  • toxicity
  • Grade 3+ toxicity was reported by 58 percent of patients, but this did not appear worse than the standard rate seen in HIV-negative patients. (healthcanal.com)
  • Also, all patients underwent dental prophylaxis and gastrostomy tube placement before beginning therapy, which may have played a role in the toxicity levels remaining comparable to HIV-negative patients. (healthcanal.com)
  • It is clear that HIV-positive patients tolerated primary radiation therapy for head-and-neck cancer without excessive toxicity or exaggerated tissue reactions," Allen Chen, M.D., senior author of the study and training program director at the University of California Davis Cancer Center in Sacramento, California, said.

  • It has also been observed in studies that partial breast radiation therapies, like IORT, lower the overall toxicity and burden of radiation by allowing the use of a lower dose of radiation, administered in fewer fractions, over a shorter period of time, while sparing the rest of the breast and the surrounding organs the effects of radiation therapy.

  • In the absence of dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) in the first 6 patients treated, subsequent cohorts of 6 patients each receive escalating doses of gemcitabine on the same schedule. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Part III: In the absence of toxicity and disease progression, patients continue gemcitabine for 3 additional courses. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Researchers
  • The researchers discovered this based on 12 years of information on 636 women over the age of 70 who had stage-one breast cancer. (doctorshealthpress.com)
  • Researchers at Duke Cancer Institute followed more than 112,000 women with Stage 1 and 2 breast cancer. (wgntv.com)
  • In a clinical trial, Jean-Francois Geschwind, MD, and fellow researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Kimmel Cancer Center used the device on 50 patients, the researchers found that it was able to reduce exposure by up to 80 percent compared to standard X-ray platforms for IAT.

  • conventional
  • Adjusted average total 1-year patient out-of-pocket expenses were not significantly different between hypofractionated vs conventional WBI in either group. (eurekalert.org)
  • computed tomography
  • Cardiac structural and functional changes after radiation can be detected early using echocardiography, cardiac computed tomography (CT), cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) and nuclear cardiology. (bio-medicine.org)
  • younger
  • Patients treated with PMRT were younger, had better performance status and larger primaries, were estrogen receptor (ER)-negative, had higher grade, lymphovascular invasion and positive surgical margins, and more often received systemic therapy. (springer.com)
  • neoadjuvant
  • Therefore, the ability to predict response for neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy may allow individualization and more rational selection of patients that will most likely benefit from this therapy. (biomedcentral.com)
