised. Immune cells are collected from the individual’s own body through a simple blood draw and stored for safekeeping with the goal of using them later in life when their immune system might be compromised.
How Does Immune Cell Banking Work?
The idea of immune cell banking is to isolate white blood cells, including T-cells and other immune cells, from peripheral blood. For the collected immunity cells to be useful for immunotherapy purposes, they need to be collected in a state of high purity, while individuals are healthy. Once isolated, the cells can be stored using cryopreservation.
How Long Can Cells Be Stored For?
Once collected, the cells for immune cell banking can last practically forever. Research shows that when cells are frozen at -196°C, they enter a state of metabolic inactivity for an indefinite period. The cells will then return to life once they are released from this state of cryogenic freezing.
What Are Immune Cells Used For?
The most common usage of immune cell banking is for cancer-related immunotherapy. The use of chemotherapy and radiation can result in the loss of a lifetime’s worth of immunity. The solution may be found with cryopreserving one’s immune cells to be available for future therapies or illnesses.
What Other Types of Disease Can Immune Cell Banking Treat?
Medical research has shown that your immune cells can be used as an effective therapy for several other types of diseases, such as Alzheimer’s.
Can Other Family Members or Relatives Use the Cells?
No, you cannot use the cells stored in immune cell banking from your body for other people, even if they are a family member. These cells are specific to an individual’s body, meaning they will not work for anyone else.
What Happens When the Cells Are Needed?
Doctors can request the immune system cells at any time to treat different illnesses. One of the immune cell banking units will be retrieved from storage, and arrangements will then made for them to be sent off to the treating therapist.
Who Should Consider Immune Cell Banking?
Research clearly shows that genetic predispositions often influence cancer. That means those with a family history of the disease should make sure they store their immune cells while they are healthy before any signs of the disease show up.
Is Immune Cell Banking Really Worth It?
Immune cell banking is an investment in your health that can be likened to taking out an insurance policy. The more you take proactive steps now, the better off you will be for when the need arises.
