We have advanced Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT) as a combination modality between boron compounds and epithermal neutrons produced by a moderation process of high energy neutrons generated in a research reactor. It was clearly shown that BNCT was applicable to malignant recurrent tumors with good quality of life for patient. However, it is difficult to commonly use and construct research reactor as medical device. Therefore, we have developed accelerator-base epithermal neutron source. In order to establish as approved medical, we promote the research of BNCT.
