The Japanese Institute has the best five-year survival rates in the country in the treatment of stomach, rectum and lung cancer. Another area of interest to the Russian side is the formation of a cancer registry, which, in fact, is a roadmap for the treatment of each patient. The register is a constantly updated digital database containing information about the patient, his diagnosis, appointments, treatment and results of therapy. As the Director General of the Osaka International Institute of Oncology said at the signing, this institute has the most extensive register.”As an oncology center, it is one of the oldest in Japan, we have the largest oncological registry,” said Nariaki Matsuura, Director General of the Institute. According to Kaprin, Russia will cooperate with the Japanese institute in the formation of its own registry, and will also take over the Japanese experience in outpatient chemotherapy of cancer patients.
