Beyond Medicines in Ukraine

Health needs and challenges

The CD30 and PET-CT scans needed for diagnosis of lymphoma are unaffordable for some patients in Ukraine.

How the program and partnership activities address needs and challenges

The program covers the costs for PET-CT scans, an expensive diagnostic procedure that is not covered by the government or health insurance. It also covers the costs of immuno-histochemistry which is a valuable clinical tool for assessing CD30+ patients who may respond to treatments such as Adcetris® that target the CD30 protein.

In addition, the program also provides professional development of pathologists, through our partner, National Cancer Institute of Ukraine:

Seminars to discuss difficult diagnostic cases, which in turn strengthen inks between pathologists and clinicians

Provision of web-based resources for pathologists

Hodgkin’s lymphoma tutorials for clinicians in the major cities of Ukraine

 

The data for this program has been reviewed by both the companies and the Access Observatory team.
