Abstract

A review articles published in reputed journals of cancer suggests that patients under combined therapy (coordination of medical/radiation oncologist & surgeon) of cancer treatment experience adverse events included constitutional symptoms, gastrointestinal complications & pain. The most common reason for withdrawal was disease progression, followed by adverse effects. Complications during cancer treatment include- complications due to disease/ treatment & psychosocial problems. Ayurvedic formulations including single drugs like Gvarras, Panchatulasiras & combination drugs like Rasayan Churna, Yastimadhu Ghrita etc. have proven to be effective medicines when given in between consecutive chemo/radiation therapies. Ayurvedic interventions with combined therapies reduce cost of treatment with decrease in relapse of disease & decreased AEs.
