Treatments

When it comes to hematological diseases, prompt and effective treatment is crucial for managing the conditions and improving patients’ quality of life. With in-depth knowledge and experience, he employs a range of advanced treatment options to treat patients and ensure the best possible outcome.

Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy is one of the treatment options used to kill cancer cells. The procedure involves administration of powerful drugs that target and destroy rapidly dividing cancer cells throughout the body. Chemotherapy can be given orally or through injections. The specific chemotherapy drugs used are determined based on the stage of cancer. Chemotherapy treats cancer through several mechanisms such as destroying cancer cells where specific drugs are designed to target and kill cancer cells to prevent them from growing and dividing.

Other approaches include shrinking tumours, making them more manageable, to reduce symptoms and improve the effectiveness of other treatments. Even in advanced or metastatic cancer cases, chemotherapy procedure is used to manage the cancer-related symptoms and improve quality of life.

Immunotherapy

Immunotherapy is a type of cancer treatment that uses the body’s immune system to fight against cancer cells. It involves the use of medications that enhance the immune response to destroy cancer cells. The main aim of immunotherapy is to boost the immune system’s ability to eliminate cancer cells, thereby preventing the spread of the disease.

The procedure aims to enhance the body’s natural immune response against cancer cells. Different types of immunotherapy, such as checkpoint inhibitors or CAR-T cell therapy, are designed to specifically target cancer cells. This targeted approach helps reduce the risk of damage to normal tissues. Immunotherapy might be combined with other cancer treatments for better results and improved chances of survival.

Bone marrow transplant

A bone marrow transplant is a procedure that involves replacing damaged and diseased bone marrow with healthy stem cells.This procedure is typically used to treat various conditions such as Cancers, Genetic disorders, and autoimmune diseases. During a bone marrow transplant, the patient receives high-dose of chemotherapy or radiation therapy to destroy the abnormal or malfunctioning bone marrow cells. After the conditioning treatment, the patient receives healthy stem cells, either from their own body (autologous transplant) or from a compatible donor (allogeneic transplant).

The transplanted stem cells then migrate to the patient’s bone marrow and start producing healthy blood cells, helping in the recovery of the immune system, producing red and white blood cells, thereby increasing the blood clotting ability. The success of a bone marrow transplant depends on factors such as the underlying condition, overall health and a suitable donor.

ATG therapy

ATG therapy stands for Anti-Thymocyte Globulin therapy. It involves the administration of antibodies to suppress the activity of specific immune cells known as T lymphocytes or T cells. ATG therapy is performed after organ transplantation and the treatment of certain immune-related conditions.
ATG therapy (Anti-Thymocyte Globulin therapy) works by targeting and suppressing the activity of T lymphocytes or T cells, which are immune cells.

The therapy involves the administration of antibodies that bind to proteins on the surface of T cells, interfering with their normal functioning. By suppressing T cell activity, ATG therapy modulates the immune response, reducing inflammation and preventing T cells from attacking transplanted organs. ATG Therapy is beneficial in conditions such as organ transplantation, where it helps prevent organ rejection and in immune-mediated conditions like aplastic anemia where it stimulates immune reconstitution by allowing the bone marrow to recover and produce healthy blood cells.

Novel therapies

Novel therapies refer to cutting-edge approaches in the field of medical treatment that offer new and unique ways to address diseases or conditions. These therapies often involve advanced techniques and medications that have emerged through scientific research. Novel therapies aim to improve patient outcomes, enhance treatment efficacy, minimize side effects and target specific molecular or genetic factors associated with the disease.

Some examples of how novel therapies used in treatment includes Gene Therapy which aims to correct genetic defects or introduce therapeutic genes into a patient’s cells. This approach treats inherited disorders by replacing or modifying faulty genes. And, Stem Cell Therapy which uses stem cells to repair damaged tissues or organs. It involves the transplantation of stem cells into the body that promotes tissue repair and regeneration. This approach is used in treating conditions such as spinal cord injuries, cardiovascular diseases, and certain types of cancer.
