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

China’s peer-to-peer (P2P) lending industry will continue to shrink and cons
olidate due to tighter regulation and weak investor sentiment, Fitch Ratings said in a report.
The number of P2P investors and platforms declined steeply last year after regulators tightened supervision, and Fitch exp
ect more platforms to close or consolidate this year as reforms continue to take effect, leading to a smaller, less fragmented market.
Stronger regulation of P2P companies will be positive over the lo
nger term for a sector that has yet to be tested through economic cycles, the report said.
New regulations will also require many platforms to reduce their
reliance on retail investors, leading to a shift toward wholesale or institutional funding sources.
Lenders with more robust business models, established risk-management capabil
ities and more stable access to funding are likely to gain market share, according to Fitch.
