Krebsforschung. Hyperthermie mit Chemotherapie, by Armin Djahangir

By Armin Djahangir

Facharbeit (Schule) aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Biologie - Krankheiten, Gesundheit, Ernährung, observe: 14, , Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Inwieweit besitzen Hyperthermie und Chemotherapie, Elektrochemotherapie und Strahlentherapie Verbesserungspotential bezüglich ihrer Anwendung und Methodik beim krebskranken Patienten und wie entwickeln sich diese Sparten in der Zukunft?

Krebs stellt einen Sammelbegriff für alle bösartigen (malignen) Erkrankungen dar, welche mit unkontrolliertem, eigenständigem und gewebeschädigendem Zellwachstum (Tumorbildung) einhergehen. Griechische Mediziner entdeckten Krebsformen, die sich förmlich in das Gewebe der Patienten eingruben. Das helle, schlecht durchblutete Tumorgewebe erinnerte an den Panzer eines zum Teil im Sand vergrabenen Krebses – daher die Bezeichnung Krebs. Seit der Antike sind Krebserkrankte bekannt und noch heute mühen sich Forscher und Wissenschaftler ab, eine absolute Heilungsmethode zu finden.

In Deutschland erkranken jährlich etwa 340.000 Menschen an Krebs – andere Quellen gehen von noch höheren Zahlen (bis zu einer halben Millionen aus). Speziell Personen ab 60 Jahren zeigen eine hohe Anfälligkeit. Geschehen in einer durch Mutationen vorbelasteten Zelle (möglicherweise aufgrund von Vererbung) weitere somatische, irreversible Veränderungen, so kann die Grenze zum bösärtigen Tumor überschritten werden. Je älter ein Mensch wird, desto mehr Zeit hat ein Krebs sich zu entwickeln und Sekundärtumore zu bilden. Aufgrund der niedrigen Geburtenrate in Deutschland ist diese Tendenz stetig steigend. So prognostizieren Fachleute des Deutschen Krebshilfe e. V. bis 2050 eine Zunahme der Krebserkrankungen um 30%. 221.000 Deutsche erliegen ihrem Leiden jedes Jahr. Damit stellt Krebs neben Herz- und Kreislauferkrankungen die zweithäufigste Todesursache in der Bundesrepublik dar. Die häufigste Krebsform bei Frauen ist Brustkrebs – bei Männern Prostatakrebs. Davon sind in etwa 2/3 der Patienten intestine therapierbar.

Es gibt eine große Palette an möglichen Ursachen für eine Krebserkrankung – vieles ist jedoch noch unerforscht. Dennoch weiß guy, dass erbliche Allele sowie der Einfluss von Umwelt- und Ernährungsfaktoren eine große Rolle spielen.
Dass das Krebsthema nicht nur pessimistisch betrachtet wurde und wird, zeigen neue Erkenntnisse der letzten Jahre speziell bezüglich der genetisch-zellulären Tumorentstehung. Optimisten, wie der zwölfte Direktor des nationwide melanoma Institute – Andrew von Eschenbach, sehen eine endgültige Lösungsfindung bzw.
