This video examines how the use of radiation therapy in patients on immunotherapy can trigger immunogenic cell death, and reviews some of the challenges related to unwanted immune responses from radiotherapy.

In this interview we discuss new clinical guidelines from ASTRO on the use of radiotherapy in treating oropharyngeal cancer.

Value in its essence is preference or outcome divided by cost, or described in terms of a mathematical equation, value = outcome (preference)/cost. It follows, then, that value is increased by holding outcome constant and reducing cost, or by improving outcome while holding cost constant.

Ultimately, meaningful value assessment is going to require unbiased comparisons between competing strategies. Decision models are extremely useful in this regard and can provide important insight into cost-effectiveness evaluations.

No difference in time to recurrence, recurrence-free survival, or overall survival were noted for patients with rectal cancer who underwent one of three different preoperative radiotherapy regimens.

A study of the combination of radiation therapy and immune checkpoint inhibitors for the treatment of advanced lung cancer found a modest risk of side effects.

This video examines updated data from a phase II trial that compared a single dose of high-intensity SBRT with a standard three-dose schedule as treatment for patients with non-small-cell lung cancer.
