Pre-operative Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiotherapy Followed by Immediate Surgery for Pancreatic Cancer

2019-10-21 12:45:27 | BioPortfolio


A window of opportunity feasibility study assessing pre-operative stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy followed by immediate surgery in pancreatic adenocarcinoma.


This is a single-centre, prospective, non-randomised feasibility study. This study will assess whether SABR can safely be given immediately prior to Whipple's resection by assessing the rate of post-operative complications.

Two versus five stereotactic ablative radiotherapy treatments for localized prostate cancer: A quality of life analysis of two prospective clinical trials.

Stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) is appealing for prostate cancer (PCa) due to low α/β, and increasing the dose per fraction could improve the therapeutic index and lead to a better quality...

Salvage stereotactic body radiotherapy for local prostate cancer recurrence after radiotherapy: a retrospective multicentre study of the GETUG.

and purpose: To assess the efficacy and safety of salvage stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) in patients with biopsy-proven local prostate cancer recurrence after radiotherapy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Irradiation of one half or both halves of the body in the treatment of disseminated cancer or widespread metastases. It is used to treat diffuse metastases in one session as opposed to multiple fields over an extended period. The more frequent treatment modalities are upper hemibody irradiation (UHBI) or lower hemibody irradiation (LHBI). Less common is mid-body irradiation (MBI). In the treatment of both halves of the body sequentially, hemibody irradiation permits radiotherapy of the whole body with larger doses of radiation than could be accomplished with WHOLE-BODY IRRADIATION. It is sometimes called "systemic" hemibody irradiation with reference to its use in widespread cancer or metastases. (P. Rubin et al. Cancer, Vol 55, p2210, 1985)

Radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery or chemotherapy. Adjuvant radiotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.

Fastening devices composed of steel-tantalum alloys used to close operative wounds, especially of the skin, which minimizes infection by not introducing a foreign body that would connect external and internal regions of the body. (From Segen, Current Med Talk, 1995)

A radiological stereotactic technique developed for cutting or destroying tissue by high doses of radiation in place of surgical incisions. It was originally developed for neurosurgery on structures in the brain and its use gradually spread to radiation surgery on extracranial structures as well. The usual rigid needles or probes of stereotactic surgery are replaced with beams of ionizing radiation directed toward a target so as to achieve local tissue destruction.
