Symposium to feature cancer treatment with hyperthermia


BSD Medical's BSD-2000 Hyperthermia System (BSD-2000) will be featured at the first symposium on hyperthermia treatment of cancer held in Taiwan. Taipei Medical University and Taipei City Wan Fang Hospital will jointly host the “2013 Taipei International Symposium on Cancer Hyperthermia” on Sunday, November 3rd at the Taipei Medical University. BSD's Taiwan distributor, Linden Bioscience has been invited to present on the BSD-2000 at the symposium.



The conference will feature presentations by pre-eminent hyperthermia researchers, including Dr Jacobi van der Zee, an authority on hyperthermia treatment. BSD's equipment will be featured in many of these presentations. Eight of the cancer-related societies in Taiwan will participate in the symposium. Many physicians throughout Taiwan and Asia do their internships at Wan Fang Hospital because the hospital is affiliated with Taipei Medical University.



Linden has committed to purchasing four BSD-2000 Hyperthermia Systems. Shipment will commence with Linden’s receipt of Taiwan Food and Drug Administration (TFDA) import licence approval, which is in process.



“We are excited about the opportunity to showcase the BSD-2000 Hyperthermia System at the forthcoming symposium," stated Dr Tainang Huang, President of Linden. "We have already met with prominent Taiwan physicians from several hospitals. We are excited about the potential market for the BSD-2000 in Taiwan, which is one of the most advanced medical device markets in Asia.”



Taiwan has a strong healthcare system, and the universal health insurance ensures that all citizens have grown to expect a high level of care. Taiwan's medical device market is approximately $1.6 billion.
