For this Workshop, the organizers have tried to ask specialists from all recognized facilities that are engaged in neutron beam improvement for neutron catch treatment. The Workshop was once designed round a sequence of 19 invited papers which handled neutron resource layout and improvement and beam characterization and function. Emphasis was once put on epithermal beams simply because they give medical benefits and are tougher to enforce than thermal beams. Fission reactor resources have been the foundation for almost all of the papers; even if 3 papers handled accelerator neutron resources. an extra 3 invited papers supplied a precis of scientific result of Ncr treatment in Japan among 1968 and 1989 and overviews of medical issues for neutron trap remedy and of the prestige of tumor concentrating on chemical brokers for Ncr. 5 contributed poster papers facing NCT beam layout and function have been additionally awarded. A rapporteurs' paper was once ready after the Workshop to aim to summarize the foremost points, concerns, and conclusions which resulted from this Workshop. many of us contributed to either the sleek functioning of the Workshop and to the coaching of those complaints. distinctive thank you are reserved for Ms. Dorothy K.

The 1st single-topic annual convention on hepatology in Japan was once held in November 2002 to debate treatments for viral hepatitis and the prevention of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Bringing jointly researchers and clinicians from North the US, Europe, Japan, and different components of Asia, the convention incorporated symposia at the hepatitis C replicon procedure, new antivirals that decrease or hinder the occurrence of HCC, and transplantation in situations of hepatitis B and C, in addition to new remedy modalities for viral hepatitis and preventative measures for HCC.
