Thanks to a donation of 55,000 euros from the Group of Monegasque companies in the fight against cancer, the CHPG has been able to finance a radio-frequency generator which makes it possible to treat pancreatic tumours, during an echo-endoscopy performed orally, so avoiding a surgical operation that can be too demanding for elderly or frail patients.

The new equipment for digestive endoscopy oncology treatment, funded by GEMLUC, was inaugurated at the Princess Grace Hospital in the presence of HRH the Princess of Hanover, Didier Gamerdinger, Minister of Social Affairs and Health, André Garino, Chairman of the Board of Directors of CHPG, Benoîte de Sevelinges, Director of CHPG, François-Jean Brych, President of GEMLUC as well as representatives of the association and Doctors Rémy Dumas (Head of Department ) Antoine Charachon (Deputy Head of Department) and Jean-François Demarquay (Deputy Head of Department) of the Digestive Endoscopies Department.
