Summary

The purpose of the research study is to test a measurement tool that will determine the radiation dose people receive when they have been accidentally exposed to radiation. This test will be done using a small amount of blood and known dose of radiation.

Clinical Trials [1580 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Study Comparing Two Different Schedules of Radiation for Early-stage Lung Cancer

This study's goal is to find out if the kind of side effects people experience from radiation is different depending on the schedule of their radiation treatment. Patients will be randomly...

Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) Reirradiation (ReRT)

The goal of this clinical research study is to find a safe dose of radiation that can be given to patients with brainstem glioma who have already received radiation therapy. You will rece...

Stereotactic Radiation Therapy With or Without Whole-Brain Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Brain Metastases

RATIONALE: Stereotactic radiation therapy can send x-rays directly to the tumor and cause less damage to normal tissue. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. It is...

Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Recurrent Breast Cancer

RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays and other types of radiation to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known whether a single dose of radiation therapy is more effective than...

Proton Therapy for Hodgkin Lymphoma

The purpose of this study is to reduce the risk of radiation related side effects and complications by treating with radiation (protons or photons) that exposes less of normal organs to lo...

PubMed Articles [2509 Associated PubMed Articles listed on BioPortfolio]

A roadmap for important centers of growth in the pediatric skeleton to consider during radiation therapy and associated clinical correlates of radiation-induced growth toxicity.

With the increasing use of advanced radiation techniques such as intensity modulated radiation therapy, stereotactic radiation therapy, and proton therapy, radiation oncologists now have the tools to ...

Dotting the eyes: mouse strain dependency of the lens epithelium to low dose radiation-induced DNA damage.

Epidemiological evidence regarding the radiosensitivity of the lens of the eye and radiation cataract development has led to changes in the EU Basic Safety Standards for protection of the lens against...

The opportunities of computer simulation training in radiation therapy.

The use of computer simulation is arguably more widespread in other industries than in medicine. However, it has filtered into mainstream use in radiation therapy via a commercial product born from co...

Influence of linear energy transfer on the nucleo-shuttling of the ATM protein: a novel biological interpretation relevant for particles and radiation.

Linear energy transfer (LET) plays an important role in radiation response. Recently, the radiation-induced nucleo-shuttling of ATM from cytoplasm to the nucleus was shown to be a major event of the r...

Radiation protection in therapy with radiopharmaceuticals.

Radionuclide therapy (RNT) involves the selective delivery of radiation, emitted from radionuclides to tumors or target organs. The techniques of RNT are increasingly being used for the treatment of v...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The ability of some cells or tissues to withstand ionizing radiation without serious injury. Tolerance depends on the species, cell type, and physical and chemical variables, including RADIATION-PROTECTIVE AGENTS and RADIATION-SENSITIZING AGENTS.

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.

The science concerned with problems of radiation protection relevant to reducing or preventing radiation exposure, and the effects of ionizing radiation on humans and their environment.

Electromagnetic radiation which does not produce ions in matter through which it passes. Its wavelengths are generally greater than those of far ultraviolet radiation and range through the longest radio waves.

Electromagnetic or corpuscular radiation capable of producing ions, directly or indirectly, in its passage through matter. The wavelengths are equal to or smaller than those of short (far) ultraviolet radiation and include gamma and X-rays and high-energy elementary particles.
