INDIANAPOLIS, June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For the first time in the United States, the State of Indiana has approved the opening of a facility that offers Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) and Sonodynamic Therapy (SDT). These therapies use a whole new approach from the traditional "three legged stool" of US cancer therapies of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation by applying specific light and ultrasound waves to kill cancer cells and tumors.
In Australia, the UK, in China, Russia and around the world, cancer patients have been treated with an entirely different kind of cancer care: non-toxic, minimally to non-invasive therapies that don't disfigure the body or come with detrimental side or after effects.
Indiana Center for Advanced Medicine Inc., opened in May 2013 currently offers Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) and Sonodynamic Therapy (SDT) to treat prostate, breast and skin cancers in the early stages of diagnosis. Prospective patients will schedule a telephone consultation with one of iCAM's team of physicians to find out if they clinically qualify for treatment at the existing clinics. iCAM is currently in the process of establishing its new HQ medical center in Indianapolis which will avail treatment for approx. 30-40 patients per month.
Cancer treatments of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery may sometimes be as damaging and disfiguring as the cancer it treats. The hope of PDT and SDT treatments is, while effective in killing cancer, they are also body friendly. Side effects are minimal to none. Evidenced-based results and early clinical trials show PDT and SDT can be effective at killing cancer while maintaining the overall health of the patient during and after treatment.
While there is a place for conventional surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapies, these are no longer the only medical options open to early stage cancer patients in the U.S. PDT and SDT offer patients the chance of a less radical choice in their battle with cancer.
