EKOR is a silicon-based geocomposite, which is highly radiation-resistant (unaffected by Alpha-radiation; gamma- and beta-radiation up to an absorbed dose of 10 gigarads), and can be provided in a variety of forms (fixative, foam, sealer or grout) to encapsulate and contain radioactive contamination.
The trials included assessments of safety (hematology and adverse events), survival, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels, bone specific alkaline phosphatase (b-ALP) levels, pain and dosimetry (the calculation of the absorbed dose in tissue resulting from exposure to ionizing radiation).
