  • Furthermore, we have successfully genetically modified the knob domain of an adenovirus (Ad) type 5 fiber protein to contain our lead anti-TAF15 peptide and showed that this novel Ad-TAF15 targeting peptide binds strongly to irradiated breast tumor xenografts in a recent pilot study using bioluminescence imaging (BLI), a result that has major therapeutic and tumor imaging implications.

  • Even though this type of radiation does travel throughout the body, the radioactive substance mostly collects in the area of the tumor, so there's little effect on the rest of the body. (cancer.org)
  • Sometimes, radiation to prevent future cancer can be given at the same time radiation is given to treat existing cancer, especially if the area the cancer might spread is close to the tumor itself. (cancer.org)
  • However, proton beams do not scatter radiation on their path through the body and they stop once they reach the tumor. (cancer.gov)
  • A computer program is used to analyze the images and to design radiation beams that conform to the shape of the tumor. (cancer.gov)
  • Radiation given to shrink a tumor that is pressing on the spine or growing within a bone, which can cause pain. (cancer.gov)
  • Radiation given to shrink a tumor near the esophagus , which can interfere with a patient's ability to eat and drink. (cancer.gov)
  • Lung
  • Surface expression analysis of TAF15 via flow cytometry showed that TAF15 is not only expressed on the surface of brain, lung and breast cancer, but is also induced by IR reproducibly on the surface of breast cancer and endothelial cells, and not in normal cells. (aacrjournals.org)
  • For instance, people with certain kinds of lung cancer may get preventive (prophylactic) radiation to the head because their type of lung cancer often spreads to the brain. (cancer.org)
  • For example, if you have cancer in your lung, you will have radiation only to your chest, not to your whole body. (cancer.gov)
  • Radiation therapy may be given to the chest to treat Wilms tumour that has spread, or metastasized, to the lung. (cancer.ca)
  • The latest Canadian Cancer Statistics report found that of all newly diagnosed cancers in 2017, half are expected to be lung, colorectal, breast and prostate cancers. (cancer.ca)
