Radiotherapy in multiple fractions per day for prostatic carcinoma late complications

, : Radiotherapy in multiple fractions per day for prostatic carcinoma late complications. International Journal of Radiation Oncology, Biology, Physics 12(9): 1589-1596

The late complications associated with two different irradiation schedules with multiple fractions per day (MFD) used for the treatment of prostatic carcinoma are analyzed in 91 patients. There is a relatively high rate of side-effects with fifteen patients (16.5%) developing severe complications due to the radiotherapy. Complications are generally localized in the urinary system and consist mainly of chronic cystitis and incontinence, with only a few exclusive gastro-intestinal problems. The causative factor seems to be a pronounced fibrosis of the normal pelvic tissues.

Apigenin, a natural plant flavone, may have chemopreventive and therapeutic potentials for anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-cancer. Nevertheless, the anti-tumor effect of apigenin on human head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is n...
