BNCT Taiwan Inc. is a company founded in June 2014, working to transform BNCT into a widely available first-line cancer therapy. Company signed an agreement with Japan CSI Inc. for transferring the neutron source technology to Taiwan. Japan CSI Inc. is developing an in-hospital neutron source equipment for replacing nuclear reactor. This equipment is made with the most advanced material which endures high-frequency switching. With this technology, the equipment generates high-throughput of thermal neutron and shorten the treatment time to 20 minutes. This greatly increases the number of treatments per year and greatly reduces the equipment size so that we can package the equipment with all of the necessary components for BNCT into an existing hospital unit. The expanse for acquiring precious hospital space and the building construction fee and the construction time is therefore reduced by 3 folds.
In order to accommodate Taiwanese laws for importing pre-FDA cleared equipments, company will ship the equipment by parts and re-install into a system in Taiwan by 2018. CSI Inc. will train BNCT Taiwan on machine operation and maintenance. In the meantime company will conduct the necessary clinical trials to make BNCT available to more patients. Dr. Yen and Dr. Liu have conducted the most compelling clinical tests in the field to date. Both have the experience to leverage all the exciting BNCT progress made by nuclear reactor over the past 10 years. Both have a large database of BNCT doses to use for matching new equipment to perform as a reactor. For radiation substance handling and safety, radiation protection operations, company cooperates with a Technical Team of University in Taiwan. Together our company is confident of completing the medical
certification by 2019. Before the certification, company will carry out clinical treatments on the humanitarian aid base. Company will accept patients from all over the world to expand the randomized tests for completing the certification. Company will cooperate with the domestic hospital to run operation as a BOT project, as by the hospital to provide medical staff and space, company to provide equipment, facility and machine operation with maintenance. Together we carry out the cancer treatment center operations. Company foresees our BNCT project as a long term project. To increase our visibility to public, company currently conducts Chronic Illness Monitoring services in Taiwan for cancer and kidney diseases as seen in the next pages.
