Neoadjuvant therapy in rectal cancer: how are we choosing?

Neoadjuvant therapy has revolutionized the management of rectal cancer; however, there is a need to examine the factors driving neoadjuvant treatment allocation. This study aimed to describe patterns ...

Feasibility of Neoadjuvant FOLFOX Therapy Without Radiotherapy for Baseline Resectable Rectal Cancer.

The combination of oxaliplatin, leucovorin and fluorouracil (FOLFOX) has been established as postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy for stage III colon cancer. However, the safety and efficacy of neoadju...

Dose Escalation with Simultaneous Integrated Boost (SIB) Using Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) in Rectal Cancer.

Assess feasibility-rate of PCR, short-term toxicity after neoadjuvant concurrent chemoradiation (NACRT) delivered via simultaneous integrated boost (SIB) using volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) ...

Can Haematology Blood Tests at Time of Diagnosis Predict Response to Neoadjuvant Treatment in Locally Advanced Rectal Cancer?

Outcomes in locally advanced rectal cancer are improved by neoadjuvant therapy followed by surgical resection. Some patients respond completely to preoperative treatment. Therefore, predicting the pat...

Patterns of Local-Regional Failure after Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy or Passive Scattering Proton Therapy with Concurrent Chemotherapy for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer.

We compared differences in patterns of local-regional failure, and the influence of adaptive planning on those patterns, in patients given passive scattering proton therapy (PSPT) vs. intensity-modula...

Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) for Patients With Rectal Cancer

This study will investigate short course radiation therapy using IMRT as an alternative to standard chemo radiation because prior studies have shown that this method of treatment will pote...

Intensity-modulated Radiation Therapy From 70Gy to 80Gy in Localized Prostate Cancer

The objective is to report outcomes,including grade ≥2 overall late rectal and urinary toxicity and biochemical control rates in patients treated with IMRT (70 gy, 74 Gy and 80 Gy)

Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Localized Prostate Cancer

RATIONALE: Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. It is not yet known ...

Tailored Operative or Non-operative Management for Low-risk Rectal Cancer After Intensive Neoadjuvant Treatment

This study is designed to test the efficacy of tailored operative or non-operative management (NOM) for MRI defined low-risk rectal cancer following neoadjuvant intensity modulated radioth...

Cetuximab, 5-FU and Radiation as Neoadjuvant Therapy for Patients With Locally Advanced Rectal Cancer

The standard treatment for rectal cancer is to receive the chemotherapeutic drug 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) with radiation therapy before having surgery to remove the rectal cancer. This is kn...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.

CONFORMAL RADIOTHERAPY that combines several intensity-modulated beams to provide improved dose homogeneity and highly conformal dose distributions.

Drug therapy given to augment or stimulate some other form of treatment such as surgery or radiation therapy. Adjuvant chemotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.

Organs which might be damaged during exposure to a toxin or to some form of therapy. It most frequently refers to healthy organs located in the radiation field during radiation therapy.

Drugs used to protect against ionizing radiation. They are usually of interest for use in radiation therapy but have been considered for other, e.g. military, purposes.
