The Heavy Ion Cancer Therapy Facility HICAT [1] proposed for the clinic in Heidelberg will contain three treatment rooms-one treatment room will be equipped with a fixed horizontal beam line and two treatment rooms will contain heavy ion gantries. In parallel to the design of the accelerator facility, the heavy ion gantries were subject of detailed studies(More)
Clinical Trials In 2000 three Carbon beam blocks were used to treat 32 patients suffering from skull base tumors such as chordomas, chondrosarcomas, ade-noid cystic carcinomas and other less frequent indications. Partially these ongoing clinical trials have reached phase II level. In total 73 patients have been treated within this experimental programme and(More)
After partially completing the upgrade program of SIS18, the number of intermediate charge state heavy ions accelerated to the FAIR booster energy of 200 MeV/u, could be increased by a factor of 70. The specific challenge for the SIS18 booster operation is the high cross section for ionization of the intermediate charge state heavy ions, in combination with(More)
Since 1990, when Cave A was put into operation, it was used by the GSI Biophysics group as well as many external groups for a large number of irradiation experiments. Cave A is still equipped with the prototype of a rasterscan system which was thoroughly tested and optimized, resulting in a highly reliable irradiation system [1]. These developments and(More)
For the clinic in Heidelberg/Germany an accelerator facility is proposed for the treatment of cancer tumours with light ions using the 'intensity controlled rasterscan' method [1]. The layout of the synchrotron is presented, that is designed to accelerate carbon ions from an injection energy of 7 MeV/u up to a maximal extraction energy of 430 MeV/u,(More)
Starting in 1997 nearly 60 patients have been successfully treated by means of the intensity controlled rasterscan-method within the GSI experimental cancer treatment program. The developments and experiences of this program accompanied by intensive discussions with the medical community led to a proposal for a hospital based light ion accelerator facility(More)
BACKGROUND Dental stem cells in combination with implant materials may become an alternative to autologous bone transplants. For tissue engineering different types of soft and rigid implant materials are available, but little is known about the viability and the osteogenic differentiation of dental stem cells on these different types of materials. According(More)
