Legal changes as a chance for proton therapy

Ten post jest także dostępny w języku: polski

The Ministry of Health is planning to add four new indications for proton therapy to the basket of guaranteed services. These will be strings or cartilage molluscs in children (tumours of the base of the skull and perinatal region) and soft tissue and bone sarcomas in adults (tumours of the periosteum, base of the skull and spinal region).  The Ministry of Health also wants to introduce financing for the treatment of glandular and cystic salivary gland tumours, after surgery and without the possibility of repeated surgery. The fourth indication is to be the local recurrence of head and neck cancer, after radical radiotherapy, if repeated radical irradiation is required.

There is currently one proton therapy centre in Poland – Bronowice Cyclotron Centre (within the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences). It provides services based on agreements with, among others, the University Hospital in Kraków and the University Children’s Hospital in Kraków.  It is estimated that the centre uses only 10-15% of its capacity due to low financing.

According to the recommendations of the European Society of Oncological Radiation Therapy, there should be one protonotherapy centre per 10 million inhabitants. This means that there should be 3-4 such centres in Poland. According to the report “Strategy of protonotherapy development in Poland”, about 2 thousand patients annually have indications for protonotherapy.

  1. We had everything we wanted as a family except good health. I had to do this for the benefit of those who still doubt the efficacy of genuine herbal medicines just as my dad doubted the moment i came with the news of Dr. WHITE been able to cure Herpes Virus. Unlike Mum, dad is a (RACIST) who never believed something good could come from the black nation. I was beautiful and adventurous but when I had herpes infection spreading in my body like wide fire at a time Dad was battling HIV it was like a dark cloud covering my family. For many years i suffered pain and shame. I decided to surf the internet for alternative cure which lead me to Dr. WHITE whatsapp +2349091844595 a powerful but humble herbalist and healer who promised to cure me and kept to his words. This man is another Daddy from a different nation. At first I was skeptical, I asked him both relevant and irrelevant questions but he was patient to prove my medical doctors and dad wrong who said no cure. Haven made every arrangement; he prepared and sent the cure to me through Courier express service which I received at door step. In 2weeks of using his cure my symptoms disappeared and I was well again though the prescription was for a month. All thanks to Dr. White who put integrity and human sympathy above material things. I had read many testimonies of those who benefited from Dr. WHITE medicines, this actually prompted me to write him but today, I’m herpes free and Dad is HIV negative haven seen my case and got convinced to use herbal cure. Heavenly thanks to Dr. WHITE for restoring our Joy. Carlito Savannah
