Team

The Clinic of Medical Oncology at Nadezhda Hospital and its specialists are partners in demand  for research teams in international clinical trials for the development of new and advanced drugs in the field of oncology. Our patients often are among the first in Bulgaria to have the opportunity to receive treatment with the newest types of drugs, even before these drugs are routinely used.

01

Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy is the use of anticancer drugs to treat cancer. It works in two ways: it stops the growth of the tumor and prevents tumor cells from spreading to other parts of the body (metastasising).

02

Hormone therapy

The term ‘hormone therapy’ has gained popularity, but in practice this type of treatment is an anti-hormone treatment and is often aimed not at stimulating, but rather suppressing the body’s hormone production. 

03

Targeted therapy

Targeted therapy is a new type of therapy on which individualized medicine is based. It is a type of anti-cancer treatment that specifically targets the changes in a cancer cell that make it grow, divide and metastasize.

04

Immunotherapy

One of the reasons cancer cells develop is that they have the ability to protect themselves from the immune system. Certain types of immunotherapy can mark cancer cells so that they become recognizable to the immune system, which then more easily detects and destroys them.

05

Clinical trials

The Clinic of Medical Oncology at Nadezhda Hospital and its specialists are sought-after partners in the research teams of international clinical trials that develop new and advanced drugs in the field of oncology. Often our patients are among the first in Bulgaria to have the opportunity to receive treatment with new types of drugs even before they are routinely used.
