etc. to decongest Rajendra Badwe: Also patients have faith in the opinion that doctors in Tata Hospital give Almost 60 per cent patients do not pay for the treatment here Kavitha Iyer: Does the advances in cancer care – in chemotherapy in surgery or cure rates improvement – diminish the larger battle against tobacco Rajendra Badwe: I don’t think so But we need a long-term plan May be the revenue human resources and agriculture department can come together to plan that by 2030 no farmer will grow tobacco For that they need incentives and subsidy If tobacco stock is paid for in advance for the next three years then why will a farmer not grow it We have discussed this idea that triple the tax on tobacco and we can half its use Punjab has been able to do some bit of it Tabassum Barnagarwala: When the government changed rules for clinical trials making it stricter by making video-recording compulsory did that affect patient participation in anyway Anil D’Cruz: The regulations came because consent was not done properly and there were issues First are trials that are industry-driven where there are huge participants and funds There was a lull in it but it is slowly picking up Second are investigator-generated trials which Tata Hospital encourages We had no problem in that because we have an ethics committee and proper guidelines that we follow Rajendra Badwe: The strictures came because of the mercantile nature of trials If drugs that are manufactured are used by only say 10 per cent of patients it is unfair For cancer it is not happening that a drug manufactured is available at rates affordable by majority of patients It is cheaper to run trials here and saves on investment Essentially now things have loosened up a bit In investigator trials if it is proven effective it will be implemented tomorrow But there are no incentive for such trials Of the last 150 drugs approved by US FDA the average increase in life due to these drugs is barely about six weeks Kavitha Iyer: If you could control big global pharma companies what would it be Rajendra Badwe: What is important is that anybody who is providing drug in every nook and corner of the world should be paid for but same thing can also be paid for by increasing the numbers who take the drug For example only five per cent of those who need Herceptin for breast cancer are able to take it The company is still making profits Imagine this five per cent increase to 100 per cent purchase Can the price be reduced by ten times The company would still make profits So it is one-tenth the cost for patient The revenue would be the same But that might just take time In today’s world what we suffer from is I want today’s profits yesterday Anil D’Cruz: But also of 100 drugs that are invested in 85 never make it to the market So investments in several drugs are made and companies try to make profit from other drugs But I think there should be a drug-pricing control in global pharma Some are very overpriced and totally out of reach of the common man I also want drug companies to research in stage-wise fashion Combining my researched molecule with another one’s molecule may answer solutions to a larger jigzaw puzzle They research independently Sadaf Modak: Government’s spending on healthcare is very low Is that a big hurdle Rajendra Badwe: It is a hurdle But government is putting effort In the National Health Policy there is an increase from 15 per cent to 34 per cent in spending for healthcare Shivani Naik: Do you see a cure to cancer in future not to contain it but to completely cure it Rajendra Badwe: Cancer is curable Thyroid cancer is 90 per cent curable Cancer was the most pessimistic branch before it is not anymore We have 60 to 90 per cent cure rates in certain cancers diagnosed early There is a perception that cancer is incurable and diabetes and hypertension is The death rate starts rising 10 and 20 years after diagnosis of diabetes or hypertension But in case of cancer death happens after three to five years So there is a perception difference that diabetes or hyptertension doesn’t kill that much Shivani Naik: When you hear of discovery by quacks of cancer getting cured how do you deal with it Rajendra Badwe: If there is a robust research to prove it is curing cancer then we can look at it We need evidence-based treatment There aren’t cures that have been systematically looked at Anil D’Cruz: Many people ask why you can’t cure cancer It is a complex disease No two cancers are same There is no one-cure for this disease Only lifestyle can be controlled to some extent We are in an era of evidence So for ayurveda or homeopathic solutions to cancer we need evidence There is research ongoing We are not averse to mixing two forms of medicines but we need evidence Tabassum Barnagarwala: Is there enough funding to have research or clinical trials in ayurveda or homeopathy Anil D’Cruz: Research funding in India for cancer is much less than in West not just for ayurveda but for any other medicine form Rajendra Badwe: There is a Ministry of Ayush that is funding research in ayurveda For allopathic drugs only companies put money not government But for allopathic research there is a fair bit of money Priyanka Sahoo: Do you think detection is a bigger problem or treatment in tackling cancer Rajendra Badwe: A bit of both There is not much awareness There is delay in diagnosing common cancers The screening process has not yet reached grassroots And there is no uniformity in treatment across the country Anil D’Cruz: A guy in a small town does not have good quality access to treatment Several people who travel to our hospital don’t complete their treatment because they burn their resources entirely Dipti Singh: Where do we stand when it comes to cancer which is genetically related Rajendra Badwe: Not more than 2-3 per cent of total cancer is inherited The thought that mutation is cause of cancer it is a minority In solid tumour with every division a new mutation occurs Ninety-eight per cent cancers are multi-clonal At the moment there is no clinical evidence that knowing mutations in recurrent diseases has single cure Anil D’Cruz: But you also have avenue for future research and scope of personalised medicines They pinch something from your tumour and something from my tumour to treat Personalised medicine research for this is going on But there are no results yet Benita Chacko: We are seeing vaccination for cervical cancer is that beneficial Can that help Rajendra Badwe: If there is a single organism and identified that it is cause for a disease then yes vaccination may work As far as efficacy of cervical vaccine is concerned there is no healthcare facility that is not cash-trap We should be judicious to utilise money for it If I start cervical vaccination today efficacy of it if at all will be seen after 25 years There is no evidence that it cures cancer
