First patient treated with QuiremSpheres® at the Florence Nightingale hospital in Turkey
On May 4th 2018, the first patient in Turkey was treated with QuiremSpheres® at the Florence Nightingale Hospital in Istanbul. Prof. Dr. Murat Cantaşdemir and Dr. Abdullah Yakupoğlu, both interventional radiologists, together with nuclear physician Prof. Dr. Cüneyt Türkmen, successfully performed the radioembolization procedure with QuiremSpheres® (holmium-based microspheres). The patient was treated for advanced primary liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma). This first treatment in Turkey, which was a joint effort of Terumo, Moltek and Quirem Medical, marks yet another step in the global adoption of QuiremSpheres®.
