Reply to Radiation therapy does not increase survival in addition to standard androgen deprivation therapy for metastatic prostate cancer: An old, faded picture?

A Nomogram for Testosterone Recovery Following Combined Androgen Deprivation and Radiation Therapy for Prostate Cancer.

Testosterone recovery (TR) after androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) and radiation therapy (RT) is not well characterized. We studied TR in men who received RT and either short-term (ST) or long-term (...

Using smaller-than-standard radiation treatment margins does not change survival outcomes in patients with high-grade gliomas.

The number of studies that evaluate treatment margins for high grade gliomas (HGG) are limited. We hypothesize that patients with HGG who are treated with a gross tumor volume (GTV) to planning tumor ...

Effect on Survival of Androgen Deprivation Therapy Alone Compared to Androgen Deprivation Therapy Combined with Concurrent Radiation Therapy to the Prostate in Patients with Primary Bone Metastatic Prostate Cancer in a Prospective Randomis

Use of stereotactic body radiation therapy for oligometastatic recurrent prostate cancer: A systematic review.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) in the management of oligometastatic recurrent prostate cancer (PCa) by means of a s...

Apalutamide With Radiotherapy and Androgen Deprivation Therapy in Prostate Cancer

The main objective of the trial to determine if the combination of apalutamide with 6 months of androgen deprivation therapy by LHRH agonists in patients with intermediate and limited high...

A Salvage Trial of AR Inhibition With ADT and Apalutamide With Radiation Therapy Followed by Docetaxel in Men With PSA Recurrent Prostate Cancer After Radical Prostatectomy (STARTAR)

The purpose of this study is to describe the rate of 3-year progression free survival in men with recurrent PSA-only disease after prostatectomy, who receive combined apalutamide (ARN-509)...

Salvage Therapeutic Radiation With Enzalutamide and ADT in Men With Recurrent Prostate Cancer (STREAM)

The purpose of this study is to describe the 2 year progression-free survival in men with recurrent PSA-only disease after prostatectomy receiving combined enzalutamide and standard androg...

Androgen-Deprivation Therapy and Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Prostate Cancer

This randomized phase III trial studies androgen-deprivation therapy and radiation therapy in treating patients with prostate cancer. Androgens can cause the growth of prostate cancer cell...

Combination of Nivolumab Immunotherapy With Radiation Therapy and Androgen Deprivation Therapy

The purpose of this study is to test the safety, tolerability, and effectiveness of the investigational drug nivolumab (Opdivo™) in combination with high dose radiation. Investigators al...

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.

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.

A familial form of PSEUDOHERMAPHRODITISM transmitted as an X-linked recessive trait. These patients have a karyotype of 46,XY with end-organ resistance to androgen due to mutations in the androgen receptor (RECEPTORS, ANDROGEN) gene. Severity of the defect in receptor quantity or quality correlates with their phenotypes. In these genetic males, the phenotypic spectrum ranges from those with normal female external genitalia, through those with genital ambiguity as in Reifenstein Syndrome, to that of a normal male with INFERTILITY.

A therapeutic approach, involving chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery, after initial regimens have failed to lead to improvement in a patient's condition. Salvage therapy is most often used for neoplastic diseases.
