Breast cancer risk and possible mechanisms of radiation-induced genomic instability in the Swedish hemangioma cohort after reanalyzed dosimetry.
 

Author(s): Markus Eidemüller, Erik Holmberg, Peter Jacob, Marie Lundell, Per Karlsson

Journal: Mutat. Res.. 2015 May;775():1-9.

 

The cohort of 17,200 female Swedish hemangioma patients, who had been exposed to ionizing radiation because of skin hemangioma, was analyzed for breast cancer incidence with descriptive excess relative risk models and mechanistic models of carcinogenesis. The dosimetry system has ...

Assessment of uncertainties in radiation-induced cancer risk predictions at clinically relevant doses.
 

Author(s): J Nguyen, M Moteabbed, H Paganetti

Journal: Med Phys. 2015 Jan;42(1):81-9.

 

Theoretical dose-response models offer the possibility to assess second cancer induction risks after external beam therapy. The parameters used in these models are determined with limited data from epidemiological studies. Risk estimations are thus associated with considerable uncertainties. ...

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 ...

Radiation-induced signaling pathways that promote cancer cell survival (review).
 

Author(s): Ashley L Hein, Michel M Ouellette, Ying Yan

Journal: Int. J. Oncol.. 2014 Nov;45(5):1813-9.

 

Radiation therapy is a staple cancer treatment approach that has significantly improved local disease control and the overall survival of cancer patients. However, its efficacy is still limited by the development of radiation resistance and the presence of residual disease after therapy ...

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 ...
