Shorter Radiation Schedule for the Treatment of Prostate Cancer

2014-08-27 03:49:41 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To improve the management of patients with early stage prostate cancer.

Description

To compare the efficacy of a shorter radiation fractionation schedule to the prostate (5250 cGy/20 fractions over 28 days) with a conventional schedule (6600 cGy/33 fractions over 45 days) in men receiving radiotherapy for Stage T1a moderately or poorly differentiated, or T1b, T1c, or T2 prostate cancer. The primary outcome is local control in the prostate and secondary outcomes include toxicity, disease free survival, survival, quality of life and economics.

APBI: 27Gy in 5 Fractions for Early Breast Cancer

This study will test the safety of partial breast RT using 27Gy in 5 daily fractions which is expected to be equally tolerated as standard whole breast irradiation (WBI) based on radiobiol...

PROFIT - Prostate Fractionated Irradiation Trial

This trial is designed to determine whether an 8-week course of escalated dose conformal radiation can be compressed safely, and with similar efficacy into a 4-week course.

The purpose of this study is to obtain preliminary information that will help, in the future, design a large trial, to see if SBRT is better than CRT at controlling pain in the spine.

Palliative Radiotherapy for Bone Metastases: Single Versus Multiple Fractions.

The aim of the investigators study was to determine whether 8 Gy in a single fraction provides equivalent pain and narcotic relief compared to 30 Gy in 10 fractions for patients with painf...

An Open-Label Study of E7974 Administered on Days 1, 8, and 15 of a 28-Day Cycle and Days 1 and 8 of a 21-Day Cycle in Patients With Solid Malignancies

The purpose of this study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of E7974 administered as an intravenous bolus dose on Days 1, 8, and 15 of a 28-day cycle (Arm A) or on Days 1 an...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Postnatal deaths from BIRTH to 365 days after birth in a given population. Postneonatal mortality represents deaths between 28 days and 365 days after birth (as defined by National Center for Health Statistics). Neonatal mortality represents deaths from birth to 27 days after birth.

Heparin fractions with a molecular weight usually between 4000 and 6000 kD. These low-molecular-weight fractions are effective antithrombotic agents. Their administration reduces the risk of hemorrhage, they have a longer half-life, and their platelet interactions are reduced in comparison to unfractionated heparin. They also provide an effective prophylaxis against postoperative major pulmonary embolism.

CHILDBIRTH before 37 weeks of PREGNANCY (259 days from the first day of the mother's last menstrual period, or 245 days after FERTILIZATION).

An ester of nicotinic acid that lowers cholesterol and triglycerides in total plasma and in the VLD- and LD-lipoprotein fractions.
