Cutting-edge facility would advance cancer care in pets and people A $300 million carbon-ion radiotherapy facility — the first in the country — is under consideration for Aurora, Colo., to advance treatment of cancer in people and in animals. Carbon ions zero in on malignancies with lethal efficacy while sparing healthy tissue. “It’s clear that our collaboration offers distinct advantages for an international carbon-ion center that would provide truly needed help for animal and human cancer patients,” said veterinarian Mark Stetter, dean of the Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.
