Many of us heard the term “chemotherapy”, let’s learn more about it.
To be precise, chemotherapy is one of modern highly technological methods of treatment for different types of malignant tumours buy injecting of special chemicals and medications in the body.
This treating method has systemic influence on the body of the cancer patient. Reaching the cells drugs are accumulated in pathological tissues and destroy them.
There is no universal approach while choosing the scheme of treatment. It depends on each case.
The course of chemotherapy is determined by a number of factors:
In Onco.Rehab clinic chemotherapy, as a treating method, is an important element of integrative therapy.
The usage of the method
Chemotherapy can be prescribed:
Chemotherapy: types according to the time of the course
Let us talk about several types of chemotherapy, which take place in different periods.
It is a complex of auxiliary therapeutic measures, which goal is to prevent the recurrence of identified and stopped atypia.
Cytostatics, that are used here, inhibit and suppress pathological processes in tissues. They positively influence active division and reproduction of healthy tissues.
As this method has a disastrous effect on metastases, the recurrence is minimized, and the chances of the patient’s recovery significantly increases.
This method represents the usage of cytostatics before the surgery.
The main goal of the treatment is to reveal the reaction of the malignant tumour on the injected medicines, which aim to decrease the size of the tumour.
Moreover, the injected medicines affect microcancerous lesions and metastases, increasing the resectability of the tumour.
It takes place during the preoperative period and is meant to prepare the patient’s body to the surgery.
In medicine this method is widely used to increase the patient’s quality of life when the tumour is considered to be inoperable.
When other treating methods are impossible, palliative chemotherapy is used.
It happens in the case of:
Injected cytostatics inhibit tumour growth, help reduce the pain syndrome and, as a result, to ease the patient’s health condition and prolong the patient’s life.
Medications, that are used in chemotherapy, are divided by the colour of their components.
Thus, medicine distinguishes the following types of chemotherapy:
To increase the efficiency of treatment courses specialists, as a rule, recommend polychemotherapy combined with other methods.
As for medications, used in Onco.Rehab clinic, it is necessary to notice that at the end of 2019 the purchase of original medicines made up more than 80% in financial terms. They include:
It is one of fast-growing methods of chemotherapy. It affects atypical cells at the molecular and genetic cells.
The selective and ultra-precise disorder of delicate mechanisms of cellular metabolism leads to the situation when injected medications significantly inhibit the proliferation of atypical cells and even induce their self-destruction. At the same time, metabolism of healthy elements can hardly be negatively affected. It means that the patient’s risk to face side effects of chemotherapy is minimal.
Induction chemotherapy is used:
This method is usually chosen in 3 cases:
Medical practice proves that the injection of medication in combination with hyperthermia increases the effectiveness of cancer treatment. This strategy is applied in case of:
An undeniable advantage of hyperthermic therapy lies in the significant reduction of toxic consequences that affect the patient’s body.
Platinum-based medicines have already proven themselves in the fight against atypical changes. Such medicines are able to influence the mutated cells, which are localized in the zones where other medications are ineffective.
Platinum medicines help against tumours in:
Gentle chemotherapy means the treatment of tumour centres with cytostatic medications, which minimize side effects. However, one should understand that cytostatics are less effective than other anticancer drugs.
This method is typically used:
Doses of chemotherapy medications are increased at the presence of any types of lymphoma, as the risk of rapid growth and metastasis even at early stages is very high.
High-dose chemotherapy shows remarkable toxic exposure on the patient’s body, e.g. vomiting, nausea, diarrhea.
To give the cancer patient possibility to recover, breaks between the courses are longer.
Choosing the type of chemotherapy specialists always follow one main principle: not to do harm to the patient.
