Majority of Prostate Cancer Patients Surveyed Five Years After Treatment with Vessel-Sparing Radiation Therapy Report …

Contact Information Available for logged-in reporters only Newswise San Francisco, September 15, 2014A comparison of five-year sexual function outcomes, as reported by patients treated with external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) versus combination EBRT plus brachytherapy, indicates that the utilization of vessel-sparing radiation therapy makes cure possible without compromising long-term sexual function, according to research presented today at the American Society for Radiation Oncologys (ASTROs) 56th Annual Meeting.

Patients with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) Who Have Never Smoked or Who Have Quit Smoking Have Lower Risk of …

Contact Information Available for logged-in reporters only Newswise San Francisco, September 16, 2014 Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) survivors who never smoked or who are former smokers at the time of diagnosis have a lower risk of developing secondary primary lung cancers (SPLC) compared to those who are current smokers, suggesting that increased tobacco exposure is associated with a higher risk of SPLC, according to research presented today at the American Society for Radiation Oncologys (ASTROs) 56th Annual Meeting. The analysis studied the association between patients smoking histories and their risks of developing SPLC, which is defined as a new lung cancer unrelated to the initial tumor based on histology and location in the lung. The study analyzed 1,484 patients (372 current smokers, 1,014 former smokers and 98 never smokers) who underwent surgery, with or without adjuvant chemotherapy or radiation therapy, for stage I-IIIA NSCLC at Duke University Medical Center between 1995 and 2008

Improved Survival Shown in Early-Stage Hodgkin's Disease Patients Who Receive Radiation Therapy

Contact Information Available for logged-in reporters only Newswise San Francisco, September 14, 2014Patients with stage I and II Hodgkins Disease who receive consolidated radiation therapy (RT) have a higher 10-year survival rate of 84 percent, compared to 76 percent for patients who did not receive RT; and, the data also shows a decrease in utilization of RT, according to research presented today at the American Society for Radiation Oncologys (ASTROs) 56th Annual Meeting. Researchers evaluated clinical features and survival outcomes among 41,502 patients diagnosed with stage I and II Hodgkins Disease from 1998 to 2011 from a prospectively collected databasethe National Cancer Data Base (NCDB), which is comprised of cases from 1,500 sites and represents > 75 percent of all cancers diagnosed in the U.S. The average patient age was 37 (range: 18 90), with a median follow-up of 7.5 years

Long-Term Results of RTOG 0236 Confirm Good Primary Tumor Control and Positive Five-Year Survival Rates for Lung …

SAN FRANCISCO, CA–(Marketwired – September 15, 2014) – Patients with inoperable, early-stage lung cancer who receive stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) have a five-year survival rate of 40 percent, according to research presented today at the American Society for Radiation Oncology’s (ASTRO’s) 56th Annual Meeting. Such a positive survival rate is encouraging considering that historically conventional RT resulted in poor tumor control for patients with inoperable lung cancer. This study is an update of RTOG 0236, originally published in 2010[1], and also conducted by the original researchers to evaluate tumor control rates and side effects for patients at five years post-treatment.
