Patients Receiving Radiotherapy For Lung Cancer

The researches find that the Patients undergoing radiation for non-small cell lung cancer at the time of a hurricane disaster declaration demonstrated shorter OS than patients who completed treatment under normal conditions, according to a research letter published in JAMA. “Radiation therapy is particularly problematic during disasters because it is dependent on electricity, requires the presence…

Novel Therapy Administered After TBI Prevents

The researches find that the The novel therapy increases the activity of “M-type” KCNQ potassium ion channels, which are proteins that can halt uncontrolled electrical currents in nerve cells. Abnormal currents begin immediately after a TBI; even before a seizure has a chance to occur, and the therapy aims to counteract this; thus nipping in…

Synergistic Radio-Photothermal Therapy Against Cancer

The researches find that the Bismuth-containing nanoparticles (BNPs) are potential enhancers for tumor radiotherapy. Improving the bioavailability and developing synergistic therapeutic regimens benefit the drug transformation of BNPs. In the present study, we prepare a mesoporous silica-coated bismuth nanorod (BMSNR) camouflaged by a platelet membrane (PM). This biomimetic material is termed. Therefore The PM camouflage…

Mammography Screenings Aren’t The Best Option for Female

The researches find that the childhood cancers who have been treated with thoracic radiation, such as survivors of Hodgkin’s lymphoma (HL); have a higher risk of developing breast cancer later in life compared to the general population. To mitigate this risk, current guidelines in Ontario recommend that female HL survivors undergo annual mammography and MRI…

Oral Mucositis Cause by Radiation Therapy

The researchers and clinicians has agreed that light therapy is among the most effective interventions for the prevention of oral mucositis, painful ulcers in the mouth resulting from cancer therapy. Therefore The new guidelines from the Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer (MASCC) and International Society of Oral Oncology (ISOO); but  present a significant…

Artificial Intelligence to Deliver Personalized Radiation Therapy

The researches find that the artificial intelligence (AI) can use medical scans and health records to personalize the dose of radiation therapy used to treat cancer patients. Published in The Lancet Digital Health; the research team developed an AI framework based on patient computerized tomography (CT); scans and electronic health records. Therefore This new AI framework is…

Cancer Patients Have no Choice About Radioactive Iodine

The study find that the thyroid cancer surgery, many patients should be in the position of deciding with their doctors whether to pursue treatment with radioactive iodine to help ease long-term follow-up and offer reassurance that the cancer is gone. A new survey by researchers at the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center ;and U-M…

Trial in Rectal Cancer Chemoradiation First

Patients with locally advanced rectal cancer are more likely to achieve a pathologic complete response (pCR) if they are given chemoradiotherapy before chemotherapy as part of preoperative total neoadjuvant therapy (TNT); conclude German investigators. The findings come from a randomized phase 2 “pick the winner” trial; known as CAO/ARO/AIO-12; that compared two TNT sequences based on…

Carbon Ion Radiotherapy with Separation Surgery

Treatment of primary spinal/paraspinal sarcoma (PSPS) is one of the most challenging issues in the felde of orthopedic surgery. A previous report showed that conventional radiotherapy at a dose of 50–60 Gy was insufcient for long-term locoregional control (LRC); of certain PSPS such as chordoma. Recently, several new radiation modalities; including carbon-ion radio therapy (CIRT),…

Germans Use Spectroscopy to Cut Beam-Range Uncertainty

The researches find that the Measuring the energy of gamma rays emitted during helium-ion radiotherapy could provide real-time verification of the beam’s range in the patient. Researchers in Germany and Portugal have demonstrated a spectroscopy unit that can spot the signatures of 19 distinct nuclear transitions that occur when helium ions interact with various atomic…

Technique Using a Tetrahedral-Mesh Phantom Radiotherapy

The researches find that the Incorrect prediction of skin dose in external beam radiotherapy (EBR) can have normal tissue complication such as acute skin desquamation and skin necrosis. Therefore The absorb dose of skin should be measure within a 50–100 m skin layer; place between the epidermis and dermis layers. However; current treatment planning systems…

Proton Therapy is Effective as Full Courses Prostate Cancer

The researches find that the prostate cancer with higher doses of proton therapy over a shorter amount of time leads to similar outcomes when compared to standard dose levels and treatments and is safe for patients, according to a new study examining the risk of long-term side-effects from the treatment. Researchers in the Perelman School…
