Title: ICTC- Innovational combination therapy for cancer
Biography: Imran Ahmed
Combination therapy or polytherapy is therapy that uses more than one medication. One major benefit of combination therapies is that they reduce development of drug resistance, since a pathogen or tumor is less likely to have resistance to multiple drugs simultaneously. Combination therapy may seem costlier than monotherapy in short term, but when used appropriately, it causes significant savings: lower treatment failure rate,lower case fatality ratios, fewer side effects than monotherapy, slower development of resistance and consequently. My aim is to show what are the different anti cancer drugs available as combination therapy, what is the mechanism of action, what are the drug interactions, contraindications. Which drugs are safe as per USFDA. If pregnant women is suffering with cancer which drugs should be prescribed, and which should be avoided. What are the different precaution that should be followed. And i also want to show what are the different types of cancer treatment that are used as adjuvant therapy such as Targeted therapy, Immunotherapy, Radiation therapy, Hormone therapy, Chemotherapy. Adjuvant therapy is often used after primary treatment . Adjuvant therapy given before the main treatment is called neoadjuvant therapy. My goal is to reduce Morbidity and Mortality, and provide effective treatment.
