Authors: Zhong Y, Lin Z, Lu J, Lin X, Xu W, Wang N, Huang S, Wang Y, Zhu Y, Chen Z, Lin S Abstract Radiation-induced lung toxicity, including radiation pneumonitis and pulmonary fibrosis, often occurs in patients receiving radiation therapy. Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) of alveolar epithelial cells (AECs) plays critical roles in radiation-induced lung toxicity. In the present study, RNA sequencing was applied to examine the whole transcriptomes of human pulmonary AEC cells (HPAEpiC) with or without radiation treatment. We found that cytokine, chemokine and cell adhesion signaling pathways were enriched i...

ConclusionLipofilling is a very useful tool that could help in cases of an uninfected exposed implant. It could also be used primarily as an adjunct procedure to implant based reconstruction to optimize the outcome.

This study included 115 patients with 1,945 treatment fractions. Patients were treated with four techniques: tangents, tangents using deep inspiration breath-hold (DIBH), and tangents with regional nodal irradiation with and without DIBH. A total of 915 portal verification images were analyzed to determine setup errors for the skin, chest wall (CW), and heart. Setup error at each landmark was defined as the mean and maximum distances between the projected planning structure and the delineated structure on the portal image. Setup time for each fraction was determined using two recorded time-outs: one upon the patient enteri...

CONCLUSIONS:: This report describes an extremely rare case of a tracheal IMT, underlying the key role of radiotherapy as adjuvant treatment able to definitively cure IMT, limiting systemic chemotherapy-related toxicity. PMID: 30900517 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: Evidence from both, experimental and clinical studies demonstrates that the probability of achieving local tumor control by radiation therapy depends on the complete eradication of CSC populations. The number, properties and molecular signature of CSCs are highly predictive for clinical outcome of radiotherapy, whereas targeted therapies against CSCs combined with conventional treatment are expected to provide an improved clinical response and prevent tumor relapse. In this review, we discuss the modern methods to study CSCs in radiation biology, the role of CSCs in personalized cancer therapy as well as future...

CONCLUSIONS: Bladder-sparing treatment is an option for patients with bladder cancer. Those who may benefit most are those with solitary invasive cancers, those with good bladder capacity and compliance, those who choose to preserve their bladder and sexual function and who are not fit for RC. Multimodal bladder- sparing approaches may have comparable oncological outcomes to RC and so appear an attractive alternative in suitable patients. PMID: 30895765 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Loeffler, Kevin S. Oh, Lisa B. Nachtigall, Helen A. ShihAbstractPurposePatients undergoing cranial irradiation are at high risk for development of subsequent pituitary deficiencies. Patients with meningiomas can expect to live many years after treatment and are therefore particularly vulnerable to long-term sequalae of radiation therapy (RT). The purpose of this study was to determine the rates and timing of onset of pituitary dysfuncti...

The brain metastasis was surgically resected followed by Whole-brain radiation therapy. Postoperatively, his PSA again decreased to an undetectable level and remained undetectable with no evidence of new or recurrent disease.
