Cancer is a condition which involves abnormal cell growth. These cells can invade or spread to other parts of the body. There are many different types of cancer such as breast cancer, skin cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer and lymphoma. However, the symptoms depend on the type of cancer. There are various cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.
Scientists are conducting breakthrough research to find out the latest treatment options for cancer. They are finding new strategies to produce drug carrier in order to treat cancer with a higher efficiency rate.
Let’s take a look at some of the cancer breakthrough researches:
FDA has approved immunotherapy for the treatment of cancer. A new immunotherapy approach has been found that can help to cure the cancer patients in an effective way. Two CAR T-cell immunotherapy has been approved. In this process, the patient’s immune cells are taken and equipped with superior cancer-targeting receptors. This therapy is for the patients suffering from Leukemia and Lymphoma.
Checkpoint immunotherapy is considered as the treatment for patients suffering from solid tumors, having an unstable genome. This therapy is also beneficial for patients having lung and bladder cancer.
Nanotechnology is a growing technology that has gained a lot of popularity these days. Gold nanoparticles prove to be promising agents for cancer diagnostics. They act as drug carriers and photo thermal agents. These particles can also be used as radiosensitizers which means making cancer cells more susceptible to ionizing radiation.
- Laser irradiation of tiny nanoparticles injected into the tumors can help to destroy the cancer cells. Nanotechnology can be used along with photodynamic cancer therapy in the treatment of cancer.
- Nanotechnology can also be used to monitor the effectiveness of immunotherapy.
Recent breakthrough researches have transformed the treatment options for cancer. With the advancement in technology, more efficient methods have been discovered to find out the cure for cancer.
