CONCLUSIONS: Charged particle therapy with controlled beams of protons and carbon ions have significantly impacted targeted cancer therapy, eradicated tumors while sparing normal tissue toxicities, and reduced human suffering. These modalities still require further optimization and technical refinements to reduce cost but should be made available to everyone in need worldwide. The exploration of our Universe in space travel poses the potential risk of exposure to uncontrolled charged particles.However, approaches to shield and provide countermeasures to these potential radiation hazards in LEO have allowed an amazing numbe...

nar Ş Abstract Oral mucositis (OM) refers to erythematous and ulcerative lesions of the oral mucosa. This pathology can occur by various causes. Cancer therapy is one of the well-known causes of OM such as chemotherapy and/or with radiation therapy. It has been widely mentioned that oxidative stress parameters such as lipid peroxidation (LP) levels increase during cancer process. Glutathione (GSH) is one of the major intracellular enzymes to detoxify oxidant molecules. The aim of this study was to investigate and compare the effects of Triamcinolone Acetonide (TA), a synthetic steroid chlorhexidine (CHX), a chem...

AbstractThe cardiovascular (CV) toxicity profiles of traditional cancer therapies such as anthracyclines and radiation therapy are familiar to many cardiologists. With the development and widespread use of additional cancer therapeutics, CV toxicities related to these agents are becoming more common. Cardiovascular specialists are often integrated into the care team for individuals with cancer and knowledge of the CV toxicities of cancer therapeutics has become essential. In this review, we provide a clinically focused summary of the current data regarding CV toxicities of common cancer therapies and identify potential man...

Abstract Low sensitivity of cancer stem cells toward regular cancer therapy strategies is an important issue in the field of cancer remedy. The concept of cancer stem cell elimination has been a topic of interest in the field of molecular medicine for a long time. At the current study, it was aimed to elevate the sensitivity of cancer stem-like cells toward radiotherapy by treating with Oct4-Sox2 complex decoy oligodeoxynucleotides (ODNs). After treating HT29 and HT29-ShE cells with Oct4-Sox2 complex decoy ODNs, and analyzing the cellular uptake and localization of decoys, treated cells and control groups were sub...

Cardiovascular (CV) imaging is an important tool in baseline risk assessment and detection of CV disease in oncology patients receiving cardiotoxic cancer therapies. This position statement examines the role of echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance, nuclear cardiac imaging and computed tomography in the management of cancer patients. The Imaging and Cardio ‐Oncology Study Groups of the Heart Failure Association (HFA) of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) in collaboration with the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) and the Cardio‐Oncology Council of the ESC have evaluated the current evi...

Cancer therapy has long sat atop 3 distinct legs: surgery, systemic therapy, and radiation therapy. Although all of these modalities have been meaningfully enhanced by a steady flow of incremental improvements over the last half-century, there has been a feeling that something new was needed to “break the mold” and make a substantial difference in toxicity and cure. Modulation of the immune system has long been revered as the most likely game-changer in holy grail of cancer therapy, but widespread practical realization has been slow in coming.

Conclusion: Apatinib alone may be a good second-line therapy for advanced lung cancer patients who are refractory to platinum-based doublet chemotherapy. However, its potential benefits, especially as combination therapy, need further investigation by future prospective clinical studies. Elderly patients with advanced lung cancer may benefit from concurrent apatinib with iodine-125 radioactive seeds brachytherapy when chemotherapy is not tolerated or effective. Further studies are needed to investigate the clinical outcomes and toxicities associated with concurrent apatinib and radiation therapy in patients with advanced lung cancer.

Conclusions: We unite accumulating evidence and knowledge over the last 20 years or so on the importance of radiation treatment of cancer. This radiation-based therapy comes unfortunately with a deficit and this is the radiation-induced genetic instability which can fuel radiation toxicity, even several years after the initial treatment on patients through the activation of DNA damage response (DDR) and the immune system.
