Predictive assays are presently being developed to identify the patients at highest risk for developing severe late normal-tissue complications. If such patients could be identified prior to treatment, then the doses to those patients could be reduced to lower their complication rate. In addition, patients identified as being relatively radioresistant could receive higher doses without an increase in complications. The aim of the present study was to estimate the magnitude of the dose… CONTINUE READING
