Northern Illinois Proton Center on the Verge of Major Medical Breakthrough

lty Foundation's Department of Radiation Oncology.  These have appeared in scientific, engineering, and medical journals.  A complete listing is available on NIPTRC's website at www.niptrc.org.

"The knowledge gained about proton therapy from several of our applied clinical research projects has proven to be beneficial to our clinical practice," said Newhauser.  "It is abundantly clear to me that NIPTRC's generous support is key to our collaboration and to the progression of the education of several of our best students and post docs.  We will continue to strive to create new research and training opportunities for students, faculty, and staff in order to fulfill the mission of NIPTRC."

One research project examined the second cancer risk associated with whole-body exposure to stray neutron radiation from proton therapy.  This risk is especially important to assess in pediatric cancer cases because they are highly susceptible to second cancers.  Research has already established the overall risk of second cancers with traditional photon radiation at about 55 percent and IMRT photon radiation at 31 percent.  Proton therapy brings this down to around 5 percent but questions remained about stray neutron radiation.
