    2. Radiation And Immunotherapy Combination Can Destroy Both Primary And Secondary Tumors

      Turin, Italy: Radiation therapy not only kills cancer cells, but also helps to activate the immune system against their future proliferation. However, this immune response is often not strong enough to be able to cure tumours, and even when it is, its effect is limited to the area that has been irradiated.

    3. Can particle beam therapy be improved using helium ions? - a planning study focusing on pediatric patients.

      Can particle beam therapy be improved using helium ions? - a planning study focusing on pediatric patients. Acta Oncol. 2016 Jan 11;:1-9 Authors: Knusl B, Fuchs H, Dieckmann K, Georg D Abstract Aim To explore the potential of scanned helium ion beam therapy ((4)He) compared to proton therapy in a comparative planning study focusing on pediatric patients. This was motivated by the superior biological and physical characteristics of (4 ...

    4. DNA-Dependent Protein Kinase As Molecular Target for Radiosensitization of Neuroblastoma Cells.

      DNA-Dependent Protein Kinase As Molecular Target for Radiosensitization of Neuroblastoma Cells. PLoS One. 2015;10(12):e0145744 Authors: Dolman ME, van der Ploeg I, Koster J, Bate-Eya LT, Versteeg R, Caron HN, Molenaar JJ Abstract Tumor cells might resist therapy with ionizing radiation (IR) by non-homologous end-joining (NHEJ) of IR-induced double-strand breaks. One of the key players in NHEJ is DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK). The catalytic subunit of DNA-PK, i ...

  2. Quotes about Radiotherapy

    1. Proton radiotherapy is an important new technology with potential benefits – especially for difficult-to-treat cancers such as central nervous system tumours and medulloblastoma. This small study could be important in helping to support future clinical trials that use this technology in medulloblastoma.
