    Continental Hospital in Hyderabad has successfully completed two groundbreaking cancer cases. These achievements are a world record and a first in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. To celebrate this milestone, a success meet was held at Continental Hospitals in Hyderabad on December 19.

    The Continental Cancer Centre at Continental Hospitals in Hyderabad performed a unique Dendritic Cell Therapy for a patient with glioblastoma, an aggressive brain tumor. This therapy uses the immune system to fight cancer cells. Dr. AVS Suresh, a senior consultant for Medical Oncology and Hematology, explained that the treatment involves extracting the patient’s immune cells and cancer cells to create a vaccine with the help of a drug manufacturer. The vaccine is then administered through the skin.
