What is better Actinium, Radium or Lutetium for prostate cancer?

A new approach to prostate cancer treatment can be a lifeline for many people. As the U.S. Food and Drug Association has approved a new PSMA therapy, the level of successful recovery has rapidly grown.  Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is a protein produced in small quantities in the normal gland but multiplied amounts during the malignant process. That's why PSMA becomes the perfect target for anti-tumour therapy. The radiopharmaceuticals are unique treatment options because of their ability to bind to this protein and deliver radiation doses to cancer cells. In such a way, unnormal cells are destroyed and killed.

Transarterial chemoembolization for liver cancer treatment

Most TACEs require about 90 minutes. About 70% of the patients will have their liver problems get better. TACE therapy can be repeated in 1-2 months after the first procedure. TACE can halt tumors from expanding or make them smaller in about two-thirds of cases.

Transarterial chemoperfusion for liver cancer treatment

Transarterial chemoperfusion (TACP) - is a minimally invasive treatment based on the selective regional use of the chemotherapeutic substance. TACP method allows carrying out a very high dose of chemotherapy to the disease focus. The principle of TACP is to use different blood supplies tumours in the liver and healthy organ tissues. This treatment method is built on the fact that 75% of healthy liver tissue feeds on venous blood and only 25% of arterial blood. On the contrary, 95% of liver tumours are supplied through the hepatic arteries. The new method of treating liver cancer is effective, safe and aims to improve the quality of life. Furthermore, TACP has minimal side effects.
Proton therapy for the liver cancer treatment  image

Proton therapy for the liver cancer treatment

Proton therapy - is advanced and high-precision radiation therapy for tumours. It is a form of radiation therapy used to destroy cancer cells. Instead of X-rays used in radiation therapy, proton therapy uses the high energy of protons, which have a more accurate effect on the tumour. Compared to other radiological methods, proton therapy focuses more power on the tumour itself with less radiation on the surrounding healthy tissues.

High-intensity focused ultrasound for prostate cancer

High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a "minimally invasive method" (without incisions) that uses ultrasonic waves to treat prostate cancer. During the HIFU procedure, ultrasonic waves are produced with higher intensity and in a highly focused form. As a result, cancer cells are destroyed under ultrasonic waves in a particular zone with high accuracy.

High-intensity focused ultrasound for liver cancer

High-intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a new method of non-invasive ablation that can be used to remove various solid tumours, including primary and secondary liver cancer. Ultrasound energy is focused on tumour foci and causes coagulation necrosis (destruction) of the tumour due to thermal exposure.
