Radiation Therapy as Palliative Treatment of GIST

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are generally considered resistant to radiation, but no prospective trials addressing efficacy and tolerability of radiation therapy have been carri...

Triptorelin, Flutamide, and External-Beam Radiation Therapy or External-Beam Radiation Therapy Alone in Treating Patients With Stage II or Stage III Prostate Cancer

RATIONALE: Androgens can cause the growth of prostate cancer cells. Drugs, such as triptorelin and flutamide, may stop the adrenal glands from making androgens. Radiation therapy uses high...

External-Beam Radiation Therapy Plus Implanted Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Prostate Cancer

RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays and other sources to damage tumor cells. Giving radiation therapy in different ways may kill more tumor cells. PURPOSE: Phase II trial...

Proton Beam Radiation Therapy for Intraocular and Periocular Retinoblastoma

The purpose of this trial is to evaluate proton beam radiation therapy as an alternative to external photon beam irradiation in children with retinoblastoma as a means of local tumor contr...

Internal Radiation Therapy With or Without External-Beam Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Localized Prostate Cancer

RATIONALE: Internal radiation uses radioactive material placed directly into or near a tumor to kill tumor cells. Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation direc...

Palliative thoracic radiation therapy for non-small cell lung cancer: 2018 Update of an American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Evidence-Based Guideline.

To revise the recommendation on the use of concurrent chemotherapy (CC) with palliative thoracic external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) made in the original 2011 American Society for Radiation Oncolog...

Emerging Role of MRI in Radiation Therapy.

Advances in multimodality imaging, providing accurate information of the irradiated target volume and the adjacent critical structures or organs at risk (OAR), has made significant improvements in del...

Predicting erectile function following external beam radiation therapy or brachytherapy for prostate cancer using EPIC-CP.

External beam radiation for localized periocular amyloidosis: a case series.

To evaluate the effectiveness of low dose external beam radiation therapy to halt progression of localized periocular light chain (AL) amyloidosis, a clonal plasma cell disorder.

Predictive factors of long-term rectal toxicity following permanent iodine-125 prostate brachytherapy with or without supplemental external beam radiation therapy in 2216 patients.

We analyzed factors associated with rectal toxicity after iodine-125 prostate brachytherapy (BT) with or without external beam radiation therapy (EBRT).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A therapeutic approach, involving chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery, after initial regimens have failed to lead to improvement in a patient's condition. Salvage therapy is most often used for neoplastic diseases.

Drugs used to potentiate the effectiveness of radiation therapy in destroying unwanted cells.
