Associations between radiation-induced lymphopenia (RIL) and survival have been extensively reported. However, the immune system is not considered as an organ-at-risk (OAR) in radiotherapy. This study aimed to develop the framework of an immune OAR model that may be utilized to predict and minimize RIL.

Lymphopenia has been associated with poor outcomes in cancer patients. We sought to describe the lymphocyte kinetics in patients who received radiotherapy; to identify factors associated with the end ...
In esophageal cancer patients, occurrence of severe radiation-induced lymphopenia during chemoradiotherapy has been associated with worse progression-free and overall survival. The aim of this study w...
The interest in combining radiotherapy (RT) with immunotherapy is increasing. We investigated the significance of lymphopenia in patients receiving immunotherapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)...
Background Radiation-induced oral mucositis is one of the major ionizing radiation toxicities and normal tissue injuries resulting from radiotherapy. It occurs in up to 80% of head and neck cancer irr...
High-precision radiotherapy is an effective treatment modality for tumors. Intensity-modulated radiotherapy techniques permit close shaping of high doses to tumors, however healthy organs outside the ...
Postoperative infections are one of the most common complications in thoracic and digestive cancer surgery. Former studies have demonstrated that inflammatory response is altered during pe...
Breast radiotherapy RT used until the 1990s was clearly responsible for increased mortality due to long term cardiac complications. Since the 2000s, improvements have appeared in dose dist...
In recent studies, a radiation-induced enteropathy is being reported over 50%. In clinics, probiotics are actively prescribed as a treatment for radiation-induced enteropathy. If probiotic...
This study is aiming to evaluate the retentive forces in PEEK framework RPD compared to Cobalt-Chrome framework RPD during attachment/detachment cycles in mandibular kennedy class I edentu...
Development of sarcoma within or adjacent to radiation field is a well known event of poor prognosis and unknown risk factors. Advanced techniques of radiation therapy including intensity...
Mistakes committed in the preparations for radiotherapy, including errors in positioning of patients, alignment radiation beams, or calculation of radiation doses.
The total amount of radiation absorbed by tissues as a result of radiotherapy.
Radiotherapy where cytotoxic radionuclides are linked to antibodies in order to deliver toxins directly to tumor targets. Therapy with targeted radiation rather than antibody-targeted toxins (IMMUNOTOXINS) has the advantage that adjacent tumor cells, which lack the appropriate antigenic determinants, can be destroyed by radiation cross-fire. Radioimmunotherapy is sometimes called targeted radiotherapy, but this latter term can also refer to radionuclides linked to non-immune molecules (see RADIOTHERAPY).
Computer-assisted mathematical calculations of beam angles, intensities of radiation, and duration of irradiation in radiotherapy.
Radiotherapy using high-energy (megavolt or higher) ionizing radiation. Types of radiation include gamma rays, produced by a radioisotope within a teletherapy unit; x-rays, electrons, protons, alpha particles (helium ions) and heavy charged ions, produced by particle acceleration; and neutrons and pi-mesons (pions), produced as secondary particles following bombardment of a target with a primary particle.
