On November the 12th at 12.00, at the Italian National Nuclear Physics Institute Headquarters, piazza dei Caprettari 70 in Rome, the collaboration agreement between Cnao foundation (Adrotherapy Oncological National Centre) and Infn will be signed. The agreement represents a basic step towards the construction in Italy of an innovative adrotherapy centre in which it will be possible treating also cancers of deep localisation.
A meeting between press and participants will follow the signature; in particular, there will be the speeches of the President of Cnao Erminio Borloni and the President of Infn Enzo Iarocci.

“The agreement between Cnao and Infn makes the second jointly responsible in the realisation of the project of the Italian adrotherapy centre construction,” explains Erminio Borloni, “It is a fundamental step, as the Institute owns the experience and the technical skills required to realise the particles accelerator, which is an essential instrument in adrotherapy. Once this priority agreement is established, other agreements will be stipulated, for example with the Polytechnic and the University of Milan, with the University of Pavia and with Cern, in Geneva. The operating plans, which have been accurately respected up today, foresee that the Adrotherapy centre will start working by October 2007”.

The Italian centre represents a challenge from the point of view of the application of fundamental research results in physics to other disciplines. Our goal is currently to treat tumours with carbon ions, through which it is possible to obtain an extremely precise beam, able to get and hit tumours settled 27-28 centimetres deep. There is only another centre today in the world, where carbon ions are used in adrotherapy, and it is in Japan. Therefore, the main focus is to realise a prototype machine, without employing instruments already in use in other adrotherapy centres. “It is an effort that Infn accepts with enthusiasm, making available an experience of over 50 years in particles accelerators construction”, says Enzo iarocci, “Cnao project is an excellent example of a well accomplished interaction between basic and applied research: it is the result of many years of research and it offers our country the opportunity to provide itself with a high technology centre for the treatment of tumours.
