The evaluation of possible improvement in the use of Gd in cancer therapy, in reference to gadolinium in cancer therapy (GdNCT), has been analysed. At first the problem of the gadolinium compounds toxicity was reviewed identifying the Motexafin Gadolinium as the best. Afterwards, the spectrum of IC and Auger electrons was calculated using a special method. Afterwards, this electron source has been used as input of the PENELOPE code and the energy deposit in DNA was well defined. Taking into… CONTINUE READING
