Three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma: is elective nodal irradiation necessary?
PURPOSE To evaluate the local control, survival, and toxicity associated with three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3D-CRT) for squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the esophagus, to determine theExpand
Implications for preserving neural stem cells in whole brain radiotherapy and prophylactic cranial irradiation: a review of 2270 metastases in 488 patients
This study delineated the incidence of metastatic involvement of neural stem cell (NSC) regions and further aimed to explore the feasibility of selectively sparing the NSC compartments during wholeExpand

PURPOSE To quantify the internal motion margin requirements for radiotherapy of tumors near the gastroesophageal junction (GEJ). METHODS AND MATERIALS Four-dimensional computed tomography (4DCT)Expand
Nodal Skip Metastasis is not a Predictor of Survival in Thoracic Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma
BackgroundThe presence of nodal skip metastasis (NSM) has been found to be of clinical importance in non-small cell lung cancer, but the study of this phenomenon in esophageal carcinoma is relativelyExpand
Four-dimensional computed tomography-based treatment planning for intensity-modulated radiation therapy and proton therapy for distal esophageal cancer.
PURPOSE To compare three-dimensional (3D) and four-dimensional (4D) computed tomography (CT)-based treatment plans for proton therapy or intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) for esophagealExpand
Late course accelerated hyperfractionated radiotherapy plus concurrent chemotherapy for squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus: a phase III randomized study.
PURPOSE Late course accelerated hyperfractionated (LCAF) radiotherapy (RT) is as effective as standard chemoradiotherapy for nonsurgical management of locally advanced esophageal squamous cellExpand
Radiation-/hypoxia-induced solid tumor metastasis and regrowth inhibited by hypoxia-specific upconversion nanoradiosensitizer.
Tumor resistance to ionizing irradiation and cancer cell's metastasis stimulated by radiation often lead to anti-cancer failure, and can be negatively caused by a key role--cellular hypoxia. In thisExpand
Patterns of distant organ metastases in esophageal cancer: a population-based study.
Background Esophageal cancer is the eighth most common cancer worldwide. The prognosis of esophageal cancer patients is dismal, especially those with distant organ metastasis. However, there are fewExpand
Evaluation of the value of ENI in radiotherapy for cervical and upper thoracic esophageal cancer: a retrospective analysis
BackgroundA retrospective study to compare the failure patterns and effects of elective nodal irradiation (ENI) or involved field irradiation (IFI) for cervical and upper thoracic esophageal squamousExpand
A subset of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma patient-derived xenografts respond to cetuximab, which is predicted by high EGFR expression and amplification.
Background Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is reportedly overexpressed in most esophageal tumors, but most targeted therapies showed no efficacy in non-selected patients. This study aims atExpand
