With the advancement of medicine in the current era, it has become easy to have children even with immune diseases. Bedaya Hospital introduces a new technology called lymphocyte immunotherapy, as this technology works to make the mother's body ready to receive the sperm and the new fetus without considering it an antibody that must be fought by the immune system. Bedaya Hospital is considered one of the first hospitals in Egypt and the Middle East to apply the latest therapeutic technologies related to reproductive health and infertility. It also offers magnetic-activated cell sorting beside lymphocyte immunotherapy which is supervised by the most skilled doctors and laboratory specialists, using the latest medical laboratory equipment.
lymphocyte Immunotherapy is used for women who suffer from autoimmune diseases in which the immune system randomly attacks the body's own cells. The task of the immune system is to attack foreign antibodies in the body and fight harmful viruses and bacteria, but in the case of immune disease, white blood cells and lymphocytes destroy and attack beneficial proteins and familiar body cells.
Women may face a reaction towards the sperm, so the body considers it as a foreign protein, so it destroys it, and fertilization of the egg does not occur, and this justifies repeated abortions and the failure of ICSI. In this case, lymphocyte immunotherapy is used to reduce the reaction of the woman's immune system toward the sperm and cells of the future fetus.
lymphocyte immunization therapy procedure is done by drawing a blood sample from the father and then sending it to the laboratory so that the laboratory specialists perform the blood filtration process in which the lymphocytes and white cells are separated from the rest of the cells and components of the blood. Lymphocytes taken from the man are placed in a solution to be given to the mother in a syringe under the skin.
lymphocyte immunotherapy is injected in four different spots in the mother’s body, or according to what the doctor decides. She receives three doses before the ICSI and two doses after so that the woman’s body can recognize the sperm cells and the implanted embryo and not attack it.
No report has been provided regarding lymphocyte immunization therapy side effects in patients who received treatment, but there is a rare possibility o to some side effects.
Some studies have shown that the lymphocyte immunization therapy success rate is 69%, but other studies have shown that success rates have risen to 80%. In any case, immunotherapy has proven its worth not only in the success of assisted fertilization and pregnancy but also in the treatment of some types of cancer.
lymphocyte immunotherapy pregnancy chance Increases greatly with immunotherapy, as the immune system can recognize the man's lymphocytes, so it does not attack the sperm. Immunotherapy should be considered if the mother has an immune deficiency and assisted fertilization procedures such as ICSI and IVF are not successful. A sick mother can become pregnant through ICSI, but with the growth of fetal cells, the immune system attacks it, so it does not grow and a miscarriage occurs.

43 years old Khaled and 37 years old Rohaifaa were married for 12 years, but they had delayed pregnancy health issues that prevented them from expanding their family. Rohaifaa’s period is quite regular but turned out to be diagnosed with polycystic ovaries and uterine adhesions. The Libyan couple tried ICSI back in 2010 and retried again in 2013, and this time led to a successful pregnancy. 10 eggs were taken from Rohaifaa ovum, 4 were implanted back into her uterus and 6 were frozen in case we had to redo the process again, or to be used for any future porpuses.
