Radiotherapy and head and neck cancer. Role of lymphocyte respontse and clinical stage.
TLDR
In general, a poor pretreatment response to PHA and Con A correlated with a poor clinical course, whereas responses near the control level indicated a good clinical course. Expand
Lymphocyte response in patients with head and neck cancer: effect of clinical stage and radiotherapy.
TLDR
Values for 45 patients tested at end of radiotherapy decreased to about 50% of pretreatment values; however, patients with advanced lesions experienced greater decreases than patients with localized lesions, so the extent of decline in laboratory values was most likely dependent on volume of tissue treated. Expand
In vitro lymphocyte response of patients with uterine cancer as related to clinical stage and radiotherapy.
TLDR
Responsibility of patients with uterine cancer in different clinical stages is tested to determine numbers and immunologic responsiveness of their lymphocytes in peripheral-blood cultures to mitogenic stimulation to determine effects of radiation on responsiveness. Expand
Effect of therapeutic radiation on peripheral blood lymphocytes in patients with carcinoma of the breast.
TLDR
Effects of radiation therapy for carcinoma of the breast on responsiveness to mitogens of blood lymphocytes of patients at different clinical stages and whether or not mastectomy was performed were analysed. Expand
Preliminary report of the M. D. Anderson Hospital/Texas A & M variable energy cyclotron fast-neutron therapy pilot study.
TLDR
The results with mixed beam irradiation were superior to those obtained with the other neutron therapy techniques, and compared favorably with the results of standard treatment methods, but the lack of a conclusive advantage for neutron therapy in this pilot study illustrates the need for on-going randomized clinical trials. Expand
Stereotactic implantation of iridium192 into CNS neoplasms.
TLDR
A new method of stereotactic implantation of Iridium192 into CNS neoplasms is presented and a case treated with this technique is presented with an encouraging short term result. Expand
Carcinoma of the cervix: surgical staging and radiotherapy with 32 MeV betatron.
TLDR
Fifty-six patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix were staged by exploratory laparotomy and received radiotherapy with 32 MeV Betatron and intracavitary radium, with an overall 23.2% of patients having metastases in the paraaortic fields. Expand
Experience with fast neutron therapy for unresectable carcinoma of the pancreas.
TLDR
The records of 70 patients with adenocarcinoma of the pancreas treated with radiotherapy were reviewed, and the neutron patients presented more advanced disease than those treated with radioactive gold-grain implants. Expand
Lymphocyte response and radiation therapy for patients with gynecologic cancer.
TLDR
Depressed pretreatment responses to PHA and Con A correlated with a poor clinical course and responses near control levels indicated a good clinical course, and patients who died within 18 months had no increase in lymphocyte counts or mitogenic responses after treatment. Expand
