How to battle chemotherapy-induced tumor growth

In the aftermath of conventional chemotherapy treatment, dead and dying cancer cells have been found to release debris triggering inflammation that leads to further tumor growth. But researchers from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center studying this process in the treatment of ovarian cancer are working on an anti-inflammatory drug to block the release of the compounds that promote tumor survival following traditional chemotherapy. While the further research is needed, the hope is to provide a therapeutic modality that may compliment conventional cancer treatment by acting as a surge protector against chemotherapy-induced tumor growth.
