To investigate the pathophysiology of the radiation-induced, chronic Lhermitte’s sign (LS) on the basis of long-standing case histories with partial functional recovery. As radiotherapy in two nasopharyngeal cancer patients, a biologically effective dose (BED) of 103.8 Gy2 (case 1) and 94.8 Gy2 (case 2) was delivered to the cervical spinal cord. Neurologic(More)
Radiation myelopathy is a rare, but extremely serious side-effect of radiotherapy. Recovery from radiation-induced motor sequelae is rare, whereas, the regeneration of sensory losses is relatively frequent. Among the sensory radiogenic injuries of the spinal cord, Lhermitte’s sign (LS) is most frequent. This review describes the clinical picture and(More)
Using three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT) and multisegmented conformal radiation therapy (MS-CRT) for breast cancer treatment, the dose coverage of the planning target volume (PTV) and the radiation burden on the organs at risk (OARs) were evaluated. 3D-CRT and MS-CRT were planned for 436 unilateral breasts (217 left). All patients were(More)
The cellular immune response was explored by us with the help of tuberculin and DNCB reactions in 73 cases of Hodgkin's disease. Serum immunoglobulins were simultaneously determined. Tuberculin and DNCB reactions had significantly been decreased before treatment. A significant augmentation of the IgA is remarkable in tuberculin and DNCB positive groups. The(More)
The authors studied the local effect of 3000 Rxl X-ray irradiation on the popliteal lymph nodes of rabbits. Beside the morpho-histological description autoradiography was performed after injection of H3-thymidine in the afferent lymphatic of the irradiated knee node. The main finding is the appearance of newly-formed germinal centers between the 6-10. days(More)
