An expensive, cutting-edge therapy touted by the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center is being assailed for increasing the very problem it claims to reduce - side effects… The study was also criticized in statements by the head of the National Association for Proton Therapy and officials at the Mayo Clinic and the University of Florida, both of which have proton centers. All warned that the study's design, looking back on large numbers of patients, cannot take into account other factors that might affect outcomes.
