Oncoindex 01-2020

Cancer patients in Poland have limited access to treatment consistent with contemporary medical knowledge. Oncoindex is the first portal to demonstrate the level of reimbursement of cancer medicines in Poland, medicines which are registered in Europe since 2004 and recommended by European Society for Medical Oncology. The Oncoindex can have a value between -100 and 0. A value of -100 means that patients have no access to any of the recommended medicine, while a value of zero means that every patient can be treated in line with current medical knowledge. Find out which therapies are recommended by scientists for different types of cancer and which of them are reimbursed in Poland.
