Biomarker Testing for Cancer Treatment
Biomarkers or tumour markers help oncologists to diagnose and select the best treatment for the patient. Every cancer type has a distinct pattern of biomarkers. By studying these biomarkers Oncologists get a clear picture of the type of cancer and the treatment type that it needs.
Biomarker testing is also called tumour testing, tumour genetic testing, somatic testing, and molecular testing or molecular profiling. Sometimes they also determine what type of treatment option exactly fits certain cancers.
Oncologists use chemotherapy to kill or reduce the chance of cancer returning to a patient’s body. This procedure involves using drugs to kill or slow the growth of cancer cells. It can be used to treat cancer or ease cancer symptoms.
Certain types of cancer cells use hormones to grow themselves. Those types of cancer cells can be treated or stopped from growing further by using Hormone therapy. Oncologists perform hormone therapy by influencing hormones in the patient body.
Common types of hormone therapy include Hormone replacement therapy (HRT), Androgen replacement therapy (ART), and more.
Oncologists perform hyperthermia, in which a particular body tissue in the patient’s body is heated to as high as 113 F to damage and kill cancer cells in that particular tissue. This procedure is carried out without causing any harm or damage to neighbouring tissues. This treatment is also called thermal therapy, thermal ablation, or thermotherapy.
Oncologists perform Hyperthermia only when cancers are in a critical stage. Most of the time cancers are treated with chemotherapy and radiation therapy. If none of those treatment procedures succeeds then Hyperthermia is used. Hyperthermia is used to treat a wide range of cancers such as
head and neck cancer
Photodynamic Therapy is also one of the common treatment types used to treat cancers. Oncologists use a drug in this procedure that is activated by a light photosensitizer. Once the drug is injected into the body, cancer cells absorb the drug within 24 to 74 hours. Cancer cells that absorb the photosensitizer are exposed to light. The light exposure makes the photosensitizer make a form of oxygen that kills cancer cells.
Radiation Therapy involves using ionizing radiation as a part of cancer treatment to kill or control the growth of the cancer cells. In this procedure, the ionizing radiation damages the DNA of the cancerous cells leading to cancer cell death. At low doses, it can be used in X-rays to get a clear picture of the inside body of the patient like teeth or broken bones.
