Shorter RT Course in Breast Cancer Yields Less Toxicity, Better QoL
Hypofractionated radiation therapy results in less toxicity and provides a better quality of life compared with conventional whole-breast irradiation, according to two recent studies.
Radiofrequency Ablation an Option for Inoperable Early-Stage NSCLC
The use of CT-guided radiofrequency ablation is well tolerated and effective among patients with inoperable stage IA non-small-cell lung cancer.
Post-Op RT Improves Survival in Incompletely Resected NSCLC
Use of post-operative radiotherapy was associated with better overall survival in patients with incompletely resected stage II/III non-small-cell lung cancer.
Intermittent ADT Upped Risk for Ischemic, Thrombotic Events
Men with prostate cancer assigned to intermittent ADT experienced more ischemic and thrombotic events than did men assigned to continuous ADT.
Urinary Markers May Predict Response to Re-irradiation of Bone Metastases
In a recently published study, patients who did not respond to initial radiation or re-irradiation of symptomatic bone metastases had significantly higher urinary markers of bone turnover at baseline and follow-up.
Radiation Response in Breast Cancer Bone Metastases
Researchers were able to demonstrate response to radiotherapy in breast cancer patients with osteolytic metastases by measuring increases in bone density.
RT Effective for Palliation of Bone Metastases From HCC
A recent study found that radiation therapy was effective for the palliation of painful spinal metastases in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma.
