La Clinique d’Oncologie 16 Novembre devient le premier site en Afrique à déployer le système de thérapie Ethos de Varian pour le traitement adaptatif du cancer

Le système innovant de Varian intègre l’intelligence artificielle pour administrer efficacement des traitements personnalisés qui s’adaptent aux changements de l’anatomie du patient

DUBAÏ, Émirats Arabes Unis, 10 juin 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Faisant progresser le traitement des patients atteints de cancer au Maroc, la Clinique d’Oncologie 16 Novembre a acquis et installé le système de thérapie Ethos™ – le premier de ce type en Afrique – de Varian, une société du groupe Siemens Healthineers. La thérapie Ethos, qui est uniquement fondée sur l’intelligence artificielle (IA), fournit aux patients atteints de cancer un traitement de radiothérapie personnalisé et adaptatif dans un créneau horaire typique de 15 à 30 minutes.

The Clinique d'Oncologie 16 Novembre clinical team with their new Ethos™ therapy system.

La thérapie adaptative personnalise le traitement du patient en fonction des changements tumoraux et anatomiques qui se produisent sur plusieurs semaines de traitement. L’objectif est de mieux cibler la tumeur, de réduire les doses reçues par les tissus sains et d’améliorer les résultats globaux.

« Nous sommes fiers d’être le premier centre de cancérologie en Afrique à proposer la thérapie Ethos », a déclaré le Dr Mounir Bachouchi, oncologue médical et directeur général de la Clinique d’Oncologie 16 Novembre. « La thérapie adaptative présente de très nombreux avantages tant pour le patient que pour le clinicien, et le système Ethos de Varian est à la pointe de cette technologie, permettant à notre équipe clinique d’adapter chaque traitement aux changements de l’anatomie d’un patient au jour le jour, améliorant potentiellement les résultats globaux. »

« Chaque patient mérite d’avoir accès aux soins anticancéreux les meilleurs et les plus personnalisés », a déclaré José-Manuel Valentim, directeur des opérations en Afrique chez Varian. « La Clinique d’Oncologie 16 Novembre est un centre de cancérologie très avant-gardiste qui s’attache à offrir des soins de pointe contre le cancer avec les technologies les plus avancées disponibles. »

En fournissant une vue actualisée de l’anatomie du patient – et en permettant d’utiliser ces informations pour adapter le traitement, la thérapie Ethos donne aux cliniciens la confiance nécessaire pour prendre des décisions de traitement plus éclairées. La solution s’appuie sur la toute dernière technologie d’administration des traitements de Varian et permet une imagerie et une administration des traitements rapides sans compromettre la qualité.

« La thérapie adaptative est l’avenir de la radiothérapie personnalisée, et nous sommes ravis que ce centre joue un rôle de premier plan en proposant Ethos aux patients marocains atteints de cancer », a ajouté M. Valentim. « C’est un grand tournant pour les soins contre le cancer en Afrique du Nord. »

More refugees die crossing the Mediterranean to Europe: UN

GENEVA, Despite the relatively lower numbers of refugees and migrants crossing the Mediterranean to Europe in recent years, the death toll had seen a steep rise, the United Nations refugee agency UNHCR said.

While reported numbers of refugees and migrants crossing the Mediterranean to Europe were fewer than in 2015, the journeys were becoming more fatal, said Shabia Mantoo, spokesperson for UNHCR.

“Since a peak in 2015, in which more than a million refugees and migrants crossed the Mediterranean to Europe, the numbers of those making these journeys had seen a downward trend,” she told a press briefing.

“In 2021, 123,300 individual crossings were reported, and prior to that 95,800 in 2020, 123,700 in 2019 and 141,500 in 2018,” she added.

Last year, she said, some 3,231 were recorded as dead or missing at sea in the Mediterranean and the northwest Atlantic, with 1,881 in 2020, 1,510 in 2019, and more than 2,277 in 2018.

In recent years UNHCR has continuously warned of the horrific experiences and dangers faced by refugees and migrants who resorted to these journeys, many of whom were fleeing violence and conflict.

Promoting peace, coexistence among HM King’s priorities: King’s Advisor

Rabat, Advisor to HM the King for Diplomatic Affairs, Shaikh Khalid bin Ahmed bin Mohammed Al Khalifa, has affirmed that the consolidation of the values of coexistence and peace among countries and peoples, as well as the support for dialogue aimed at achieving rapprochement and mutual understanding are among the most important priorities and pillars of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa’s policies.

Shaikh Khalid bin Ahmed also commended the unwavering interest of His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince and Prime Minister, in establishing joint action and collective cooperation based on the respect for pluralism, communication and fruitful openness to various peoples and cultures.

While addressing the opening session of “Tangier Dialogue”, hosted by Morocco, with the participation of senior officials and decision-makers from the region and many countries all over the world, HM the King’s Advisor asserted that Bahrain and Morocco have, for several centuries, agreed on a well-established wise policy based on equality in rights and duties among their peoples, as well as non-discrimination on any religious, ethnic and intellectual grounds among the members of their societies.

They also work together to enhance security, peace and stability in the region by spreading the culture of coexistence, dialogue and understanding as basic principles of joint action, he said, adding that they seek to foster rapprochement and communication among the countries of the region in a way that would benefit everyone and meet the aspirations of peoples for progress and prosperity.

Shaikh Khalid bin Ahmed reviewed Bahrain’s landmark achievements in passing laws and legislation that support social coexistence and protect it from anything that would affect its deep-rooted heritage.

He indicated that promoting the values of coexistence, dialogue and openness are essential pillars of HM King Hamad’s Reform Project, and one of the most important features of the authentic Bahraini identity, as confirmed by the National Action Charter and the Constitution.

HM the King’s Advisor extended sincere thanks to the Moroccan Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, Nasser Bourita, and all those in charge of the “Tangier Dialogue”, wishing the participants every success in achieving the goals of the event, namely the consolidation of the culture of peace, coexistence and dialogue among all countries and societies.

Kenya-Somalia talks clear way for miraa trade, flights resumption

NAIROBI, Kenya will resume exports of miraa (khat) to Somalia in two weeks following a thawing of relations that saw President Uhuru Kenyatta make his first trip to Somalia’s capital Mogadishu Thursday since the renewing of diplomatic ties between the two countries last June.

Kenya’s Agriculture Secretary Peter Munya said Kenyatta brokered the deal with new President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud on Thursday that will see the lifting of a two-year ban.

Munya said the export of the crop mainly grown in Meru County would begin in a fortnight when the two heads of state sign a formal trade agreement.

The minister also announced that direct flights between the two neighbouring countries would resume from next Tuesday, a move that would enable the crop to be flown directly from Isiolo airport.

A bilateral air service agreement would be signed on the sidelines of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (Igad) meeting slated for Tuesday in Nairobi, he said.

Addressing the press outside Kaliati dispensary in Tigania West, Meru County, when he started a two-day regional tour to local farmers, Munya said the new Somalia regime had promised improved diplomatic relations.

He said the trade talks were cemented after the Kenyan delegation, in which he was part, led by President Kenyatta, attended Mohamud’s inauguration in Mogadishu Thursday.

“We want to thank President Uhuru Kenyatta for the diplomatic negotiations he has been carrying out quietly. The ban had greatly affected the economy of Mt Kenya East and the farmers’ earnings,” he said.

Munya said talks were complete and what was remaining was the signing of the agreement that will also see Somalia sell seafood and other produce to Kenya.

Somalia closed access to its market for Kenya in 2020 following a political fallout between the two countries under former President Mohamed Abdullahi “Farmaajo”. The ban led to a loss of more than 50 tonnes of Kenyan khat valued at more than Ksh20 million ($171,000) a day.

Munya underlined the importance of the Somalia market, saying it is lucrative and serves as the launching pad for cargo transit to the Horn of Africa, the Middle East and other countries.

Ukraine Leader Cautions That Russian Blockade May Cause Global Food Shortages

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy warned Saturday that the Russian invasion of his country would harm the international order and cause severe economic losses for several countries. Speaking through a video link to ministers and officials from 42 countries attending the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore, a prominent security summit, he underscored the importance of strong action.

“I am grateful for your support… but this support is not only for Ukraine but for you as well,” he said. “It is on the battlefields of Ukraine that the future rules of this world are being decided along with the boundaries of the possible.”

Zelenskyy went on to explain that several countries in Asia and Africa would face famine and food shortages because Russian soldiers had laid a blockade to check the flow of food grains from Ukraine, one of the world’s top food producers.

“If… due to Russian blockades we are unable to export our foodstuffs, the world will face an acute and severe food crisis and famine in many countries in Asia and Africa,” the Ukrainian leader said.

There is a direct link between the soaring commodity prices and Russian military action. Russia started by blocking the flow of energy to jack up the prices, and it now is doing the same with food.

Russia is blocking ports in the Black Sea and Azov Sea, keeping Ukrainian food exports from the world market. That hurts not just Ukrainians but the entire world, Zelenskyy said.

Russia has described the blockade as a “special operation” meant to destroy Ukraine’s military capabilities and capture what it regards as dangerous nationalists.

“Please remember the war is being waged on our soil. People in Ukraine are dying. … We don’t want to go to Russian soil,” Zelenskyy told the delegates at the summit.

Ukraine’s ambassador to Singapore, Kateryna Zelenko, emphasized the country urgently requires additional assistance. “We understand it will take time, but time is what we don’t have,” she said.

The country is battling to push the Russian soldiers out of areas it has controlled since early in the war. Zelenskyy said Ukrainians are defending the country against ferocious Russian attacks in the country’s east, particularly around the city of Sievierodonetsk.
