Intraoperative irradiation for unresectable pancreatic carcinoma

Cancer
W C WoodG Nardi

Abstract

Twelve patients with localized unresectable, pancreatic carcinoma were treated with a combination of external photon beam and intraoperative electron beam irradiation. Eleven tumors arose in the head and one in the body of the pancreas. Chemotherapy was administered to six of the 12 patients. Of the 11 patients who received both intraoperative and external beam irradiation, four are alive without evident disease. The median survival is 15+ months. This pilot study demonstrates the feasibility of combining external beam and intraoperative therapy in a general hospital setting with no operative deaths, a brief postoperative stay, and no wound infections. The late complications of irradiating gastric antrum and duodenum are discussed.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
