Cancer patients receiving immunotherapy drugs more prone to heart problems, death from a stroke: Study

A new study has found that the risks of heart failure, irregular heart beat (arrhythmia), inflammation of the heart (myocarditis or pericarditis) or heart-related death such as a heart attack were higher in cancer patients who were receiving immunotherapy drugs as compared to those who were not being treated in this way.

It’s not just chemotherapy, there are less toxic tools to fight cancer

In the recent years, a series of clinical trials have shaken up the cancer world, showing it was possible to treat and even cure some of the most difficult forms of cancer without resorting to the most toxic techniques.
So far, the best known cancer treatment was chemotherapy, which aims to kill tumours but is so toxic that it also attacks healthy cells.(Shutterstock)

Breakthrough: Immunotherapy cures late-stage breast cancer, says study

In a major breakthrough for immunotherapy, a woman with an aggressive form of breast cancer which defied chemotherapy and spread to other organs, was cured with an experimental treatment that triggered her immune system.
The study shows how the power of the immune system can be harnessed to attack even the most difficult-to-treat cancers.(Shutterstock)

Targeted cancer treatment could replace chemo and radiation in future

Looking beyond existing treatments for cancer, such as chemotherapy and radiation, researchers are focusing on treatments that target a tumour’s individual genetic traits for better results.
Targeted therapy involves testing tumours for clues about their genetic mutation, and matching drugs to block the cancer’s growth on a molecular level.(Shutterstock)
