Cancer Pharmacology

Pharmacology deals with the study of action of drug in the body.  Though some drugs showed good results in animal model, were not effective when used in cancer patient of less tumor burden. In such cases the tumor burden is first reduced by cancer surgery and then followed by chemotherapy. This is called as adjuvant therapy. In combination with chemotherapy, a heat therapy called Hyperthermia therapy can be used to control various cancer types. Electric voltage passed through tumor cells to stop their progression along with chemotherapy process is known as Electro chemotherapy. The use of chemotherapy alone for cancer treatments leads to many side effects like cardiotoxicity, nephrotoxicity, ototoxicity etc., Cancer genetics is 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.
