Many patients from India go abroad for getting newer forms of cancer treatment. Now, a contemporary treatment based on precision oncology is available in India. This contemporary approach is based on the newer science of precision oncology where tumour genes are studied and the right treatment including targeted therapy and immunotherapy is given to the patient either alone or in combination. This treatment attacks the cancer cells and the underlying survival mechanisms utilised by the cancer cells. This is more effective and has less side effects as compared to blanket chemotherapy based on the stage and histology of tumour.

Gracing the occasion Padma Shri Dr Pk Julka said “that with increase in incidences of cancer every year, there is also an increase in the survivorship of the patient”

The event was attended by various cancer experts of all specialities including medical, surgical, radiation, pathology from various premier institutes of the country. It was also attended by the pharma and diagnostic industry personnels who are into this sphere of genomic testing, targeted therapies, immunotherapies and precision oncology.
