NK cells (Natural Killer Cells) are the most important subpopulation of lymphocytes from white blood cells and are responsible for the defense from invaders such as bacteria, viruses, and cancer cells. The number of NK cells is specific in each individual with limits, which allow the organism to react naturally in case of attack from external factors.
However, the levels of NK cells in reproductive medicine are not the same for example in a person that suffers from cancer or from an autoimmune disease. In Addition, the NK diagnostic panel doesn’t include ONLY the number of NK cells in peripheral blood, but the endometrial NK cells and their functionality or activity. In other words, there are 3 biomarkers of NK cells in reproductive medicine, which play a vital role in infertility, Rapid spontaneous abortions, and failed IVFs. Anyone from these NK biomarkers which is within the range levels, is capable of blocking the implantation of the embryo and therefore to stop pregnancy.
The therapy with intralipid 20% is administered intravenously in specific dosage depending on the diagnostic results in 30 minutes WITHOUT ANY SIDE EFFECTS (except allergies to soybean) and its readministration is performed from 6 to 8 weeks. However, any mistake with the dosage, with the time of dosage and administration can lead to wrong results and instead of balancing the NK cells, it can increase their levels and activity and the reproductive problem to remain unsolved, and the couples to spend money for nothing. Only, expert scientific team can lead the couples to specific diagnostic and therapeutic approach for NK cells.
NOTE: Intralipids (iv. Fat emulsion) should be administered ONLY by expert doctors
