The most significant social challenge now is oncological pathology. Actually, no nation in the world has this issue if it isn't already the worst. Due to flaws in diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, patients with neoplasms have a high mortality rate. There are numerous instances of patients seeking medical attention accidentally discovering tumours. Inadequate therapy techniques include ones that, despite being thought to be radical, have a lethal effect on patients.

Current cancer therapies

Radiation therapy, chemotherapy treatment, and surgery make up the three basic types of oncology care. [1] Each one has certain rules, and oncologists typically combine them. Chemotherapy just found a new use. This technique is frequently used as adjuvant therapy in conjunction with surgery to remove any metastases that were left behind. One side effect of chemotherapeutic medication injection into the bloodstream is their extensive diffusion and interaction with both solid tumour and metastases [2]. He spread of cytostatic medications, however, is accompanied by adverse effects when both tumour and non-tumor cells are eliminated, such as stem cells, which have a strong proliferating potential.

When receiving systemic or liver-directed therapy, patients with resectable and non-resectable diseases who had radiographic response rates of CRLM had higher disease-free and overall survival. A full radiographic response (i.e., disappearing liver metastases following medication) in individuals who have a Pathologic Complete Response (PCR), which ranges from 24%-96%(median 77.5%) but is still undetectable with intraoperative ultrasonography. Furthermore, resectable cancer patients who underwent treatment and transitioned from having untreatable disease to resectable disease had better survival rates than patients who did not exhibit a radiological response and remained untreatable [3]. A prognostic value for overall survival is also provided by the CRLM histological growth patterns that were investigated following resection. Additionally, oncologists use gene engineering, immunotherapy, targeted therapy, and hormone therapy. These methods have limited use in oncology and haven't yet demonstrated their potential [4]. The authors focused on the negative effects of chemotherapy while selecting one of the most challenging oncological diseases. The cost of creating a novel medicine with a targeted antitumor effect is very significant. Such technologies are only accessible in a few nations, which ultimately raises the cost of cytostatic medications. Therefore, we have a high-cost development process for costly chemotherapeutic medicines, which will also have side effects that affect patients' functioning states for somatic, autonomic, and psychological processes [5]. The existence of this flawed condition encourages research into novel alternative therapies. Chemotherapy side effects can be reduced in a number of ways. One of them is a treatment regimen that combines the three primary treatment modalities of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Another approach is to combine chemotherapy with methods designed to alter immune system activity; occasionally, doing so boosts the treatment's efficacy. Researchers now concentrate their efforts on nanoparticles, though, due to limited effectiveness. Researchers are attempting to employ nanoparticles as powerful anticancer agents. However, these technologies no longer demonstrate their high efficacy.

Reducing the negative effects of chemotherapy

Recently, a number of studies that use alternative approaches to solving socially significant problems have been published. The dose of chemotherapeutic drugs can be reduced when combined with nanoparticles and heterocyclic chemicals, according to experimental research on linear animals habituated to the growth of tumors and in vitro studies. How might heterocycles and nanoparticles help to reduce the negative effects of chemotherapy? The key benefit of this technology is that the added anticancer activity of nanoparticles and heterocycles does not improve the effectiveness of cytostatic medicines. The goal is to find such combinations that will allow a ten- or even hundred-fold reduction in the prescribed dose while maintaining effectiveness. The initial research conducted to confirm the aforementioned idea produced astounding findings. Gradually, evidence has accumulated demonstrating the actuality of dose reduction by 10 times-100 times when chemotherapeutic drugs are combined with fullerenes and dendrimers. It is crucial that the fullerene and dendrimer dosages have been selected to prevent any anticancer effects when administered alone. We therefore talk for nanoparticles and heterocyclic chemicals that neither have an anticancer impact nor negative side effects. Specifically, those that have no negative impacts on either tumour or nontumor cells have been selected.


What potential does a new technology like this have? When used in conjunction with heterocyclic compounds and nanoparticles, several chemotherapeutic medicines that are employed below the levels advised by international regulations are given new therapeutic options. These methods are economical. But it's crucial for patients that this strategy also results in a decrease in adverse effects.
