UK trial starts on breast cancer treatment:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

A clinical trial to evaluate whether a single, intra-operative treatment for breast cancer can replace the conventional six weeks of external beam radiation therapy is to begin at the Middlesex Hospital in London, UK. The study will use Photoelectron's Photon Radiosurgery System (PRS) to deliver, immediately after surgical removal of the tumour, one single dose of intense, low-energy radiation intra-operatively to the inside of the tumour cavity. It is expected that other US and European centres will also participate in the trial, according to Lexington, Massachusetts-based Photoelectron.
