Present status of fast neutron therapy for the malignant tumors

Journal Article:

Abstract

Fast neutron therapy has been applied to the treatment of cancer of the head and the neck, prostatic cancer, osteosarcoma, and malignant melanoma, and the basic treatment schedule for this therapy for them has been almost established. The effectiveness of this therapy for squamous cell carcinoma of the uterus will be established by the results of future clinical application of this therapy. It is expected that postoperative irradiation of fast neutron will decrease local recurrence of adenocarcinoma of the uterus. Treatment schedule for fast neutron therapy for esophageal cancer and lung cancer must be established, and moreover, it is necessary to apply this therapy to the treatment of gastric and pancreatic cancer.
