Burden, T. Wandi, D. Dabbs, K. In: Thesis. Sethi, S. In these cases, cancerous cells are removed from the bladder wall, and the bladder is filled with a BCG solution. This solution produces an immune response that destroys cancer cells. BCG is an extremely effective agent for keeping the cancer from spreading or returning. The success rate for this type of immunotherapy is above 70 percent. In rare or advanced stages of bladder cancer, immunotherapy may be also recommended as a clinical trial. We are passionate about discovering and offering novel trial opportunities that can't be found at any other comprehensive cancer center.
We offer a wide range of clinical trials of new treatments for all stages of bladder cancer. For some patients with advanced bladder cancer, taking part in a clinical trial is the best treatment option. While there are opportunities for clinical trials at early and late stages of the disease, they are most often suggested for advanced stages of bladder cancer.
Stage 0 Overview
However, our researchers are committed to creating trials for all stages of bladder cancer. We are especially dedicated to creating immunotherapy trial options and investigating targeted therapies. If you qualify for a clinical trial, your doctor will thoroughly review all options with you, and will recommend the best time to begin a trial before, during, or after cancer treatment.
Clinical trials are part of the cancer research process; they are safe and regulated research studies to determine if new cancer treatments are effective, or better than a current plan. Not only can trials lead to new discoveries and improve cancer care, but they can also have life-saving benefits. Clinical trials may include biologic therapies, or treatments that use the patient's immune system to fight the cancer immunotherapy or biotherapy.
Trials also include targeted therapy or therapies using drugs to identify and attack the specific bladder cancer cells without harming healthy cells. Detailed information about clinical trials is available from the NCI Web site. For nationally run clinical trials, please visit ClinicalTrials. If your doctor suggests a clinical trial as part of your cancer treatment, you may have questions before you get started.
Review some commonly asked questions about clinical trials and discuss them with your doctor. Our radiation oncology team is highly skilled in treating unusual and complex cases. Team members have extensive experience treating recurrent bladder cancer with radiation therapy. Radiation may be used to treat certain bladder cancer patients, but it is not recommended for most patients, as bladder cancer often requires many radiation treatments. Radiation therapy is most common for stage II cases of bladder cancer where the cancer has invaded the muscle, but not spread.
This type of therapy, in combination with chemotherapy, may be an alternative to surgery for certain patients. When appropriate, radiation may be used to relieve symptoms and improve quality of life.
Diagnosis and Pathology of Bladder Cancer
Our radiation oncologists deliver the most advanced radiation treatments for bladder cancer, including 3D imaging radiation therapy, also called intensity-modulated radiation therapy IMRT. IMRT uses computer images to find and target the cancerous tumor, carefully firing thin beams of radiation at the tumor from different angles. This reduces the damage to the surrounding healthy tissue. All bladder cancer patients requiring radiation therapy will be cared for in an innovative operating and research environment developed at Brigham and Women's Hospital BWH in Called the Advanced Multimodality Image Guided Operating AMIGO Suite , our team of surgeons, interventional radiologists, imaging physicists, computer scientists, biomedical engineers, nurses, and technologists use the latest imaging tools to develop and deliver the safest, state-of-the-art therapies.
