Melanoma and Skin Cancer Treatment in Israel

What is TIL Immunotherapy?

TIL is very effective in patients with metastatic melanoma that have had little or no benefit from conventional therapies. About half of these patients show improvement with TIL and approximately 25% of patients are cured of their melanoma.

TIL Immunotherapy uses your own cells. cancer-killing cells called tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes are removed from your tumor and isolated in a specialized laboratory. They are then grown to very large numbers and injected back into your body.

However, because TIL is very cutting edge, this therapy has very limited availability. There are only a handful of medical institutions in the world that offer TIL. One of those is at the forefront of TIL research and trials – Sheba Medical Center in Israel.
