Definitive chemoradiotherapy for T4 and/or M1 lymph node squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus.
TLDR
Despite its significant toxicity, this combined modality seemed to have curative potential even in cases of locally advanced carcinoma of the esophagus. Expand
Long-term toxicity after definitive chemoradiotherapy for squamous cell carcinoma of the thoracic esophagus.
TLDR
Definitive CRT for SCC of the esophagus is effective with substantial toxicities, and additional investigation to minimize the normal tissue toxicities is warranted. Expand
Transfer of latissimus dorsi for irreparable rotator-cuff tears.
TLDR
It is concluded that latissimus dorsi transfer can be effective in restoring shoulder function after massive irreparable tears of the rotator cuff. Expand
Nonrandomized comparison between definitive chemoradiotherapy and radical surgery in patients with T(2-3)N(any) M(0) squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus.
TLDR
This nonrandomized study showed a trend for the chemoradiotherapy in the treatment of esophageal carcinoma, but the results need to be confirmed by additional study. Expand
Clinical impact of criteria for complete response (CR) of primary site to treatment of esophageal cancer.
TLDR
Assessment of the validity of the endoscopic CR criteria for the primary site of esophageal cancer treated with chemoradiotherapy found they are convenient to apply, require only a short time before a primary-CR can be declared and their fulfillment can predict long-term survival. Expand
High-dose proton beam therapy for Stage I non-small-cell lung cancer.
TLDR
Proton beam therapy is a promising treatment modality for Stage I NSCLC, though locoregional relapse and late pulmonary toxicities in Stage IB patients were substantial, and further investigation of PBT for stages I and II is warranted. Expand
Radiotherapy After Transcatheter Arterial Chemoembolization for Patients With Hepatocellular Carcinoma and Portal Vein Tumor Thrombus
TLDR
Radiotherapy after TACE is feasible for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma and PVTT, the survival figure is still dismal, and further investigation is needed to establish the best combination of treatment modalities. Expand
Elective nodal irradiation (ENI) in definitive chemoradiotherapy (CRT) for squamous cell carcinoma of the thoracic esophagus.
TLDR
In CRT for esophageal SCC, ENI is effective for preventing regional nodal failure and further evaluation of whether ENI leads to an improved overall survival is needed. Expand
A phase II study of radiotherapy employing proton beam for hepatocellular carcinoma.
TLDR
Since PRT showed minimal acute toxicity and excellent tumor control within CTV, it is expected as one of the convincing non-surgical treatment options for HCC. Expand
Relative biological effectiveness of the 235 MeV proton beams at the National Cancer Center Hospital East.
TLDR
The biological effectiveness of therapeutic proton beams for cell lethality in a therapy-dedicated cyclotron at the National Cancer Center Hospital East (NCCHE) at Kashiwa is investigated, concluding that an RBE of 1.1 would be appropriate for 235 MeVProton beams at the NCCHE. Expand
