  • acute radiation
  • Purpose: Studies of the association between ataxia telangiectasia-mutated (ATM) gene polymorphisms and acute radiation injuries are often small in sample size, and the results are inconsistent. (osti.gov)
  • Primary meta-analysis was performed for all acute radiation injuries, and subgroup meta-analyses were based on clinical endpoint. (osti.gov)
  • For all studies, the cut-off for differentiating cases from controls was grade 2 acute radiation injuries. (osti.gov)
  • The primary meta-analysis showed a significant association with overall acute radiation injuries (allelic model: odds ratio = 1.33, 95% confidence interval: 1.04-1.71). (osti.gov)
  • high incidence of acute radiation injuries showed larger effects than studies with low incidence. (osti.gov)
  • Power calculations revealed that the statistical power of the primary meta-analysis was borderline, whereas there was adequate power for the subgroup analysis of studies with high incidence of acute radiation injuries. (osti.gov)
  • We also showed that the genetic effect of the rs1801516 polymorphism on acute radiation injuries was dependent on the incidence of the injury. (osti.gov)
  • These support the evidence of an association between the rs1801516 polymorphism and acute radiation injuries, encouraging further research of this topic. (osti.gov)
  • Clinically the impact of parotid gland sparing on acute radiation induced morbidity will be investigated. (springer.com)
  • tumor cells
  • Because human CD45 antigens are confined to xenograft tumor cells in this model, and all murine tissues are devoid of hCD45 and will not bind anti-hCD45 Ab, we also compared one-step and PRIT using an anti-murine (m)CD45 Ab where the target antigen is present on normal hematopoietic tissues.

  • LCLC is, in effect, a "diagnosis of exclusion", in that the tumor cells lack light microscopic characteristics that would classify the neoplasm as a small-cell carcinoma, squamous-cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, or other more specific histologic type of lung cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • Prior to treatment, your radiation team will use computed tomography (CT) scans and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans to map out the location of the tumor cells. (hopkinsmedicine.org)
  • incidence
  • The influence of sample size and radiation injury incidence on genetic effects was estimated in sensitivity analyses. (osti.gov)
  • According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 12 million new cases of cancer are diagnosed globally each year, and the incidence of cancer is expected to rise in the coming years. (israel21c.org)
  • adjuvant
  • Polyglycolic acid mesh has been shown to undergo complete reabsorption within 3 to 5 months, which would require that adjuvant radiation be initiated within 3 weeks postoperatively. (cancernetwork.com)
  • patient
  • Currently the radiation dose a patient receives is prescribed based on population averages and does not take the individual patient's radio sensitivity into account. (renishaw.com)
  • The mediport is used for chemotherapy and the patient may also need radiation. (healthtap.com)
  • Raman
  • Together with his colleagues, Dr. Jirasek was the first to apply Raman spectroscopy to look at the unique cellular changes that occur following radiation. (renishaw.com)
  • research
  • OUTLINE: Tissue, including surgical waste, venous blood/serum, urine, bone marrow, and other body fluids, may be collected (at planned surgery and routine medical visits) and preserved for future research. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • dose-rate
  • Although the use of RIT may lead to the accumulation of DNA damage in leukemia cells by delivering a prolonged, exponentially decreasing low dose-rate of radiation exposure, the suboptimal therapeutic index (risk-to-benefit ratio) currently achievable with conventional RIT methodologies is a general limitation of RIT. (aacrjournals.org)
  • carcinoma
  • Non-small-cell lung carcinoma ( NSCLC ) is any type of epithelial lung cancer other than small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC). (wikipedia.org)
  • Pie chart showing incidences of non-small cell lung cancers as compared to small cell carcinoma shown at right, with fractions of smokers versus non-smokers shown for each type. (wikipedia.org)
  • Stage 0, also known as carcinoma in situ, means the cancer is "localized" to one area and is noninvasive. (healthcentral.com)
  • diseases
  • Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. (healthtap.com)
  • exposure
  • 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)
  • scientists
  • Micronized Resveratrol, is simply among the most efficacious anti-oxidants in the world, and is being declared by researchers and scientists as an anti-aging miracle drug that in the labs can assist and fend off the results of age-related conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, strokes, weight problems, Alzheimers and diabetes's. (revgenetics.com)
  • Polf worked on the effort with scientists at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, and H3D, a company based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. (healthcanal.com)
  • bone
  • Leukemia is more likely as a cancer caused by chemotherapy since it exposes more bone marrow . (healthtap.com)
  • Radiation to the breast will expose very little bone marrow and leukemia is not likely but nothing is impossible. (healthtap.com)
