The goal of this treatment is to control the disease, shrink the tumor and prolong life.
In addition to the various chemotherapeutic agents that have been known for years, other therapies are also available. Monoclonal antibodies bind directly to tumor cells, thereby improving the effect of chemotherapy. Immunotherapy works in a different way. These drugs do not attack the tumor cells themselves, but activate the patient’s own defense system. The body’s own activated defense cells directly target the tumor cells.
To decide whether and which therapy has the best chance of success, we perform special examinations of the tumor tissue. In addition, we offer our patients innovative treatments within the framework of clinical studies.
