The unmet need

Despite improvements in cancer outcomes, there is still a high unmet clinical need for effective treatments


Why BNCT?

Cytotoxic drugs, traditional radiation therapies and immunotherapies are limited in their effectiveness and can result in adverse side effects. Boron neutron capture therapy is a precision medicine approach to destroy cancerous cells while leaving healthy cells unharmed.

Highly precise

Together with advanced neutron delivery technologies, BNCT medicines have the ability to precisely target tumors

Potentially fewer treatments

Studies have shown that BNCT has the potential to destroy tumors in fewer treatments compared to other modalities

Low intrinsic toxicity

Boron medicines are designed to be non-toxic and are only activated by safe, low-energy neutrons at the site of the tumor

BNCT centers worldwide

Today, there are 33 BNCT centers around the world. Aviko is working together with its partners to expand BNCT as a treatment modality and establish the first BNCT site in the U.S.
