Abstract

Results of therapy in 31 of 50 patients who were treated for advanced pancreatic carcinoma at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory are presented here. To date, six patients are alive and four are free of disease. Since the main reason for failure was lack of control of primary tumor, the tumor dose has been increased by 15 %. Based on our results, a nationwide study has been launched to assess the effectiveness of neutrons vs. photons in the treatment of locally advanced pancreatic carcinoma.
