Cancer Therapeutic Modalities

Often, modalities are combined to create a treatment program that is appropriate for the patient and is based on patient and tumor characteristics as well as patient preferences. The WHO list of essential medicines was updated in 2015 to include 30 cytotoxic and adjuvant medicines (anti-cancer medicines) that are part of proven clinically effective treatment regimens. Targeted Therapy is presently the most sought treatment modality for cancer which can work by triggering a patient’s own immune system to destroy cancer cells (immunotherapy) or may interfere with signals or proteins that prevent tumour cells from dividing and in case of Hormone therapy- they may be specifically used on hormones that have receptors to hormones.
