BACKGROUND Preoperative radiotherapy (RT) is commonly used to treat localised soft-tissue sarcomas (STS). Hypoxia is an important determinant of radioresistance. Whether antiangiogenic therapy can 'normalise' tumour vasculature, thereby improving oxygenation, remains unknown. METHODS Two cohorts were prospectively enrolled. Cohort A evaluated the(More)
The Therapeutic Intensification in De Novo Leukaemia (TIDEL)-II study enrolled 210 patients with chronic phase chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) in two equal, sequential cohorts. All started treatment with imatinib 600 mg/day. Imatinib plasma trough level was performed at day 22 and if <1000 ng/mL, imatinib 800 mg/day was given. Patients were then assessed(More)
BACKGROUND There is limited information available on the optimal Planning Target Volume (PTV) expansions and image guidance for post-prostatectomy intensity modulated radiotherapy (PP-IMRT). As the prostate bed does not move in a uniform manner, there is a rationale for anisotropic PTV margins with matching to soft tissue. The aim of this study is to find(More)
Introduction. After treatment, bone sarcoma patients carry a high chance of relapse and late effects from multimodal therapy. We hypothesize that significant variation in surveillance practice exists between pediatric medical oncology (PO) and nonpediatric medical oncology (NP) sarcoma disciplines. Methods. Australian sarcoma clinicians were approached to(More)
Introduction: Chemoradiotherapy is the standard of care for anal cancer. Sizeable target volume leads to significant toxicity. We compared four different 3D conformal radiotherapy (3DCRT) techniques with the aim of finding the best technique to achieve the lowest dose to the organs at risk (OAR) without compromising the planning target volume (PTV)(More)
PURPOSE To review the response and outcomes of (177)Lu-DOTA-octreotate chemoradionuclide therapy (LuTate PRCRT) in patients with neuroendocrine tumour (NET) expressing high levels of somatostatin receptors with uncontrolled symptoms or disease progression. METHODS A total of 68 patients (39 men; 17 - 76 years of age) who had completed an induction course(More)
