Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is a rare form of adenocarcinoma, a type of cancer that begins in glandular tissues . It most commonly arises in the major and minor salivary glands of the head and neck. It can also occur in the breast, uterus, or other locations in the body.
Adrenal cancer is a rare cancer that begins in one or both of the small, triangular glands (adrenal glands) located on top of your kidneys. Adrenal glands produce hormones that give instructions to virtually every organ and tissue in your body. Adrenal cancer, also called adrenocortical cancer, can occur at any age
Anal cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the anus. Most anal cancers are related to human papillomavirus (HPV) infection.
The appendix is a pouch-like tube that is attached to the cecum, which is the first section of the large intestine or colon. Appendix cancer is sometimes called appendiceal cancer. It occurs when healthy cells become abnormal and grow rapidly. These cancerous cells become a mass or tumor inside the appendix.
A cancer in the slender tubes that carry bile, the digestive fluid, through the liver. It's a rare but aggressive form of cancer. Symptoms include yellow skin and eyes (jaundice), intensely itchy skin and stool that's white in colour.
Bladder cancer is a common type of cancer that begins in the cells of the bladder. The bladder is a hollow muscular organ in your lower abdomen that stores urine.
Bone cancer can begin in any bone in the body, but it most commonly affects the pelvis or the long bones in the arms and legs. Bone cancer is rare, making up less than 1 percent of all cancers. In fact, noncancerous bone tumors are much more common than cancerous ones.
A brain tumor is a mass or growth of abnormal cells in your brain.
Breast cancer is cancer that forms in the cells of the breasts.

Continuous research on the biology of cancer has led to some new types of targeted treatments and novel therapeutic approaches. At ACTC, we incorporate these advances into our treatment plans, along with optimal dosing and strategic scheduling to deliver effective outcomes with minimal adverse effects.
Some of the advances in Cancer Therapy include :
1. Targeted therapy :
Targeted Therapy uses drugs to target specific mutations or alterations inside the cancer cell. It is either targeted towards the tissue environment that is helping in the grown the survival of cancer or the target cells related to cancer growth, like blood vessel cells.
In the human body, there are many different types of cells that make up various tissues. Each cell has a job of its own. However, when these healthy cells change or mutate over time, cancer occurs. This change is called a genetic mutation.
Targeted therapy uses drugs to target the specific mutations or alterations in cells. In order to develop targeted therapies, our team identifies the genetic changes that are present and develops treatment plans to target each specific area.
Targeted therapy can:
The body's immune system consists of a complex process your body uses to fight illness, with the help of our cells, organs, and proteins. Cancer can commonly get around many of the immune system’s natural defenses, allowing cancer cells to continue to grow.
In Immunotherapy, substances that are made by the body to fight immunity are made in the laboratory to boost the body’s natural defenses to fight cancer.
Different types of immunotherapy work in different ways. Some immunotherapy treatments help the immune system stop or slow the growth of cancer cells. Others help the immune system destroy cancer cells or stop the cancer from spreading to other parts of the body. Immunotherapy treatments can be used alone, or they can be combined with other cancer treatments.
There are many types of immunotherapy. They include:
