About TheraSphere
TheraSphere is a targeted therapy that consists of millions of glass microspheres containing radioactive yttrium-90. The microspheres are delivered directly to liver tumors through the hepatic artery via catheter and become permanently lodged there. Because the procedure delivers the treatment directly to the liver tumor, the radiation destroys the tumor cells with minimal impact to the surrounding healthy liver tissue. The microspheres continue to deliver radiation to the tumor over the course of several weeks after treatment. Over 20,000 patients worldwide have been treated with TheraSphere.
