;l G, Valable S Abstract Imaging is critical to each step of precision radiation therapy, i.e. planning, setup, delivery and assessment of response. Hadrontherapy can be considered to deliver more precise dose distribution that may better spare normal tissues from intermediate low doses of radiation. In addition, hadrontherapy using high linear energy transfer ions may also be used for dose escalation on biological target volumes defined by functional imaging. However, the physical characteristics of hadrontherapy also make it more demanding in terms of imaging accuracy and image-based dose calculation. Some of th...

CONCLUSION: Although tumor burden has been considered a mediator of efficacy of earlier immunotherapies, in advanced lung cancer it does not appear to affect outcomes from immune checkpoint inhibitors. IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: Historically, tumor burden has been considered an impediment to the efficacy of various immunotherapies, including vaccines, cytokines, allogeneic stem cell transplant, and intravesical bacillus Calmette-Guérin. However, in the present study, no association was found between tumor burden and efficacy (response rate, progression-free survival, overall survival) of immune checkpoint inhib...

ro Takami Isao Sakaida Takahiro Yamasaki The main modalities for gastric cancer screening are limited to upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and contrast radiography. The former is invasive, and the latter has high false-negative rates. Thus, alternative diagnostic strategies are required. One solution may be a liquid biopsy. Methylated RUNX3 is a well-known biomarker of gastric cancer but it is very difficult to detect with conventional bisulfite-based methylation assays when only a small amount of serum is available. We developed the combined restriction digital PCR (CORD) assay, a new methylation assay allowing for...

Discussion Tachycardia is a rapid heart rate that is above normal for age and level of exertion. Tachycardia is common, particularly sinus tachycardia due to normally encountered circumstances such as pain, fever or exercise. It is usually a normal physiologic process but sustained tachycardia often indicates a potentially abnormal underlying cause. Sinus tachycardia has a rapid heart rate with normal P waves and P-R intervals and variations from moment to moment and respiration. Generally it is not over 200 beats/minute. Vagal stimulation can slow the heart rate; this is a gradual slowing, not an abrupt slowing seen in ...
