What is Keytruda?

New medicine Pembrolizumab (trade name Keytruda) is a humanized antibody derived from non-human species (in this case from a mouse) used in cancer immunotherapy.

The drug was initially used to treat metastatic melanoma — a type of skin cancer. In May, 2017 FDA approved Keytruda for treatment of any unresectable or metastatic solid tumor with certain genetic qualities without regard to the tissue type or site of the tumor.

Pembrolizumab mechanism of action

Pembrolizumab belongs to the group of the immunotherapy drugs — type of medicine that can treat certain cancers by influencing on patient's immune system. It blocks a protective mechanism of cancer cells and allows the immune system to destroy them. Drug targets and blocks the cellular pathway of specific protein (programmed cell death protein P1) activating the immune system to attack cancer cells.

Pembrolizumab FDA approval

On May 23, 2017 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted for Pembrolizumab (Keytruda) an accelerated approval — faster approval of drugs for serious conditions that fill an unmet medical need. FDA allowed to prescribe immunotherapy new drug to treat patients whose cancers have a specific genetic feature (biomarker).

Pembrolizumab is indicated for the treatment of adult and pediatric patients with unresectable (unable to be removed with surgery) or metastatic solid tumors. If these tumors have a biomarker — microsatellite instability-high (MSI-H) or mismatch repair deficiency (dMMR) — forms of genetic instability.

Tumors with these biomarkers are most commonly found in colorectal, endometrial and gastrointestinal cancers, but also less commonly appear in cancers arising in the breast, prostate, bladder, thyroid gland and other organs.

For example, approximately 15 % of colorectal carcinomas with a tendency to arise in the proximal colon display high level of MSI-H.

The patient underwent dental implant

Hello. My name is Sergey Pletnev. On the recommendation of the employee Bukimed, Vadim Berezhny, I was sent for treatment to the dental department of the Liv Hospitals Clinic in Istanbul. During the treatment, I was given 12 implants in one session. During the session, I did not experience a single pain. Due to high-quality work of employees and professional skills, very high professional qualities of medical staff of the dental department, we achieved such results that in almost 5 days I was delivered 12 implants, temporary bridges. The final result will need to be talked much later - three months. But, nevertheless, now with confidence I can say that the collective of Liv Hospital, their professional qualities are at the highest level. Plus - magnificent, modern equipment and a wonderful attitude towards the patient. With pleasure in three months I will return to this clinic in order to establish finally the crowns on my implants.

Together with specialists, we decided to implant 12 implants. For the price I was very happy and got a wonderful result. I am very satisfied with the specialists and the hospital itself, because the approach was very professional at all stages. I am grateful to all specialists of the clinic! Special thanks to my curator - Elena Izmailova. Thank you I'm glad!

The patient was treated of hypertension

Hello! We were very pleased to cooperate with the "Bookimed" service and with our coordinator Lisa Dudnik. Starting from correspondence and ending with the trip, the organization of all documents and stay in the clinic - everything was on top. We turned to this service with the question of selecting a clinic that deals with patients with hypertension at a young age. In Ukraine, unfortunately, doctors did not want to understand, the tests were done incorrectly, there was even a situation when the doctor wrote a diagnosis that does not exist, it was very frustrating, and the health condition only worsened. Lisa found several clinics for us and sent our extracts and some tests there. As a result, it was decided that we will still go to the Asclepios clinic in Germany, since it has a nephrology department that specializes in hypertension at a young age, we also found many good reviews and information about doctors. Dr. Meyer, our attending physician, described to us in advance what tests and examinations should be done in Asklepios in order to understand what causes the increase in pressure. And also to us have sent approximately the sum which will be spent for these researches. As a result, we spent 5 days in Hamburg, we were given all the tests, examination and changed the drugs, since those that were prescribed in Ukraine, are banned in Germany and have long ceased to be produced. At the moment we are taking medication and contacting the coordinator with Dr. Mayer if there are any questions. I also liked the translator Vladimir, whom we also received the service. He accompanied us in Hamburg for all procedures and all consultations and even after our departure he decided some questions with our treating physician. Therefore, we can safely recommend this service to cooperation!

We operated on the Kindler Clinic St. Augustine, the children's hospital Asclepios. This is where patients come from all over Europe, very much from Japan, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates. We had many patients from Munich and Hanover, although these cities have their own cardiac centers. The prices are lower than in Berlin. Professionalism of the staff at the highest level. We are very grateful to this clinic, the doctors are super! If you are on a paid basis, the operation will necessarily be done by the chefs of the clinic, their two. The price of this does not change. Berlin gave us the price for the operation of the chief 40 000 euros, in St. Augustine 30 000 euros. At the same time, the most complex operations are also done by the chefs of the clinic, regardless of whether you are paying or not. We have the most positive reviews about the clinic !!!

We asked Bukimed to find us a clinic that could help us, then we sent all our data and they offered us Spain. They said that this is one of the best clinics in general.

I was operated by Professor Dr. Thomas Kraus, Head of Surgery at the Nord-West Clinic in Frankfurt. On March 13, I leave the hospital. On the recommendation of Tatyana, to whom you gave my contacts and some materials of my disease, I got acquainted with the site of Dr. Thomas Kraus, read about his great international authority, vast experience in cancer surgery and chose it. I am very pleased that I received from you the initial competent information about the issue of interest to me. You sent my contacts to Tatiana at the Nord-West clinic, where I also received answers to my questions. Everything was decided very quickly and, most importantly, my health problems were solved. Employees of the company Phoenix turned out to be professionals in their field and their help in organizing my trip is invaluable. Once again I express my gratitude to you! Sincerely, Svetlana Tskhai

The patient was treated of uterine fibroids

My uterine fibroids with indications for surgical intervention (removal) were diagnosed. In search of a clinic abroad, I remembered that I had heard about the Bookimed site and left my application there. The site itself contains an extensive database of clinics in different countries, describing their specialization, leading specialists and patient feedback. After I left the application on the site with me very quickly contacted by e-mail and offered to agree on a convenient time for a phone call to discuss all the details. Subsequently, we several times called up with the same specialist (Ivan Koval), who was engaged in me from the very beginning and until the selection of the clinic. From communication with Ivan, I had extremely positive impressions: the competent in the field of medicine, which we discussed, benevolent and polite, knows how to listen to the interlocutor, punctual, always in touch, is able to convincingly provide information, explains why one or another clinic is recommended. As a result, I was chosen clinic Nordwest in Frankfurt in Germany, where the highly skilled surgeon-gynecologist Professor Jorg Engel operates. After choosing a clinic, I was engaged in their office of medical tourism "Phoenix". I was given in advance full information about possible treatment options and operations, provisional cost, as well as information about the surgeon. After preliminary discussion, I came to the clinic for a full-time consultation with the professor. The company "Phoenix" provides full support to the patient, starting from a meeting at the airport; They are also present at all consultations as an interpreter from German. After the consultation, we appointed the date of the operation, to which I flew in about 1.5 months. "Phoenix" provided visa support, they provided all the necessary documents, a visa was received at the German consulate in Moscow in two days. The condition of the clinic is that a few days before the operation the patient should undergo premedication: to pass tests and smears on infections, to pass a health questionnaire, and also to have a conversation with an anesthesiologist and a specialist (in my case a gynecologist) about the forthcoming operation and possible risks. The operation was successful, the removal of the myomium was performed laparoscopically (although the professor had previously voiced the risk that it might be necessary to go on a cavity operation). Foreign patients are accommodated in VIP class rooms (single rooms, with panoramic views of Frankfurt, comparable in quality to rooms in a high class hotel). Very good aftercare, constant monitoring of doctors and nurses, all very professional, attentive and friendly. Three meals a day (choice from the menu) plus two snacks. I was discharged from the hospital on the fifth day after the operation. The state of health was good, absolutely normal for a return flight to Moscow on the same day. Definitely I can recommend the clinic Nordwest for gynecological treatment and operations.

The patient was treated of

The clinic NordWest has left wonderful impressions: experienced doctors with high qualifications. The equipment of the clinic, offices, hospital rooms is the most modern. I liked that all the specialists of the clinic and the international department are ready to help if there are any questions. Control of treatment occurs even when the patient is at home. All consultations are carried out online, promptly and in a comprehensive manner. 4 months have passed since my first meeting with the specialists of the Clinic. The treatment appointed by Professor Eger brought an excellent result: complete remission! Huge gratitude to all !!! It should be noted that relations between patients and employees of the international department are friendly. All sincerely relive, help with advice and deed, rejoice, are interested in current affairs ... Once again HUGE THANK YOU!

The patient was treated of viral hepatitis

After a blood transfusion in Kherson, I was diagnosed with hepatitis C. The examination showed a viral load of 88,000, a severity in the liver appeared. When the doctor in the infectious hospital explained to me the prospects - I was horrified. Effective antiviral drugs for hepatitis in Ukraine are not registered, and ordering in Europe is very long and expensive. A familiar doctor advised to be treated in India - these drugs cost several times cheaper, as well as a comprehensive examination. Appealed to the clinic Manipal - for everything paid less than 2000 dollars, bought there heptcinate (Indian version of sophosbuvira, which is not in Ukraine). The liver does not hurt anymore, I wait for the results of the tests.

The patient was treated of

I had a diagnosis Hemophthal urgently needed surgery Vitrektomiya.Tak as we do not do such an operation in the country I went to Bukamed for help. I quickly worked for me Bukimed, my coordinator was Ivan Koval. In a very short time I received all interesting information and the program of my treatment. I am very lucky with the coordinator, he is a professional, friendly, diligent and responsible doctor. I came to the Fortes Clinic in New Delhi, India. At the Fortes clinic I did not like right away.
Translators are not serious, the medical staff seemed to me not very responsible, the legislation was changed, the coordination in the clinic was simply terrible. After the examination, I was refused an operation on a tourist visa, I needed a medical visa and the visa needed was 15 days and large money as doctors said Fortes, I was very nervous, all this time my coordinator was on call, he called me every 10 minutes. asked how things were, how he felt, talked with the medical staff of the clinic, he also worried very much for everything. Ivan Koval same day found for me another clinic in Bangalore and Dr. Priyu who took me for a night from Delhi to Bangalore. If I had one reliable, diligent my Coordinator doctor, then there were two kindly sympathetic doctors Priya too very much done for me, he found for me their most good colleagues. For which he thank you so much !!! In Bangalore, I was warmly greeted by the staff of the Manipal hospital and taken to Manipal where good, responsive, lovely and wonderful medical personnel of the hospital were waiting for me. They very carefully examined me and my eye, they set the day for the operation. On the day of the operation, I had no doubt that my operation would pass perfectly differently, otherwise my surgical doctors were the most experienced, responsible, sensitive and highly qualified world-class doctors. very easily and successfully, I almost did not feel pain after the operation.
I was happy when the next day the operations cleaned the eye patch to me, my eyes began to see as before)) This was my second birth.
for joy, even tears of happiness slipped.
My doctors were Dr. Ajanta Chakravarty and Dr. Nitin S. Shetty.
I express my heartfelt gratitude to my beloved doctors and to all Manipal staff for the impeccable and noble work that is so important to people. I was very pleased to feel a great deal of attention from the staff and doctors, sympathy and ponemanie! Low bow to you for the great, competent forces in saving our lives!

I was already going to call you with words of great gratitude for the help rendered in our complicated business. Roma had already been operated on. He is as happy as ever. The hospital can not understand what he rejoices! The clinic is wonderful. You can recommend it with a calm heart. They do everything! All doctors with American and British diplomas. The format of the hospital is absolutely European. And the prices are funny! Single room costs $ 100. In Berlin we paid 2000 € per day. The pacemaker Metatronic USA costs $ 500. In Russia there are 160000₽. So the conclusions are self-evident. I'll recommend it to my friends! I want to wish you all the best and thank you again for your help !!

The patient was treated of lung cancer

Six months ago, my father was diagnosed with lung cancer. There was already stage 3, and our doctors said it was too late to do anything. But we decided that since we can not be cured here, this does not mean that we will not be helped abroad. Considered a lot of options, both Germany and Austria, but decided to go to Israel. Still, the medicine there is somewhat cheaper.
The father was treated in Assut. The clinic is very good, and the doctors in it are real professionals. Dad passed a course of chemotherapy with radiation, then an operation was performed. In general, the father feels well. We are very grateful to the doctors of the clinic.

The patient was treated of cervical cancer

I passed last year a planned medical examination. The doctors diagnosed me with cervical cancer. In Russia, such a diagnosis simply plunges into shock, as the level of medicine desires better, and cancer is generally a death sentence. My relatives supported me in a difficult moment.

Very soon I recovered from the shock, began to think-guess how to fight for a life for the sake of children, husband, myself. There was not much time, it was impossible to delay with such a diagnosis. On the advice of a friend, I chose the Assuta clinic in Israel. Why Assuta? I read a lot of positive responses about this hospital, the indicator of successfully conducted operations in the department of oncology was simply amazing. Of course, the level of Israeli doctors is much higher than ours.

Shortly after the application, the coordinator of the clinic contacted us, which also inspired confidence. He painted a program of treatment, introduced the case. When asked how much treatment will cost, the answer is tentative. They said that the doctor should specify the price, and payment is made after the fact. This was also a plus. Of course, there was some concern that we were going to a foreign country, we would feel "lost", but these fears were in vain.

It pleased us that at the stage of diagnosis we were informed that the situation was not so terrible. There was a hope for recovery. A few days later I was operated on.

I was at home in a couple of weeks completely healthy. There are not enough good words to express gratitude to the doctors of the Assuta clinic who cured me.

The hospital was good , and I liked the how you feel like there is always support when you need specially when you are travelling to aplace where you know no one . Diana was always in reach when I needed something during the prep phase , and Olena was very supportive during the stay . however I think that its better to arrange appointments with doctor at least 30 min meetings before travelling to have some arrangements done with the doctor before travelling . regards
