What are the latest cancer treatments?
Immunotherapy: it is a promising strategy to treat cancer by stimulating the body’s immune system. It leads the body itself to destroy tumor cells but it only works for specific and numbered types of cancer. It is a new way to trigger the immune system to attack cancer cells. This approach consists of removing cancer cells from the body, treating them with chemotherapy drugs then placing them back again in the tumor hoping they’ll do the work needed. Researchers hope to be able to use this latest cancer treatment for many more types of cancer.
Radiosurgery: it is a very precise therapeutic radiology though it has the word surgery in it, it does not involve serious scaring or opening up the patient. Very focused beams of radiation are used to treat tumor tissues without incisions. It can be used to treat abnormal tissue in the brain and spine, including cancer. It is considered the latest cancer treatment and many hospitals and doctors have started training on it and implementing it in their cancer centers and as a way of treatment.
There are 3 types of radiosurgery and each uses different equipment and sources.
- Cobalt60 systems (gamma knife)
- Linear accelerator (LINAC systems)
