SBF Healthcare to be associated with international universities for neuro-oncology research
In India, at least 40,000-50,000 people are diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme brain tumours, of which 20% are children
For the first time in Indian history, Sequentially Programmed Magnetic Field (SPMF) Therapy, invented by Wg Cdr (Dr) VG Vasishta, Founder & Chairman, SBF Healthcare, has set its benchmark in medical technology and has been recently adopted by the US for neuro-oncology research for treatment of malignant brain tumour cancer.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has also been signed between SBF Healthcare and University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) & University of Pennsylvania for advancement in Neuro-Oncology research for treatment of malignant brain tumour cancer. According to the new bill announced by US President, Donald Trump on ‘Right to Try Law’, SPMF Therapy can be used for treatment by any US citizen without any FDA approval.
In India, at least 40,000-50,000 people are diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) brain tumours, of which 20 percent are children. Brain tumours are primarily treated with surgery, Chemotherapy and Radiation. After these treatments, the average survival is not more than 14 months. This indicates that such patients are left with very little or no chances of survival. However, with SPMF Therapy, such patients have been treated successfully who have survived for more than five years on average. SPMF is a unique type of treatment that is non-invasive and safe, painless, affordable, scientifically proven and most effective treatment for brain tumour. A patient’s condition is evaluated using MRI and the Karnofsky Performance Score (KPS) which are the gold standards for evaluating the efficacy of a therapy. This treatment is administered through an advanced medical device called AKTIS SOMA. This therapy is conducted over a 28-day period (one hour a day).
Speaking on the occasion, Wg Cdr (Dr) VG Vasishta, said, “There is a major need for non-surgical intervention without any side effects in the treatment of cancer. SPMF Therapy provides a non-invasive and safe treatment without any side effects. It halts the progression of the disease and improves quality of life and extends the survival period. It also helps develop a patient’s emotional and psychological wellbeing. This therapy has proven to be a miracle for many patients with malignant tumours and is now set to help make progress in fields of Neuro-oncology Research through our association with two leading universities in the US. Until today, India has been relying on Western countries for advanced medical treatment and techniques. I am extremely delighted that, with SPMF Therapy, we are setting the ground for an Indian medical technology to be used by people across the globe for treating a complex disorder such as brain tumours. For the first time, an advanced medical technology developed by an Indian will be approved to be used for the treatment of brain tumours in the US.”
