This study evaluated the outcomes of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients with small normal liver volume (NLV) treated with proton beam therapy (PBT) and introduced estimated standard liver volume (eSLV) as a new constraint.

To compare dosimetric performance of volumetric-modulated arc therapy (VMAT) and small-spot intensity-modulated proton therapy for stage III non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
The lack of evidence of biomarkers identifying patients that would benefit from proton therapy has driven the emergence of preclinical proton irradiation platforms using advanced small-animal models t...
Ablative radiotherapy is increasingly used for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) resulting in excellent local control rates, however patients without evidence of disease progression often die from liver ...
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...
Small hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs) often show atypical features at cross-sectional imaging, yet there is no preferred recommendation for the diagnosis or characterization of small observations (10...
This study is designed to evaluate the possible benefits and side effects of the use of proton therapy for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma.
This phase III trial studies how well radiation therapy with protons works compared with photons in treating patients with liver cancer. Radiation therapy, such as photon therapy, uses hig...
The primary reason for recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma after radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is the micro-metastatic lesion that has not been ablated and inactivated in the transition...
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of hypofractionated proton beam radiation therapy when given together with paclitaxel and carboplatin in treating patients with st...
Primary Objectives: 1. To evaluate the safety of the treatment of patients with technically or medically inoperable hepatocellular carcinoma and cholangiocarcinoma with proton ther...
Small RNAs found in the cytoplasm usually complexed with proteins in scRNPs (RIBONUCLEOPROTEINS, SMALL CYTOPLASMIC).
Final stage of a liver disease when the liver failure is irreversible and LIVER TRANSPLANTATION is needed.
Disorder of the peripheral nerves that primarily impair small nerve fibers. The affected small nerve fibers include myelinated A-delta fibers (see A FIBERS) and unmyelinated C FIBERS. Because these small fibers innervate skin and help control autonomic function, their neuropathy presents with neuropathic pain, reduced thermal and pain sensitivity, and autonomic dysfunction (e.g. abnormal sweating or facial flushing). Small fiber neuropathy can be idiopathic or associated with underlying diseases (e.g., AMYLOIDOSIS; DIABETES MELLITUS; SARCOIDOSIS; or VASCULITIS).
Lipid infiltration of the hepatic parenchymal cells resulting in a yellow-colored liver. The abnormal lipid accumulation is usually in the form of TRIGLYCERIDES, either as a single large droplet or multiple small droplets. Fatty liver is caused by an imbalance in the metabolism of FATTY ACIDS.
A small Maf protein involved in differentiation of ERYTHROID CELLS. MafK was originally described as the small subunit of the NF-E2 Transcription Factor, but other small MAF PROTEINS also serve as NF-E2 subunits.
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
