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 boronophenylalanine-fructose (900 mg/kg body weight), administered by intravenous infusion for 6 h. Results - Median survival time from initial diagnosis was 22… CONTINUE READING
