Professor Dr. Ion-Christian Chiricuţă, collaborator of the “Carol Davila” University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Bucharest, presented at the first National Conference “Technology & IHealth in 21st Century Medicine”, held in Târgu Mureş, a project designed to revolutionize cancer treatment in children in Romania – proton therapy, a therapy that does not produce side effects. “I presented the future of radiotherapy, the future of children with cancer, if there was a proton center. And I was positively impressed by the reception I found in Târgu Mureş, at different levels. Even today there was a lot of discussion at the session Neurosurgery, the importance of proton therapy Proton therapy provides radiological therapy at a defined target volume and produces no side effects! long-lasting side effects, sarcomas appear at 10-15 years, which are more dramatic than the tumor you have cured. he almost certainly kills “, Dr. Ion-Christian Chiricuţă clarified for AGERPRES. This type of therapy, the professor said, is successfully experienced in countries such as the USA, Germany, France, Japan, Great Britain, Holland, Norway. He said his project has only remained on paper for the past seven years, as decision-makers calculate only the costs, not the beneficial effects of the therapy and the subsequent gains. “A proton center is a dream come true to give children with cancer a future. Children with cancer can be cured by over 90%. If we don’t use the center with protons, that percentage is reduced. You create a future for a family. You should be will, nothing else Everyone is looking at costs, not benefits and gain I have been fighting for almost 7 years, I have a project on paper, it is a dream, it is important to find the conjuncture to create. together oncopediatrics, imaging, to be used to the fullest.Create a nucleus center, with imagers, radiologists, oncologists, physicists, create a new society for maximum therapy, healing without side effects.I have never had a a more pleasant feeling that it would be possible to achieve like at this conference! My dream could come true and the place where it is a conjuncture, is this medical and technological center from Târgu Mureş. people who think like me “, said Professor Dr. Ion-Christian Chiricuţă. Professor Ion-Christian Chiricuţă, the son of the famous professor Ion Chiricuţă, who is linked to the modernization of the Oncological Institute in Cluj-Napoca, claims that without technology there is no oncology. “I have been dealing with cancer for 30 years and the most important thing is its approach: either surgical or systemic treatment and now we have reached immunotherapy, which is the natural course and genetic therapy will probably appear. But an important part is the diagnosis and without this diagnosis, without current technology, you cannot apply any therapy effectively.Effective in the sense that the first thing is to know where the tumor is, to find out if it has metastasized, where they are and this means staging: CT , MRI, Scintigraphy, PET and so on, they create the framework for finding out what stage the tumor is in. Histology determines the origin and then the procedures begin, and the oncology commission establishes a certain sequence. you can’t apply any kind of strategy. And without working in a team you can’t “, said Dr. Chiricuţă. Regarding the National Conference “Technology & IHealth in 21st Century Medicine”, organized by the University of Medicine, Pharmacy, Sciences and Technology “George Emil Palade” from Târgu Mureş and the Romanian Medical Association, under the patronage of the Romanian Academy, Dr. Ion-Christian Chiricuţă considers that this is a reset of Romanian medicine. “The event in Târgu Mureş, in which I am very happy to have participated, is a reset of medicine in Romania. In Romania, in the last 30 years, we live convulsions non-stop, everyone has his guide, his procedure and the result is a society This conference in Târgu Mureş is a moment of restart at which came the best specialists who dedicated four days to participate in this national conference, where fundamental things were discussed in depth. Mureş, through this technology platform, which is in addition to the faculties that study only medicine and pharmacy, created the conditions to create this platform for young people (…). The session here showed the potential of this future, it is the applied technology Within the medical school, all first year students should participate in this medical-technical society where they will find their future “, said the doctor. Dr. Ion-Christian Chiricuţă believes that Romania’s major problem is that it loses young people in favor of foreigners, who leave “after a Morgana Girl and can’t find her”, as he himself found. “I was abroad and not only does Girl Morgana not exist, but it’s a desert and I didn’t just say it (….). And I came back for several reasons and the first one was that of to teach young people what I learned I succeeded and I had a chance to create a center where I could implement the concepts I learned in a very well organized school (….). performance and in Romania and there are big centers that have appeared, but a lot of young people are losing who leave, it’s a hemorrhage “, said Dr. Ion-Christian Chiricuţă, who did the residency in the radiotherapy department of the Marienhospital – Herne Hospital Bochum Gernamia), worked in the Radiotherapy Clinic of the University of Wuerzburg and was the director of the Institute of Oncological Radiotherapy at St. John’s Hospital.
