LIT Therapy is currently unavailable within the United States. Most commonly, we work with doctors in Toronto, Canada or Nogales, Mexico to assist clients wishing to have LIT.
What is LIT Therapy?
LIT Therapy or actually LIT (Lymphocyte Immunization Therapy) is a procedure whereby white blood cells from the father to be are isolated from the father’s blood and injected into the skin of the prospective mother to introduce the husband’s immune cells to the woman’s immune system in preparation for pregnancy.
Most often LIT therapy is done after many failed cycles and suspected immunologic reasons for failed implantation. Because the growing embryo and fetal tissues are derived from both the mother and father’s genes, LIT therapy helps prep the mother’s immune system that may otherwise react to the growing embryo as a foreign substance by attacking it.
LIT is thought to mitigate this harmful reaction to the growing embryo/fetus by providing a “friendly,” introduction to paternal proteins, antigens, and cellular structures that could be classified as harmful.
