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 was treated of breast cancer

Because I know how difficult it is to make choices and remove unnecessary emotions, especially when it comes to health, especially when it's not just about yours. In April I chose where to make a PET CT analysis for my mother, who had completed 25 chemistries, and at the same time wanted to choose a place where she would check herself. Closer to 30, you understand that "less you know - better sleep" does not always work in the field of your own health or your loved ones. I knew about Bukimed from my comrades, this time I tried on myself. I will thank you for your patience and steadfastness in the list of questions that I asked our coordinator - Konstantin. You understand that at some moments you're meticulous, but it's all important for a comfortable passage not the most enjoyable journey. We went through all the procedures in the clinic of Anadol, near Istanbul. Meet, transfer to the hotel, and from there to the hospital - for free and almost as clearly as possible in Turkey. The reasons for choosing this place: quick access from Kharkov, more affordable price in comparison with Europe, the opportunity to undergo examinations for mom, and me. Of the pros, for a reasonable price (check up cost ~ 600 ye), you went through most important doctors in 1.5 days, passed a number of important tests and the next day received information from the therapist about what and how. I hope for the professionalism and quality of the equipment, so that the data are 100% correct. Of the big drawbacks: everything is not on schedule, the host party is trying to catch the maximum flow of "tourists", so get ready to wait 2-3 hours from the appointed time. NOT all doctors - luminaries and "picking" deep into the question, so, unfortunately, were and are everywhere. Therefore, if you eat with an important and extremely decisive question, try to check that all your questions and documents are studied and passed on to specialists. We had a failure with this. In general, this experience is less stressful than the Ukrainian version, the feeling that you are going for the features of your side, a pleasant climate - allows you to relax a little and add a good mood for important things!

The patient was treated of prostate cancer

My dad, radiation therapy, 40 sessions, about 2 months of stay in Istanbul were treated in the clinic. It's still early to speak about the results, therefore the review is exclusively about the process (!) For now. The choice helped to make bookimed, and I highly recommend using this excellent service. As a user, I would like to name the most basic plus. First and foremost, it is time saving, and in some cases it is equivalent to the preservation of health and life. And what is important, without costs for the patient, there is simply no payment for the company's service. Moreover, service coordinators are a huge resource for patients. We had Konstantin, and we are very grateful for the help and the choice of the best medical solution (at the price / quality / reputation of the doctor / clinic) and great help in solving logistical issues. When we have to deal with "medical tourism", there are no tourism patients for the patients there: (In addition to the medical problem, there are many practical, financial, coordination issues. It is important to have support on the side of the patient, we are very grateful. Now about the clinic: in general, the clinic liked, very modern and good equipment (so it was chosen), a good price-quality ratio. . From the pros: the doctor radiologist and the staff of the radiological department were attentive and in matters of medicine, and just a relationship. 40 sessions are 40 visits to the clinic, it is difficult, both physically and morally. The benevolent staff really helped make this experience less painful in all respects. I will not write much about the interior of the clinic, but for whom the aesthetics are important, yes, everything is excellent, modern, clean, often more like a hotel. As elsewhere, there is a large team of translators. To communicate with doctors used English directly, there certainly are many advantages. But all 40 sessions and not only were always assisted by translators in communicating with junior honey. personnel, coordination issues, medical records to the doctor, analyzes, transfers, etc. From the minuses: The clinic is in a very expensive and difficult physically accessible area (on a hill). Despite the fact that we lived side by side (significantly overpaying compared to other areas of Istanbul), we had to use motor transport every day. For a short stay, this is not a problem, but when a longer period is still an inconvenience. Some translators of the clinic introduced the category of "minuses" of the clinic. People are different, qualification, too, but it was still in a significant minority (our main interpreter was both professional and human). Again in the minority (!), But for the objectivity to mention, some doctors offered super expensive tests in very standard situations. For example, oh, well, if you want, in addition to the X-ray, we can do another CT scan (when coughing), which besides doubtful honey. values ​​(not to mention money) was recently and so done. Again, our main doctor is very intelligible and enthusiastically explained the essence of the treatment, the expected effect, side effects, prescribed drugs on time to eliminate them, which of course, most important! As a conclusion, the minuses will always and everywhere, but in general, from our experience, we are satisfied with the process of treatment in the LIV hospital. Thank you hospital and bukimed team.

The patient was treated of epilepsy

I am 63 years old, at home, in Kazakhstan I was diagnosed with "epilepsy". Every 20 days I had seizures. We do not have an epileptologist at home. Then, with the help of Bookimed, thanks to Alina Honest, who advised Dr. Antonio Russi and the clinic Tecnon. All the time she accompanied us with consultations, contacted the clinic in Spain, in particular with Dr. Antonio Russi. I was in the clinic of Technon (Spain) in October 2017, Dr. Antonio Russi only flew from the conference, and immediately, almost from the plane, visited us. We talked about everything and agreed to start the diagnosis in the morning. In the morning he explained the whole procedure. We have undergone MRI, EEG, PET, PET (FDG), etc. Always answered all the questions posed clearly and grammatically. During the PEP we were picked up by pills, we tried 9 different drugs, of which 2 came up to us. Now I take these pills at home. In general, while in the clinic, everything was at the highest level: service, and so on. Even after diagnosis he contacts me via Skype, asks questions, gives advice, answers questions. I express huge gratitude to Doctor Antonio Russi, he is a doctor from God, a real professional! Coryphaeus of his work! Health to him and his family, happiness, success. With the help of his technique and selection of the right drugs, there are practically no seizures. I advise everyone to contact him.

Teknon Centre is one of the best when we think about medical equipment, service, doctors and the atmosphere there. Cleanliness deserves for 5 stars. Dr. Antonio Russi and his team very involved with the study and very helpful when something happens. The nurses were treating my son as their own and thanks to them my son was not feeling as being during the hospitalization. Everybody, there was taking care of my son with great care, patience, and enormous kindness. And finally....what's the most important in this "diamond frame" - the diagnostic of my son is the best. My son's diagnosis is very clear. My son has been examined so thoroughly that the clinics in Germany (where my son is being treated) could not make such a clear diagnosis. It is thanks to the world's best medical equipment, in which the clinic is equipped and a well-trained team of doctors. Everything that has been included in this "diamond frame" deserves the highest rating of customer satisfaction. Nothing, absolutely nothing, does not remain here without a shadow of a doubt.

From the bottom of my heart I want to thank Professor Gross, as well as all the staff of the Asclepios clinic in Hamburg for their high professionalism, efficiency, sensitivity and attention to patients. About a month ago left an application on the site bookimed, within an hour I was contacted by coordinator Katerina, immediately offered several clinics specializing in oncourology. The choice fell on Asclepios in Hamburg, in particular, Professor Gross. Within a week, thanks to Katerina's efforts, prof. Gross, determined the tactics of treatment and already in a week there was immediate operation. There were some doubts that the nephrectomy could be performed laparoscopically, but the golden hands of prof. Gross know their business. The postoperative period went smoothly, recovered quickly. During the week of the stay, there were no complaints about the work of the staff: attentive, sensitive and affable. Conditions are more than comfortable. The language barrier was not a problem due to the well-coordinated work of the translators Lydia Goncharenko and Vladimir Fissenko. Separately, I want to once again express my gratitude to coordinator Katerina, who was always in touch, quickly resolved all sorts of difficulties.

The patient was treated of stomach cancer

All very well Responsive and professional doctors, especially doctor, professor Kraus. Operation was successfully completed. It took 4 months and I recently went to the control in this clinic. I did not like the food immediately after the operation. I could not do anything because of stomach resection, and they bring me sandwiches with sausage, cheese and all that is absolutely not suitable for me. There you can make an order, but they change it in their own way. They have no cooking block of their own, they are served by some kind of food factory, delivered to the clinic in large containers. I recommend this clinic for treatment, do not regret it.

The patient was treated in this clinic

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 stomach cancer

Hello! My dad was diagnosed with a diagnosis in the clinic: adenomatic stomach carcinoma of the 3rd stage. Doctors, nurses and accompanying personnel are qualified professionals, very attentive! All procedures are made as necessary, and not for profit. The only thing that is embarrassing is the menu for people without a stomach. (They gave it hot and fried) Accompanying company takes you from the airport on the day of arrival to the airport on the day of departure. In general, from the time of the first call to today, everyone is happy! I advise everyone here to contact!

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

The patient was treated of herniated disk

We were treated at the Helios Berlin Buch clinic, a diagnosis of the intervertebral hernia, an operation was prescribed. The operation was conducted by Pr. J. Kiwit is a neurosurgeon, the head of the department of neurosurgery in this clinic. It was very exciting, but everything went fine, excellent service, conditions, and most importantly very professional treatment. The operation was done successfully. Many thanks to the company Bukimed, Katerina Potapova, for understanding, for patience. The question aroused the issue of the amount on the account, there was a fear that there would be more costs, but it turned out the opposite, even made a return of the balance to the account, and quite good. Nothing superfluous was not assigned to m not included in the bill. The clinic is very large, in a beautiful suburb of Berlin. An interpreter is necessary if there is no English knowledge, and if there is, then all doctors and assistants and interns speak good English, as well as medical staff. Thanks to Bukimed (Katerina Potapova) Anna, 05/11/2017

The patient underwent gastrointestinal examination

Services were provided only for 30% of the agreement. The refund was partially and only after proceedings. Without trial, the agency side of the incident was silent. The doctor did not look conscientiously and very short. He did not appoint any examinations. The only advice I received from Dr. Urbanek: "is that I can and do not eat what I can not, (given the fact that I have been sitting on a baby's diet for a year)," Excellent, advice! Thank you! For this it was worth to fly to the Czech Republic and pay money. I saw the disdainful attitude of the doctors and the enormous pressure from the administrative staff who served me. The trip was extremely dissatisfied and disappointed. I got the worst result that I could only imagine. As for the coordinator of Svetlana Kalishnichenko, she performs the work at the highest level. Very intelligent, professional person. It's very pleasant to work with her.

The patient was treated of uterine fibroids

Good morning! Since I was waiting for an operation for gynecology, I wanted to once again consult an independent opinion, so I turned to you. On arrival, I phoned with the medical consultant Lyudmila, met at the Motol clinic. Very quickly registered, along with the translator Ada passed to the doctor Roman Khmel. The doctor at first listened to me, then he examined the ultrasound. I was very surprised that my situation is not critical and the operation should not be rushed, but only observed. Thank you very much! Thanks to Lyudmila and Ada! Later I was sent to the post office for a check-up, on Monday I go to my doctor. It's such a joy, to avoid surgery! Thanks again!

The patient was treated of epilepsy

Ms. Liza Dudnik from bookimed reacted very fast and was very very involved from the beginning. She was in constant touch with us all the time, even during her holidays. Teknon Centre is one of the best when we think about medical equipment, service, doctors and the atmosphere there. Cleanliness deserves for 5 stars. Dr. Antonio Russi and his team very involved with the study and very helpful when something happens. The nurses were treating my son as their own and thanks to them my son was not feeling as being during the hospitalization. Everybody, there was taking care of my son with great care, patience, and enormous kindness. And finally....what's the most important in this "diamond frame" - the diagnostic of my son is the best. My son's diagnosis is very clear. My son has been examined so thoroughly that the clinics in Germany (where my son is being treated) could not make such a clear diagnosis. It is thanks to the world's best medical equipment, in which the clinic is equipped and a well-trained team of doctors. Everything that has been included in this "diamond frame" deserves the highest rating of customer satisfaction. Nothing, absolutely nothing, does not remain here without a shadow of a doubt.
