Boron Neutron Capture Therapy is a novel technique which is developed in order increase the specificity and target the therapy only to cancer cells and to safe-guard the normal cells. This technique uses boron isotope 10 which has more affinity for cancer cells and as soon as this isotope is taken, it accumulates in the cancerous tissue. This is then exposed to irradiation to the tumor cells by neutrons where boron isotope tends to absorb low energy neutron and short-range alpha an lithium to the subsequent tissues which leads to the killing of cancer cells.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
