Institute for the Early Detection and Treatment of Cancer

The Anderson Cancer Center actively disseminates information about what kind of lifestyle should be followed if one has a predisposition to cancer.
For 72 years of its existence, the Center has already helped a million of its patients to cope with this disease.
The Anderson Cancer Center has established the Institute for Early Cancer Detection and Therapy, consisting of:
Center for Genomics (you can get a detailed analysis of the genetic code and find out the predisposition for oncology);
Center for Proteomics (a promising approach for the discovery of new tumor markers that can improve the effectiveness of ongoing therapy);
Center for Diagnostic Imaging (obtaining images of the internal organs and tissues of the body — the first method of diagnosing cancer at an early stage);
Center for Pharmacology (development of new drugs against tumors);
Center for Immunology (a new way to destroy malignant tumors: activate the body's immune system in recognizing tumors and fighting them);
Research Center for Metastasis and Molecular markers (predicting the course of oncology, the spread of cancer cells).

Treatment at MD Anderson Cancer Center

The MD Anderson Cancer Center uses modern oncology treatment methods that have proven effectiveness. Doctors use both well-known methods and the latest developments. The program can combine several types of treatment at the same time. The choice of method depends on the results of complex diagnostics, the final diagnosis, the characteristics of the patient (age, comorbidities, use of primary therapy, etc.).

Surgical Treatment of Cancer

Surgical intervention remains the main and one of the most effective methods of combating oncology. At the Anderson Cancer Center, minimally invasive operations are more often performed, in order to minimize soft tissue injury and eliminate postoperative complications.
The Anderson Cancer Center has a specialized Da Vinci robotic system that performs operations with high precision. Also, the robot allows to avoid the human factor in the course of the operation and perform manipulations in the most inaccessible places. The doctor performing the surgery observes the operation on the monitor with an enlarged image. The Da Vinci robot reduces the risk of infection, surgical incision and bleeding; it works with the smallest structures, such blood vessels and nerves.

Radiation Therapy for Cancer

Лучевая терапия в онкологическом центре Андерсона
The rehabilitation period after receiving radiation therapy at the Anderson Center is much shorter than after radiation therapy in their home country.
The destruction of malignant tumors is performed with the help of radiation therapy, namely directed radiation.
The technique is used both before surgery, to reduce the tumor, and after it, to reduce the risk of metastases. The center uses modern equipment that purposefully affects malignant cells and causes minimal harm to healthy body tissues.

The following methods for treatment are used:
  • stereotaxic surgery (a high dose of radiation is used to destroy cancer cells that are localized in hard-to-reach places, such as brain, head and neck, liver, pancreas, kidneys, lungs, prostate and spine);
  • intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), when the tumor is irradiated from different sides so that the dose destroys the formation, while sparing borderline healthy tissues and organs as much as possible;
  • volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), when radiation dose maximally corresponds to the shape of the neoplasm, increasing the effectiveness of the impact on the malignant tumor, and the load on the tissues around it is minimal;
  • hypofractionated radiation therapy (a new method of remote radiation therapy, during which the neoplasm is irradiated with an increased dose of radiation with high accuracy, which also minimally affects healthy tissues);
  • contact radiation therapy (a radiation substance is administered intravenously, which affects only diseased cells, destroying them).

Chemotherapy of Cancer




Another effective method that suppresses the growth and development of malignant tumors is chemotherapy. Previously, it was used and affected the entire body as a whole, causing side effects.
However, MD Anderson Cancer Center is creating new and improving existing chemotherapy drugs to minimize side effects. It is used both as an auxiliary method of fighting cancer, and as the main method, for example, in leukemia. Medicines are selected on an individual basis according to the results of diagnostics, the type and stage of the tumor and the characteristics of the body. The dose of the drug and the duration of the course depend on these factors.

Targeted therapy

Таргетная терапия в онкологическом центре Андерсона



This is a type of chemotherapy that targets specific substances in cancer cells that distinguish them from healthy tissue. Some targeted drugs turn off the chemical signals needed for cancer cells to divide and grow. The rest stop the growth of blood vessels that feed the neoplasm. Other drugs penetrate the cancer cells and destroy them from the inside.

Hormone therapy



A narrowly focused method that arose as a result of hormonal disorders. Thus, often tumors develop due to certain hormones. In women it is breast and ovarian cancer, and in men it is prostate cancer. Oncologists prescribe drugs that suppress the production of certain hormones in the body. In such cases, hormone therapy gives a good result. The MD Anderson Cancer Center uses high-quality drugs that have a minimal effect on the body. Doctors prescribe hormone blockers after receiving tests that the formation is really hormone-dependent.

Immunotherapy

Иммунная терапия в онкологическом центре Андерсона
A new methods of cancer treatment stimulates the immune system, causing it to attack malignant tumors. Components of the immune system (interferons), or drugs that recognize diseased cells are used; they destroy cancer cells with high precision.
The MD Anderson Cancer Center uses immunotherapy both in combination with other therapies and as an independent way to fight tumors. It should be noted that this method gives a positive result only in certain types of cancer.
Doctors are actively researching and creating oncolytic viruses that infect and destroy neoplasms.

Photodynamic therapy

The newest method of treatment with drugs that make malignant cells hypersensitive to light. A photosensitizer (a special substance that makes tissues sensitive to sunlight) is injected into the patient's blood. The drug was designed so that its molecules accumulate mostly in malignant neoplasms. When these areas are exposed to laser radiation, the cells are destroyed. At the same time, healthy tissues receive minimal damage. The therapy is used for treatment for cancer of the stomach, lungs, skin, esophagus, bladder, cervix, both at the very beginning of the disease, and in the later stages, when it is not possible to perform a surgery. At the MD Anderson Center, this method is actively used during surgeries as well, to prevent recurrence in various parts of the body, such as the abdominal or pleural cavities.

Costs of Treatment at the MD Anderson Cancer Center

Treatment at the MD Anderson Cancer Center is pricey. Choosing this option, the patients must understand that the cost will be much higher than in any other clinic in the world. However, the quality of treatment, the experience of doctors, the level of diagnostics and treatment are also at the highest level.
It should be remembered that the final price depends on many factors: type and stage of the disease, age, gender, etc.

The price includes diagnostics, treatment (all types), consumables, medications, medical staff services and inpatient stay at University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center.

The price includes the maximum number of manipulations and procedures, as well as the services of an interpreter-coordinator, airport-hotel and hotel-airport transfers, visa support, maintaining contact with the attending physician at the end of the medical program, a personal service manager from UNICLINICS for the entire stay at the oncology center 24/7, as well as providing prescriptions for the purchase of original medications after the end of the program, consultations of related specialists and much more.

Diagnostics at the MD Anderson Cancer Center

Diagnostics at the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center is performed with the help of on high-tech equipment that accurately determines the type, size and location of a malignant tumor. Timely and precise diagnostics helps to treat cancer as quickly and successfully as possible.

The main methods of diagnostics of oncological diseases:
laboratory blood tests (general blood count, biochemistry, coagulation test, tumor markers, and others);
ultrasound examination (with certain localizations of tumors, it detects the germination of malignant cells in the fiber or surrounding organs);
x-ray studies (performed if increased image clarity is needed; a non-absorbable x-ray contrast agent is first introduced into the tissues);
computed tomography (the main diagnostic method: layer-by-layer scanning allows to detect the disease in the early stages and start the treatment as soon as possible);
positron emission tomography (with a high degree of certainty establishes the presence of a malignant tumor 4–5 mm in size);
biopsy (surgical procedure in which a small sample of tissue is taken from the affected areas; it helps to determine the type of oncology);
endoscopy (reveals neoplasms of a different nature at the initial stage, precancerous tissue changes, side effects of procedures).
