Somatostatin Receptor Ligand Therapy-A Novel Therapy for Neurocytoma.

07:00 EST 5th February 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Somatostatin Receptor Ligand Therapy-A Novel Therapy for Neurocytoma."

Neurocytoma (NC) is a rare low grade tumor of the central nervous systems with a 10-year survival of 90% and local control rate of 74%. However 25% of NCs are atypical with an elevated Ki-67 labeling index >2%, and exhibit a more aggressive course with high propensity for local recurrence and/or craniospinal dissemination. Although no standard treatment regimen exists for these atypical cases, adjuvant stereotactic or conventional radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy are typically offered but yield inconsistent results.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.

A therapeutic approach, involving chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery, after initial regimens have failed to lead to improvement in a patient's condition. Salvage therapy is most often used for neoplastic diseases.

Drug therapy given to augment or stimulate some other form of treatment such as surgery or radiation therapy. Adjuvant chemotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.

The use of art as an adjunctive therapy in the treatment of neurological, mental, or behavioral disorders.

Therapy with two or more separate preparations given for a combined effect.
