Congratulations, the first patient treated has been with IBA’s proton therapy compact solution Proteus®ONE at the Willis-Knighton Cancer Center A significant milestone for IBA and a major step in the treatment of cancer has been achieved to make proton therapy more affordable without compromising on performance. On September 9 2014, the first patient has been treated with IBA’s compact proton therapy solution, Proteus®ONE, at the Willis-Knighton Cancer Center (WKCC) in Shreveport, Louisiana, USA.The patient received Image Guided Intensity Modulated Proton Therapy (IMPT) treatment on 9 September 2014, three months ahead of schedule.The first patient treatment occurred less than 14 months after arrival of the equipment on site, faster than any competitive solution in the market. This underlines IBA’s ability to deliver proton therapy swiftly and reliably to its customers all over the world. In addition to the WKCC, four other Proteus®ONE systems have been sold in Nice (France), Taiwan (ROC) and two in Japan and IBA anticipates that the international interest in Proteus®ONE will continue to build momentum.IBA’s compact system is a highly differentiated offering, not only is it smaller, less expensive, and faster to install than other proton therapy systems, it also encompasses the latest in targeted proton therapy technologies, including IBA’s IMPT, and adaPTinsight, the most advanced image guidance platform for proton therapy. IBA received Marketing Authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in July 2014 and CE mark for its Compact Gantry Beam Line in September 2014. This success was only made possible by thecollaboration of passionate teams on both WKCC's and IBA’s side. CONGRATULATIONS to all of them.
