Ledderhose Disease: Radiotherapy or Not?

The aim of the LedRad trial is to determine the efficacy and durability of radiotherapy as treatment for patients with Ledderhose disease and to compare this to the natural course of Ledde...

BreAst Cancer and Cardiotoxicity Induced by RAdioTherapy: the BACCARAT Study

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...

PreOperative RadioTherapy for High-Risk Prostate Cancer (PORT-PC Trial)

Men with prostate cancer with Gleason Score of 8 or greater or clinical/radiographic evidence of T3 disease will be considered for this trial.

Dual REctcal Angiogenesis or MEK Inhibition radioTHERAPY Trial

To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of AZD6244 or AZD2171 when combined with pre-operative capecitabine and radiotherapy in patients with locally advanced rectal cancer.

CHEMOTHERAPY / RADIOTHERAPY IN UTERINE CANCER

The Effects of Collagenase Clostridium histolyticum on Plantar Fibromatosis: A Case Study.

Plantar fibromatosis, also known as Ledderhose's disease, is a rare disorder of benign fibroblast proliferation involving the plantar aponeurosis (i.e., plantar fascia). Traditionally, surgical interv...

Patterns of recurrence after prostate bed radiotherapy.

Prostate bed radiotherapy is a standard treatment after radical prostatectomy. Recent evidence suggests that, for patients with a PSA > 0.34 ng/ml, the radiotherapy treatment volume should inclu...

Intensity-modulated radiotherapy does not decrease the risk of malnutrition in esophageal cancer patients during radiotherapy compared to three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy.

Esophageal cancer is a lethal disease of global scope. Radiotherapy is the main method to treat esophageal cancer; however, it concurrently leads to malnutrition. Intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMR...

Radiotherapy for osteoarthritis-an analysis of 295 joints treated with a linear accelerator.

Osteoarthritis is a common disease, with a prevalence of symptomatic disease of 8.9%. One treatment option is radiotherapy. Most published samples were treated with an orthovoltage technique or with...

Long-Term Radiotherapy-Induced Cardiac Complications: A Case Report.

BACKGROUND Tumor disease has improved survival due to therapeutic advances and early diagnosis. However, anti-neoplastic treatment involves generating harmful side effects in the body, both in the sho...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

The total amount of radiation absorbed by tissues as a result of radiotherapy.

Radiotherapy where there is improved dose homogeneity within the tumor and reduced dosage to uninvolved structures. The precise shaping of dose distribution is achieved via the use of computer-controlled multileaf collimators.

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.
