Radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery or chemotherapy. Adjuvant radiotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
National Cancer Institute (u.s.)
Component of the NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH. Through basic and clinical biomedical research and training, it conducts and supports research with the objective of cancer prevention, early stage identification and elimination. This Institute was established in 1937.
Tumors or cancer of the ESOPHAGUS.
The total amount of radiation absorbed by tissues as a result of radiotherapy.
The univalent radical OH. Hydroxyl radical is a potent oxidizing agent.
BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to assess the long-term outcomes of combining high-dose-rate intraluminal brachytherapy (IBT) with external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) for superficial esophageal ca...
The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy and prognostic factors of definitive radiochemotherapy (RCT) for inoperable esophageal cancer. Between 1995 and 2005 all patients with inoperable esoph...
Radiotherapy with concurrent chemotherapy and surgery represent the main treatment modalities in esophageal cancer. The goal of modern radiotherapy approaches, based on recent technological advances,...
BACKGROUND: Prognostic factors for superficial esophageal cancer cannot be limited to such factors as lymph node metastasis (N factor), depth of tumor invasion (T factor), and genetic alterations. The...
Background. The prevalence of esophageal cancer accompanied by hypopharyngeal cancer (HPC) is high and increasing rapidly in Asia. The purpose of this prospective study was to evaluate the prevalence...
To evaluate the clinical impact of an online video simulator during the learning period of laparoscopic radical prostatectomy.
This is a single centre, open label, phase I dose escalation trial using a modified accelerated titration design. Patients with superficial bladder tumour (Ta or T1) or CIS and candidates...
RATIONALE: Imaging procedures such as positron emission tomography may improve the ability to determine the stage of esophageal cancer. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying how well f...
RATIONALE: Photodynamic therapy uses a drug, such as HPPH, that is absorbed by tumor cells. The drug becomes active when it is exposed to light, and kills tumor cells. HPPH may be effectiv...
This phase II trial is studying the effects of oxaliplatin, leucovorin and fluorouracil-when given together with Cetuximab and radiation therapy and radiation therapy to see how they work...
