Proton therapy lowers risk of side effects in cancer compared to traditional radiation

PHILADELPHIA – Proton therapy leads to significantly lower risk of side effects severe enough to lead to unplanned hospitalizations for cancer patients when compared with traditional radiation, while cure rates between the two groups are almost identical.
