The purpose of this study was to assess the potential of boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT), with a 6-h infusion of the boron carrier l-boronophenylalanine as a fructose preparation (BPA-f), as first-line radiotherapy for newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). Patient survival data from a Phase II study using BNCT were compared with retrospective(More)
Objectives - To explore the use of boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) for patients with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), recurring after surgery and conventional radiotherapy (photon radiotherapy). Materials and Methods - Boron uptake in recurrent GBM was measured for four patients. Twelve patients were subsequently treated by BNCT with(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess possible improved efficacy of Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT) for glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) using prolonged infusion and a correspondingly higher dose of l-boronophenylalanine, as the fructose complex (BPA-f). MATERIALS AND METHODS The benefit of prolonged infusion was analyzed by comparing the results from a Phase II study(More)
BACKGROUND Thirty patients with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) were treated by boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) at the Studsvik facility in Sweden, in a clinical trial exploring a procedure in which 900 mg p-boronophenylalanine (BPA) per kilo body weight was infused in 6 h. OBJECTIVE The present study was designed to assess tumor efficacy and radiation(More)
