Phase 1 lead-in to a phase 2 factorial study of temozolomide plus memantine, mefloquine, and metformin as postradiation adjuvant therapy for newly diagnosed glioblastoma.

Repurposed memantine, mefloquine, and metformin have putative anticancer activity. The objective of this phase 1 study was to determine the maximum tolerated doses (MTDs) of combinations of these agen...

A multicenter phase II study of temozolomide plus disulfiram and copper for recurrent temozolomide-resistant glioblastoma.

Preclinical studies have suggested promising activity for the combination of disulfiram and copper (DSF/Cu) against glioblastoma (GBM) including re-sensitization to temozolomide (TMZ). A previous phas...

Assessing Functionality and Benefits of Comprehensive Dose Volume Prescriptions: An International, Multi-Institutional, Treatment Planning Study in Spine Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy.

This study aimed to assess the effectiveness of multiple dose-volume specifications in minimizing interinstitutional, target-prescribed, dose variations for spine stereotactic body radiation therapy (...

Fluoxetine reverses brain radiation and temozolomide-induced anxiety and spatial learning and memory defect in mice.

Radiation therapy and concomitant temozolomide chemotherapy are commonly used in treatment of brain tumors, but they may also result in behavioral impairments such as anxiety and cognitive deficit. Th...

Initial results of a randomized phase III trial of high dose image guided radiation with or without androgen deprivation therapy for intermediate-risk prostate cancer.

Prior randomized studies have shown a survival benefit using combined androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) and radiation therapy for intermediate-risk prostate cancer. However, these studies either used...

Radiation Therapy or Radiation Therapy and Temozolomide or Temozolomide Alone in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Anaplastic Glioma

RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either...

Radiation Therapy With Temozolomide and Pembrolizumab in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma

The purpose of phase I trial is to determine the safest, most effective dose of MK-3475 (pembrolizumab), when used with radiotherapy and temozolomide for treating newly diagnosed patients ...

Temozolomide & RT Followed by Dose Dense vs Temozolomide & Retinoic Acid in Pts w/Glioblastoma

Patients have a newly diagnosed brain tumor called a malignant glioma and participate in the study to see if it is possible to increase the benefit of temozolomide when given after radiati...

Radiation Therapy With or Without Temozolomide in Treating Patients With Low-Grade Glioma

RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cel...

Radiation Therapy or Temozolomide in Treating Patients With Gliomas

RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

The amount of radiation energy that is deposited in a unit mass of material, such as tissues of plants or animal. In RADIOTHERAPY, radiation dosage is expressed in gray units (Gy). In RADIOLOGIC HEALTH, the dosage is expressed by the product of absorbed dose (Gy) and quality factor (a function of linear energy transfer), and is called radiation dose equivalent in sievert units (Sv).

The relationship between the dose of administered radiation and the response of the organism or tissue to the radiation.

A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.
