Conclusions: Actigraphy was highly sensitive and accurate and was a reliable measure of SE and SL. Although there were differences in TST and WASO measurements by actigraphy and PSG, our findings provide the basis for future studies on the use of actigraphy to monitor treatment response to wakefulness-promoting medications in youth with craniopharyngioma who demonstrate excessive daytime sleepiness.

ConclusionsIn this cohort of British children referred overseas for proton therapy, disease control does not appear compromised, toxicity is acceptable, and improvement in long‐term function is anticipated in survivors owing to the reduced brain exposure afforded by proton therapy.

This study demonstrated that patients with craniopharyngioma show weaker neurocognitive performance in comparison to the normative population resulting from tumor, events leading to diagnosis, and early surgical intervention. Systematic investigation of neurocognitive performance befor e treatment with radiation therapy is essential to evaluating the potential risks and benefits of newer methods of radiation therapy including proton therapy.

un-Lévi JM Abstract Purpose was to summarize results for proton therapy in cancer treatment. A systematic review has been done by selecting studies on the website www.pubmed.com (Medline) and using the following keywords: proton therapy, radiation therapy, cancer, chordoma, chondrosarcoma, uveal melanoma, retinoblastoma, meningioma, glioma, neurinoma, pituitary adenoma, medulloblastoma, ependymoma, craniopharyngioma and nasal cavity. There are several retrospective studies reporting results for proton therapy in cancer treatments in the following indications: ocular tumors, nasal tumors, skull-based tumors,...
