Polish researchers to improve the effectiveness of boron-neutron therapy for cancer


Universities and research units from all over Poland are working on an innovative methodology that will improve the clinical effectiveness of boron neutron therapy for cancer. The results of the work will be the basis for new products and services for cancer clinics on a global scale.

The consortium includes: Gdańsk University of Technology, National Center for Nuclear Research in Świerk, Rzeszów University of Technology, Oncology Center in Bydgoszcz, AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow, Jagiellonian University in Krakow, University of Humanities and Sciences in Częstochowa, Military University of Technology in Warsaw, Medical University of Lodz, as well as the facilities of the Polish Academy of Sciences – Institute of Immunology and Experimental Therapy in Wrocław, Institute of Medical Biology in Łódź and Institute of Nuclear Physics in Krakow.

Boron-neutron therapy is a complex form of targeted radiotherapy, capable of treating certain cancers that cannot be treated by other methods.
