Background: Radiation-induced xerostomia is one of the most prevalent adverse effects of head and neck cancer treatment, and it could seriously affect patients’ qualities of life. It results primarily from damage to the salivary glands, but its onset and severity may also be influenced by other patient-, tumour-, and treatment-related factors. We aimed to build and validate a predictive model for acute salivary dysfunction (aSD) for locally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients by com...

AIM To identify the effect of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) interactions on the risk of toxicity following radiotherapy (RT) for prostate cancer (PCa) and propose a new method for polygenic risk score incorporating SNP-SNP interactions (PRSi). MATERIALS AND METHODS Analysis included the REQUITE PCa cohort that received external beam RT and was followed for 2 years. Late toxicity endpoints were: rectal bleeding, urinary frequency, haematuria, nocturia, decreased urinary stream. Among 43 li...

This study reports the treatment feasibility and efficacy of a novel multiagent intensive treatment program for young patients with desmoplastic small round cell tumor. This small series includes three patients and should be seen as a first suggestion of integration of the dose density and the maintenance chemotherapy concept. The IrIVA regimen (irinotecan, ifosfamide, vincristine, and actinomycin-D) is added-used at a short interval between chemotherapy administrations-at more classic intensive...

Background: Acute skin toxicity is a common and usually transient side-effect of breast radiotherapy although, if sufficiently severe, it can affect breast cosmesis, aftercare costs and the patient's quality-of-life. The aim of this study was to develop predictive models for acute skin toxicity using published risk factors and externally validate the models in patients recruited into the prospective multi-center REQUITE (validating pREdictive models and biomarkers of radiotherapy toxicity to red...

Background: REQUITE (validating pREdictive models and biomarkers of radiotherapy toxicity to reduce side effects and improve QUalITy of lifE in cancer survivors) is an international prospective cohort study. The purpose of this project was to analyse a cohort of patients recruited into REQUITE using a deep learning algorithm to identify patient-specific features associated with the development of toxicity, and test the approach by attempting to validate previously published genetic risk factors....
