Biological infusions are a type of treatment commonly used in cancer therapy.
They involve the administration of biological agents, such as monoclonal antibodies or immune checkpoint inhibitors, through intravenous infusion. These agents are designed to target specific molecules or pathways involved in cancer growth and spread.
Biological infusion therapy can be used in cancer therapy in many ways. For example, accompanying radiotheraphy, chemotherapy, after surgery but also for the complete treatment of tumor diseases. The necessary regeneration of the body is supported by the special complex of active ingredients.
The specific choice of biological infusion will depend on the type and stage of cancer, as well as individual patient factors.
For the infusion therapy at Pallas Clinic we use various biological drugs:
- High-dose vitamin C
- Extracts from the incense bush boswelia acids
- Extracts from ginger (such as 6-shagoal)
Before undergoing infusion therapy, it's important to ask your doctor or healthcare provider several questions to ensure that you are well-prepared and that the procedure goes smoothly.
Here are some questions you might consider asking:
