What is important for patients to know about targeted therapy?

  • It is effective even in the late stages of the disease and in cases where other methods do not help.
  • Targeted therapies are easier than chemotherapy because they only work on cancer cells.
  • To determine the feasibility of targeted therapy, it is necessary to conduct an immunohistochemical study of the tumor. It will determine the presence of genetic mutations and hormone receptors that are sensitive to targeted drugs.
  • There are more than 70 targeted drugs, less than 20 are registered in the CIS countries. Abroad, thanks to a large selection of drugs, it is possible to undergo treatment that is most effective in a particular case.
  • It is not necessary to stay abroad for such treatment. Medicines can be bought at a medical center abroad and taken at home according to the scheme that the doctor determines.

Bookimed has collected clinics around the world where targeted therapy is available. Hospitals are presented in a ranking based on the choice of our patients. Leave a request on the site, and the coordinating doctor will contact you. He will answer your questions about treatment, orient you on the cost of 1 course of targeted therapy. Together with him, you will choose the best medical center for your case..

We got to the MEMORIAL clinic due to an urgent diagnosis. The successful outcome of the operation depended on promptness. The question was about days. The operation was carried out the next day. The most difficult operation according to the Whipple method. Conducted by professor, head of surgery. Low bow to him. The entire staff of the department works perfectly, promptly responds to any request. Separately, I want to say about the work of the translator Aida. High qualification, operational work at any time of the day, sincerity - only a small description of her qualities. Special thanks for providing meals to the patient and accompanying person. The cuisine is very tasty, in some positions it is better than homemade. I enjoyed the vegetarian cuisine. But there is a different one. A low bow to all the staff of the clinic. They saved my husband's life.

Solingen Clinic for Oncology specializes in the treatment of different types of cancer. Oncologists prescribe a targeted therapy regimen if chemotherapy is ineffective or when it can show better results. Targeted therapy can be used without surgery or other treatment options. It is effective for skin, colorectal, blood, lung, kidney cancer, etc.

The mechanism of targeted therapy is the following: specific drugs administered into the body detect the protein of cancer cells. Then they are recognized, medications block the development of biochemical processes inside the tumor. As a result, malignant cells stop their growth and die.

Compared to chemotherapy, targeted therapy does not destroy healthy tissues, so a quantity of side effects is much lower.

Despite the fact that the full-time translator was on vacation and we took it on our own, the visit went very well. The rooms are very good, they look like 5 star rooms. As soon as we arrived, the nurses came to the ward, measured the pressure, helped in everything. In general, the clinic staff is friendly and helpful.

Asklepios Oncology Centers perform targeted therapy for treatment of different types of cancer. It is a new treatment option achieving high recovery rates even at the advanced stages. Oncologists develop targeted therapy regimen for each patient. Then doctors administer specific drugs in the veins of a patient. The procedure is performed on outpatient basis.

The targeted therapy ‘recognizes’ malignant tumors protein and blocks the biochemical reactions in the tumor. As a result, cancer cells stop dividing and die. The therapy also stimulates the immune system to detect cancer cells. The targeted therapy affects only malignant cells without affecting healthy tissues.

FAQ about Targeted therapy

Targeted therapy: what is it and how does it work?

Targeted therapy (targeted therapy, molecular targeted therapy, molecular targeted therapy) is a medical treatment of cancer using drugs that act specifically on cancer cells and do not harm healthy tissues.

Doctors may prescribe it as the main method of treatment or in combination with other procedures - surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.

How targeted therapy works in oncology

The principle of operation of a targeted drug depends on its type. The American Cancer Society identifies the following goals for targeted therapy:

  • block chemical signals that stimulate the growth and division of cancer cells;
  • change the proteins of cancer cells in such a way that the cells die;
  • prevent the appearance of new blood vessels that feed the tumor;
  • activate the immune system so that it recognizes and destroys tumors on its own;
  • deliver substances to cancer cells that will destroy them.

What are the types of targeted therapy?

Depending on the active substance that is part of the drug, the Canadian Cancer Society distinguishes the following types of molecular targeted therapy:

Monoclonal antibodies

When entering the body, monoclonal antibodies find cancer cells, attach to the shell and trigger a self-destruction mechanism in them.

Monoclonal antibodies also increase the effectiveness of chemotherapy and radiation therapy - they help chemotherapy drugs and radiation to penetrate into the cancer cell and destroy it.

The names of all drugs containing monoclonal antibodies end in “mab” (for example, Pembrolizumab, Trastuzumab, Rituximab, etc.).

Interesting to know:

Monoclonal antibodies are also used in immunotherapy, because they activate the immune system and it begins to destroy the tumor on its own.

Tyrosine kinase inhibitors

Tyrosine kinase inhibitors block the signaling of a cancer cell that causes it to grow.

The name of such drugs ends with “nib” (Imatinib, Gefitinib, etc.)

Apoptosis-inducing drugs

Such drugs activate signals in cancer cells that cause them to die.

Apoptosis-inducing drugs include Oblimersen, Bortezomib, Olaparib.

Angiogenesis inhibitors

They prevent the development of new blood vessels that feed the tumor.

Angiogenesis inhibitors include Sunitinib, Bevacizumab, and Thalidomide.

mTOR inhibitors

The substance blocks a protein that is responsible for the growth and division of cancer cells.

Medications based on mTOR inhibitors - Everolimus, Temsirolimus.

Hormonal medications

Hormone therapy is a subspecies of targeted therapy. It prevents hormones (estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone) from binding to receptors that help cancer cells grow. Due to this, the tumor dies.

How can the treatment take place and how long does it take?

Selection of the drug

To select a targeted therapy drug and determine the duration of treatment, the doctor prescribes an immunohistochemical study - an analysis of tumor tissue obtained by biopsy. It allows you to determine the type of cancer cells and identify genetic mutations and proteins that are targets for targeted drugs.

If the patient has already taken the material, it is necessary to bring blocks and glasses with you to the clinic. Doctors will review them and the procedure will not have to be repeated.

A unique test to select the most effective drug

The FoundationOne tumor test is available at the Ichilov and Assuta Clinic (Israel) and the Anadolu Medical Center (Turkey). It allows you to determine which target drug the tumor is most sensitive to. This test requires special laboratory equipment and doctor's qualifications, therefore it is available only in some clinics around the world.

Taking medication

Targeted therapy is inpatient or outpatient, depending on the general condition of the patient and the need for additional treatment. At the same time, it is not necessary to stay in the country in which you were selected and prescribed the drug. You can buy medicine, return home and take it according to the prescribed regimen in your place of residence.

Duration of treatment

The duration of 1 course of targeted therapy is individual. On average, it is 2 weeks. The doctor determines the number of courses individually for each patient. This is influenced by the diagnosis, general health, disease and body response to drugs.

Can there be side effects?

Because targeted drugs target cancer cells, this treatment is easier than chemotherapy. However, there is a risk of certain complications. The American Cancer Society lists them as:

  • rash;
  • capillary damage;
  • dryness, redness, itching of the skin and eyes;
  • increased sensitivity of the skin to sunlight and slow regeneration;
  • thinning hair and slowing down their growth;
  • high blood pressure;
  • coagulation disorders;
  • puffiness;
  • disorders of the digestive system, thyroid gland, liver, kidneys;
  • fatigue;
  • headache;
  • shortness of breath and other breathing problems;
  • cough.

How is the price of targeted therapy in oncology formed?

The price of targeted therapy depends on:

  • the prescribed drug and its dosage;
  • duration of treatment (number of courses);
  • selected country and clinic.

In our catalog, in the cards of clinics, the price is indicated for 1 course of treatment with targeted drugs. The required number of courses is determined by the attending physician based on the diagnostic results. Therefore, you can find out the final cost of targeted therapy after the doctor gets acquainted with the diagnosis and the results of the examination.
