Background During radiotherapy of left-sided breast cancer, parts of the heart are irradiated, which may lead to late toxicity. We report on the experience of single institution with cardiac-sparing radiotherapy using voluntary deep inspiration breath hold (V-DIBH) and compare its dosimetric outcome with free breathing (FB) technique. Patients and ...

The residence becomes an interactional field with the potential to facilitate patients in resuming a new everyday life. The women who do not interact with others and/or who are stuck with feelings of anxiety should be offered the opportunity to take part in a group exclusively for "fellow sisters" in a similar situation. Implications for Rehabilita...
The presence of EGFR sensitizing mutations may improve tumour response rate but not survival in patients with localized NSCLC treated with definitive thoracic radiation therapy with or without chemotherapy.
Chronotherapy is no longer a novel concept in cancer treatment after approximately 20 years of development. Many clinical trials have provided strong supporting evidence that chronomodulated treatment yields better results than a traditional dosage regimen. This study aimed to evaluate the adverse reactions, effect on immune functions, and therapeu...

These therapeutic methods in a multidisciplinary approach generally lead to favourable therapeutic response. During radiotherapy of this region, oral mucosa is inevitably covered within irradiated v...

Maximal safe resection in conjunction with upfront RT is a reasonable multimodal treatment in patients with ATRT for prolonging progression-free survival. Further research may help determine the optimal parameters for reducing treatment toxicity, such as intensity of HDCT/SCT and the RT field.
Expert review of clinical pharmacology
in the last decades, the treatment of renal cell carcinoma has become more complex due to the introduction of novel systemic agents and the improvement of the loco-regional therapies that prolong survival maintaining a good quality of life. Areas covered: in this review, we summarize the currently available local and systemic treatment options, the...
