WHO WE ARE

At UGM in Yogyakarta a prototype NPC diagnostic center is already operational. It was created with the support of the Dutch cancer foundation and is manned with well-trained personnel. The expertise of this center should for example be used for educational purposes and in setting up similar university based centers in Indonesia improving know how and exchange of scientific expertise.

 

To achieve our goals all new medical initiatives for cancer detection and treatment in Indonesia should have:

 

Laboratory facilities like facilities with serological (ELISA) and molecular (PCR) equipment;

 

Endoscopic facilities like adequate scopes preferably combined with treatment instruments such as lasers for photodynamic therapy to treat small tumors the moment that they are detected;

 

And last but not least adequate RT treatment facilities. These are desperately needed in Indonesia particularly radiotherapy equipment.

 

Our expertise is the detection of virus related cancers for example nasopharyngeal cancer by measuring DNA loads of these cancers and measuring HPV antigens in early cervix cancers. Next to that a very promising development is the support for treatment of breast cancer by evaluating the necessity of adjuvant chemotherapy by means of the recently developed technique called “mammaprint”. Next to these techniques we also support expertise in the  implementation of protocols for early diagnosis of gastro intestinal cancers AMC(Amsterdam Medical Center) Amsterdam.All these technical  means for early detection are available and they should be applied.
