AIMS AND BACKGROUND A prospective analysis was carried out on a group of irradiated patients with pacemakers or implantable cardioverter-defibrillators to identify any relationship between the various types of devices and physical and dosimetric parameters. Cardiac toxicity of the treatment was also investigated. METHODS AND STUDY DESIGN Forty-five(More)
Glioblastoma (GBM) contains stem-like cells (GSCs) known to be resistant to ionizing radiation and thus responsible for therapeutic failure and rapidly lethal tumor recurrence. It is known that GSC radioresistance relies on efficient activation of the DNA damage response, but the mechanisms linking this response with the stem status are still unclear. Here,(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this work is to develop an algorithm to predict recurrence in prostate cancer patients treated with radical radiotherapy, getting up to a prognostic power higher than traditional D'Amico risk classification. METHODS Two thousand four hundred ninety-three men belonging to the EUREKA-2 retrospective multi-centric database on prostate(More)
In the general framework of the European ICT Project CHIC, focused on the building of a common repository for data and models in the field of human cancer, we are collecting clinical, serological and pathological data about prostate cancer for prognostic and growth modeling purposes. Two ongoing retrospective observational studies, named EUREKA-1 and(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this work was to determine the technical feasibility and safety of extended-field radiotherapy (EF), performed by Helical TomoTherapy, in patients with positive pelvic and/or para-aortic nodes. Dosimetric data were collected and acute and sub-acute toxicities of the upper abdominal organs at risk (OAR) were evaluated. METHODS(More)
