    About Neutron Therapeutics. Neutron Therapeutics is a medical equipment company founded in November We are working to bring Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT) out of the realm of medical research and transform it into a widely available first-line cancer therapy. We see BNCT as an enabling tool for oncologists in the near future. Neutron capture is a nuclear reaction in which an atomic nucleus and one or more neutrons collide and merge to form a heavier nucleus. Since neutrons have no electric charge, they can enter a nucleus more easily than positively charged protons, which are repelled electrostatically.. Neutron capture plays an important role in the cosmic nucleosynthesis of heavy elements.

" the two volumes are required reading for all investigators working in this field, and all clinicians considering initiating trials of neutron capture therapy (NCT).

These volumes provide the data describing the current and planned facilities, and indicate the many difficulties that the clinical investigator may face "Format: Hardcover.

Neutron capture therapy has largely, but not exclusively, focused on the use of boron as the target nuclide. Boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) is based on the nuclear reaction that occurs when the stable isotope, boron, absorbs low-energy non­ ionizing thermal neutrons to yield alphaparticles and recoiling lithium-7 nuclei.

Introduction Neutron capture therapy (NCT) is based on the ability of the non-radioactive isotope boron to capture thermal neutrons with very high probability and immediately to release heavy particles with a path length of one cell diameter.

This in principle allows for tumor cell-selective high-LET particle radiotherapy. Neutron capture therapy (NCT) also offers a highly selective therapy for certain cancers.

These two companion texts, appearing on the 50th anniversary of the medical application of neutrons, bring together expert contributions on both BNCT and NCT and considers the most recent research on these important therapies, including such techniques as the use of monoclonal antibodies for boron delivery.

Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT) is a type of radiation therapy that has the potential to target malignant tissue at the cellular level. The sparing of healthy tissue could eliminate the need for fractionation, allowing treatment protocols to be carried out in as little as a single session.

Frontiers in Neutron Capture Therapy contains current research results originally presented at the Eighth International Symposium on Neutron Capture Therapy for Cancer in La Jolla, CA.

This comprehensive collection of peer-reviewed manuscripts is showcased in two volumes covering all aspects of the development of this multidisciplinary approach to cancer therapy.

Objectives Boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) is a nuclear reaction-based tumor cell-selective particle irradiation that occurs when nonradioactive Boron is irradiated with low-energy neutrons to produce high-energy α particles (10B [ n, α] 7Li).Possible complications associated with extended surgical resection render high-grade meningioma (HGM) a challenging pathology and skull.

About this book.Abstract This report describes early research on neutron capture therapy over a number of years, beginning inspeaking briefly of patient treatments but dwelling mostly on interpretations of our animal experiments.

This work carried out over eighteen years, beginning over forty years ago. Neutron capture therapy was first investigated in patients with malignant glioma from to at Brookhaven National Laboratories and at MIT.

These trials used non selective boric acid derivatives and inadequate thermal neutron sources. The Japanese began clinical trials in using the somewhat more tumor-selective compound BSH.
