The aim of this feasibility study is to determine the therapeutic potential of the L19SIP antibody, labeled with the radionuclide 131I in combination with radiochemotherapy, for the treatment of patients with newly diagnosed, unresectable, locally-advanced NSCLC following the promising results with this agent in previous clinical studies.
The L19SIP antibody is a fully human antibody, capable of preferential localization around tumor blood vessels while sparing normal tissues. The formation of new blood vessels is a rare event in the adult (with the exception of the female reproductive tract), but it is a characteristic pathological feature for most types of aggressive cancer.

The specific objective of this study is to compare the relative efficacy of the combination of a temporary iridium implant plus external beam irradiation versus standard external beam irra...
The evaluation of the radiological changes in localised or locally advanced prostate cancer after androgen deprivation therapy and external beam radiotherapy using multi-parametric MRI (mu...
This is a dose finding study of a novel radiopharmaceutical agent, 153Sm-DOTMP. It will be studied alone and then in combination with external beam radiotherapy. The study design includes ...
This is an open-label, multicenter, phase I study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of durvalumab ± tremelimumab in combination with chemoradiation in patients with advanced solid t...
The purpose of the research study is to learn whether external beam radiation can be used as a safe and effective treatment for patients with bulky (≥ 5cm) sites of non-Hodgkin's lymphom...
Brachytherapy boost after external beam radiotherapy for intermediate and high-risk prostate cancer is presented as an attractive technique in numerous retrospective and prospective studies. Currently...
Only retrospective data is available for low dose rate (LDR) salvage prostate brachytherapy for local recurrence after external beam radiotherapy (EBRT). The primary objective of this prospective Phas...
A joint IAEA/AAPM international working group has developed a Code of Practice (CoP) for the dosimetry of small static fields used in external megavoltage photon beam radiotherapy, published by the IA...
Fixed beam radiotherapy systems utilize couch movement and rotation instead of gantry rotation in order to simplify linear accelerator design. We investigate the ability to deliver fixed beam treatmen...
It is unknown how treatment with radical prostatectomy (RP) and adjuvant external beam radiotherapy (EBRT), androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), or both (termed MaxRP) compares with treatment with EBRT...
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).
The use of an external beam of PROTONS as radiotherapy.
Computer-assisted mathematical calculations of beam angles, intensities of radiation, and duration of irradiation in radiotherapy.
The use of a heavy ion particle beam for radiotherapy, such as the HEAVY IONS of CARBON.
The science and application of a double-beam transmission interference microscope in which the illuminating light beam is split into two paths. One beam passes through the specimen while the other beam reflects off a reference mirror before joining and interfering with the other. The observed optical path difference between the two beams can be measured and used to discriminate minute differences in thickness and refraction of non-stained transparent specimens, such as living cells in culture.
