Clinically significant side-effects from radiotherapy affect around a quarter of breast cancer patients and may impact considerably on outcomes from treatment. An increasing number of replicated genetic associations for radiotherapy toxicity are being reported[1],[2]. The EU-funded REQUITE consortium aims to validate genetic markers and clinical factors implicated in radiotoxicity. The purpose of the REQUITE-AB project is to develop an integrated set of predictors for acute radiotherapy side-eff...

Abstract Aim To investigate late gastrointestinal toxicity in a large pooled population of prostate cancer patients treated with radical radiotherapy. Normal tissue complication probability models were developed for late stool frequency and late rectal pain. Methods and materials Population included 1336 patients, 3-year minimum follow-up, treated with 66–80 Gy. Toxicity was scored with LENT-SOMA-scale. Two toxicity endpoints were considered: grade ⩾2 rectal pain and mean grade (average score du...

Abstract Purpose To assess bladder spatial-dose parameters predicting acute urinary toxicity after radiotherapy for prostate cancer (PCa) through a pixel-wise method for analysis of bladder dose-surface maps (DSMs). Materials & methods The final cohort of a multi-institutional study, consisting of 539 patients with PCa treated with conventionally (CONV:1.8–2 Gy/fr) or moderately hypo-fractionated radiotherapy (HYPO:2.2–2.7 Gy/fr) was considered. Urinary toxicity was evaluated through the Interna...

Abstract Improving quality of life is a key issue for patients with prostate cancer (PCa). Lifestyle interventions could positively impact the quality of life of patients. However, there is no clear-cut understanding of the role of diet, exercise and risky behaviour reduction in improving the quality of life of men with PCa. The aim of this review was to systematically summarize randomized controlled trials on lifestyle in PCa patients with quality of life as main outcome. 17 trials were include...
