Russian doctors began to treat patients with oncology with an innovative method based on the principles of stereotactic radiation therapy, NEWS reported. In some cases, this method can completely replace standard chemotherapy.
It is noted that this method is used in combination with targeted therapy or immunotherapy. The treatment takes place due to a large dose of ionizing radiation. It destroys the genetic material of tumor cells and inhibits their growth, which ultimately leads to the death of the tumor. This is equivalent to surgical removal, that is why this method is especially effective against local formations without metastases.
