Liver metastasis is one of the common causes of death in breast cancer patients. In 2013, ASCO carried a study on liver metastases of solid tumors. By a comparison between the remission rate (RR) and overall survival time (OS) of hepatic trans-catheter arterial chemo-embolization （TACE）in breast cancer patients with liver metastases, they found that hepatic arterial chemo-embolization can be used as an independent and effective treatment method to prolong the survival time of breast cancer patients with liver metastases... ...Interpretation by Specialist Wang Ronghua
Wang Ronghua explained that the efficacy of chemo medicine relies on not only the pharmacological effects of drugs and the patient’s sensitivity, but also the drug concentration in the lesion sites and total reaction time. Also, different routes of drugs administration play an important role. In the past, the main administration mode of chemo drugs is intravenously or orally given.By which, the drugs are fully diluted and mixed with protein after systemic circulation. So when it finally arrival at the targeted organ, the effects of medicine ... ...

According to a latest research by ASCO in 2013, radiofrequency ablation (RFA) therapy has very good effect in treating liver cancer, but patients’ own immunity suppression is still a factor that may cause high risk of reoccurrence and metastasis. However it is found in the research that if patients receive cellular immunotherapy after the RFA therapy, their treatment can be obviously more effective and safer with distinct lower risk of reoccurrence and metastasis.During this research, 62 liver cancer patients were divided into two groups. One group only received RFA . ... ...Interpretation by Specialist Zhang Dechun
Specialist Zhang said, cellular immunotherapy is a kind of biotherapy. It has become a brand-new cancer therapy because it is safe, highly effective, minimally invasive and causes only little pain and little side effects.

A latest study published in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO for short) in year 2013 showed that adequate and safe dose of radiation of seed implantation can achieve good treatment effect for prostate cancer as well as reduce high grade toxicities. The study was conducted by Japanese Prostate Cancer Outcome Study by assessing its feature, efficacy and safety. The study was started from July 2005 and 6,972 cases were enrolled in until December 2012... ...Interpretation by Specialist Liu Yuansheng
Seed implantation for treating cancer can be traced back to the beginning of last century. In early 1909, the first case of brachytherapy (seed implantation) for prostate cancer was done in a radium radiation biology laboratory in Paris, France. In that case, the radium with cladding was inserted into patient’s prostate by a vessel. The full name of seed implantation therapy is radioactive seed implantation therapy. Its principles is that firstly calculates an appropriate beam energy and chooses appropriate seed dose according to patient’s... ...

A report from King Hussein Cancer Center(KHCC) in ASCO convention 2013 again, has proved that PET-CT scan has become a most valuable tool to greatly improve cancer treatment effect. Apart from early pathologic staging diagnosis of cancer, PET-CT is also used to evaluate post-treatment reaction and effect for further treatment instruction. For example, if a patient must to have radical treatment or palliative treatment, or how to make radiotherapy more focus on lesions. Related tests had done from Jan. 2010 to Jun.2012 by studying 40 gynecologic ... ...Interpretation by Specialist Dai Wenyan
PET-CT scan technology can diagnose tumor early and confirm tumor stage before early symptoms are detected and anatomic proof comes out, even a tumor is smaller than 2mm can be detected. What is more, PET-CT can confirm recurrent tumors, primary tumor and metastases to better provide instructions to radiotherapy and inspection of treatment effect. The principles of PET-CT scan is after radiotracer injection, PET-CT scan can construct the images of radiotracer distribution to well picture the biochemical processes of disease... ...
