Specialists Welcome New Treatment Procedure for Treating Breast Cancer

Cancer specialists have greeted the much projected results of a decade-long examination of a treatment for early breast cancer that reduces a six-week course of tumor-destroying radiation to a solitary half-hour sitting.

David Joseph, a radiation Oncologist and Director of the cancer division at Perth's Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital said that the outcomes of the trial are tremendously encouraging.

The objective of the process, intra-operative radiation therapy, is to make treatment more suitable and relaxed for women, at the same time as retaining as much of their breast that has been affected as probable.

Hypothetically, IORT may well be carried out at any hospital or treatment centre, and is affordable to deliver because fewer medical visits are required.

Joseph, Co-Chairman said that critics with time came around to hank for the positive results that had been received from the trial.

He said that with the new treatment procedure available now, better results are obtained with less toxicity for patients with the given treatment.

Along with Co-leader, Michael Baum, an Oncologist with University College London, Joseph will demonstrate results of the multicentre trial today in Chicago at the American Society of Clinical Oncology's yearly meeting.

It has been confirmed that the single dose methodology is safe and efficient.
