Nice, September 19, 2016 – Treatment of the first patient by high-energy protontherapy began at the Mediterranean Institute of Protontherapy, inaugurated on June 30th by the Center Antoine Lacassagne, Nice Cancer Institute, France.

“The first patient benefiting from this innovative technology has a brain tumor which couldn’t be treated by surgery,” explains Dr. Pierre-Yves BONDIAU, radiotherapist and Director of the Mediterranean Institute of Protontherapy. “With this technique, a precise and high dose of proton radiation is delivered to the tumor while preserving the surrounding healthy cells.”
