Over 3000 patients were treated at the Neutron Therapy Facility (NTF) between September 7, 1976 and April 2013.

Neutrons are more effective at killing tumors than conventional radiation therapy. Cure rate depends on the type of cells in the tumor (histology), the size of the tumor (stage and/or grade), whether the tumor has spread to other parts of the body (metastasis), and the patient's general health.

The Neutron Therapy Facility at Fermilab was possible because of a unique alliance between the Fermi Research Alliance (FRA) and a medical provider.
