Regional chemotherapy

A particular focus is placed on the treatment of advanced cancer diseases. Often, metastases of an organ cancer, whether it has already been removed and the metastases occur later, or whether the metastases are present at the initial diagnosis, significantly deteriorate life expectancy and, above all, quality of life. Systemic chemotherapy and immunotherapy administered intravenously sometimes fail to have an effect.

In such cases, a method developed in part by Prof. Karl Aigner can inhibit cancer growth. This method, called 'regional chemotherapy,' has the major advantage of administering the chemotherapeutic agent directly into the tumor area via an artery that supplies the tumor, and then removing it largely from the circulation through blood washing. This results in better tolerability with fewer side effects, while maintaining a high concentration of the cancer drug in the tumor or metastases.
