Our Scientific Commitment

Although proton beam therapy is the expanding radiotherapy treatment option of choice for cancer, its cost is currently hindering its worldwide expansion.

Advanced Oncotherapy's LIGHT system is designed to deliver superior clinical effectiveness at a competitive cost.

Why?

There is a superior radiotherapy technology to treat cancer - proton therapy - but it is not widely available and up until now has been too expensive.

  • Worldwide 12 million patients could benefit proton therapy, but currently, the capacity of all proton centres allow for only 60,000 patients to be treated.
  • Proton therapy is available predominantly in big cities in rich countries. Our goal is to make this treatment available to everybody.

How?

Advanced Oncotherapy is developing a unique, fully integrated, proton therapy system: the LIGHT system which is expected to become the first commercially available linear proton accelerator for the medical treatment of cancer patients. Advanced Oncotherapy's LIGHT system is designed to deliver superior clinical effectiveness at a competitive cost. In addition, its modular accelerator construction allows for easier installation at any site.
