Hypo-fractionated Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy for Localized Prostate Cancer

2014-08-27 03:16:15 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is a single arm clinical program designed to establish and quantify the rates of long-term toxicities and tumor control of a hypo-fractionated course of radiotherapy for the treatment of low-risk localized prostate cancer. Hypo-fractionated radiotherapy is an accelerated radiotherapy course where fewer but larger daily doses of radiotherapy are given. When an image-guided conformal radiotherapy technique is used to deliver hypo-fractionated radiotherapy it is often also called stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT).

Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment and quality of life after localized prostate cancer radiotherapy in elderly patients.

Radiotherapy can diminish quality of life (QoL) for prostate cancer patients. Our objective was to evaluate the effect of radiotherapy on QoL in men aged 75 years or older treated with radiotherapy fo...

Development of quality indicators to monitor radiotherapy care for men with prostate cancer: A modified Delphi method.

Quality indicators (QIs) have been developed for many aspects of prostate cancer care, but are under-developed with regard to radiotherapy treatment. We aimed to develop a valid, relevant and feasible...

Challenges in the Analysis of Outcomes for Surgical Compared to Radiotherapy Treatment of Prostate Cancer.

Prostate cancer can be treated with radical prostatectomy (RP), external-beam radiotherapy (EBRT), or brachytherapy (BT). These modalities have similar cancer-related outcomes. We used an innovative m...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.

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.

A synthetic retinoid that is used orally as a chemopreventive against prostate cancer and in women at risk of developing contralateral breast cancer. It is also effective as an antineoplastic agent.

Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).

Proteins secreted by the prostate gland. The major secretory proteins from the human prostate gland include PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, prostate-specific acid phosphatase, prostate-specific membrane antigen, and prostate-specific protein-94.
