Blocking the formation of radiation-induced breast cancer stem cells.
 

Author(s): Yangyang Wang, Wende Li, Shalin S Patel, Juan Cong, Nan Zhang, Francesco Sabbatino, Xiaoyan Liu, Yuan Qi, Peigen Huang, Hang Lee, Alphonse Taghian, Jian-Jian Li, Albert B DeLeo, Soldano Ferrone, Michael W Epperly, Cristina R Ferrone, Amy Ly, Elena F Brachtel, Xinhui Wang

Journal: Oncotarget. 2014 Jun;5(11):3743-55.

 

The goal of adjuvant (post-surgery) radiation therapy (RT) for breast cancer (BC) is to eliminate residual cancer cells, leading to better local tumor control and thus improving patient survival. However, radioresistance increases the risk of tumor recurrence and negatively affects ...

MicroRNA-218 enhances the radiosensitivity of human cervical cancer via promoting radiation induced apoptosis.
 

Author(s): Wang Yuan, Han Xiaoyun, Qiu Haifeng, Li Jing, Hu Weixu, Dong Ruofan, Yu Jinjin, Shen Zongji

Journal:

 

We previously reported frequent loss of microRNA-218 (miR-218) in cervical cancer, which was associated with tumor progression and poor prognosis. As microRNAs were found invovled in the regulation of radiosensitivity in various human cancers, we therefore aim to investigate the effects ...

Radiation-induced changes in serum lipidome of head and neck cancer patients.
 

Author(s): Karol Jelonek, Monika Pietrowska, Malgorzata Ros, Adam Zagdanski, Agnieszka Suchwalko, Joanna Polanska, Michal Marczyk, Tomasz Rutkowski, Krzysztof Skladowski, Malcolm R Clench, Piotr Widlak

Journal:

 

Cancer radiotherapy (RT) induces response of the whole patient's body that could be detected at the blood level. We aimed to identify changes induced in serum lipidome during RT and characterize their association with doses and volumes of irradiated tissue. Sixty-six patients treated ...

Curbing potential radiation-induced cancer risks in oncologic imaging: perspectives from the 'image gently' and 'image wisely' campaigns.
 

Author(s): Marilyn J Goske, Donald P Frush, James A Brink, Sue C Kaste, Priscilla F Butler, Pari V Pandharipande

Journal: Oncology (Williston Park, N.Y.). 2014 Mar;28(3):232-8, 243.

 

Medical imaging that uses ionizing radiation, such as CT, radiography, nuclear medicine, and fluoroscopy, is a cornerstone of the care of oncology patients and provides great benefit. Ionizing radiation at high doses is a known carcinogen.The exact degree of the risk of carcinogenesis ...

Harnessing the potential of radiation-induced immune modulation for cancer therapy.
 

Author(s): Mansoor M Ahmed, James W Hodge, Chandan Guha, Eric J Bernhard, Bhadrasain Vikram, C Norman Coleman

Journal: Cancer Immunol Res. 2013 Nov;1(5):280-4.

 

The conventional use of radiotherapy is for local tumor control. Radiotherapy of the primary tumor can prevent the development of distant metastases, but this modality is generally not effective for treating preexisting systemic disease. However, radiation-induced tumor destruction ...

Redox-mediated and ionizing-radiation-induced inflammatory mediators in prostate cancer development and treatment.
 

Author(s): Lu Miao, Aaron K Holley, Yanming Zhao, William H St Clair, Daret K St Clair

Journal: Antioxid. Redox Signal.. 2014 Mar;20(9):1481-500.

 

Radiation therapy is widely used for treatment of prostate cancer. Radiation can directly damage biologically important molecules; however, most effects of radiation-mediated cell killing are derived from the generated free radicals that alter cellular redox status. Multiple proinflammatory ...
