OPCs abate the prometastatic potential elicited by irradiation in lung cancer
This study investigated the advantages of OPCs in RT-elicited lung cancer metastasis. A549-bearing nude mice were administered with OPCs and/or RT treatment. The results indicated that OPCs markedly enhanced the radioresponses such as decreasing tumor’s volume and weight, with a significant reduction of MMP-2/-9 in A549-bearing xenografts (P

To date, no published randomized trials have shown stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) to offer superior outcomes to conventionally fractionated radiation therapy (CFRT) for early-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The largest study to date, this investigation of a contemporary national database sought to evaluate practice patterns and survival between CFRT and SBRT.
Conventional whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT) has been established as the treatment standard in patients with cerebral metastases from small-cell lung cancer (SCLC), however, it has only modest efficacy and lim...
CONCLUSIONS: Patients with HL are generally at great risk of developing SC, which is significantly increased especially by the use of radiotherapy. We suggested special follow-up schema for patients after initial HL treatment suitable for daily real-world clinical practice. The system depends on gender, form of HL treatment and especially the form of radiation therapy in terms of location of radiation fields. PMID: 30011112 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: This article provides a brief current overview of literature pertaining to the role of radiation therapy in the management of lung cancer.
Conclusion: The approaches of this review are to highlight the recent management advances and contrast the differences of treatment practice between Western and Asian countries.
Conclusion: In spite of the rapid development of external beam radiation therapy brachytherapy continues to remain an important mode of therapy and is often a default treatment when external beam radiation option is limited.
Palliation may be the goal of care for some patients with intra-thoracic lung cancer. Factors such as the extent of disease, comorbidities, performance status, or symptom burden, may indicate that patients are unsuitable for more aggressive approaches with a curative intent. A palliative treatment plan implies a focus on the effective relief and control of symptoms, while preserving both the quality and quantity of life. Therapeutic measures may include palliative radiotherapy, palliative chemotherapy, or other forms of systemic treatment. In addition, certain interventional procedures may be used to achieve symptom pallia...
We present a case where lung cancer and laryngeal cancer was induced 20 years after radiation therapy of a hogkin lymphoma.
