TAE Life Sciences (TLS), a biological-targeted radiation therapy company developing next-generation boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT), and AIVITA Biomedical, Inc. (AIVITA), a biotech company specializing in innovative stem cell applications, today announced a partnership to address an unmet need in glioblastoma treatment.
TAE Life Sciences (TLS), a biological-targeted radiation therapy company developing next-generation boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT), today announced a partnership with HDX Corporation (HDX) to bring TLS’s targeted radiation therapy to South Korea for the treatment of difficult-to-treat cancers, such as brain, head and neck cancers and melanoma.
TAE Life Sciences (TLS), a biological-targeted radiation therapy company developing next-generation boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT), today announced the publication of a study in the September 22 issue of the Journal of Medical Physics that assessed whether alpha particles generated through the combination of boron target drugs and proton radiation would generate a reaction that would be sufficient to enhance the biological effectiveness of proton therapy in the treatment of prostate cancer.
The session, “New Era in Biologically-Targeted Radiation Therapy: Clinical Application and Technical Advancement in Boron Neutron Capture Therapy” will feature presentations by Timothy Malouff, M.D., Mayo Clinic, Ester Orlandi, M.D., National Center of Oncological Hadrontherapy (CNAO) and Kendall Morrison, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer, TAE Life Sciences. They will discuss the clinical application and technical advancements in BNCT for the treatment of invasive, recurrent and difficult to treat cancers.
During BNCT, it is essential that the patient is positioned accurately in relation to the radiation beam and that the radiation therapist has the ability to adjust the patient’s position throughout the whole treatment session. BEC will be developing a unique chair setup that will allow for flexible patient treatment in a seated position in addition to the traditional treatment couch configuration. Exclusively designed for TLS’ Alphabeam™ Neutron System, the chair is optimal for treating specific types of head and neck cancers.
TLS’ Neutron Beam System enables a new treatment modality for patients diagnosed with the most aggressive and recurrent cancers such as gliomas, head and neck tumors, and melanomas, by delivering more precise, targeted radiation to cancer cells while sparing damage to surrounding healthy tissue. This technique holds promise in treating patients with cancer for whom other treatment options have been exhausted or are unavailable.
“TLS is the only company developing comprehensive, in-house target drugs as well as a neutron technology system called Alphabeam™ to enable the next-generation in biologically targeted radiation therapy. Today’s news brings us closer to our goal of providing new hope to patients with the most difficult to treat cancers,” said Bruce Bauer, PhD, CEO of TAE Life Sciences. “Historically, brain, head and neck, and melanoma cancers have been treated with BNCT and studies have shown improvements in survival compared to other cancer therapies. New boron drugs expand the potential to treat other indications including breast, lung and liver cancers.”
TAE Life Sciences (TLS), a biologically-targeted radiation therapy company developing a breakthrough, accelerator-based boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) system, today announced that it has entered into an agreement with National Center of Oncological Hadrontherapy (CNAO) to provide its Alphabeam™ Neutron System for the treatment of invasive, recurrent and difficult to treat cancers.
TAE Life Sciences (TLS) is a privately-held biotechnology company committed to developing a new biologically-targeted radiation therapy based on Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT). TLS is developing the next generation targeted boron drugs and low-energy accelerator-based neutron source – optimized for an in-hospital BNCT program that can one day treat patients with the most aggressive and recurrent cancers.
