Chemoradiotherapy Followed by Surgery for Advanced Paranasal Sinus Cancer

2014-07-24 14:24:29 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of concurrent chemotherapy and radiotherapy pre-operatively in patients with advanced paranasal sinus cancer. The main objectives of this study are: 1) to measure the rate of complete response to preoperative chemoradiation and 2) to study the efficacy of combining preoperative chemoradiation and surgery in terms of local control of the cancer two years post treatment.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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).

Tumors or cancer of the PARANASAL SINUSES.

Air-filled spaces located within the bones around the NASAL CAVITY. They are extensions of the nasal cavity and lined by the ciliated NASAL MUCOSA. Each sinus is named for the cranial bone in which it is located, such as the ETHMOID SINUS; the FRONTAL SINUS; the MAXILLARY SINUS; and the SPHENOID SINUS.

Diseases affecting or involving the PARANASAL SINUSES and generally manifesting as inflammation, abscesses, cysts, or tumors.

Tumors or cancer of the MAXILLARY SINUS. They represent the majority of paranasal neoplasms.
