BACKGROUND Focal therapy (FT) for prostate cancer (PCa) seems to be part of a natural evolution in the quest to improve the management of early organ-confined disease. OBJECTIVE To assess the morbidity of the initial experience of FT in a tertiary referral center for PCa management. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS From 2009 to 2011, a total of 1213(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively compare health-related quality of life (HRQOL), patient-reported treatment-related symptoms, and costs of iodine-125 permanent implant interstitial brachytherapy (IB) with those of radical prostatectomy (RP) during the first 2 years after these treatments for localized prostate cancer. METHODS AND MATERIALS A total of 435 men with(More)
The risk of dying from different causes after Hodgkin's disease (HD) therapy has been quantified from a series of 1,449 patients with early stages included in four successive clinical trials conducted by the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) Lymphoma Cooperative Group since 1963. Overall, 240 patients died and the 15-year(More)
A retrospective study was carried out on 386 patients with advanced cervical carcinomas treated with radiation therapy between 1973 and 1983. The influence of hemoglobin concentrations and blood transfusions before and/or during treatment on the occurrence of distant and/or local regional failures were examined in a univariate and multivariate analyses. In(More)
From 1971 to 1984, 499 patients with all stages of Hodgkin's disease received mediastinal irradiation at the Institut Gustave-Roussy by 25 MV photons from a linear accelerator. Thirty-five pericarditis (10-year cumulative incidence rate of 9.5%) and 13 myocardial infarctions (MI) (10-year cumulative incidence rate of 3.9%) were observed. In contrast, no(More)
Tumour expression of the macrophage colony stimulating factor (CSF-1 or MCSF) has been associated with an adverse prognosis in breast cancer, through an effect on the promotion of metastasis. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the clinical relevance of high circulating CSF-1 levels in patients with newly diagnosed breast tumours and correlate(More)
Since 1980, 107 consecutive patients (pts) underwent bone marrow transplantation (BMT) for nonconstitutional severe aplastic anemia (SAA) at our institution. All received conditioning with Cytoxan (150 mg/kg) and thoraco-abdominal irradiation (6 Gy) from an HLA-identical sibling donor. Mean age was 19 years (5 to 46 years). Forty-nine pts had less than 0.2(More)
PURPOSE To validate a computed tomography (CT) and (18)F-deoxyglucose (FDG) image fusion procedure and to evaluate its usefulness to facilitate target definition and treatment planning in three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT) for non-small-cell lung cancer. METHODS AND MATERIALS Twelve patients were assessed by CT and FDG-coincidence mode(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the prognostic value of anemia in squamous cell carcinomas in the head and neck treated with curative radiation therapy alone. MATERIALS AND METHODS In a prospective study, the hemoglobin level was measured prior to radiation therapy in 217 patients (188 [87%] men and 29 [13%] women) with cancer of the oral cavity (n = 61 [28%]),(More)
PURPOSE To perform a randomized trial comparing 70 and 80 Gy radiotherapy for prostate cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 306 patients with localized prostate cancer were randomized. No androgen deprivation was allowed. The primary endpoint was biochemical relapse according to the modified 1997-American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology(More)
