    The treatment of brain tumors has evolved over the past few decades. While whole brain radiation therapy was the standard of care in the management of tumors for years, stereotactic radiation has for the most part replaced the technique in the management of metastatic tumors of the brain. In this review, the current indications are reviewed for both whole brain and stereotactic radiation Author: Jonathan S. Hayman. The role of postoperative radiation therapy for endometrial cancer: Executive Summary of an American Society for Radiation Oncology evidence-based guideline. Pract . Current radiation dose limitations, due to sensitive normal tissues that may surround a tumor, support a role for radiation sensitizers to enhance the effectiveness of radiation. Internationally recognized experts in cancer biology and clinical research review the present status of the multimodality approach to the management of solid tumors and speculate on possible future strategies for chemoradiation therapy. The authors detail applications of combined modality therapy.

This is illustrated by Fig. by:   5-Fluorouracil. One of the first agents to be exploited as a radiation sensitizer was 5FU, and the basis for its action is currently thought to be primarily from thymidilate synthase inhibition ().Interestingly, noncytotoxic concentrations of 5FU can also increase radiation sensitivity in vitro, but only when cells are incubated with drug before radiation.

In principle, radiation sensitizers with therapeutic ratios greater than that of misonidazole Radiation Sensitizers book be obtained either by increasing sensitizing efficiency, decreasing toxicity or preferably both.

The improvement of diagnostic techniques and the efficacy of new therapies in clinical practice have allowed cancer patients to reach a higher chance to be cured together with a better quality of life. However, tumors still represent the second leading cause of death worldwide.

On the contrary, chemotherapy and radiotherapy (RT) still lack treatment plans which take into account the biological Author: Marco Calvaruso, Gaia Pucci, Rosa Musso, Valentina Bravatà, Francesco P. Cammarata, Giorgio Russo, G. Radiation therapy has shown encouraging treatment efficacy on many types of tumors.

However, the side effects from accumulated high dosage during radiation therapy hindered its wide application in some cases. In this study, BSA capped Au nanoparticles (BSA-AuNPs) are employed as radiation sensitizers, aimed at achi.

The other approach that has enormous appeal involves the use of radiation sensitizers. If a drug selectively sensitizes the tumor, one could have a selective escalation of the effective biologic dose to the tumor, and therefore improve local control without increasing by: radiation sensitizer: Oncology Any agent which ↑ cell susceptibility to ionizing radiation Explanation Most CA cells are hypoxic and thus more resistant to radiation; a hypoxic-cell RS–eg, etanidazole, misonidazole, nimorazole would, theoretically, improve radiation killing of CA cells–results have been disappointing.
