  • dose of radiation
  • The majority of epithelial cancers are only moderately radiosensitive, and require a significantly higher dose of radiation (60-70 Gy) to achieve a radical cure. (wikipedia.org)
  • Dr. Greenberger added that intravenous administration could potentially offer wide-reaching protection to the public in the event of a terrorist attack since experts believe a significant number of the population would die within 30 days of receiving a large dose of radiation to the entire body.

  • Lung
  • A major challenge in treating lung tumors with radiation is the toxicity of radiation to healthy tissue," said Joel S. Greenberger, M.D., professor, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. (biologynews.net)
  • This can result in major quality-of-life issues for lung cancer patients receiving radiation therapy for their diseases. (biologynews.net)
  • One of these groups was exposed to a second lung irradiation of 10 Gy without MnSOD-PL and the other received an injection of MnSOD-PL 24 hours prior to radiation exposure. (biologynews.net)
  • Side effects from radiation therapy for lung cancer can include fatigue, skin changes, swelling of the esophagus, hair loss in the treated area, dry cough caused by swelling of the lung tissue and sore throat. (biologynews.net)
  • This study proves that three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy improves outcomes for patients with medically inoperable stage I non-small cell lung cancer. (rxpgnews.com)
  • In this study, doctors at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston wanted to see if conventional radiation therapy worked as well as the newer three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (also called 3D-CRT) at curing patients with early stage non-small cell lung cancer. (rxpgnews.com)
  • Residency
  • Following an internship in internal medicine at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York, he did his residency in Radiation Oncology at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, where he served as Chief Resident. (empowher.com)
  • exposure
  • The literature also suggests that a factor related to the potential increased severity of the reaction is a short interval from completion of radiation to exposure to the offending agent. (psychiatryadvisor.com)
  • In previous studies, we demonstrated that gene therapy can be both swallowed in pill form and inhaled through a nebulizer prior to radiation exposure to protect healthy tissues from damage. (innovations-report.com)
  • In the study, animal models were used to test the protective effects of manganese superoxide dismutase plasmid liposome (MnSOD-PL) gene therapy during exposure to radiation. (biologynews.net)
  • patients
  • This study involved the largest reported series of patients who sequentially underwent mastectomy, immediate reconstruction and postmastectomy radiation therapy. (bio-medicine.org)
  • Our study provides evidence that patients who undergo autologous tissue reconstruction and radiation therapy have fewer long term complications and better cosmetic outcomes than those who undergo tissue expander/ implant reconstruction and radiation therapy. (bio-medicine.org)
  • Cancer patients who receive stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and whole brain radiation therapy (WBRT) for the treatment of metastatic brain tumors have more than twice the risk of developing learning and memory problems than those treated with SRS alone, according to new research from The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center. (innovations-report.com)
  • Patients are spared from the side effects of whole brain radiation and we are able to preserve their memory and learning function to a higher degree" said Chang. (innovations-report.com)
  • The study builds on previous research by senior author Christina A. Meyers, Ph.D., M. D. Anderson's chief of the Section Neuropsychology in the Department of Neuro-Oncology, examining neurocognitive function in patients with brain metastases treated with whole-brain radiation. (innovations-report.com)
  • We believe doctors and patients alike will favor this method over upfront whole brain radiation. (innovations-report.com)
  • The severity of the reaction is extremely variable and may develop in patients who experienced no clinical evidence of acute radiation dermatitis with their initial radiation. (psychiatryadvisor.com)
  • The report lends major support to the results from a landmark study on the use of hyperthermia therapy as a companion to radiation for treating advanced cervical cancer patients in that the results from this large follow-up population of patients were similar to those observed in the original study. (biospace.com)
  • treatment
  • It shows that the addition of radiation is potentially reasonable for the first-line treatment," said Clifton David Fuller, M.D., Ph.D., principal investigator of the study. (eurekalert.org)
  • Radiation therapy has several applications in non-malignant conditions, such as the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia , acoustic neuromas , severe thyroid eye disease , pterygium , pigmented villonodular synovitis , and prevention of keloid scar growth, vascular restenosis , and heterotopic ossification .

  • RESEARCH OBJECTIVES Background The use of image based radiation teletherapy treatment planning has grown substantially over the past few years. (nih.gov)
  • tumors
  • SRS is also commonly used in combination with WBRT, radiation of the entire brain, to treat tumors that are visible and those that may not be detected by diagnostic imaging. (innovations-report.com)
  • acute
  • One should suspect radiation recall if a patient presents with a skin reaction similar in appearance to acute radiation dermatitis with clearly defined edges that correspond to the patient's previously irradiated field. (psychiatryadvisor.com)
