Types of Chemotherapy Treatment Plans

Mesothelioma is an aggressive kind of cancer. For thousands of people coping with mesothelioma, chemotherapy is sometimes the only available treatment option, due to the difficulty of operating near the lungs and heart. Chemotherapy has been used as a cancer treatment since shortly after WWII, with new research and advancements constantly appearing. Sadly, chemotherapy is not always effective against mesothelioma.

It has been known for decades that asbestos exposure can be deadly, yet thousands of people continue to be diagnosed with asbestos-related illnesses. The asbestos attorneys at Williams Kherkher believe that anyone who knowingly exposed others to asbestos should be held accountable for the devastation that they have caused. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with an asbestos-related illness, you may be entitled to compensation. Call our offices today at 800-781-3955 to discuss your case.

Chemotherapy Treatment Schemes

There are several different treatment methods that can involve chemotherapy, including:

  • Combined modality – chemo used along with radiation or surgery
  • Combination – using several drugs together
  • Adjuvant – to prevent recurrence, usually after surgery
  • Neoadjuvant – to shrink the primary tumor
  • Palliative – when a cure is impossible, to limit tumor growth and increase life expectancy

Almost all chemotherapy treatments are cyclical, with periods of recovery from toxicity in between.
