Future Treatments for Breast Cancer & Risk Factors

Dec 23rd 2013 at 5:26 AM

Texas is well known for its highly talented and recommended oncologists that cure cancer of the human body. One of the most common cancers to be diagnosed is breast cancer. Many techniques and curing procedures have already been updated to kill the cancerous cells. The methods include chemotherapy and radiation therapy. These treatments have shown a positive impact and have become responsible for reducing the number of patients battling this disease. Many centers of Texas perform research keeping side effects in mind and some new breast cancer treatment options have been developed for future treatments. Some of them are as follows:

Using breast cancer resistance genes

Some oncologists have discovered a gene that is able to determine cancer occurrence in particular breasts, which can be treated with chemotherapy drugs. With the help of this gene, researchers are able to make out which therapy or method is best suitable for curing cancer.

Using vaccines

Some special vaccines are given to patients not to kill the cancer cells but to develop and increase the immunity of the body to eradicate cancer cells. With such vaccines, the side effects are minimized and can be observed. The body fights with the cells naturally allowing the body to fight the disease. It is less toxic in nature and has a sustained antibody that adds a major advantage to this technique.

Interventional radiology

Talented researchers of Texas are looking forward to using magnets in curing cancer. The main operation of the magnet is to pull the drugs used in chemotherapy into tumours. The magnets are very minute in size which can be diffused in the body and it is attached to the drugs. The magnet is placed just above the affected site and magnet starts its job by pulling the drugs out of the blood vessels into the tumour. This technique is not yet under process, but the method is really very promising and is expected to come in future years. Using such technique will ensure the cancer is completely out of the body.

So, there are some amazing and unique techniques being developed to cure their breast cancer at the core and eradicate it completely. Texas is proud of the services it is providing to help battle this disease.
