Radiotherapy plays an important role in the management of prostate cancer. Epidemiological data indicate a small but sinificant risk of radiation-induced leukemia after radiotherapy which might be related to the high mean bone marrow dose associated with radiotherapy of prostate cancer. The purpose of the study was to investigate the relation between the mean bone marrow dose and unstable chromosome aberrations in peripheral blood lymphocytes in patients undergoing conformal radiotherapy for prostate cancer as a possible indicator of risk. Endometrial cancer patients were also included for comparison.

The aim of this study was to quantify the combined effect of cisplatin and radiation on chromosomal damage with emphasis on the time interval between cisplatin and radiation.
This paper briefly summarizes the research on this topic, undertaken in the Department of Cancer genetics, Paterson Institute for Cancer Research, Manchester, England, over the previous 6 years.

Abstract Background and purpose : As more and more patients with prostate cancer are cured and survive with only minor chronic morbidity, other potentially treatment related morbidity, in particular second cancers, becomes an urgent problem which may influence decisions on treatment strategy and treatment plan optimisation. Epidemiological data suggest a radiotherapy associated risk of AML in prostate cancer patients of approximately 0.1% in 10 years. The aim of the study was to determine the ra...

Purpose: To establish 60 Co γ-ray dose-response curves for dicentrics and translocations visualized by chromosome painting and for dicentrics analysed after conventional solid staining. Materials and methods: Analysis of chromosomal aberrations was performed on peripheral blood lymphocytes obtained from 48 h old cultures of irradiated whole blood. Dicentrics were scored from Giemsa-stained preparations, and bi-coloured dicentrics and translocations after FISH painting of chromosomes 1, 2 and 4. ...

BACKGROUND Radiation therapy (RT) to the pelvis has been associated with an increased risk of bladder carcinoma, as well as other malignancies. However, no controlled studies have previously explored the risk of second malignancies after RT for prostate carcinoma. METHODS A retrospective cohort study was conducted utilizing data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program (SEER) of the U. S. National Cancer Institute from 1973-1990. The standardized incidence ratio (SIR), adjust...

Chromosomal abnormalities in tumours were recognized at the end of the last century but their significance has only recently become clear. Distinct translocations in leukaemias and in solid tumours lead to the activation of protooncogene products or, more commonly, creation of tumour-specific fusion proteins. The proteins in both categories are often transcription factors and thus disruption of transcriptional control plays a major role in the aetiology of cancer. Fusion proteins formed after ch...

An international study of cervical cancer patients reported a doubling of the risk for leukemia following radiotherapy. To evaluate the extent of residual chromosome damage in circulating T-cell lymphocytes in this population, approximately 200 metaphases were examined from each of 96 irradiated and 26 nonirradiated cervical cancer patients treated more than 17 years ago (average 23 years). Radiation dose averaged over the total red bone marrow was estimated to be 8.1 Gy. The type and frequency ...

BACKGROUND The question whether lymphocyte radiosensitivity is representative of patients' response to radiotherapy (RT) remains unsolved. We analyzed lymphocyte cytogenetic damage in patients who were homogeneously treated with preoperative radiochemotherapy (RCT) for rectal cancer within clinical trials. We tested for interindividual variation and consistent radiosensitivity after in-vivo and in-vitro irradiation, analyzed the effect of patients' and RCT characteristics on cytogenetic damage, ...

: The increasing risk of acute large-scale radiological/nuclear exposures of population underlines the necessity of developing new, rapid and high throughput biodosimetric tools for estimation of received dose and initial triage. We aimed to compare the induction and persistence of different radiation exposure biomarkers in human peripheral blood in vivo. Blood samples of patients with indicated radiotherapy (RT) undergoing partial body irradiation (PBI) were obtained soon before the first treat...

Background: Our aim was to identify gaps and limitations in the current literature and to make recommendations for future research required to address these. Materials and Methods: We reviewed occupational exposures and related factors associated with the risk of prostate cancer between 2000 and 2012. These included chemical, ergonomic, physical or environmental, and psychosocial factors which have been reported by epidemiological studies across a range of industries. Results: The results are in...
Um eine Pradiktion der Normalgewebereaktionen nach Strahlentherapie vornehmen zu konnen, ist es notwendig, geeignete Testverfahren zu entwickeln. Dabei hat sich die Bestimmung der azentrischen Chromosomenfragmente in Lymphozyten nach in vitro Bestrahlung als ein potentieller Marker etabliert (Borgmann et al. 2008, Hoeller et al. 2003). Unklar ist jedoch, ob die so bestimmte Strahlenempfindlichkeit von Lymphozyten durch eine vorangegangene Strahlentherapie modifiziert wird. Fur diese Fragestellun...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the in vivo dose–response relation of chromosome aberration formation and distribution in a context of localised and fractionated radiotherapy. Cytogenetic analysis was applied to eight patients, all treated for the same tumour localisation; the same localisation was used to prevent the variability usually observed between patients treated with radiotherapy and to allow the corresponding roles of the size of irradiation field and of the dose rate to be s...

Dose to bone marrow using IMRT techniques in prostate cancer patients Purpose: To investigate the dose distribution in active bone marrow of patients undergoing intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) for prostate cancer and compare it to the distribution in the same patients, if they had been treated using conformal plans, in order to develop criteria for optimization to minimize the estimated risk of secondary Leukemia. Patients and Methods: Mean bone marrow doses were calculated for ten patie...

Background and Purpose: Analysis of radiation-induced chromosomal aberrations is regarded as the "gold standard" for classifying individual radiosensitivity. A variety of different parameters can be used. The crucial question, however, is to explore which parameter is suited best to describe the differences between patients with increased radiosensitivity and healthy individuals. Patients and Methods: In this study, five patients with severe radiation-induced late effects of at least grade 3, cl...

Evaluation of radiation-induced apoptosis in T-lymphocytes was developed for human medicine in order to predict the sensitivity of individual patients to radiation therapy and has regular use in cases of suspected hypersensitivity. A major goal of the present study was to evaluate the usefulness of the apoptosis assay in veterinary medicine for application in radiation sensitivity testing. The main goal was to examine potential changes in sensitivity of T-lymphocytes to radiation-induced apoptos...

Abstract Purpose To measure chromosomal aberrations in blood lymphocytes from breast cancer patients treated with radiotherapy after quadrantectomy or tumorectomy. Methods and materials Twenty-two breast cancer patients treated with breast-conserving surgery and radiation were evaluated. Adjuvant chemotherapy was also given to 9 patients. Blood samples were obtained before radiotherapy, after about one-half of the fractions, and at the end of the treatment of the whole breast (50 Gy). Chromosome...
