Laboratorios Rubió, as part of its continuous dedication to research and promotion of scientific inquiry, was a driving force behind the conference “Current state of the prevention and treatment of acute and late toxicity in the pelvis. An original technique for radiation cystitis”, that was presented as part of the 8th Congress on Complementary Therapies in Radiation Oncology. This congress, held at Madrid’s Hospital de la Paz and attended by more than 250 professionals, offers a wide programme of high educational value, led by specialists Ana Mañas and Alejandro de la Torre.
The conference driven by Rubió was led by Dr Luis Olay, head of the prostate division of the radiation oncology service of the Hospital Universitario Central de Asturias (HUCA), who presented a real-life case of a patient undergoing radiation therapy treated with Cystistat, with a very good prognosis and progression. “We used Cystistat because of its molecular weight, efficacy and concentration, which make it the ideal hyaluronic acid for this technique. Not all hyaluronic acids are the same”, he stated in his presentation. The aim of the congress is to bring medical knowledge in radiation therapy up to date, in order to improve the quality of life of cancer patients, reduce the complications they suffer, and treat their long and short-term side effects.
