Within Hours of contacting the hospital Dr Sadeq from Bookimed called me and had a chat for few minutes to learn about my case. Next day I received an email from Ms Burcu with my appointments. On arriving to the hospital a translator was waiting to assist in making the paper work and accompany me to the clinics. In three consecutive days I saw three professor doctors highly knowledgeable after which I received an email with the reports of the professors and the different departments. I am confident that my case is professionally assessed and I am very thankful. The coordination and follow up was perfect. The system really works at its best

Diagnostics is at the level, but you will not receive a conclusion and diagnosis, there will also be problems with translation into Russian, you will not wait for them. The clinic is not interested in treating you, it is possible to operate, there is no medication. Диагностика на уровне, но вы не получите заключения и диагноза, с переводом на русский язык так же будут проблемы, вы их не дождётесь. Клиника не заинтересована вас лечить, оперировать возможно, медикаментозно нет.

So far we only had an initial consultation. Even though we haven’t received the answers we hoped for, we can only say good things about the team participating in the consultation. The team was very professional and understanding. They listened to our questions and patiently answered them all.

On the whole, everything is operational in the clinic, as soon as we entered the girl’s clinic at the reception, they quickly reacted. Professor himself Dr. Med. Barberra took us very politely, took a lot of time to adapt the child to himself, so that he would get used to it, because the child was scared, the professor took a direct individual approach, which is rare enough for a doctor of this level, especially considering that he is not at all a child, even a surgeon, so I want to note this moment, so the little patient, of course, is worth contacting. The doctor promptly worked because he didn’t see the problem in his direction and redirected us to orthopedists where we were also promptly given an x-ray. Nord Clinics Alyan is very accurate in the organization, that is, we were met minute by minute in time, I want to mention Karina, a girl translator, who accompanied us all the time, no delays, no extra calls. В целом в клинике все оперативно, как только мы поступили в клинику девушки на ресепшене быстро среагировали. Сам профессор Dr. Мed. Barberra принял нас очень вежливо, уделил много времени адаптации ребенка к себе, что бы он привык, поскольку ребенок был испуган, профессор проявил прям индивидуальный подход, что достаточно редко для доктора такого уровня особенно учитывая что он вовсе не детский даже хирург, поэтому хочу отметить именно этот момент, так что маленьким пациента, конечно, стоит туда обращаться. Доктор оперативно сработал поскольку по своему направлению не увидел проблему и перенаправил нас к ортопедам где нам так же оперативно сделали рентген. Норд Клиник Альян очень точные в организации, то есть нас минута в минуту по времени встретили, отдельно хочу отметить Карину, девушка переводчик, все время нас сопровождала, никаких задержек, никаких лишних звонков делать не приходилось.

FAQ about Xofigo Radium-223

What is radium-223 (Xofigo)?

Radium-223 is a kind of internal radiotherapy to treat metastases in the bones caused by prostate cancer. Xofigo is a brand name that produces radium-223.

Xofigo mechanism of action is the following: radium-223 affects bone cancer cells. This radioactive agent is similar to calcium, so it is absorbed by bones. As a result, cancer cells, located in the bones, are directly destroyed by radium-223 (Xofigo) radiation.

How is radium-223 (Xofigo) for prostate cancer used?

  1. A patient arrives to a hospital, undergoes diagnostic procedure to determine a dose of Xofigo injections.
  2. The medical center orders radium-223 (Xofigo). The delivery of the drug takes about 1 week. The therapy starts.
  3. Radium-223 (Xofigo) is a radioactive agent administered intravenously. A doctor puts a thin cannula in the vein during a treatment session. It takes about 1 minute.

The Xofigo injection is repeated every 4 weeks. The maximum number of injections is 6. The procedure is outpatient — you leave the hospital immediately after the injection. A patient can stay in the country for this period or to return home after injection.

To control a patient's health condition, blood tests are required between treatment sessions.

When is radium-223 (Xofigo) indicated?

Radium-223 (Xofigo) injection is indicated in case:

  • when surgical or hormonal treatments are ineffective for prostate cancer no longer
  • cancer (metastases) has spread to the bones but not other parts of the body
  • a patient has not been treated by Abiraterone (a hormonal therapy drug). The following treatment with radium-223, in this case, increases the risk of bone fractures.

Among the contraindications to radium-223 (Xofigo) for prostate cancer treatment may be:

  • Bone marrow pathologies/problems — radium-223 (Xofigo) can provoke lowering blood cells down. In this case, a patient will need a blood transfusion.
  • Previous or current treatment with chemotherapy or extensive radiotherapy.
  • Other abnormal health conditions.
  • Only a doctor can determine whether radium-223 (Xofigo) is adequate prostate cancer treatment in your case and estimate possible risks.

    What are the side effects of radium-223 for prostate cancer?

    Radium-223 (Xofigo) may cause such side effects:

    • diarrhea
    • nausea
    • swelling in the extremities
    • vomiting
    • reduced blood cells counts
    • pain in bones.

    In most of the cases, side effects are mild. But do not hesitate to tell your doctor if some of them occur.

    What are the recommendations after prostate cancer treatment with radium-223?

    A doctor will give you recommendations specific for your case, however there some universal advice:

    • drink a lot of water for a few days after treatment to speed up radiation withdrawing from your body
    • wash the hands carefully every time you visit a toilet
    • wash your underwear separately to avoid radiation spread.

    You need to follow this advice for several days during the treatment with radium-223.

    What is the price for radium-223?

    Radium-223 (Xofigo) cost is considered quite high compared to prostatectomy, HIFU, or brachytherapy prices, for instance.
