The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta WadrtMday, January 9, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 11 3: Britain expands cancer 'gun'treatment program LONDON Britain is to expand its experimental program of treating some can- cer victims with a neutron "gun" a field in which it says it leads the world, it nounced Tuesday. The gun is a cyclotron that produces a beam of fast neut- rons. These uncharged, sub- atomic particles carry much more energy than x-rays or gamma rays, also used in can- cer therapy, and are proving ef- fective in treating patients whose condition is considered beyond help by conventional treatment. But so far only a limited range of cancers can be treated in this way. More than 300 patients have been treated with fast neutrons at London's Hammersmith Hos- pital since the first cyclotron in yr- Girls' Wear the world to be entirely devoted to medical research was in- stalled there in 1952. All were considered incurable by surgery or drugs and were given only weeks to live. But after neutron treatment, about 25 per cent of the first 238 patients survived for between one and four years before suc- cumbing to secondary tumors- meaning the cancer must have Men's Wear spread before treatment. A few are still alive. Now a second, smaller cyclot- ron costing million is to be installed at Western General Hospital in Edinburgh as part of the same program. Announcing this as "a major new the govern- ment's Medical Research Coun- cil said the second machine will mean more patients can be H f f-'-n treated and trials can be started on a range of different types of cancer for which the design -of the Hammersmith cyclotron is thought to be unsuitable. "A great deal of interest iln neutron therapy is being shoura throughout the tltie council said. "In the Unitisd States, a number of new centnss are being set up to carry out trials and other centres will lie established in France, (Wes t) Boys Wear Germany, the Netherlands and Japan." But the Edinburgh cyclotron "should enable the United King- dom to maintain its lead in this field." The Hammersmith cyclotron has so far proved most effective in treating cancers of the face, mouth and throat. Surgical treatment of these cases often damages the nerves and causes disfigurement. Neutron treatment can also save cancerous limbs. But the Medical Research Council stressed: "Neutron therapy is still in the ex- perimental stage and, while the initial results are most encour- aging, a long-term clinical eval- uation such as is planned at Edinburgh (and will continue at Hammersmith) needs to be un- dertaken before any final as- sessment can be made."
