Radiation Oncology (London, England); Cantaloube M, Boucekine M et. al.

Sep 27th, 2022 - The standard therapy for brain metastasis was surgery combined with whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT). The latter is however, associated with important neurocognitive toxicity. To reduce this toxicity, postoperative stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is a promising technique. We assessed the efficacy and the tolerance to postoperative Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GK) on the tumor bed after resection of...

BMC Cancer; Bozorgmehr F, Christopoulos P et. al.

Sep 25th, 2022 - Recently, the combination of the programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) inhibitor atezolizumab with first-line chemotherapy has demonstrated to improve outcome for patients with advanced small cell lung cancer (SCLC), leading to approval of this regimen. At the same time, accumulating (pre-)clinical data suggest synergisms of radiotherapy and immunotherapy via the radiation-mediated induction of ant...

BMC Pulmonary Medicine; Steinfort DP, Siva S et. al.

Sep 25th, 2022 - Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is established as the preferred method of mediastinal lymph node (LN) staging in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Selective (targeted) LN sampling is most commonly performed however studies in early stage NSCLC and locally advanced NSCLC confirm systematic EBUS-TBNA evaluation improves accuracy of mediastinal stagin...

Sep 24th, 2022 - The female genital tract can be involved as a secondary manifestation of disseminated lymphomas or leukemia but can rarely be the primary site of so-called extranodal lymphomas. Primary lymphomas of the female genital tract can affect the uterine corpus, uterine cervix, vulva, vagina or adnexa. Only about 0.008% of all cervical tumors are primary malignant lymphomas. The presenting symptoms are...
