  • Erasmus MC Press room: Q&A’s interactions anti-cancer drugs and other medication
    of the medication and the anti cancer medication reacting with each other However the chances of developing side effects is different for each patient and can range from being totally harmless to extremely dangerous Some patients have no problems with the combination while other patients will experience many and or serious adverse reactions Erasmus MC is currently conducting follow up research to determine whether patients receiving anti cancer therapy actually suffered adverse reactions as a result of these interactions In addition the researchers are investigating whether these interactions could be avoided by for example adjusting the medication dosage or stopping the medication Is it a problem if medication enhances the ant cancer therapy If drugs enhance the efficacy of the chemotherapy it does not necessarily mean that the battle against cancer is more effective It is true that patients are more likely to suffer side effects as a result of the slower breakdown by the body of the chemotherapy drugs This can cause patients to become more ill Why do oncologists not have an overview of all the medication received by patients The system in which the anti cancer medications are registered is not the same system in which all the other medication is listed i e the medication prescribed by other specialists or general physicians The hospital pharmacist who would normally be responsible for drug monitoring cannot immediately see which other medication a patient receives when for example chemotherapy is prescribed I currently am about to receive anti cancer medication and also take other medication What should I do If your oncologist is aware of this medication he she can anticipate adverse drug reactions as much as possible It is therefore important that you always have a list of the medication you currently use Where necessary the oncologist can adjust the chemotherapy accordingly or consult the pharmacist or other prescriber to determine whether the other medication can be temporarily stopped stopped completely or adjusted Which anti cancer drugs interact with medication Many anti cancer therapies can interact with medication but they do not all have serious effects If you are in doubt you can always contact your pharmacist for advice I take over the counter drugs rather than medication prescribed by a physician What should I do We would not recommend using medication on your own during anti cancer therapy for example chemotherapy However if you do please inform your oncologist of the exact drugs you are taking This certainly also applies to herbal or natural supplements as these can also affect the efficacy of therapy Why was this research not carried out earlier The survival rates for cancer have improved substantially over the past years Furthermore patients are becoming older and are taking more medication at the same time In the past physicians and scientific researchers used to focus on how tumors could be removed while increasing attention is now being paid to optimization of the treatment and thereby the quality of life This is why more attention

  • Erasmus MC Press room: FAQ H5N1 Bird flu virus
    can be strongly urged to contain outbreaks among poultry with a great sense of urgency The research data can be used in surveillance programs to identify outbreaks in which the likelihood of the development of transmissible viruses is greatest and take extra measures The main benefit for public health is that the emergence of a pandemic can be prevented in this way In addition it enables the researchers to better assess the effectiveness of existing vaccines and drugs for the transmissible avian flu virus as they now have a virus available for testing There was much controversy about the research was this justified In some countries such as the United States there was much commotion when it was announced that researchers had created a virus that is transmissible among mammals Initially bodies such as the American National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity NSABB did not want the researchers to publish their findings in a scientific journal They feared that villains would be receiving a recipe to reproduce the virus Virologists at Erasmus MC and many other experts considered the controversy unjustified The researchers had made no changes to the virus in their laboratories that could not also have freely occurred in nature Furthermore the virus does not appear to spread as easily through the air and was not lethal It would not be of much use to malicious individuals The researchers were adamant about publishing the results why Publication in a scientific journal meant that the data could be quickly shared with other experts making further research and good surveillance programs possible Fortunately the opponents of publication eventually saw that the virus was not as dangerous as originally thought and agreed that the benefits of publication outweighed any disadvantages This meant that the research could as yet be published in full in Science in June 2012 Why was a moratorium imposed on the research Halfway through the period of controversy at the end of January last year the researchers voluntarily decided on a self imposed 60 day moratorium This meant that they would not carry out any research in this period on the viruses they had created The pause period was imposed to give national and international governments the time to determine whether existing rules and regulations and the enforcement thereof are sufficient to safeguard the safety of people and the environment We are now a year on why was the moratorium so long In February 2012 the World Health Organization WHO asked the researchers to continue the moratorium on their research The WHO recommended that research not be resumed until the benefits of the study for public health were clearly communicated to the outside world and the relevant authorities were convinced that further research could be carried out under safe conditions Have these requirements been met Yes Once the research was published the researchers shared and discussed all the details of their research with the outside world Explanations were given to citizens as well as experts through the media
