We analyzed factors associated with rectal toxicity after iodine-125 prostate brachytherapy (BT) with or without external beam radiation therapy (EBRT).
This article was published in the following journal.
To investigate MRI radiomic analysis to assess IMRT associated rectal wall changes and also for predicting radiotherapy induced rectal toxicity.
Intersphincteric resection has been performed for very low rectal cancer in place of abdominoperineal resection to avoid permanent colostomy.
Rectal toxicity is one of the most common side effects in prostate cancer radiotherapy. Prediction of such effect is of particularly interest to personalize the treatment. This study's purpose is to i...
To report long-term effects on anorectal function and bowel disorders and late toxicity rate of preoperative chemoradiotherapy in patients with locally advanced rectal cancer.
Conflicting findings have been reported in older patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery for rectal cancer. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of age and comorbidities on short- and lo...
The main clinical hypothesis is that compared to radio-chemotherapy for low and mid rectal tumors or surgery for high rectal tumors neoadjuvant chemotherapy reduces the rate of distant rel...
The purpose and main objective of this study is the research of pre-operative and operative predictive factors of short-term (1-year) and long-term (15-years) improvement of quality of lif...
This internal pilot will be the first prospective study to assess the feasibility and efficacy of adding metformin in non‐diabetic rectal patients who undergo standard of care neoadjuvan...
The primary objective is to describe the genomic profile of long-term survivors, especially to find out potential genomic prognosis and/or predictive factors for gefitinib long-term effica...
Many data suggest that patients with low rectal adenocarcinoma who achieved ypT0N0 status have improved survival and disease-free survival (DFS) compared to all other stages however only f...
In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.
Experiments designed to determine the potential toxic effects of a long-term exposure to a chemical or chemicals.
Health insurance to provide full or partial coverage for long-term home care services or for long-term nursing care provided in a residential facility such as a nursing home.
Persons who have experienced prolonged survival of HIV infection. This includes the full spectrum of untreated, HIV-infected long-term asymptomatics to those with AIDS who have survived due to successful treatment.
A persistent increase in synaptic efficacy, usually induced by appropriate activation of the same synapses. The phenomenological properties of long-term potentiation suggest that it may be a cellular mechanism of learning and memory.
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
An enlarged prostate (benign prostatic enlargement (BPE) or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)) is common in men after the age of about 50. Having an enlarged prostate does not mean you have cancer. In some cases, an enlarged prostate can cause the ...
