High Dose Radiation Therapy Improves Long Term Survival In Patients

The first report from a phase II, multi-center clinical trial indicates that a newer, more aggressive form of radiation therapy stereotactic radiation can extend long-term survival for some patients with stage-IV cancers while maintaining their quality of life. because The study is publishe in the January issue of International Journal of Radiation Oncology * Biology * Physics (Red Journal);…

High-Dose Radiation Therapy Improves Survival In Patients With Stage-IV Cancers

Radiation therapy stereotactic radiation—can extend long-term survival for some patients with stage-IV cancers while maintaining their quality of life. The study is published in the January issue of International Journal of Radiation Oncology * Biology * Physics (Red Journal), the flagship scientific journal of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO). Radiation therapy “Despite many advances in cancer care over the last…

Effects of Radiotherapy in Early-Stage, Low-Recurrence Risk

Radiotherapy after breast conservation has become the standard of care. Prior meta-analyses on the effects of radiotherapy predated availability of gene expression profiling (GEP) to assess recurrence risk and/or did not include all relevant outcomes. This analysis used GEP information with pooled individual-level data to evaluate the impact of omitting radiotherapy on recurrence and mortality.…

The Risks Of Radiotherapy In Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

Combined modality therapy is standard of care for patients with inoperable locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), however, insufficient data exist regarding what chemoradiotherapy combination will be the gold standard. The study aimed to compare the survival impact and side effects of concurrent versus sequential radiochemotherapy treatment in inoperable stage III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
