CALABASAS, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 3, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Research in the field of oncology is double that of the rest of medicine combined. Each day, there are new studies and new advances in treatment.
Dr. Nader Javadi, MD is an oncologist and medical director of the Hope Health Center, an independent, private oncological clinic that specializes in Precision Oncology, the customization of cancer therapy based on an individual's specific genetic markers.
“Using these new techniques allows us to personalize therapy,” says Dr. Javadi. “For advanced cancer patients, there is only the standard therapies or clinical trials. We call this ‘the third option,’ which is not being done in any other center in the world, and we have seen miracles.”
Precision Oncology offers a new way of treating cancer, by offering access to any medication approved by FDA for any cancer for a specific genetic marker and mutation.
“We cannot treat everyone the same way,” says Dr. Javadi. “Some patients respond to classic chemotherapy better than others, but for stage IV cancer we cannot cure that disease. There is a lot of genetic variety and heterogeneity in tumor cells. That's why we have to be more specific.”
Inspired by his mother's death from ovarian cancer while still an intern, Dr. Javadi has dedicated his professional medical career to fighting cancer.
“I was rotated into an oncology unit in the 80s,” recalls Dr. Javadi. “In those days, most patients succumbed to their disease. We didn't have enough good treatments or effective therapies. We didn't know a lot about genetics. There was no immunotherapy. There was no targeted therapy. And that was something I felt was attracting me. I was looking for an opportunity to do what I thought was the best way to practice oncology: personalized therapy for each individual patient. That’s why I established the Hope Health Center.”
Throughout the course of his career, Dr. Javadi has gained expertise in several facets of oncology and hematology including genetic testing, and advanced oncology treatment. Dr. Javadi has practiced oncology for 18 years, with a great success rate in treating advanced terminal cancer patients, improving their quality of lives and survival.
“As of now precision oncology is a radical approach, but I believe the third option is the best option for advanced cancer stage,” says Dr. Javadi. “Even if you cannot get rid of the disease, perhaps we can control it to make it a chronic disease the patient can live with and not die from. The whole purpose of treating stage IV cancer now. The most important thing for me is quality of life. The first thing you want to accomplish is to remove the pain or ease it, so the patient can have a better quality of life. If we can do that, we can improve survival, too.”
CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Nader Javadi in a four-part series with Jim Masters on October 5th and October 19th at 2pm EDT and with Doug Llewelyn on October 12th and 26th at 2pm EDT.
