Russian satellite news agency reported on August 14 that many Russian medical experts questioned the safety of radiotherapy for new coronal infection in an interview with the Russian “news newspaper”, which may cause damage to human immune cells.
novel coronavirus infection was successfully treated by radiation therapy in the United States and Canada. The novel coronavirus infection caused by pneumonia is low dose of X rays, said Jack Eddie, an expert at the Canadian Cancer Center. The study was published in the Journal of the European Society of radiotherapy and oncology. 10 novel coronavirus pneumonia patients were studied by the research team of the Cancer Institute of Emory University. The results showed that the recovery rate of patients receiving radiotherapy was increased by three times. The study authors found no side effects. “Radiotherapy has been used in the treatment of cancer patients,” said Stanislav ostavnov, deputy director of the laboratory for population health index analysis and digital health care at the Moscow Institute of physical technology. However, we do not know whether radiotherapy is the key to the treatment of respiratory tract infections. The problem with radiotherapy is the accompanying damage, which may be more serious than the treatment itself. ” The novel coronavirus infection in low-dose radiation therapy has not been fully observed in fact, and systematic observations have been made by Irina Lebetenko, chief researcher of
‘s Center for oncology research in Russia. She said even small doses of radiation can cause tumors, so she called for other treatments.
