Find and Treat the Root Cause of Cancer from Precision Cancer Medicine

Data from the National Cancer Institute have found that there were 139,206 new cancer patients in 2021 and 84,073 ones of which died. The top five cancer types that are the most prevalent among Thai people are liver and bile duct cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer and colon and rectal cancer as well as cervical cancer. Cancer treatment has been vastly developed in the present days in terms of both screening technologies and chemotherapy that are designed to reduce the chance of side effects and personalized treatment plan for each patient.

Dr. Vigrom Jennetisin, a medical oncologist at Vejthani Hospital, said the most important factor about cancer treatment is finding the cause of the cancer in each patient. The cause can be found by conducting screening test on cancerous cells to determine what mechanism has caused the cells to become cancerous and investigate what is the best medication to inhibit the cancer growth on each patient. The treatment could therefore be more precise and effective. This kind of treatment approach is called Precision Cancer Medicine. This is because a variety of mechanisms can result in a growth of cancer in the same organ.

Cancer Avatar – Precision Cancer Medicine

Generally, treating cancer with medications requires a waiting period to see how the patient responds to the given drugs. If the response is not as expected, the type of drugs may need to be changed.

However, currently, an innovative treatment called Cancer Avatar is used to deliver precise and suitable drugs to patients from the very beginning of the treatment process.

Dr. Vigrom Jennetisin, a medical oncologist at Vejthani Hospital, explained that treating cancer with Precision Medicine or personalized treatment approach is done by gene examinations to find the mutations that occurred in the cancer cells. The examination results will be used as the data for the doctor to determine the drugs that will be most suitable for the mutations. Although Precision Medicine is a personalized treatment, after medications have been given, the patient’s response to those medications needs to be constantly monitored for some time. The patient will undergo CT scan, which will detect cancer cells in the body. If the response to the treatment is poor or does not meet expectations, the type of drugs that have been used may need to be changed to increase the efficacy of the treatment.

CANCER VACCINE, a new option for cancer treatment

Cancer diseases have the highest fatality rate among Thais. The number of cancer patients is increasing each year with a 90% cause of the disease arising from external factors and lifestyles that raise the risk of cancer. Certain food consumptions, stress, viral infections, smokes, consumption of alcohol are some of the factors. Cancer treatment has therefore been developed to boost its efficacy on patients while reducing the side effects of the drugs to be as low as possible.

Cancer vaccine can be used in conjunction with other treatment options as follows to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment:
  • Surgery
  • Radiation Therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Hormonal therapy

“Targeted Therapy”, a precise medication that stops cancer by targeting its root

Targeted Therapy is a medication for cancer that has been developed to be exceptionally precise. Meaning, it specifically targets cells that have a mutated receptor or targets the receptor that has the primary mechanism of developing cancer. This leads to obtaining a good result of the treatment and a positive response to medications. More importantly, “targeted therapy has fewer side effects compared to receiving chemotherapy.”

A countless number of patients suffer every day from agonizing pain that is caused by various types of cancers. A conventional treatment option that has been used to treat cancer patients for decades like chemotherapy helps treat cancer disease but leaves patients with extensive damage from its side effects. With the advancement in healthcare technology, a breakthrough has been made in the field of cancer research. The discovery of Targeted Therapy in recent years is used to treat cancer cells by targeting or attacking specific genes or proteins that are involved in the growth of cancer cells without damaging other parts of the body, while Immunotherapy relies on the function of the patient’s immune system. Typically, the immune system monitors and destroys foreign substances, such as germs and cancer cells.
