Biotherapy and corticosteroids

Medicinal maggots, leeches and microbes save lives and limbs every day! Bee venom therapy and helminthic therapy are helping patients and therapists manage previously "unmanageable" immune systems. Service animals and hippotherapy help the disabled adapt and thrive, despite life's challenges. The list of medicinal animals continues to expand, as we learn more about the world around us. Through it all, the BTER Foundation is making biotherapy more available to those who could benefit from it , by subsidizing the costs of treatment for patients who can not afford it, by developing educational programs to train therapists in the use of biotherapeutic methods, by developing treatment standards that optimize the effectiveness and safety of each method, and by helping to advance our understanding of biotherapeutic medicine through policy development and scientific research.

Richard has been a serious and brittle Type 1 Diabetic since 1976, treated with insulin injections and then an insulin pump. He suffered from a substantial number of hypoglycaemic reactions and comas, and from a range of complications associated with Type 1 Diabetes. Between September 2004 and January 2005, he received three Islet Cell Transplants at King's College Hospital, in the care of a team lead by Professors Stephanie Amiel and Nigel Heaton. From this amazing research project, he became the first Type 1 Diabetic in the UK to be able to stop taking insulin.

Therapeutic (subthreshold) electrical stimulation (TES) involves giving small electrical shocks to the skin overlying selected muscles, usually those that work opposite muscles affected by spasticity. TES is often delivered when the child is asleep and aims to strengthen the stimulated antagonist muscles in an attempt to balance out the spasticity. TES was studied in a randomized cross-over study in Norway to measure whether it improved leg function in CP children with spastic diplegia. The study showed no benefit from TES in any objective, measurable index of muscle strength or walking capacity ( Sommerfelt et al. 2001 ). Despite this, almost all of the parents reported that TES helped their children and it is this subjective but unreal effect that is a common finding in CAM users and that may relate to the increased attention and input that result in emotional gains (‘At least we're doing something’; ‘I'll try anything for my child’).

If you’re a nurse who is new to oncology, administering or planning to administer chemotherapy/biotherapy, or caring for patients receiving chemotherapy this course is your first stop.
