Induction chemotherapy of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) stage III with gemcitabine and cisplatin for downstaging of the tumour with the aim for further treatment with ionising radiation is one of the treatments for lung cancer patients. The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of the waiting time for radiotherapy, that is, the(More)
This is a position paper about the therapeutic effects of locally applied free IL-2 in the treatment of cancer. Local therapy: IL-2 therapy of cancer was originally introduced as a systemic therapy. This therapy led to about 20% objective responses. Systemic therapy however was very toxic due to the vascular leakage syndrome. Nevertheless, this treatment(More)
The quality of temperature distributions that can be generated with the multi-electrode current source (MECS) interstitial hyperthermia system, which allows 3D control of the spatial SAR distribution, has been investigated. For the investigations, computer models of idealized anatomies were used. These anatomical models did not contain discrete vessels.(More)
BACKGROUND Several French, Belgian and Dutch radiation oncologists have reported good results with the combination of limited surgery after external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) followed by brachytherapy in early-stage muscle-invasive bladder cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS Data from 12 of 13 departments which are using this approach have been collected(More)
The prognostic significance of clinically, histologically and flow cytometrically derived parameters was assessed in 49 glioma patients. With flow cytometry, DNA-index, S-phase fraction (SPF), 5-bromo-2'-deoxyuridine (BrdUrd)-labelling index (LI), and potential doubling time (Tpot) were determined. After univariate analysis of clinical variables such as,(More)
A new template technique has been developed for implanting hyperthermia catheters in the treatment of brain tumors. The technique utilizes an imaging template and a drill template which can be rigidly secured to the head with three skull screws. The anatomic and vascular information needed for hyperthermia treatment planning may be assessed with(More)
