Neues aus der Forschung

Misteltherapie in Ergänzung zur Standard-Immunbehandlung bei Patienten mit nicht-kleinzelligem Lungenkrebs weist auf verbesserte Überlebensrate hin
Die Immuntherapie mit PD-1/PD-L1-Inhibitoren hat die Überlebensraten von Patienten mit nicht-kleinzelligem Lungenkrebs (NSCLC) erheblich verbessert. Die Ergebnisse einer Studie mit realen Daten (RWD), in der die zusätzliche Gabe von Viscum album L. (VA) zur Chemotherapie untersucht wurde, haben einen Zusammenhang mit dem verbesserten Überleben von Patienten mit NSCLC gezeigt - und zwar unabhängig von Alter, Metastasierungsgrad, Leistungsstatus, Lebensstil oder onkologischer Behandlung. Zu den Mechanismen gehören möglicherweise synergistische Modulationen der Immunantwort durch PD-1/PD-L1-Inhibitoren und VA. Diese Ergebnisse weisen auf die klinische Bedeutung einer zusätzlichen VA-Therapie hin; sie besitzen jedoch naturgemäss Limitationen, da es sich um eine nicht-randomisierte Beobachtungsstudie handelt. Die Studie ist in Cancers frei zugänglich publiziert:
