Among patients with T4 thoracic esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (TESCC), it is unclear whether the outcomes of late responders who undergo high-dose chemoradiotherapy (CRT) followed by salvage esophagectomy differs from those of early responders who undergo low-dose CRT followed by esophagectomy. A total of 153 patients with T4 TESCC were treated with(More)
In Japan, cetuximab with concurrent bioradiotherapy (BRT) for squamous cell carcinoma of head and neck (SCCHN) was approved in December 2012. We herein report our initial experience of BRT, with special emphasis on acute toxicities of this combination therapy. Thirty-one non-metastatic SCCHN patients who underwent BRT using cetuximab between July 2013 and(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the incidence and clinical significance of retropharyngeal lymph node metastasis in hypopharyngeal cancer. METHODS Pretreatment computed tomography and/or magnetic resonance images of 152 patients treated between 1998 and 2009 were retrospectively reviewed. The prognostic significance of retropharyngeal lymph node metastasis for 116(More)
OBJECTIVE The prognostic value of positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) with (18)F-fluoroazomycin arabinoside (FAZA) was evaluated in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) who underwent chemoradiotherapy (CRT). METHODS Twenty-nine patients with head and neck cancer underwent FAZA PET/CT before treatment. Data(More)
The purpose of this study was to retrospectively evaluate the incidence of delayed renal dysfunction after total body irradiation (TBI) in long-term survivors of TBI/hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Between 1989 and 2006, 24 pediatric patients underwent TBI as part of the conditioning regimen for HSCT at Chiba University Hospital. Nine(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the effects of dose-volume factors on the development of radiation pneumonitis in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer who received twice-daily radiotherapy concurrently with carboplatin and paclitaxel chemotherapy. METHODS Radiotherapy consisted of twice-daily fractionation of 1.2 Gy, to a total dose of 60 Gy. Weekly carboplatin(More)
