Lymphogranulomatosis - a disease that progresses quickly, affecting internal organs and lymph nodes.Hodgkin's disease is a chronic and accompanied by the formation in the body of special cells called granulomas.It is they, developing in the lymph node, affect healthy tissue.It is important to take action as soon as possible, to maximize alleviate the disease and the treatment of Hodgkin's disease.
Lymphogranulomatosis - treatment of folk remedies
Unfortunately, today it remains the treatment of Hodgkin's disease folk remedies effective.However, there are folk remedies (including traditional medicine), which help to hinder the development of the disease, improve patient health and reduce pain in the treatment of Hodgkin's disease:
Take infusion folk remedy - birch fungus fungus.Soak the dried mushrooms in cold boiled water for 4 hours, then rub it on a grater.Mass Pour hot boiled water (temperature less than 50 degrees) in a ratio of 1: 5.After 2 days, the infusion should be strain and take 7
Take a folk remedy - tincture of calendula.2 tablespoons shredded flowers to pour 1 cup boiling water and infuse in a sealed container for about 30 minutes.During the day, you need to use the drink in small sips in between meals for the treatment of granulomatosis.
If you do not know how to treat Hodgkin folk remedies, using beet juice, which promotes cell regeneration.Press the juice from 1 kg of beets and soak in the refrigerator in a sealed container 4-5 hours.Means for taking a 0.6 liter 5-6 times a day in equal portions.To enhance the therapeutic effect can be consumed 200 grams of boiled beets per day.
Polychemotherapy for the treatment of Hodgkin's disease
type of chemotherapy and its amount depend on the stage of Hodgkin's disease.Factors of poor prognosis include older age, male sex, massive lesions (greater than 10 cm), lymph nodes below the diaphragm, erythrocyte sedimentation rate 30 mm / h, leukocytosis with lymphopenia, anemia.Currently used criteria Hasenklevera-Diehl, they include:
- albumin concentration of less than 4 g / L;
- hemoglobin concentration of less than 105 g / l;
- male sex;
- IV stage of the disease;
- age over 45 years;
- leukocytosis more than 16 109 / L;
- lymphopenia of less than 0.6 to 109 / l (or less than 8%).
When 1-III stages of Hodgkin's disease is carried out 6 courses of ABVD chemotherapy for the scheme in combination with radiation therapy.Scheme ABVD: in the 1st and 14th days is administered doxorubicin (adriamycin) 25 mg / m2 / w, bleomycin 10 mg / m2 / w, vinblastine 6 mg / m2 / w, Dacarbazine 375 mg / m2 /at.
mediastinal ultrasound performed after each course of chemotherapy, chest X-rays - after II, IV and VI courses.After the IV year of chemotherapy conducted "Restaging" (check-up) - a complete re-examination of the patient to clarify the residual tumor size and assessing the effectiveness of the therapy.
the presence of 3 or more prognostic indicators prescribed therapy according to the program BEACOPP cyclophosphamide 650 mg / m2 / in 1 day, doxorubicin (adriamycin) 25 mg / m2 / in 1 day, etoposide 100 mg /m2 / in 1-3 th days, procarbazine (natulan) 100 mg / m2 orally on days 1-7, prednisolone 40 mg / m2 orally 1 -14 th days, vincristine 1.4 mg / m2but not more than 2 mg / in the 8th day, bleomycin 10 mg / m2 in / on the 8th day.New courses start on the 22th day.Courses of treatment should be performed in a hospital since the drugs used have a significant myelotoxicity.
When prognostically poor course of disease treatment is carried out by the strengthened Protocol BEACOPP: cyclophosphamide 1250 mg / m2 / per 1 day, doxorubicin 35 mg / m2 / per 1 day, etoposide 200 mg / m2 / in1-3 th days, procarbazine (natulan) 100 mg / m2 orally on days 1-7, prednisolone 40 mg / day orally on days 1-14, vincristine 2 mg / in the 8th day, bleomycin 10 mg / m2 in / on the 8th day.Used drugs have a significant myelotoxicity, so it is necessary to appoint a granulocyte or granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (lenograstim (Granocyte), filgrastim (Neupogen), molgramostim (leykomaks)).
With the progression of the disease during treatment or in the absence of positive dynamics of the patient is transferred to a more intensive therapy with lomustine (belustin), etoposide, melphalan, cytarabine, platinum drugs, large doses of dexamethasone.After chemotherapy before radiation therapy is carried out follow-up examination.
monochemotherapy for the treatment of Hodgkin's disease
monochemotherapy - palliative care for frail elderly patients, as well as in cases where the possibility of chemotherapy can be considered exhausted.Apply any of anticancer drugs included in the treatment of Hodgkin's disease scheme (e.g., vincristine, vinblastine, chlorambucil (hlorbutin), gemcitabine).
