Neutron capture therapy NCT is a nonsurgical therapeutic modality for treating locally invasive malignant tumors such as primary brain tumors , recurrent head and neck cancer , and cutaneous and extracutaneous melanomas. It is a two-step procedure: first , the patient is injected with a tumor-localizing drug containing the non-radioactive isotope boron 10 B , which has a high propensity to capture thermal neutrons.
Boron Neutron Capture Therapy - A Literature Review
Boron neutron capture therapy BNCT is a selective radiation treatment for tumors that preferentially accumulate drugs carrying the stable boron isotope, 10 B. BNCT has been evaluated clinically as an alternative to conventional radiation therapy for the treatment of brain tumors, and more recently, recurrent advanced head and neck cancer. Here we investigated the effect of BNCT on prostate cancer PCa using an in vivo mouse xenograft model that we have developed. We compared xenograft growth among these groups, and the body weight and any motility disturbance were recorded. The in vivo studies demonstrated that BPA-mediated BNCT significantly delayed tumor growth in comparison with the other groups, without any severe adverse events. There was a significant difference in the rate of freedom from gait abnormalities between the BPA-mediated BNCT group and the other groups.

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. NCT is exciting scientifically but challenging clinically, and a key factor in success is close collaboration among very different disciplines. This book provides a comprehensive summary of the progress made in NCT in recent years. Individual sections cover all important aspects, including neutron sources, boron chemistry, drugs for NCT, dosimetry, and radiation biology. The use of NCT in a variety of malignancies and also some non-malignant diseases is extensively discussed. NCT is clearly shown to be a promising modality at the threshold of wider clinical application.

Neutron capture therapy of cancer
Boron carbide enriched with 10 B isotope 10 B 4 C was synthesized by simple and low cost solvothermal method. Structural, morphological and optical analysis has been done. Hexagonal phase of the synthesized material show emission in visible region and makes it a promising material for cancer diagnosis. Cytotoxicity analysis has been done to analyze its suitability for biomedical applications. This is a preview of subscription content, access via your institution. Rent this article via DeepDyve.
Since its first description, boron neutron capture therapy BNCT was a special type of radiotherapy for treatment of cancer and with focus mainly on glioma therapeutic. This procedure requires the selective accumulation of boron into the tumoral cells, and due to this requirement, different boron-enriched compounds have been designed and developed. Efforts to circumvent the selectivity-uptake challenge and other problems, such as solubility, stability, and toxicity, have been to driving force behind the medicinal chemistry field in boron-based compounds. In this regard, a wide diversity of medicinal chemistry hypothesis has been used to obtain new and efficient potential BNCT-glioma drugs. In this chapter, these ideas are analyzed focusing on their medicinal chemistry characteristics. Glioma - Contemporary Diagnostic and Therapeutic Approaches.
Neutron Capture Therapy
Boron Neutron Capture Therapy BNCT is a radiation science which is emerging as a hopeful tool in treating cancer, by selectively concentrating boron compounds in tumour cells and then subjecting the tumour cells to epithermal neutron beam radiation. The most exclusive property of BNCT is that it can deposit an immense dose gradient between the tumour cells and normal cells. BNCT integrates the fundamental focusing perception of chemotherapy and the gross anatomical localization proposition of traditional radiotherapy. There is an increase in oral cancer burden day by day.
