The Department of Clinical Oncology is involved in close cooperation with the Comprehensive Oncology Center of the Teaching Hospital in Motol. Radiation therapy is carried out in the cooperating facility. In the absence of inpatient ward, the acute care, including ICU care, is ensured by the Department of Internal Medicine of the Na Homolce Hospital. Symptomatic treatment of terminal stages is provided in cooperation with the Institute of Pneumology and Oncology in Pleš. Since 2009, the Department has been involved in multicenter randomized studies of phase II and III. Due to the development of tumor epidemiology in the Czech population, annual growth of 5-7 % of cases may be expected also in the future.
