Inside your body there is an amazing protectio­n mechanism called the immune system. It is designed to defend you against millions of bacteria, microbes, viruses, toxins and parasites that would love to invade your body. The immune system is made up of special cells and chemicals that fight infection. The white blood cells that make

Every year in Switzerland, more than three thousand people die from lung cancer, the most deadly of all cancers. Men are the most affected, but in industrialized countries their tumors are decreasing, as many of them have given up tobacco. On the other hand, the number of cases increased among women who started smoking a

Focal One® is a computer-controlled medical device for the treatment of localised prostate cancer by focused ultrasound (HIFU = High Intensity Focused Ultrasound). The energy is delivered via an endorectal probe. The ultrasound waves travel through the rectal wall and are focused on a part of the prostate. This focusing produces intense heat, resulting in

Researchers analyzed samples from more than 15,000 patients to determine that a tissue biopsy is often useless to detect tumors! Starting from September 2016, Incorpore medical center will offer these blood analysis to its patients. A blood test would be as or more effective, than a tissue biopsy to detect a cancerous tumor and better

Your family history indicates a suspiscion for hereditary colorectal cancer? Genetic testing could be recommended by our specialists. Colorectal cancer (CRC) affects 1 in 20 people during their lifetime. An estimated 25% of all CRC cases present a familial clustering of the disease suggesting a contribution of genetic factors among other risk factors, while approximately

Radiotherapy, Chemotherapy… what to do after a heavy toxic oncology treatment Struggling against cancer is a huge path for a human being. First there is the diagnosis to accept and then quickly comes the concrete fight. It may include surgery, small or big, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormonotherapy and new treatments like immunotherapy for certain types of

Radiotherapy, Chemotherapy… what to do after a heavy toxic oncology treatment Struggling against cancer is a huge path for a human being.

Breast cancer can spread to other organs (liver, lung metastases, etc.) via the lymph. Obligatory passage of this liquid, a number of axillary lymph nodes can be removed simultaneously with the operation of the tumor. This axillary dissection may nevertheless lead to painful consequences. A new less traumatic method could remedy: the technique of the

A team based in Bern emphasize the importance of aggressive cells’ development in healthy tissues, opening the way for potential new treatments. Researchers supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation have discovered how aggressive cells can invade healthy tissue in the early stages of tumor development. This breakthrough opens a new way to attack cancer at its

Not all cancers are equally lethal: cancer in your prostate means a longer survival rate than a malignancy in your brain, for example. But even prostate cancer comes in multiple flavors ranging from manageable to very bad. By analyzing the mutated genome of a tumor, doctors can now pinpoint whether a cancer is sensitive to

Food has a profound effect on our health. From the first milk we take, to the vast array of culinary creations that give us both pleasure and sustenance, our genes influence our diets — and vice versa. This complex interplay has shaped human evolution. Nutrigenomics will help us exploit this relationship, blurring the boundaries between

Immunotherapy is a new class of cancer treatment that works to harness the innate powers of the immune system to fight cancer. Because of the immune system’s unique properties, these therapies may hold greater potential than current treatment approaches to fight cancer more powerfully, to offer longer-term protection against the disease, to come with fewer

Many people ask themselves whether they alread have cancer, whether they might have cancer. This examination is there to answer your questions. This check-up takes into account the last NCCN, ASCO, EMSO guidelines, but it also takes into account innovating aspect of molecular biology. This check-up specially values the dialogue with the doctor specializing on

Oncology (from the Greek. Onkos – mass build-up, swelling and Logos – teaching science) – the science that studies the causes, pathogenesis, clinical course of tumors and develops methods for treatment and prevention. Development of Oncology is closely linked with the success of biology (especially of Cytology and Genetics), chemistry (eg, biochemistry),  medical theory (pathology)
