What are the advantages of doing a chemo sensitivity test before your IPTLD treatment?

The chemosensitivity test  provides information and guidance about the drugs that may be suited to the individual in a clinical practice. Standard oncology rely on the statistical analysis of a large treatment trials to decide which drugs to use for specific cancers. Doing the chemrsensitivity testing involves testing an individual cancer cells in the laboratory to see which drugs and which natural substances demonstrate the best response. A similar test is used to find which antibiotic is the right one to use for a particular type of bacteria causing an infection and which is antibiotic is already resistant.

Circulating tumor cells are the one that have detached from the primary tumor and flow into the blood or lymphatic circulation creating a secondary tumor. Despite their rare population, these cells exhibit metastatic attributes and are related to cancer progression. These cells can be isolated and identified for the following purposes:

1- early detection and diagnosis of new cancers
2- monitoring existing cancers
3- prognosis by providing information about the risk of recurrence of a current or old cancer.

If you have cancer this test, that helps for the molecular detection of disseminated cancer cells in the blood stream allow for the identification of a probable high risk of relapse. This test also determine the therapies most likely to be effective against your type of cancer and provides a molecular analyses for the expression of drug targets and chemo-resistance markers in the tumor cells. The test is performed by drawing blood from the patient.
The test is carried out by a few Laboratories in the world (BIOFOCUS, Germany; RGCC GROUP, Greece; LYMPHOCITE, Mexico) all providing a useful information for the selection of drugs that will have the best result for the specific cancer cell type.

 My pilgrimage with lymphoma I started in 2010 when I was 45 years old, married with children. In that period from 2010 to 2012, I was treat...
