INTRAVENOUS ONCOLOGICAL TREATMENTS

At Institut Khuab we are referents in the use of natural oncological intravenous treatments (Vitamin C, Curcumin, Lipoic Acid and others) with proven scientific evidence on its anti-tumor effectiveness and on improving the quality of life of patients. This evidence derives from scientific publications available in medical databases regarding their mechanisms of action, anti-tumor effects, possible synergies with other conventional treatments, adverse effects and interactions… Khuab’s doctors have long experience in the use of these complementary treatments, which alone or in combination with other conventional oncological treatments, provide an anti-tumor effect without adding toxicity, and which, associated with other detoxifying products, are very useful for controlling the toxicity derived from chemo or radiotherapy treatments and to improve the patient own response. The administration of these intravenous treatments is usually very well tolerated by patients and does not usually lead to major side effects.

DEEP LOCAL TUMOR HYPERTHERMIA

Deep local tumor hyperthermia is a technique to treat solid tumors by raising the temperature over the area of the tumor lesion with a German device of high reliability and effectiveness called CELSIUS42. The application of heat generated by an electric field on the tumor area has a proper anti-tumor effect at the same time that it generates an immune-modulation effect and sensitizes the tumor cells, which, weakened, are more easily destroyed by other agents such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy. For this reason, the main indication for treatment with hyperthermia is its use in combination with other oncological treatments since it increases its effectiveness. Institut Khuab is a pioneer and reference in the use of this treatment in Catalonia and Spain, and we work daily to advance clinical research on the use of hyperthermia in oncology.

FUS-HIFU ULTRASOUND TUMOR ABLATIONS

Tumor ablation by high intensity focused ultrasound (FUS-HIFU) is a non-invasive technique that allows to destroy both primary and metastatic solid tumor lesions in certain tissues by means of an ultrasound beam guided and controlled by ultrasound image. With this technique we can perform a worldwide pioneer adjuvant treatment in patients who are not candidates for conventional surgery because of the location of the tumor or because of its clinical conditions. The main advantage of this procedure is the excellent tolerance and low risk of complications compared to conventional surgery, allowing rapid recovery of the patient. It is an especially useful procedure to treat pancreatic tumors (although also hepatic, renal and other soft tissue tumors), with which we have obtained excellent clinical results in combination with chemotherapy. Dr.Vidal-Jové is one of the world experts in the application of these procedures in the field of oncology and has published scientific articles where the hopeful results obtained with this technique are exposed. We use the facilities of the Mutua-Terrassa University Hospital to perform FUS-HIFU ultrasound ablations.

MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY

Dr.Vidal-Jové is a surgical oncologist trained and specialized at The Cancer Institute, Washington Hospital Center, George Washington University. He has a long surgical experience in the field of oncology and applies his experience in cases that require surgery. We use the hospital facilities of the Diagonal Clinic in Barcelona to perform surgical procedures.

IMMUNOMODULATION TREATMENTS

The immune system plays a key role in both the development of the tumor disease and its treatment. Optimizing immune response and function through different natural products derived from plants and fungi with recognized immune-modulatory activity can make a difference in the clinical evolution of patients.

PERSONALIZED NUTRITION

We know the importance that an individual’s eating pattern over time can have on the development of cancer, and there is increasing scientific evidence on how nutritional interventions may promote the effectiveness of conventional oncological treatments, such as the supply of certain nutrients can prevent the weight loss of our patients (which as we know is a factor of poor prognosis in the evolution of the disease), how to eat consciously and healthy is essential in the prevention of cancer and its relapses, the relationship between the balance of the intestinal flora and the function of the immune system. Each patient is unique, and throughout the oncological disease it goes through different situations that usually require different nutritional actions, for this reason, at Institut Khuab we believe in the importance of personalized nutritional advice. We use multiple nutritional resources according to medical criteria to obtain the maximum benefit from the nutritional intervention on our patients.

PSICO-EMOTIONAL SUPPORT

Emotions, our understanding of life, how and with whom we relate, how we manage stressful life factors, how we organize our mental processes … has an impact on our health. Professionals at Institut Khuab have long experience in dealing with cancer patients and know that from diagnosis to the moment of the outcome patients may need specific psycho-emotional support. In the same way, we have seen on multiple occasions, how traumas or conflicts experienced by the patient may be related in the development of the disease. Giving tools to patients so that they can better manage and resolve certain conflicts or attitudes has an impact on their evolution, in the prevention of relapses and even in the response to treatments.
