New Method Of Delivering Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy often leaves cancer patients feeling sick and with a number of other side effects. For some people with advanced cancer, the treatment // and all they go through with it may not even get rid of their cancer. Now, doctors are taking a new, more targeted approach to delivering chemotherapy.

Perfusion therapy is the most aggressive way available to deliver chemotherapy right to the tumor and avoid the toxicity to the rest of the body .Blood flow to the organ is disconnected from the rest of the body. Heated chemotherapy is delivered and bathes the organ for an hour. "It's a durable treatment and much more successful than chemotherapy that's given through the vein for this disease,"say researchers.

It as found that patients treated with perfusion therapy had a 75-percent chance of having their tumor shrink by half. Results lasted up to 16 months. Some patients only need one treatment while others need multiple treatments for the procedure to be most effective.Perfusion therapy is being used to treat cancers of the liver, abdomen, and lung.
