Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/12/2018 -- Adjuvant therapy is defined as treatment given in addition to primary (initial) treatment. In other words, it is an additional treatment that is designed to help to reach the ultimate goal. Adjuvant therapy for cancer usually refers to surgery followed by chemo- or radiotherapy to help decrease the risk of cancer recurring. Adjuvant therapy is most beneficial for advanced stages or aggressive cancers. It can be used in the treatment of brain cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, throat & stomach cancer, pancreatic cancer, colorectal cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer, ovarian cancer, bladder cancer, endometrial cancer and testicular cancer.
Adjuvant therapy is extremely strenuous, and not every patient will be physically able to handle it. Hence, it is important that people are healthy enough to handle adjuvant therapy. Therefore, people need to discuss their options with a doctor. An ideal patient for adjuvant treatment consideration has moderate to high risk of cancer recurrence, without any other serious illnesses such as heart or liver disease, and with a good performance status. Patient undergoing adjuvant therapy will benefit from the extra treatment to the extent that it outweighs the drawbacks of potential side effects and the inconvenience of ongoing treatment.
The Global Adjuvant Breast Cancer Therapy Market can be segmented based on therapy, distribution channel, and region. In terms of therapy, the market can be categorized into chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, immunotherapy, and targeted therapy. Chemotherapy is used in early stages of breast cancer. Agents used in adjuvant breast cancer chemotherapy include taxane, anthracyclines, tamoxifen, and aromatase inhibitors. Combination chemotherapy regimens are standard recommendations in the adjuvant setting. Radiation therapy is highly localized and uses high power X-rays to kill breast cancer cells. Hormone therapy acts either by limiting a breast tumor's ability to accept hormones or by reducing the body's production of certain hormones. Immunotherapy supplements the body's defense systems. Targeted therapy limits the ability of a particular cellular abnormality to grow and flourish; the overall growth of tumors may be slowed or even halted. Based on end-user, the global adjuvant breast cancer treatment market can be divided into hospitals, specialty centers, and others. The global adjuvant breast cancer therapy market can be segmented into five major regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America.
