PURPOSE The ACCORD 12 trial investigated the value of two different preoperative chemoradiotherapy (CT-RT) regimens in T3-4 Nx M0 resectable rectal cancer. Clinical results are reported after follow-up of 3 years. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between November 2005 and July 2008, a total of 598 patients were randomly assigned to preoperative CT-RT with CAP45(More)
BACKGROUND Definitive chemoradiotherapy is a curative treatment option for oesophageal carcinoma, especially in patients unsuitable for surgery. The PRODIGE5/ACCORD17 trial aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of the FOLFOX treatment regimen (fluorouracil plus leucovorin and oxaliplatin) versus fluorouracil and cisplatin as part of chemoradiotherapy in(More)
PURPOSE To investigate variations of circulating serum levels of interleukin-6 (IL-6), tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha), and interleukin-10 (IL-10) during three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT) in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer and correlate these variations with the occurrence of radiation pneumonitis. PATIENTS AND METHODS(More)
PURPOSE To assess local control, survival, and clinical and dosimetric prognostic factors in 25 patients with locally advanced maxillary or ethmoid sinus carcinoma treated by three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (RT). MATERIALS AND METHODS Surgery was performed in 22 patients and was macroscopically complete in 16. Seven patients received chemotherapy(More)
Conventional treatment for locally advanced rectal cancer usually combines neoadjuvant radiochemotherapy and surgery. Until recently, there have been limited predictive factors (clinical or biological) for rectal tumor response to conventional treatment. KRAS, BRAF and PIK3CA mutations are commonly found in colon cancers. In this study, we aimed to(More)
BACKGROUND The ACCORD 16 phase II trial aimed to evaluate the objective response rate after combination of conventional chemoradiotherapy (CRT) and cetuximab in locally advanced anal canal carcinoma (LAACC). PATIENTS AND METHODS Immunocompetent patients with histologically confirmed LAACC received CRT [45 gray (Gy)] in 25 fractions over 5 weeks,(More)
PURPOSE Radiation pneumonitis is the restricting complication following lung cancer irradiation. The correlation between dose-volume histograms (DVHs) and pneumonitis, with a clinical, radiological, and respiratory function evaluation was assessed. Special endpoint was the evaluation of respiratory function after three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy(More)
LBA4003 Background: CRT is one of the best treatment options for localized EC. As new combinations are required to improve safety and survival, we launched a randomized phase II study to assess the complete response (CR) rate of CRT with FOLFOX versus 5FU/cisplatin in 97 pts with localized EC (Conroy 2010). The trial having met its objectives, it has been(More)
PURPOSE To determine predictive factors of late radiation fibrosis (RF) after conformal radiotherapy (3D-RT) in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS AND MATERIALS Ninety-six patients with Stage IA-IIIB NSCLC were included in a prospective trial. Clinical evaluation, chest X-ray, and pulmonary functional tests including diffusion parameters were(More)
