Lanthanide-Enhancers in the Radiotherapy of Cancer

12.11.2012
In Germany alone every year about 400.000 people develop cancer. The radiation ther-apy is widely used as a method of treat-ment. Cancer cells will be harmed more, because they are more sensitive than healthy cells to ionizing radiation. Neverthe-less to reduce the cancer cell growth, sig-nificantly high doses of radiation have to be used. But this leads to unwanted side-effects. Locally acting enhancers can in-crease the radiation, so that the cumulative dose is reduced and at the same time the ionizing effect in the tumor tissue itself is increased. Furthermore the radiation en-hancer should not be toxic for the healthy tissue.
