Ionizing radiation is a toxic agent and widely accepted form of treatment for various types of cancer. Despite advances in medical technology, radiation therapy still causes severe early and late skin effects. Radiation-induced dermatitis occurs in approximately 80% of patients. Important consequences of radiation-induced dermatitis include impairment of the quality of a patient's life due to pain and premature interruption of radiation treatment, which in turn, may be impair ...
This randomized pilot clinical trial studies and compares prophylactic topical agents in reducing radiation-induced dermatitis in patients with non-inflammatory breast cancer or breast cancer in situ. The prophylactic topical agents, such as curcumin-based gel or HPR Plus, may reduce the severity of the radiation-induced dermatitis by minimizing water loss and inflammation during radiation therapy.
The purpose of the study is to determine whether curcumin, an ingredient of some foods, can prevent or reduce the severity of skin reactions (dermatitis) caused by radiation therapy. Dermatitis is a common side effect of radiation treatment, but few effective treatments have been developed for it. Curcumin is a natural compound found in both turmeric and curry powder. It has been used for centuries as a spice (curry), a food coloring and as a food preservative. Curcumin is non-...
A phase 2 double blind randomised study of PraevoSkin,a melatonin containing emulsion, in the prevention of radiation induced dermatitis.
This pilot clinical trial studies Dakin's solution in preventing radiation dermatitis in patients with breast cancer undergoing radiation therapy. Radiation dermatitis is a skin condition in which the affected skin becomes painful, red, itchy, and blistered. Dakin's solution may help reduce dermatitis caused by radiation therapy.
A randomized controlled trial comparing Urtica comp. gel (Swissmedic listed medication in the category of "Anthroposophic Medication without Indication") against standard skin care, examining its effect in prevention and treatment of radiation dermatitis in breast cancer patients under Radiation therapy.
Radiation therapy (RT) has been a component of breast cancer treatment for almost 100 years. Although initially used for the treatment of chest wall recurrences after mastectomy and for advanced inoperable disease, RT has evolved into a critical component of early therapy for women with an intact breast following lumpectomy and for mastectomized women who are at high risk for local failure. Currently breast cancer patients need a multidisciplinary management including surgery, ...
This clinicaltrial studies how well curcumin works to alleviate symptoms resulting from aromatase inhibitors taken by postmenopausal women for estrogen receptor positive/progesterone receptor positive breast cancer.
This randomized pilot clinical trial studies how well topical keratin works in treating radiation dermatitis in patients with breast cancer. Radiation dermatitis is a skin condition that is a common side effect of radiation therapy. The affected skin becomes painful, red, itchy, and blistered. Topical keratin may help to improve skin appearance and hydration in patients with breast cancer.
The aim of the present randomized double-blinded placebo-controlled clinical trial is to investigate if melatonin can protect against acute radiation dermatitis in patients with early breast cancer receiving radiation therapy, and whether this has an impact on the patients' quality of life.
The aim of this study is to compare the effects of Medihoney and Hydrophor on radiation dermatitis reactions in a group of women undergoing radiation therapy for breast cancer. It is hoped that the outcome of this pilot study will provide evidence supporting the use of Medihoney in preventing and treating radiation dermatitis as well as sufficient preliminary data to expand this study to larger, federally funded research (R01) looking at the beneficial aspects of Medihoney acro...
RATIONALE: Steroid therapy, such as mometasone furoate, may prevent radiation dermatitis caused by radiation therapy. It is not yet known whether mometasone furoate is more effective than a placebo in preventing radiation dermatitis. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying mometasone furoate to see how well it works compared to a placebo in preventing radiation dermatitis in patients undergoing radiation therapy to the breast or chest wall for invasive breast canc...
The aim of this study is to examine alterations in the skin microbiome that occur during radiation therapy. The study design will examine changes secondary to ionizing radiation, and correlate these changes with the development and severity of radiation dermatitis. The goal is to improve understanding of the mechanism of radiation dermatitis.
Effect of curcumin on modulation of immune and inflammatory parameters in pre-operative patients
Phase II trial of the silibin containing cream, Difinsa53 to determine efficacy in delaying, ameliorating, or preventing radiation dermatitis in patients with breast cancer undergoing whole breast radiation.
This pilot phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of curcumin when given together with piperine (piperine extract [standardized]) in reducing inflammation for ureteral stent-induced symptoms in older patients with cancer. Curcumin is a spice similar to turmeric and works by decreasing the chemical moderators that produce inflammation in the body. Piperine is pepper and works by increasing the amount of curcumin available in the body when taken with curcumin. Givin...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if combining a curcumin preparation with standard radiation therapy and chemotherapy (capecitabine) can help to shrink or slow the growth of rectal cancer. The safety of this combination and whether curcumin can help to decrease some of the side effects of standard radiotherapy and chemotherapy will also be studied.
There is a growing body of evidence exploring the role of curcumin as a radioprotector against radiation-induced injury in normal tissues as well as a radiosensitizer in tumor cells. The aim of this study is to determine the efficacy of oral nanocurcumin in prostate cancer patients undergoing radiotherapy.
Radiation dermatitis is a common side-effect of radiation therapy in cancer patients who frequently can experience redness, pain, crusting, and even ulceration of the skin causing suffering and treatment interruption. A recent retrospective study by DeLand demonstrated that administering light emitting diode (LED) photomodulation after each radiation treatment for breast cancer decreased radiation dermatitis in a majority of patients. LED photomodulation is a process by which...
Chemotherapy or radiation therapy-induced cardiotoxicity are well-recognized side effects in patients with cancer. The clinical significance of cardiotoxicity is growing with increasing cancer survivor-ship. Left ventricular (LV) functional assessment is the standard of reference to diagnose chemotherapy- or radiation therapy-induced cardiotoxicity. The investigators will investigate the usefulness of T1 mapping parameters for early detection and prediction of chemotherapy-, ...
Radiation induced accelerated atherosclerosis is a well known entity that occurs in different regions, according to the therapy delivered.It is usually begins to be clinically evident several years after the radiation incident, as there is sufficient functional reserve to these vessels.Our proposal is aimed to better characterize this side effect. For that purpose, we have chosen to study women who received radiation to the breast, in which part of the carotid in the irradiate...
Research has shown that treatment with conventional radiation techniques and chemotherapy following mastectomy or breast conserving surgery has resulted in better rates of locoregional control and overall survival in stage IIB-III breast cancer. The current feasibility trial using the most recent advance in radiation therapy, namely helical tomotherapy intensity modulated radiation therapy (HT-IMRT), hopes to improve on the results of conventional radiation by decreasing the am...
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 implant radiation therapy for 5 days in treating patients with recurrent breast cancer. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying implant radiation therapy to see how well it works compared with radiation therapy during surgery in treating patients with recurrent breast cancer.
Curcumin is a commonly-used spice and food coloring. Evidence suggests that curcumin can suppress tumor initiation, promotion and metastasis in a variety of tumor cell lines. The current available curcumin has low bioavailability restricting the effect of curcumin in non-colon cancer. In this study we plan to test a new liquid tumeric/curcumin extract, Curcumol (patent pending, Israel Patent Application No. 181,121). We predict the bioavailability of the liquid tumeric/curcumin...
