Cancer Pharmacology

Pharmacology deals with action of drug in the body.  Drugs showed good results in animal model, when used in cancer patient of less tumor burden was not so effective. In such case the tumor burden can be reduced first by cancer surgery and it is followed by chemotherapy can be done, this is called as adjuvant therapy. In combination with chemotherapy, a heat therapy called hyperthermia therapy can be used to control various cancer types. The electric volts are passed on the tumor cells to stop there progression along with chemotherapy is known as electrochemotherapy. The use of chemotherapy alone for cancer treatments leads to many side effects like cardiotoxicity, nephrotoxicity, ototoxicity etc., Cancer genetics will be helpful for identifying the mode of treatment for Cancer. Cancer biomarkers effectively assist in finding tumor cells and treating them. Cancer Conferences gives a perception about the new strategies emerging in cancer therapy.
