Although localized prostate cancer (PCa) is multifocal, the dominant intraprostatic nodule (DIN) is responsible for disease progression after radiation therapy. PCa expresses antigens that could be re...
To report toxicity outcomes, PSA relapse, and cumulative incidence-post-treatment biopsy results among patients treated on a prospective dose escalation study using ultra-hypofractionated stereotactic...
A dose escalation study to determine the recommended dose with stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for peripheral T2N0M0 non-small cell carcinomas (JCOG0702) was conducted. The purpose of this ...
To identify patterns of local failure in patients with pancreatic cancer receiving stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) plus chemotherapy as initial treatment, for the optimal design of target v...
A radiation oncologist's recognition of the typical course of anticipated side effects during pancreatic stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is important. Given the excellent rates of toleratio...
The purpose of the phase I/II clinical study is to determine the best dose of fractionated stereotactic radiation therapy (SBRT) given either with GC4419 or placebo to patients who have be...
This study wants to find out how safe and effective the use of Folfirinox combined with Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy )(SBRT) is for the treatment of pancreatic cancer.
This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of stereotactic body radiation therapy while using intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) planning to help avoid radiatio...
Patients are randomized into two arms. Arm A patients will receive Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) and Arm B patients with receive conventional concurrent chemotherapy and radia...
This pilot clinical trial studies the side effects and best dose of stereotactic body radiation therapy in treating patients with kidney cancer that has spread to other places in the body ...
A radiological stereotactic technique developed for cutting or destroying tissue by high doses of radiation in place of surgical incisions. It was originally developed for neurosurgery on structures in the brain and its use gradually spread to radiation surgery on extracranial structures as well. The usual rigid needles or probes of stereotactic surgery are replaced with beams of ionizing radiation directed toward a target so as to achieve local tissue destruction.
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
Administration of the total dose of radiation (RADIATION DOSAGE) in parts, at timed intervals.
The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.
A condition caused by a brief whole body exposure to more than one sievert dose equivalent of radiation. Acute radiation syndrome is initially characterized by ANOREXIA; NAUSEA; VOMITING; but can progress to hematological, gastrointestinal, neurological, pulmonary, and other major organ dysfunction.
The pancreas secretes a number of important hormones into the digestive tract and the blood stream. Cancers are most commonly exocrine than endocrine (neuroendocrine) tumors. Functional tumors secrete hormones; Insulinoma, Gastrinoma, Somatostatinoma, VI...
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
Pancreatitis Acute pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas caused by the release of activated pancreatic enzymes. Common triggers are biliary tract disease and chronic heavy alcohol intake. Diagnosis is based on clinical presentation...
