PATIENTS AND METHODS A chart review was performed of MMBC patients consecutively registered in regional cancer registries in Germany between 1995 and 2011. Tumor(More)
PURPOSE We are reporting the five-year biochemical control, toxicity profile and dosimetric parameters using iodine-125 low dose rate brachytherapy (BT) as monotherapy for early stage prostate cancer at a single institution. MATERIAL AND METHODS Between April 2006 and December 2010, 169 men with early stage prostate cancer were treated with BT.(More)
BACKGROUND In a previous analysis (Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys 70:828-835,2010), we assessed whether an adjuvant supplementation with selenium (Se) improves Se status and reduces the radiation-induced side-effects of patients treated by adjuvant radiotherapy (RT) for cervical and uterine cancer. Now, a potential relation between the planning target volume(More)
Over the past two decades, there has been a rising trend in malignant melanoma incidence worldwide. In 2008, Germany introduced a nationwide skin cancer screening program starting at age 35. The aims of this study were to analyse the distribution of malignant melanoma tumour stages over time, as well as demographic and regional differences in stage(More)
In 56 male hypertensive patients a complex cardiopulmonary functional diagnosis was performed in rest and under ergometer load. The total functional capacity of the hypertensive patients is decreased already in the early stage and also in juvenile age, compared with healthy persons. Furthermore disturbances of the regulations of the minute output of the(More)
