Radiogel Y-90 Device can help companion animal cancer patients

We need help to accelerate the use of Radiogel Y-90 Device. It is a uniquely safe isotope delivery device that can help companion animal cancer patients while they serve as a model that can be translated rapidly to help human cancer patients.

What is the research problem

Inoperable malignant tumors are difficult to manage and their fatal agenda kills people and companion animals every day.
We need help with 5 items in the attachment below to accelerate the use of Radiogel Y-90 Device.

How will your solution make a difference

Radiogel reduces tumors without surgery. There are no adverse events for patients to endure while tumors undergo shrinkage and a second treatment can be given if needed. Radiogel will spare cancer patients with inoperable tumors. See attachment

What is your proposed solution

Radiogel is a novel combination of Yttrium-90 (Y-90) isotope and a polymer, which can be injected into tumors using a fine needle. The cancer patient's body temperature initiates a phase transfer that entraps the isotope within the tumor. Y-90 is a beta emitter with a short half life of 2.7 days. Radiogel Y-90 device provides a new, practical and significantly less expensive, more effective resorbable localized therapy.
