Preventing tumour recurrence
For cancer survivors, the fight isn’t always over. Many are concerned about the possibility of recurrence, and living with uncertainty is never easy. Discovering an intervention that can prevent cancer recurrence has the potential to significantly enhance quality of life.
Fighting the main threat: metastasis
Evidence is occasionally discovered supporting various, often simple interventions that improve existing treatment protocols. These additional therapies prevent tumour recurrence and contribute significantly to better outcomes. With 90% of deaths resulting from tumour recurrence and metastasis, primary tumours are not the main threat. While the mechanism of action of several interventions are not yet fully understood, research indicates that their influence on dormant cancer cells and the body’s own cancer-fighting mechanisms are at the core of their potential.
