About the offer

As much as any other type of cancer, adrenal cancerous lesions intensely depend on certain chemicals, proteins, genes, and other factors to keep growing and developing. But, medical practitioners started to wonder if it was possible to impact the delivery, production, or interference of these factors with cancerous cells to stop them from growing. And turned out it is. So, it was called targeted therapy, the method that brakes the chain of cancerous cell supply and leads to slow degradation. Picking a suitable medication for targeted therapy might be a challenging task. The main factor creating additional issues is various mutations in adrenal cancer cells and the patient’s genome. So, suppose doctors suspect any mutations based on your previous reactions to treatment, phenotype (mostly, it’s a summary of various signs that can be traced with the naked eye), and cancer features. In that case, they might order genetic mutation testing. There are dozens of medications for targeted therapy of adrenal cancer Bevacizumab, Sorafenib, Sunitinib, and more. Most of these drugs are slowly delivered in the form of solutions intravenously. Each treatment session might take up to a few hours. Targeted therapy most often becomes a part of combined therapy, but sometimes it might be the only treatment method too.
