Ma and his team put forward an individualized irradiation range and dose standard for radi
otherapy. The result is a clear picture showing high – and low-risk areas, which then allows dose stratification.
In 2014, an atlas of organs at risk in nasopharyngeal cancer patients was published in
Radiotherapy and Oncology. It suggested tailoring both radiation doses and targets, and setting a reco
mmended safety dose for protecting 33 normal organs around the nasopharynx.
Today, the five-year overall survival rate for patients exceeds 80 percent at Sun Yat-sen Uni
versity Cancer Center, while the rate of severe side effects from radiotherapy has dropped by 24 percent.
Ma, who has won China’s National Science and Technology Award twice with his team, is grateful to more than 10,000
patients who have participated in his research, saying their courage is behind the progress in the treatment.

Cannavaro said he sought out the opinion of Lippi, who now serves as an adviser, including player selection.
“The China Cup players are all those who had good performances in the previous rounds of the CSL, along with young players,” said Cannavaro.
“What we need is a sustainable system that will allow the best
coaches all around the world to work here in the future. It’s not a short-term play. It will take time.”
“It’s like building a house－the first job is to build a solid foundation,” he said
“Based on that, we can have success. Compared to Japan and South Korea, their plans started decades ago.
“They are 20 to 25 years ahead of China in terms of their soccer development.”
Another factor was that Cannavaro did not recall China’s best striker, Wu Lei, who is now playing for Espanyol in La Liga.
Other experienced veterans, such as captain Zheng Zhi, were passed over in order to make way for younger players.
Information consumption has become a new engine for China’s economy, playing a vital role in d
riving domestic demand, creating jobs and pushing forward industrial upgrades, People’s Daily reported.
Last year, China’s information consumption rose 11 percent year-on-year to
