Several predictors of tumor radiocurability are already integrated into clinical practice, for example, tumor size, gross morphology (that is, infiltrative or exophytic), histologic type and grade. These are nonspecific and relatively imprecise. The aim of research into predictive assays is not only to refine the discrimination of existing predictors, but also to suggest specific experimental approaches for overcoming tumor radioresistance in individual patients. Two broad categories of… CONTINUE READING
