Anti Cancer Therapy
Cancer is characterized by an abnormal growth of cells. Cells are the building blocks of living things. Cancer grows out of normal cells in the body. Normal cells multiply when the body needs them and die when the body does not need them. Cancer occurs when the growth of cells in the body is out of control and cells multiply too quickly. There are more than 100 types of cancer, including brain cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer, Kidney cancer, lymphoma, prostate cancer, and skin cancer. If you’re considering a treatment for cancer, discuss it with us. We can help you in fighting it through our most-advanced stem-cell treatment.
Cancer is ultimately the result of cells that uncontrollably grow and do not die. It may be caused by any or all of the following:
Hormonal imbalance: Exposure to magnetic field, harmful radiations, sun’s rays for long, extended hours, infectious agent such as HIV, etc. Smoking and excessive intake of tobacco or alcohol
Genetic: Some types of cancer run in certain families, but most cancers are not clearly linked to the genes we inherit from our parents.
Having any of the following symptoms does not mean that a person has a cancer. Many other non-cancerous things can cause these signs and symptoms too. If you have any of these symptoms and they last for a long time or get worse, we advice speaking to a doctor on an urgent basis:
Unexplained weight loss
Excessive hair growth
Change in bowel habits or bladder function
Long-term constipation, diarrhea, or a change in the size of the stool may be a sign of colon cancer.
Pain when passing urine, blood in the urine, or a change in bladder function (such as needing to pass urine more or less often than usual) could be related to bladder or prostate cancer.
Sores that do not heal
White patches inside the mouth or white spots on the tongue
Unusual bleeding or discharge
Thickening or lump in the breast or other parts of the body
Indigestion or trouble swallowing
Recent changes in a wart or mole or any new skin change
Nagging cough or hoarseness
The first set of diagnosis procedure includes speaking to a doctor who conducts a basic physical examination and checks if the patient has been recently sick. If any symptoms are found, one or more of the following tests may be done:
AMAS: Anti-Malignin Antibody Screen test is designed to pick up cancers well in advance of other signs and symptoms, months before conventional medical tests can detect it.
Biological Terraine Assessment (BTA): It is a computerized device that measures your blood, saliva and urine for the amount of electrons present, pH balance, and minerals in these fluids. It shows how healthy the cells are and if the cellular environment is too acidic.
Carcinoembryonic antigen: A cancer marker to screen for colorectal cancer which is associated with digestive tract cancers as well as other malignant and non-malignant disorders. It is recommended for those with frequent constipation, diarrhea, or bleeding piles for an initial diagnostic tool.
CBC Blood test: It lists the amounts of CBC detected of about 44 substances normally found in the blood and compares the blood status with known indicators of diseases.
Darkfield Microscopy: It allows doctors to view blood cells to see how healthy the cells are. Additional lab tests can then be performed to provide a more comprehensive clinical picture of an individual's condition.
Endoscopic ultrasound: It can detect tumors and help in diagnosing GI cancers. Unlike a traditional endoscope, which looks inside the GI tract, the endoscopic ultrasound looks through the tissue into surrounding organs. Many times, if something is found, a biopsy is done at the same time as an endoscopic ultrasound to determine if it is cancer or just an infection.
Though the treatment of cancer has undergone significant changes with time, advancements in stem cell therapy have given a new hope that never existed before. The conventional cancer treatment methods include:
Surgery: In addition to removal of the primary tumor, the surgery is often considered necessary for determining the extent of the disease and whether it has metastasized to regional lymph nodes. Occasionally, it is also used to control symptoms, such as bowel obstruction or spinal cord compression. It may also be performed before other forms of treatment.
Radiation therapy: It implies the use of ionizing radiation to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. Radiation therapy can be administered externally via external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) or internally via brachytherapy. The effects of radiation therapy are localized and confined to the region being treated. It injures or destroys cells in the area being treated (the "target tissue") by damaging their genetic material, making it impossible for these cells to continue to grow and divide. Although radiation damages both cancer cells and normal cells, most normal cells can recover from the effects of radiation and function properly. The goal of radiation therapy is to damage as many cancer cells as possible, while limiting harm to nearby healthy tissue. Hence, it is given in many fractions, allowing healthy tissue to recover between fractions.
Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy is the treatment of cancer with drugs that can destroy cancer cells. These drugs rapidly affect dividing cells in general. They also interfere with cell division in various possible ways including duplication of DNA .
Targeted therapies: Targeted therapy constitutes the use of agents specific for the deregulated proteins of cancer cells.
Stem Cell Treatment
Several clinical trials are going on to use stem cells from various sources. We, at Stem Cell India Research Centre offer you therapy using stem cells using our advanced technology.
The stem cells could be of various types viz. Hematopoietic (CD 34+), Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) that are processed and isolated using Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and Good Lab Practices (GLP) and in accordance with AABB standards.
The stem cells of a patient are taken before the cancer treatment begins that destroys them. The stem cells are removed, or harvested, from either the patient’s bone marrow or the blood and then frozen. After high doses of chemo and/or radiation are given, the stem cells are thawed and given back to the patient.
We advise an early treatment to prevent spread of cancer in other parts of the body. To know more how we can help, today!
