The results of this study provide a reference for other clinicians or radiation oncologists conducting BNCT treatment for such patients.
Accelerator-driven neutron sources have been developed worldwide for boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) instead of nuclear reactors.
Background and purpose: Boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) can be performed without reactors due to development of cyclotron-based epithermal neutron source (C-BENS), which is optimized for treatment for deeper-seated tumors.
As glioma stem cells are chemo- and radio-resistant, they could be the origins of recurrent malignant glioma. Boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) is a tumor-selective particle radiation therapy. 10B(n,α)7Li capture reaction produces alpha particles whose short paths (5–9 µm) lead to selective killing of tumor cells.
A 52-year-old woman was diagnosed with leftparietalglioblastoma, and underwent craniotomy with near total tumor removal on October 11th, 2017.
Our aim was to assess the long-term clinical outcome of boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) using 10B-paraboronophenylalanine (BPA) as the boron delivery agent for cutaneous melanoma.
A 39-year-old man had received boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) for a grade II astrocytoma (compatible with diffuse astrocytoma, not otherwise specified in the WHO 2016 criteria).
