Improves the probability of a cure. The targeted bundling of the proton energy directly within the tumor reduces the total radiation delivered to healthy tissue to only one-third or less, depending on the relevant tumor geometry, in comparision to X-ray radiation with the same tumor dose. This enables a higher therapeutic dose to be used so tumor cells can be reliably destroyed. Theoretically, this means the probability of a cure rises in unmetastasized tumors. Currently, with chordomas of the skull e.g. the rate from 20 to 55% “local control rates” with x-rays raises to 70 till 80% with protons (see e.g. Scientific Report 2007 of the PSI Paul Scherrer Institute in Villingen, Switzerland). Analysis of more than 2,000 proton therapy patients showed that 98% were cured (Ocular melanomas, references ibid.).“

BerlinProtonen – Proton therapy at Charité
The BerlinProtonen specializes in the use of proton therapy in the treatment of eye tumors. Since 1998, proton therapy has been considered a successful and highly effective method of treating intraocular tumors. Today, the innovative therapy of BerlinProtonen can slow down the tumor growth and preserve the useful visual function of the affected eye in 95% of patients, even in case of multiple large tumors.
University Hospital Essen
Department of Proton Therapy
The team of the Department of Proton Therapy provides proton treatment within the framework of the West German Proton Therapy Center in Essen (WPE). WPE is one of the leading institutions in the field of proton radiation therapy in Germany and one of the most advanced Proton Therapy Centers in the world. The Department of Proton Therapy at the Essen University Hospital treats patients with tumors in the sensitive areas of the human body, which are difficult to operate or are inoperable at all.
