Customized Cancer Therapy aims to improve treatment outcomes for all cancer patients. It is part of complex diagnostic and prognostic tools that can more accurately assess the health status of new patients.
Photodynamic Therapy can extend the lives of patients with cancers in advanced stages. PDT applications are now used for treatment of pre-cancerous disorders, age-related deterioration (small skin spots) and communicable diseases because of nominal invasiveness and selective remedial effects. The therapy is beneficial due to its affordability, localized treatment, non-toxic outcome despite repeated treatment, and stimulation of immunity. Possibilities for cure are higher with more lasting control of tumors and more chances for outpatient therapy.
PDT has two essential components. One is the so-called photo sensitizer and the other is described as optical radiation in which the wavelength matches up with the photo sensitizer’s absorption capacity.
It is effective for certain kinds of cancers like breast, lung, esophagus, and cervix wherein the usual treatments are not appropriate. PDT relieves symptoms in patients in where the cancer obstructs the airway, or in which the cancer cells slightly invade surrounding tissues. It is extremely selective and focused.
It is free from surgical risks, severe impairment and general complications. PDT sessions can be repeated many times as required. One PDT procedure facilitates treatment and fluorescent cancer diagnosis. Many patients show complete tumor absorption into the circulation of cells or tissue after a single session. This can be performed even under outpatient conditions.
This application consists of three key components. These are the Photosensitizer, source of light and tissue oxygen.
How does this work? The light source’s wavelength or length of wave cycle must be enough to stimulate the photosensitizer so it can produce free radicals. The free radical is described in science as any uncharged molecule which is short-lived and highly reactive. Free radicals are produced by means of transfers from substrate molecules and highly-reactive oxygen state or singlet oxygen. Free radical is categorized as Type 1 while Singlet oxygen is said to be Type 2.
Are Free Radicals Harmful or Not?
According to research conducted at Rice University (a leading research university) in Houston Texas, “Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms with an odd (unpaired) number of electrons and can be formed when oxygen interacts with certain molecules. Once formed these highly reactive radicals can start a chain reaction, like dominoes. Their chief danger comes from the damage they can do when they react with important cellular components such as DNA, or the cell membrane. Cells may function poorly or die if this occurs. To prevent free radical damage the body has a defense system of antioxidants.”
However, new research also said free radicals can help prolong the lives of cells in the body.
Free Radicals have therapeutic effects.
An article from the Molecular Hydrogen Foundation stated:
“While they may have negative side effects at high levels, they are also important biological signaling molecules that exert therapeutic and protective effects against diseases, and play a pivotal role in mediating the benefits of exercise.”
With regards to Free Radicals, Photo Dynamic Therapy causes the formation of a large amount of free radicals in the patient’s body. These free radicals have therapeutic potential and are not at all destructive if controlled. These can protect the human body against infectious organisms. The radicals also play an important role in a healthy body provided there is no over production of these radicals.
PDT is comprised of multiple stages:
- The specialist administers the photosensitizer which has minimal dark toxicity. It can be applied on a specific area of the patient’s body or through systemic administration if there is no light.
- Once an adequate amount of photosensitizer appears in the diseased tissue, it is then activated by exposure to light only for a certain interval.
- The dosage of light supplies enough energy that accelerates the photosensitizer. However, it is not sufficient to damage the healthy tissues.
- The reactive oxygen takes care of exterminating target cells.
Apoptosis & Necrosis
At this point, we will shift the discourse to Apoptosis and Necrosis.
Apoptosis refers to cell death caused by normal and healthy body processes. On the other hand, Necrosis is the death of cells set off by diseases or other external factors like infection or trauma.
Apoptosis also takes place as defense mechanism during healing. It is practically a routine occurrence and beneficial to organisms. Necrosis is considered irregular and harmful. While necrosis is sometimes pointed out as a possible form of programmed cell death, it is deemed as an un-programmed or unnatural cell death progression.
Medical research says apoptosis seldom requires any form of medical treatment. On the contrary necrosis (if not treated early) can result to severe injury, unintentional cell damage or even death. Necrosis is also produced by the presence of toxins, excessive heat, radiation, shock, and lack of oxygen because of blocked blood movement.
Photochemical Reaction is the chemical reaction brought about by absorption of energy in light form.
According to a published Abstract culled from Photodynamic Therapy (PDT): PDT Mechanisms:
Please see (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3572346/)
“Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a light based therapy used to ablate tumors. As practiced in oncology a photosensitizing agent is applied and then activated by a specific wavelength and energy of light. This light energy in the presence of oxygen will lead to the creation of the photodynamic reaction which is cyto and vasculo toxic.”
When the photosensitizer is in a so-called agitated condition, it has the capacity to intermingle with molecular triplet oxygen. The interaction generates radicals and reactive oxygen varieties which are critical to the Type 2 Mechanism. Said species consist of Hydroxyl radicals, Singlet oxygen and Super Oxide ions. All of them have the capacity to act together with various cellular components such as unsaturated lipids or constituents of fats, nucleic acids (acids seen in living cells) and amino acid residues (remains of these protein constituents).
In a normal session of PDT, the target area is irradiated utilizing a particular wavelength of light from 15 up to 20 minutes. The light source is typically a laser. The system of light cables directs the light into the internal organs. High concentration of photosensitizers in the cancer cells will ultimately destroy those cells because of highly toxic photochemical reactions. The tumor shrinks or degenerates during the next two to four weeks. These cells will be replaced by normal and healthy tissues.
Effectiveness of Our Customized Cancer Treatment
What is the promise of personalized cancer medicine?
Ultimately, personalized cancer medicine seeks to improve treatment outcomes for all cancer patients. It is part of complex diagnostic and prognostic tools that can more accurately assess the health status of new patients.
ILACM never fails to inform its patients that medical science has never been perfect. There are different interpretations of successful treatment. Our belief is a patient’s slight improvement is only the start of that person’s long journey towards a successful healing experience.
Likewise, it is possible for the negative effects of multiple treatment methods to catch up with the patient’s condition at some point in time. There can be adverse side effects, discomforts or even sudden death. This negative outcome can cast doubts on treatment protocols of ILACM.
Even so, ILACM uses well-researched, scientifically-proven, well-documented natural remedies together with advanced developed technologies that have been utilized for over 40 years and being used in over 30 countries.
This is precisely the reason why we are very confident that ILACM’s medical approaches are most appropriate as use for complementary with conventional or alternative medicine. We have always maintained that the effectiveness of a single treatment depends on the capacity of the human body to adapt to said treatment. In any event, the ILACM medical protocol does not improve the patient’s condition, the worst to expect is a “Status Quo” or no changes in the individual’s state.
We would like everyone to understand that not all modalities are 100% accurate. In order to benefit from our treatment protocol, we have always advised patients to discuss their situation freely with their attending doctors irrespective of what type of medical approaches they are undergoing. In most cases, patients and their relatives also consult the world-wide web and friends for their experience in medical treatment. This is to avoid any misinterpretation of our integrative and complementary approach.
