The effectiveness of chemotherapy is often limited due to the poor oxygenation of tumors (this is known as hypoxia) as well as to increased or decreased activity of specific signaling pathways that help cancer cells survive this cytotoxic treatment. Also, toxicity to normal tissues often limits the doses of chemotherapy that can safely be administered.
Oasis of Hope treatments address these issues by boosting the oxygen content of tumors – with Hyperbaric Oxygen and Trental (Pentoxifylline) – and by blocking or activating signaling pathways that promote cancer survival with nutraceuticals. At the same time, toxicity to normal tissues is alleviated through use of oxidative preconditioning and administration of agents such as melatonin and glutamine.
