The Activities of the Anticancer Center in Lyons
Professor Bérard, director of the anticancer center in Lyons, has published an account of the work of the center in 1926. Treatment was given to 286 patients, while 400 others were examined at weekly consultations. The center has the services of some thirty eminent collaborators, possesses $40,000 worth of radium, and has much roentgenographic and diathermic apparatus. It is unfortunate that 60 per cent of the patients reach the institute too late to derive much benefit from the treatment. M. Bérard advises every one more than 40 years of age to be examined two or three times a year by a competent specialist.
