Advanced Treatment Options

  • Clinical Trials - Controlled research studies, designed to answer medical questions about a new treatment or discovery. Patients, who qualify and choose to participate, receive care from experts in the development of new treatments. 
  • Cytotoxic Chemotherapy - Kills cancer cells using anticancer drugs. It eliminates cancer cells by dividing cells, which creates the common chemotherapy side effects
  • Hormone Therapy - Targets the body’s hormones by adding, blocking or removing them from the body in an attempt to slow or stop cancer cell growth.
  • Immunotherapy - Uses the body’s own immune system to fight cancer, either by stimulating the immune system to attack cancer cells or providing it with antibodies or other tools to combat it.
  • Intrathecal Chemotherapy (IT Chemo) - Used to treat cancers that have reached the central nervous system, including some types of leukemia and lymphoma.
  • Intravesical Therapy - Used to treat bladder cancer by giving chemo directly into the bladder through a catheter rather than giving it by mouth or injecting it into a vein. A major advantage of this therapy is that the drugs usually do not reach other parts of the body, which helps patients avoid many of the side effects that can occur with chemo.
  • Molecularly Targeted Therapy - Reduces toxicity and increase effective levels of chemotherapy by targeting the delivery of the anticancer drugs.
  • Radiation Therapy – Remove, kill or damage cancer cells in a certain area.
  • Targeted Therapy - Designed to directly interact with targeted tumor. They block tumor cell proliferation, instead of kill cells like standard chemotherapy.

Hematology

At Millennium Physicians, hematologists, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists work as a multidisciplinary team to provide an individualized treatment plan for patients with blood cancers like leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

Blood cancers typically start where blood is produced in the bone marrow. The normal blood cell development process is usually disrupted by an abnormal blood cell or cancer cell. These cells prevent your body from normal functions, like fighting infection or excessive bleeding.

For more information on blood disorders or cancers, visit one of our physicians or visit some helpful websites like American Society of Hematology, American Cancer Society or Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
