Dr.T.Rajkumar Recipient of Kobayashi Award
Dr. T. Rajkumar is the Head of Department of Molecular Oncology at the Cancer Institute Foundation in Adyar, Chennai.
Recently, he was awarded the Kobayashi Foundation Award for Cancer Research. Dr. Rajkumar's research has provided
new levels of understanding on drug resistance in aggressive bone cancer among children and adolescents,
known as Osteosarcomas. It is hoped that this research will not only help people suffering from bone cancer,
but also those suffering from breast cancer.
He used for his research two types of cell lines - drug sensitive and drug resistant cells.
He studied how the drug resistant mutant varied from the drug sensitive cells, and specifically how they reacted with
the osteosarcoma cancer cells.
As recently as thirty years ago, there was no cure for aggressive bone tumours. When encountered,
doctors were left with no choice but to remove the limbs, and even then the survival rates were less than 20 percent.
The Cancer Institute then introduced a concept of limb conservation using custom made prosthesis,
and this increased the cure rate to around 60%.

Dr.S.Krishnamurthy (1919-2010) Doyen of Oncology
Rarely do we see people who are filled with passion, and are directing all their energies towards their passion.
One such man was Dr. S.Krishnamurthy. He made it his mission in life to provide quality cancer care to the poor in India.
His life was purposeful and totally dedicated to science and cancer care.
Born to Dr. Muthulakshmi (the first Woman medical graduate) and
Sundara Reddy, Dr. Krishnamurthy was educated in India and abroad.
"There is enough wealth in our nation to perpetuate an evil and vicious caste of high priest;
there is generosity enough to thrust memorials on men whose very lives were lived to demonstrate their emptiness;
there is enough humanity to make a fetish and fashion of Ahimsa, but there is neither money nor wealth nor generosity
nor humanity to build a home for the poor sufferers of cancer. I think it is time we transferred a little of our Ahimsa
from our books to our lives." - Dr.S.Krihnamurthy
