This is a new way of delivering chemotherapy or targeted therapy as an alternative to conventional chemotherapy. In this modality, drugs (usually oral) are given at lower dose but at regular frequency in continuous or cyclical manner to achieve effect with reduced adverse effects.
It is usually given on outpatient basis and low-cost therapy. It is the preferred method in old or frail patients where delivering conventional chemotherapy can be difficult. It is also used in some cancers for maintenance treatment or salvage treatment.
At SOC our consultants are well trained in delivering Metronomic therapy.
