Busi­ness­man and kid­ney can­cer pa­tient, he’s on a new tar­geted ther­apy

The life and soul of ev­ery party, it came as a shock to all when he was di­ag­nosed, in course of a rou­tine check-up. Af­ter rounds of surgery and chemo­ther­apy, his doc­tors at the Ra­jiv Gandhi Can­cer In­sti­tute, Delhi, and Tata Med­i­cal Cen­tre, Kolkata, put him on a new tar­geted ther­apy: small mol­e­cule pill, Pa­zopanib. De­spite some side ef­fects, his can­cer is now sta­ble. “I am ac­tive and thriv­ing,” says the man who re­cently took part in a neigh­bour­hood cricket match and won a tro­phy.
