Paper Abstract

We present results on surgical technique, neutron filed and irradiation facility concerning the original treatment of the liver diffused metastases. Our method plans to irradiate the isolated organ at a thermal neutron field soon after having been explanted and boron enriched and before being grafted into the same donor. In particular the crucial point of boron uptake was investigated by a rat model with a relevant number of procedure. We give for the first time statistically significant results on the selective boron absorption by tumor tissues.
