CONCLUSION: Induction chemotherapy seems to have a negative impact on patient's compliance to CCRT. Bulky tumors and prolonged radiation interruptions were associated with significantly lower LRC, DFS and OS. PMID: 32458648 [PubMed - in process]

Radiation therapy plays a critical role in the treatment of esophageal cancer (EC), especially for locally advanced EC [1]. Historically, three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3DCRT) has been the most widely used radiation technique for EC. Based on inverse planning algorithm and complex modulated beams, IMRT can provide improved target coverage and better sparing of organs at risk (OARs) [2]. Therefore, as an advanced conformal radiation modality, intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) has been increasingly adopted worldwide over the past decade [3,4].

ConclusionThe combined OS and DFS rates of rNPC patients treated with endoscopic nasopharyngectomy were summarized and reported in our study. This meta ‐analysis indicated that endoscopic nasopharyngectomy has comparable and possibly better treatment outcomes than intensity‐modulated radiotherapy (IMRT). Therefore, the result of our study indicated that randomized controlled trials (RCTs) are needed in rNPC patients to compare treatment outcome s of endoscopic nasopharyngectomy vs IMRT.

ConclusionAfter great improvements in rectal cancer treatment, late gastrointestinal toxicity after radiotherapy is experienced less frequent and less severe; however, it remains a great concern associated with worse quality of life.

The use of a specific treatment technique in radiation therapy is mainly motivated by the achievable dose conformity to the target and the overall integral dose. Proton therapy offers a highly conformal and comprehensive treatment option with a lower integral dose (reduced low-dose bath) to organs at risk (OARs). Consequently, given the proximity of cardiopulmonary structures, proton therapy has been discussed as a treatment alternative for breast cancer patients [1 –3]. Treatment planning studies, comparing 3DCRT, IMRT, and proton therapy when irradiating the breast and regional nodes showed advantages of using prot...
