Renewed Hope with Innovative Treatment

Medical innovation has brought about many advancements in treating lung cancer. In fact, personalized treatments can help patients live up to 5 years upon diagnosis2, when the current 5-year survival rate for advanced lung cancer patients in Malaysia only ranges from 6.3% to 7.5%3. That means you can have more tomorrows with your loved ones.

With new and innovative treatment options, there is renewed hope in the fight against lung cancer.

Improving Access to Innovative Treatment
Innovative treatment has proven to be beneficial in terms of improving the survival rate of lung cancer patients. However, it is currently more accessible in private hospitals.

More can be done to increase patient accessibility.
