Bone is a common site for metastasis. Bone metastasis arises when cancer cells from the primary tumor relocate to the bone. Prostate, breast, and lung cancers are most likely to spread to the bone. Pain is the most common symptom that has been noticed by the patients. Pain is most often felt at the site of the metastasis, which is referred to as localized pain.
Current treatments for bone metastasis include medications, radiation therapy, and surgery. Medications used in people with bone metastasis include bone-building medications, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, pain medications, steroids, and targeted therapy. For instance, breast cancer cells that are HER2 positive respond to trastuzumab (Herceptin) therapy.
Research Institutes and pharmaceutical companies are focusing on studying and developing new methods for the treatment of bone metastasis. For instance; I-131-1095, which is being studied by the Progenics Pharmaceuticals, Inc., is currently in phase-2 clinical trials for the study of I-131-1095 radiotherapy in combination with enzalutamide in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer.
