Radiation therapy remains an important component of lymphoma treatment. It has evolved with improvements in technology and a better understanding of how to successfully integrate it into lymphoma trea...
Radiation therapy (RT) for the management of lymphomas has evolved over the past decades. Large extended or involved fields have been replaced by smaller involved site or nodal volumes. Currently, cus...
In patients with gastric extranodal marginal zone lymphoma of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma (MALT lymphoma), the standard radiation therapy (RT) dose is ≥ 30 Gy. We report the outcome o...
Patients with extensive dermal and subcutaneous disease present a technical challenge for treatment with radiation therapy (RT). Volumetric arc therapy (VMAT) can effectively treat disease on circumfe...
With the increasing use of advanced radiation techniques such as intensity modulated radiation therapy, stereotactic radiation therapy, and proton therapy, radiation oncologists now have the tools to ...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn about the effectiveness of low dose radiation therapy in patients with low grade B cell lymphoma or mantle cell lymphoma involving the ...
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill cancer cells. It is not yet known which regimen of low-dose radiation therapy is more effective in treating follicular non-Hodg...
The purpose of this study is to reduce the risk of radiation related side effects and complications by treating with radiation (protons or photons) that exposes less of normal organs to lo...
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Giving radiation therapy in different ways may kill more tumor cells. It is not yet known which regimen of radia...
This study is being done to test the safety and effectiveness of pembrolizumab followed by radiation therapy in Hodgkin lymphoma. The purpose of this study is to determine how effective c...
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
Drug therapy given to augment or stimulate some other form of treatment such as surgery or radiation therapy. Adjuvant chemotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
A process in which peripheral blood is exposed in an extracorporeal flow system to photoactivated 8-methoxypsoralen (METHOXSALEN) and ultraviolet light - a procedure known as PUVA THERAPY. Photopheresis is at present a standard therapy for advanced cutaneous T-cell lymphoma; it shows promise in the treatment of autoimmune diseases.
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.
