Fluorescence and Reactive oxygen Intermediates by Neutron Generated electronic Excitation as a foundation for radically new cancer therapies

Project description

A radical neutron therapy for difficult to reach cancers

When cancer is mentioned, we often think of chemotherapy. However, radiotherapy has been a powerful weapon for over a century, employing high doses of ionising radiation to kill cancer cells, or slow down their growth by damaging their DNA. Neutron-based therapies that work primarily through nuclear interactions, have been used to treat radioresistant tumours, but lack cancer-specificity. This may induce damage to healthy tissues and cause new carcinogenesis. Photomedical therapies use light to trigger lethal reactions between light-sensitive compounds and oxygen, targeting cancerous cells. Nevertheless, they lack sufficient penetration depth to reach deep-seated cancers. The EU-funded project FRINGE is developing a new therapeutic approach combining the best of both worlds.
