This pilot clinical trial studies proton beam radiation therapy in treating patients with thoracic cancer that has come back and have received prior radiation therapy. Proton beam radiation therapy uses high energy protons to kill tumor cells and may cause less damage to normal tissue.
I. To assess the grade 3 toxicity associated with thoracic re-irradiation with proton therapy, with prospectively applied normal organ radiation dose limits.
I. To assess the efficacy of thoracic re-irradiation with proton therapy.
Patients undergo proton beam radiation therapy per standard of care.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 3 months.

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...
The purpose of this research study is to determine if radiation using proton beam therapy will kill the germ cell tumor in the participant's central nervous system. This type of radiation...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if proton beam therapy, with or without photon beam radiation therapy, is effective in the treatment of skull base chondrosarcoma. The ...

This study aimed to examine late radiological changes after proton beam therapy (PBT) for early-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and to clarify correlations between mass-like radiological chan...
Brain metastasis is a common complication of advanced malignancies, especially, lung cancer, breast cancer, renal cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Traditionally surgery, when indicated, and radiation the...
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...
Measurements of the dose equivalent at different distances from the isocenter of the proton therapy center at iThemba LABS were previously performed with a tissue-equivalent proportional counter (TEPC...
The use of an external beam of PROTONS as radiotherapy.
An optical source that emits photons in a coherent beam. Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) is brought about using devices that transform light of varying frequencies into a single intense, nearly nondivergent beam of monochromatic radiation. Lasers operate in the infrared, visible, ultraviolet, or X-ray regions of the spectrum.
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
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.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
