RaySearch Enters Into The Field Of Boron Neutron Capture Therapy

Monday, 6th November 2017 – Danvers, Massachusetts and Stockholm, Sweden.  RaySearch and Neutron Therapeutics, Inc., based in Danvers, US, have entered into an agreement regarding treatment planning for boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT), which is a unique type of radiation therapy that enables targeting of cancer at the cellular level.

BNCT uses a two-step process. First, the patient is injected with a tumor-localizing drug containing the non-radioactive isotope boron-10. In the second step, the target area is exposed to a beam of low-energy neutrons, many of which are absorbed by the boron-10. The absorption initiates a reaction in which short-range, high-energy charged particles are emitted. These particles systematically destroy the tumor cells, with minimal damage to adjacent healthy tissue. > READ MORE

Novel Accelerator-Based BNCT Suite to be Delivered to a top European Cancer Hospital

Thursday, 15th September, 2016 – Danvers, Massachusetts and Helsinki, Finland – Neutron Therapeutics, Inc (NTI) and Helsinki University Hospital (HUH) have entered into an arrangement whereby HUH Cancer Center acquires a nuBeam suite for boron-neutron capture therapy (BNCT). nuBeam is a compact accelerator based neutron source which can be installed in a hospital environment. Under the arrangement NTI and HUH will collaborate in developing BNCT towards clinical use in a number of cancer indications. A biologically targeted form of radiation therapy, BNCT has previously been applied by the HUH in the treatment of severe cancer cases using a research nuclear reactor as the neutron source.    > READ MORE
