The National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) is a national and regional centre offering a one-stop holistic patient-centred clinical service directed at the prevention and treatment of cancers, including Thoracic, Hepatobiliary, Pancreatic and Head and Neck cancers.
The centre has the largest pool of internationally qualified oncologists in Singapore. Supported by a team of nursing and allied health professionals, NCCS staff work together to achieve the best outcomes for patients, comparable to those of international centres.
- An international study by NCC Singapore in 2006 established a comprehensive molecular roadmap of stomach cancer. This first collaborative effort by four major cancer centres in Asia has provided significant findings on the biological pathways involved in this disease.
- At NCC Singapore, a first-in-man mini allogeneic stemcell transplant for advanced nasopharyngeal cancer is near completion and shows encouraging results with acceptable toxicity in 20 heavily pre-treated patients.
- NCCS offers Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) which uses computer-generated images to accurately deliver precise radiation dose to enhance tumour eradication with decreased side effects.
