  • biologic
  • Most radiation biologists/radiation oncologists have long accepted the concept that the biologic effects of radiation principally involve damage to deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), which is the critical target, as described in "Radiobiology for the Radiologist", by E.J. Hall and A.J. Giaccia . (mdpi.com)
  • antitumor
  • Recent advances in Platinum (IV) anticancer agents that have been in clinical trials and photoactivatable Platinum (IV) complexes are also summarized, and the purpose here is to provide insight into the requirements for the antitumor activity of Platinum (IV) complexes and a basis for progressing in a new platinum compound. (scirp.org)
  • Structures of classical and current world-wide antitumor platinum drugs. (scirp.org)
  • concomitant
  • Treatments were defined as sequential or concomitant when RT and the systemic drug were administered, respectively, at more or less than five half-lives from each other. (springer.com)
  • therapies
  • Research on anticancer therapies has advanced significantly in recent years. (wiley.com)
  • Recently, many reports have shown that an appropriate heat effect has potential anticancer efficacy and can enhance the efficacy of other cancer therapies. (jcmtjournal.com)
  • cancerous
  • It uses high energy radiation beams that are focused on cancerous tissues. (newsmax.com)
  • Even though the drugs are meant to destroy the growth of cancerous cells, they also affect the healthy cells, including ones associated with hair follicles. (akclinics.org)
  • oral
  • Oral drugs are simpler to use and less expensive than those requiring intravenous administration. (scirp.org)

  • Protecting your skin from exposure to the sun's UV radiation is a simple and very effective strategy for preventing skin cancer. (cancer.org.au)
  • delivery
  • Then X-ray responsive materials as promising alternative systems are summarized, including X-ray responsive drug-delivery vehicles, prodrugs that can be activated by X-rays, and radiation-site-targeting systems. (wiley.com)

  • Gauthier Bouche, Medical Director of the Anticancer Fund, points out that propranolol has already been repurposed to treat childhood benign tumours. (brightsurf.com)
  • clinical
  • These factors motivate scientists to design and synthesize novel and more potent analogues lacking disadvantages of clinical platinum drugs. (scirp.org)
  • In addition to above substantial limitations, all these three drugs are administered by intravenous infusion in clinical practice. (scirp.org)
  • Extraordinary planning was necessary to safely house an array of radiation therapy machines, including the world's first clinical cobalt-60 unit that had been designed by M. D. Anderson's Dr. Gilbert H. Fletcher, a radiotherapist, and Dr. Leonard G. Grimmett, a physicist, and approved by the United States Atomic Energy Commission. (tshaonline.org)
  • This study was initiated to evaluate incidence, grade and dosimetric correlation of Clinical Radiation Induced Pneumonitis (RIP) (≥ grade 2) in lung cancer patients undergoing radical radiotherapy. (omicsonline.org)
  • However
  • However, the one benefit of radiotherapy is that it destroys the hair, only in the area that is being treated. (akclinics.org)
  • However, with radiotherapy, chances of the hair growing back are very less, and even if it does grow back, the growth will be quite patchy or not as thick as before. (akclinics.org)
