The rules that govern tumour treatment depend largely on clinical stage (tumour volume, localization and/or metastasis presence). These rules are applied assuming that tumor growth is relatively static without considering the time factor, the number of clonogenic cells in the tumour or the volume reduction following initial cytotoxic therapy. Time and(More)
AIMS AND BACKGROUND The present case report describes vertebral metastasis retreatment using kilovoltage cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) for setup error correction, in order to improve target irradiation and prevent spinal cord toxicity. We evaluated the feasibility of the second radiation therapy course on the overlapping treatment volume. METHODS(More)
Background The efficacy and toxicity of hypofractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (HSRT) in combination with whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT), for the treatment of 1–4 brain metastases, using a non invasive fixation of the skull, was investigated. Methods Between 04/2001 and 01/2006 30 patients with 44 brain metastases underwent irradiation. Every patient(More)
A definite association between the transcription of N-myc oncogene and proliferation-related genes, histone H3, c-myc and p53, was found in a set of 12 primary untreated neuroblastomas and a metastasis of one of these at relapse. Molecular analysis allowed us to discriminate between actually proliferating and non-proliferating tumors, and suggested a link(More)
Granulocytic sarcomas (chloromas) are rare extra-medullary tumors arising from primitive granulocytic cells. The term "chloroma" is derived from the Greek word chloros (green), and it refers to the frequently greenish color of the tumor, which is due to the presence and oxidation of the myeloperoxidase enzyme. These tumors can arise de novo or can be(More)
The dose linearity of 2-(alpha-thenoylthio)-propionylglycine (TTPG) pharmacokinetics after a single oral administration at three different TTPG doses (180, 540 and 1080 mg) was evaluated in 12 healthy volunteers according to an open, randomized, cross-over study with a 1-week wash-out period between each administration. The duration of the study, for each(More)
