Alternative & Conventional Liver Cancer Treatment: Moss Report On Liver Cancer (Updated For 2018)
By Ralph W. Moss, PhD
What’s New In Liver Cancer Treatment For 2018
A discussion of a new study of a single-arm phase II study of proton (beam) therapy at the University ofPennsylvania, Philadelphia medical center.James Allison, PhD, is the head of immunology at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Houston. While at the University of California, Berkeley, he invented an important new class of medications called “immune checkpoint inhibitors.” Allison is currently working on combining these medications with cancer-killing viruses, such as Newcastle Disease Virus (NDV) vaccines. These are already available at several foreign clinics.One of the most significant advances of recent years has been the development and FDA approval of an anti-cancer virus vaccine, Reolysin® (pelareorep). The 2018 Moss Report discusses this new medicine and its associated clinical trials.
New Drugs For Liver Cancer In 2018
FDA expanded the indications of regorafenib (Stivarga®) to includethe treatment of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) who had been previouslytreated with sorafenib.FDA also granted accelerated approval to nivolumab(Opdivo®)for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in patients who havebeen previously treated with sorafenib.
Liver Cancer Treatment
The Moss Report on Liver Cancer begins with a discussion of conventional oncology’s understanding and treatment of this major form of cancer. This includes such topics as surgery, local ablative therapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and other new treatments.
It discusses markers used to detect the existence and progression of the disease, and useful methods for determining whether or not a patient will benefit appreciably from various treatments. The main body of this Moss Report contains comprehensive, up-to-date information on conventional, integrative, experimental, complementary, CAM, dietary, and alternative cancer treatments and other matters of urgent concern to liver cancer patients.
We also discuss innovative and alternative treatment centers for treating liver cancer, in the US and abroad.
This 509-page report features a comprehensive discussion of the treatment and prevention of primary cancer of the liver – from the best techniques of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy to the latest complementary and alternative (CAM) approaches. New this year is a discussion of how science is harnessing the immune system in various ways to fight these cancers. This includes very encouraging results with “immune checkpoint inhibitors” such as nivolumab (Opdivo®) with an explanation of which liver cancer patients are likely to respond to this important new kind of treatment. There is also an up-to-the-minute discussion of adoptive immunotherapy and ablation.
No patient with HCC liver cancer or their loved ones should be without this outstanding resource.
