Purpose: To find predictors for rectal and intestinal acute toxicity in patients with prostate cancer treated with ≥70 Gy conformal radiotherapy. Methods and Materials: Between July 2002 and March 2004, 1,132 patients were entered into a cooperative study (AIROPROS01-02). Toxicity was scored using the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group/European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer scale and by considering the changes (before and after treatment) of the scores of a self-administered qu...

Abstract Background : Accurate modeling of late rectal reactions needs the collection of individual 3D dose–volume data (i.e. DVH) as well as clinical information of large cohorts of patients. The possibility of collecting a large number of patients with many different dose–volume combinations is very suitable for this purpose. Purpose : The purpose of the study is to search for significant correlation between dose–volume histograms/dose statistics of the rectum and late rectum bleeding. Materia...

Abstract Background : Recent investigations showed some correlation between three-dimensional (3D) treatment planning dose–volume data (dose–volume histograms: DVH, dose statistics) and rectal toxicity for patients treated for prostate cancer. However, no data are available about the possible impact of inter-institute variability in contouring the rectum, so that the possibility of reliably using information from single-centre studies remains doubtful. Purpose : Within a retrospective three-inst...
