Creation of neutron and neutron capture therapy complex centre under MRSC RAMS in Obninsk

The usage of ionizing radiation is one of the basic methods of oncology diseases treatment. In addition to traditional sources and therapeutic schemes search for new approaches for radiotherapy efficiency rise is continued. One of these approaches – the usage of dense ionizing radiation, including neutron stream in complex with target drugs, which provides capture and secondary radiation.
At present time in 20 developed countries neutron therapy is carried out on special medical cyclotrons and accelerators.
There are 40-50 thousand people per year with hard radioresistant forms of cancer in Russia (about 30 %). At present time there are 28 special centers in the world and 3 centers in Russia (Obninsk, Tomsk, Chelyabinsk-Snezhinsk) that provide neutron therapy.
Long-term researches of Medical Radiology Science Centre RAMS and GNC RF Physical Energy Institute showed that generated neutron fascicles may be perspective in clinical and economic cases for radiotherapy.
