Research Underway

Types of treatment currently being studied include:

  • We are studying angiogenesis inhibitors, substances that may be able to prevent the growth of tumors.
  • We are also studying biological therapies, a wide range of substances that may be able to involve the body's own immune system to fight cancer or lessen harmful side effects of some treatments.
  • Researchers are looking into neoadjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy, treatments using chemotherapy and radiotherapy before resecting the primary tumor are being investigated.
