Scandinavian ChemoTech participates in the physical signing and conducts training at the newly initiated Centre of Excellence "CoE" in India
The Company's CEO Mohan Frick attended the physical signing ceremony and thus the official start of the Centre of Excellence collaboration, which has been initiated at India Sweden Healthcare Innovation Centre at AIIMS Jodhpur. The first TSE training treatments for breast, head and neck cancer were also performed.
Mohan Frick, our international application specialist Gayathri Iyer and representatives from Business Sweden were present during the signing ceremony. Yesterday, the Company’s applications specialist completed the training and certification of five doctors within the fields of surgery, medical oncology and radiology at AIIMS Jodhpur. These are the first doctors to be certified in TSE at a State hospital in India.
The patients, who were treated during the training, suffered from cancer where the assessment had been made that standard of care will not be beneficial. This now marks the start of the CoE that is expected to initiate its first studies with the aim of establishing clinical data for the effect of TSE treatment. The treatments performed were not part of any study.
“It has been a long process and both the Company and the doctors have been looking forward to reaching this goal for a while. Although it may now take a long time to get the go-ahead from the Ethics Committee, it feels as if we have already reached an important milestone today which in the long run can create completely new opportunities for TSE and the patients we will treat.” - says Mohan Frick, CEO of ChemoTech
“We are happy to initiate the collaboration with the training on Tumour Specific Electroporation that is conducted this week. We are looking forward to conduct clinical research to evaluate the impact of this technology on the patient outcomes after it gets all the required clearances from the Ethical Committee.”- says Dr. Sanjeev Misra, Director, AIIMS Jodhpur
