Cialis in Cancer treatmentThere was a recent study with Cialis medication. In this research, it is found whether the Cialis which is the active ingredient of Cialis increases the tumor immunity in people who are suffering from head and neck cancers or not. In this blog, we are going to know about the result of this study in detail.

Cialis given before the surgery

This study was done on patients who were heading to a surgery. These patients were divided into three groups. First group was given Cialis tablet with the dosage strength of 10mg. Second group were given with Cialis pills with the dosage strength of 20mg and third group of patients were given with placebo tablets. All these patients were provided with the tablets on a regular basis without fail.

What happens when Cialis is taken by patients with Cancer?

When Cialis is taken, it does not target the cancer cells directly instead would block the effects of MDSC (myeloid-derived-suppressor-cells) and T-cells. These are the cells that would destroy the immune system against cancer.

In case a person is affected by tumor, the natural defense would attack the tumor cells when they are detected in the body. But, when a person is affected by head and neck cancers, it would use T-cells and MDSC and suppress the immune system.

So, when Cialis reduces the effect of these tumor cells in the body, it would help the immune system to work better.

What is the result of this research with Cialis?

The blood and tumor levels of the patient are evaluated before and after the surgery. So let us now look at the result. The patients who took this medication tolerated very much well compared to the ones who took placebo pills. The tumor cells were reduced to the greater extent. Not only these decrease the tumor cells but the surprising factor is that it increased CD8+T-cells also. These cells would be present in the front line of defense in the immune system when it attacks the cancer cells. Those who took placebo medication have higher chance of getting back this type of cancer than those who take Cialis.

Can Cialis medication be taken to improve the immunity in the patients with head and neck cancers?

The research is still going on and till now Cialis is providing better results. This medication is very popular in treating erectile dysfunction in a man. To tell in detail, taking Cialis pills have benefitted millions of people with impotency. But, we didn’t know that this drug also possess certain qualities that reduces the tumor cells thus increasing the efficacy of the immune system. In addition to that, taking Cialis to treat head and neck cancer were considered to be safe and secure. Though this medication is found to be very effective, it is not known whether it can be taken alone to treat this type of cancer. Probably, Cialis would be combined with immunotherapeutic treatments so that it would disable the ability of tumor so that immune system can work well.
