Six months after launch, three paediatric oncology patients to get treatment at Tata Memorial Centre, Kharghar

India's first public sector proton therapy unit at Tata Memorial Centre's Advanced Centre for Treatment, Research and Education in Cancer (ACTREC) will treat its first three paediatric oncology patients this week. The unit uses positively charged particles to bombard cancer cells, sparing normal tissues and reducing side effects. The treatment is free for 60% of patients, with the remaining patients receiving a subsidised rate. Tata Memorial Centre's paediatric department has seen a rise in cases and believes proton therapy will be effective for childhood cancers.
