Langerhans Cells Protect Skin Tumors from Radiation Treatment

Researchers at the Tish Cancer Institute, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, have discovered how tumors can survive the effects of radiotherapy. While studying skin tumors, the team discovered that during radiotherapy, skin immune cells — called Langerhans cells — are activated to repair the DNA damage caused by the radiation. When Langerhans cells were exposed to radiation, they could repair their own DNA. [ 287 more words. ]

Targeted, High-Dose Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy Appears to Benefit Some Patients with Pancreatic Cancer

This year, oncology researchers from John Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center have released results from two preliminary studies showing that stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) may be an advantageous choice in comparison to traditional radiation therapy options due to the timeliness and accuracy of the therapy. The study findings also suggest that SSBRT is as safe treatment option for certain patients whose pancreatic cancer tumors have advance but not metastasized. [ 448 more words. ]
