ABSTRACT
The article offers news briefs related to science researches. New findings suggest that cells thought to seed tumor growth, cancer stem cells, might resist radiation treatment on cancer because they deflect damage from reactive oxygen species. Researchers have found out that calcium channels control breast cancer metastasis can be used as anticancer therapies. A study in mice reveals that antibodies which recognize a post-translational protein modification can induce arthritis.

    Purpose: Parotid gland can be considered as a risk organ in whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT). The purpose of this study is to evaluate the parotid gland sparing effect of computed tomography (CT)-based WBRT compared to 2-dimensional plan with conventional field margin. Materials and Methods: From...

    Purpose: Whole brain radiation (WBRT) has been shown to reduce local recurrence and is considered the standard of care post surgical resection of brain metastases. However, surgical bed (cavity) radiation is emerging as an alternative especially in patients who have received previous WBRT. The...

    Background: The lung is a common site of extracranial metastases. Frameless Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) is a promising new therapy for non surgically resectable neoplastic lung lesions used at our institution. Methods: A retrospective study of 21 patients and 33 lesions treated...

    Objectives: To determine if lung stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) using a coplanar beam technique was associated with similar outcomes as lung SBRT using a non-coplanar beam technique. Methods: A retrospective review was performed of patients undergoing lung SBRT between January 2008 and...
