GenesisCare and OncoBeta announce partnership to provide innovative treatment for non-melanoma skin cancer
Non-invasive therapy for non-melanoma skin cancer is now available at select GenesisCare treatment sites
By: OncoBeta GmbH
Starting in June 2023 GenesisCare will offer the new therapy from their Tugan clinic, at John Flynn Private Hospital Gold Coast. This will be followed shortly after by GenesisCare clinics at Murdoch at St John of God Hospital – Perth, Chermside Medical Complex – Brisbane, Hurstville at Waratah Private Hospital – Sydney, and Cabrini Hospital – Melbourne.
Australia has the highest incidence of non-melanoma skin cancer in the world, with 32% of Australians treated for non-melanoma skin cancer each year. Recent data indicated that 70% of Australians will have at least one non-melanoma skin cancer excised. People with a history of skin cancer have a greatly elevated risk of developing new lesions. Currently used standard of care surgical treatment options can be scarring and disfiguring. OncoBeta's technology will offer a new and effective treatment option to address this large Australian medical burden.
Nicholas H. Vetter, OncoBeta Group CEO, stated, "This is a huge step forward for our organization. We are very excited about working together with GenesisCare to bring our technology for treating non-melanoma skin cancer to Australia. GenesisCare is a strong partner we look forward to collaborating with to reach thousands of Australians afflicted with non-melanoma skin cancer."
"The partnership with GenesisCare is a significant milestone for OncoBeta in Australia," said Shannon D. Brown III, CEO and Managing Director at OncoBeta® GmbH. "This will enhance access to precise, individualised treatments for non-melanoma skin cancer patients. The partnership aligns with our company's vision to improve quality of life for non-melanoma skin cancer patients across Australia."
GenesisCare Chief Medical Officer, Dr Marie Burke, stated, "We are looking forward to Australian patients having access to OncoBeta's innovative treatment for non-melanoma skin cancers. This fits well into the treatment portfolio offered at GenesisCare sites and represents a promising new option for certain patients with skin cancer that may be suitable for the single-session, non-invasive treatment."
