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.

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.

Feasibility Study Comparing Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy vs Conventional Palliative RT in Spinal Metastases

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.

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.
