BACKGROUND To evaluate the value of radiotherapy and immediate hormonal therapy in the treatment of stage C prostate cancer. PATIENTS AND METHOD From 1977 to 1986, 169 patients with clinically stage C prostate cancer underwent irradiation with curative intent following early orchiectomy. Sixty-four patients had a transurethral resection, 22 patients a(More)
In Hamburg since 1976 to 1980 we have treated 328 patients with fast neutron (DT, 14 MeV) and after reconstruction of the generator further 69 patients in 1984. The therapy with DT-neutrons had the best curative effect on high differentiated tumors. With the standard dose of 16 Gy in four weeks or--treating tumors in radiosensitive organs like brain and(More)
In Hamburg, the therapy with DT-neutrons had the best curative effect on highly differentiated tumors. With the standard dose of 15.6 Gy in four weeks with fast neutrons only or--in treating tumors in radiosensitive organs such as brain and intestine--with a photon-neutron schedule, we have seen no necroses in normal tissues. The rate of medium or slight(More)
The progress of full-field electromagnetic tools coupled to increasingly powerful computing hardware offer the possibility of modelling accurately micro/nano-structured fibres. Together with the advances in fabrication methods, this opens the door to the realization of optimized designs with growing complexity. Three examples of simulations are presented(More)
