Patients in Europe benefit from new radiation therapy
Date:10/29/2009

A new, innovative form of radiation based on verified scientific facts will be available to patients all over Europe within the next few decades. The official kick-off meeting of the Community project ULICE (Union of LIght Ions Centres in Europe), which the European Union is supporting with nearly 10 million euros, was held in fall 2009 in the Department of Radiooncology and Radiation Therapy of the Heidelberg University Hospital. This consortium consists of a total of 21 European research and treatment facilities in the field of ion therapy who have joined forces in an interdisciplinary network in order to advance basic research in the fields of physics, biology and medicine, and to effectively use the existing ion therapy facilities in Europe in a joint effort to further develop this technique.

Transnational clinical studies

The project as a whole is divided into three programs:

  • Patients will be treated in the context of joint transnational clinical therapy studies in ion therapy facilities. This project is to be coordinated and directed from Heidelberg, where patient assignment and indications will be structured and established, and transnational and transinstitution databases for clinical and preclinical parameters will be established.
  • The second program will consist of the research and further development of ion therapy in the various clinical and preclinical sub-areas in focus; these joint research activities will be centrally coordinated from Vienna.
  • The third program will focus on communication and interaction as well as interdisciplinary discussion and consensus building, and will be centrally directed by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva.

Four primary project directors will be responsible for the project: Prof. Dr. Roberto Orrechia, Medical Director of Radiooncology and the National Center for Hadron Therapy (Centro Nazionale di Adroterapia Oncologica, CNAO) in M
