Comparative analysis of prostate‐specific antigen free survival outcomes for patients with low, intermediate and high risk prostate cancer treatment by radical therapy. Results from the Prostate
For series referred to as ‘EBRT’, Reference #56 used RT doses < 72 Gy and should not be eligible for the present analysis. The sample size of Reference #35 should be reconsidered, as some of theExpand

Chemokine receptor CCR6 expression level and liver metastases in colorectal cancer.
PURPOSE The liver is the primary organ of metastasis in colorectal cancer (CRC). Chemokine receptor CCR6 is expressed on a subset of T cells and is associated with their migration into the liver.Expand

Comparison of high‐dose (86.4 Gy) IMRT vs combined brachytherapy plus IMRT for intermediate‐risk prostate cancer
To compare tumour control and toxicity outcomes with the use of high‐dose intensity‐modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) alone or brachytherapy combined with IMRT (combo‐RT) for patients withExpand

Quantitative analysis of extracapsular extension of metastatic lymph nodes and its significance in radiotherapy planning in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.
PURPOSE We performed a histopathologic analysis to assess the extent of the extracapsular extension (ECE) beyond the capsule of metastatic lymph nodes (LN) in head and neck cancer to determineExpand

Nuclear expression of CXCR4 in tumor cells of non-small cell lung cancer is correlated with lymph node metastasis.
The stromal-derived factor 1alpha (CXCL12)/chemokine receptor CXCR4 system plays an important role in the metastatic process of a variety of cancers, with CXCR4 frequently expressed by tumor cellsExpand
