ABOUT THERASPHERE®

TheraSphere® 90Y glass microspheres are specifically engineered to carry far greater power than any other 90Y liver-directed cancer therapy, delivering high doses of radiation to liver tumors while sparing normal tissue. 1,2 The result is a powerfully-targeted, well-tolerated therapy that may lead to patients becoming eligible for curative therapies. 3-8

TheraSphere®  is used in transarterial radioembolization (TARE) also known as selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) a procedure in which glass microsheres containing radio active 90Y are delivered to the tumor vasculature via tranfemoral catheterization of the hepatic artery.
