Table 2 Boron concentrations in blood, tumor and skin/mucosa of each patient

From: Boron neutron capture therapy for vulvar melanoma and genital extramammary Paget’s disease with curative responses

Case number Boron concentration (ppm)
Blooda Tumorb Skin/mucosab
1 15.0 45.0 18.0
2 18.0 48.6 21.6
3 11.0 27.5 13.2
4 10.0 25.0 12.0
  1. aDetermined by prompt gamma activation analysis [31]
  2. bCalculated by multiplying blood boron concentration by tumor/blood or normal tissue/blood ratio
