Radiation Oncology

The understanding of the relationship between genetic variation and an individual patient’s response to radiation therapy has gained significant ground over the past several years. Genetic markers have been identified that could ultimately serve as the foundation for predictive models in clinical practice, and that hold the potential to revolutionize the delivery of precision medicine in oncology.

As specific candidate genes become more well established and gene expression assays gain sophistication, the value in clinical outcomes prediction and treatment selection is expected to transform the practice of radiation oncology.

Proton-beam therapy was found to be safe for patients with limited-stage small-cell lung cancer in the first prospective registry study of the therapy, with only a small number of high-grade toxicities.

In this interview we discuss new data on the use of radiotherapy in cancer patients with brain metastases.

This video highlights the evolution of stereotactic body radiation therapy in the treatment of pancreatic cancer.

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.
