Ablative SMART Radiotherapy Could Be Beneficial for Advanced Pancreatic Cancer
Dr. Michael Chuong explains the advantages of radiation treatment with an MRI-guided system for pancreatic cancer patients.
Adding Focused Radiation to Standard Pancreatic Cancer Treatment
Researchers are using IORT–intraoperative radiation therapy–to treat pancreatic cancer that cannot be surgically removed.
New Guidelines on the Use of Radiation for Pancreatic Cancer Treatment
New clinical guidelines from the American Society for Radiation Oncology will help clarify the best uses of radiation treatment for pancreatic cancer.
For Pancreatic Cancer Patients, Pain Control Through Targeted Radiotherapy
Dr. Yaacov Lawrence is using celiac plexus radiotherapy in a clinical trials to target a source of pain for pancreatic cancer patients.
Precision Radiotherapy to Make Pancreatic Tumors Removable
A clinical trial tests a precision radiation technique called intensity-modulated radiation therapy against locally advanced pancreatic cancer.
Comparing Two Types of Radiotherapy for Pancreatic Tumors that Cannot Be Surgically Removed
Researchers are comparing standard radiotherapy treatment with a newer type of radiation that uses heavy ions, for nonsurgical pancreatic cancer patients.
MRI-Guided Radiation: A New Option for Pancreatic Cancer Treatment
Dr. Parag Parikh and others are using MRI-guided radiation to provide precision radiation treatment for pancreatic cancer.
Finding the Best Dose of Radiation and an Experimental Drug
A clinical trial looks for the best dose of an experimental drug to combat the mouth sores that are a side effect of stereotactic body radiation therapy.
Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) for Select Pancreatic Cancer Patients
Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is increasingly being used to treat locally advanced pancreatic cancer, and make it surgically removable.
Testing the Effectiveness of Radiation and Standard Treatment
A clinical trial compares FOLFIRINOX plus stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) with just FOLFIRINOX for pancreatic cancer that has spread locally.
High-Dose Focused Radiation after Surgical Removal of Pancreatic Tumors
A clinical trial looks at the effectiveness of stereotactic body radiation therapy in killing cancer cells in the margins after pancreatic tumor removal.
Slowing the Growth of Pancreatic Tumors Before Surgery
A chemoradiation clinical trial tests standard chemotherapy plus an anti-malaria drug and compares two types of radiation treatments, to slow tumor growth.
