In the age group eligible for screening, the thyroid gland is not very radiosensitive
Most of our patients overestimated the risks posed to the fetus by diagnostic X-ray imaging, and most correctly identified the most radiosensitive
period of pregnancy.
By arresting cells in this premitotic G2 phase, which is the most radiosensitive
phase of the cell cycle, taxanes are considered good radiosensitizing agents (77-79).
Laryngeal lymphoma is a more radiosensitive
tumor than is squamous cell carcinoma, and therefore less radiation is required (~30 to 50 Gy vs.
Smart scanning avoids unnecessary irradiation of radiosensitive
organs, such as the optic lens.
Given that, characteristically, intracranial germinomas are highly radiosensitive
and chemosensitive, allowing for a high cure rate with radiation alone or cisplatin-based chemotherapy followed by low-dose radiotherapy, an accurate diagnosis is critical for patient management.
Disadvantages of radiosurgical treatment include a long latency until hormonal secretion is controlled (42) and a limitation of dose if the tumor presses into the radiosensitive
optic apparatus (43).
However, this modality is expensive and exposes the patient to a high dose of radiation, especially for the radiosensitive
the lack of effects on the cancers believed to be most radiosensitive
and the indeterminate effects on children .
Cells of the embryonic nervous system are radiosensitive
and are actively differentiating and maturing during the foetal and early postnatal periods (Reyners et al.
PARIS -- Nanobiotix, an emerging nanomedicine company, announced today that preclinical follow-up data regarding long-term toxicity evaluation suggests that its patented NBTXR3 nanoparticles are designed to be a safe and effective treatment for radiosensitive
and radioresistant tumors.
Both late-stage noncancerous cells with shorter telomeres, and cancer cells with induced shorter telomeres, were more radiosensitive
and died more quickly, according to the study.
