Chemotherapy is a form of systemic treatment where drugs
acting against cancer cells are given, in an injectable or oral form, to destroy cancer cells in the primary tumour and also the cancer cells that have
spread throughout the body (metastases).
We at Kauvery Cancer Centre have medical oncologists experienced in delivering
chemotherapy at the appropriate doses with least adverse effects to treat both solid tumours as well as leukaemias and lymphomas. Supported by our
experienced pathologists, and the recent advances in molecular oncology along with genetic mutation studies, we are moving towards patient tailored
therapy where, based on driver mutations, targeted therapies like monoclonal antibodies and immunotherapies are often used appropriately to provide
improved clinical outcome in many patients, thus avoiding side effects of chemotherapy whenever possible.
