Discovery Radio – Episode #52 – HIPEC: Advancement in Treating Stage-4 Abdominal Cancers

A procedure for certain stage-4 abdominal cancers, combining surgery and a specialized chemo-therapy treatment, is proving to be successful in giving patients both quantity and quality of life back.  On today’s show, learn about the procedure known as HIPEC.  We’ll also hear from someone in our community who was treated withHIPEC. And later, we’ll focus on clinical trials, as we learn how trials are carefully reviewed to assure the safety and protection of their participants. That’s all coming up inside this edition of CTSI Discovery Radio!
