INTRODUCTION This is an observational study and the aim is to evaluate the effect of dietary supplements based on Resveratrol, Lycopene, Vitamin C and Anthocyanins (Ixor®) in reducing skin toxicity due to external beam radiotherapy in patients affected by breast cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS 71 patients were enrolled and they were divided in two different(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to add, to the objective evaluation, an instrumental assessment of the skin damage induced by radiation therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS A group of 100 patients affected by breast cancer was recruited in the study over one year. Patients were divided into five groups of 20 patients. For each group it was(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this review was to compare radiation toxicity in Localized Prostate Cancer (LPC) patients who underwent conventional fractionation (CV), hypofractionated (HYPO) or extreme hypofractionated (eHYPO) radiotherapy. We analyzed the impact of technological innovation on the management of prostate cancer, attempting to make a meta-analysis of(More)
BACKGROUND The clinical benefits of postoperative radiation therapy (PORT) for patients with thymoma are still controversial. In the absence of defined guidelines, prognostic factors such as stage, status of surgical margins, and histology are often considered to guide the choice of adjuvant treatment (radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy). In this study, we(More)
PURPOSE We have evaluated thoracic conformation of patients in order to derive a numeric value predictive of an increased dose to left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD), critical structure for the development of late radio induced cardiac morbidity. METHODS We have evaluated 91 patients (36-88 years) affected by breast cancer stage I-II (Tis-T1-2(More)
INTRODUCTION Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death in Europe and the US. Isolated metastases to skeletal muscle and the mandible are very uncommon. CASE PRESENTATION This report presents two cases. Case 1 concerns a 45-year-old Caucasian woman affected by muscle metastasis of the right thigh from non-small-cell lung cancer. Case 2(More)
Background and Purpose: It is known that radiotherapy or chemotherapy alone don't represent a standard of care as adjuvant treatment for patients with advanced gastric cancer that underwent surgical resection. The purpose in the approach of this cancer is to find an adjuvant treatment that can affect overall survival. Phase 2 studies and randomized trials(More)
