Trends in cancer treatment

Nearly all of us have been touched personally by a loved one or a close friend who is or has gone through cancer treatments. In most cases, treatment includes more than one drug, sometimes an infusion given at the oncologist’s office and, often, repeated in cycles until remission or adverse side effects appear. More patients now are being treated at home with potent oral anti-cancer drugs.
