Study Shows Proton Therapy Improves Overall Survival in Patients with Chordoma and Chondrosarcoma

Previous research has shown proton therapy to be beneficial in treating these types of tumours. Using protons, health professionals are able to treat chordoma and chondrosarcoma with higher doses of radiation due to the increased accuracy of proton therapy.

Prague Proton Therapy Center Study Shows Proton Therapy Greatly Reduces the Risk of Side Effects Compared with Conventional Radiotherapy

Patients who undergo conventional radiotherapy treatment are exposed to a far greater amount of unnecessary radiation to healthy tissue, in comparison to patients undergoing proton therapy treatment. As a more targeted treatment modality, proton therapy spares a greater quantity of healthy tissue. Treatment plans using proton radiotherapy reduce radiation exposure by 50% compared to conventional radiotherapy treatment.

Extreme Hypofractionated Proton Radiotherapy for Prostate Cancer Using Pencil Beam Scanning: Dosimetry, Acute Toxicity and Preliminary Results

Several treatment options exist for managing prostate cancer in men. Surgery and conventional radiotherapy have been shown to be equally effective at treating prostate cancer, however conventional treatments such as these can result in side effects that can reduce overall quality of life.

Latest Proton Therapy Study Shows Hypofractionated Proton Therapy as Safe and Effective for Patients with Low-risk Prostate Cancer

Proton radiation therapy has demonstrated itself to be an excellent option for low-risk prostate cancer as it delivers high control rates with very little toxicity. Proton beam thereby enhances the physician’s opportunity to minimise risks for the patient.

Proton Beam Therapy vs Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy for Locally Advanced Oesophageal Cancer

Since most of the oesophageal cancers seen in the Western hemisphere (i.e., Europe and the United States) are located in the mid- to distal-oesophageal locations, heart and lungs invariably receive significant radiation doses. Much of the normal tissue exposure could be reduced with the utilisation of advanced radiation technologies such as intensity modulated proton therapy.

Comparative Effectiveness of Proton vs Photon Therapy as Part of Concurrent Chemoradiotherapy for Locally Advanced Cancer

[…] This study found that proton therapy significantly reduced severe adverse events in adults with locally advanced cancers without affecting outcomes when compared with photon therapy.

Superior Intellectual Outcomes After Proton Radiotherapy Compared With Photon Radiotherapy for Pediatric Medulloblastoma

Proton Radiotherapy Preserves Intellectual Function in Children suffering from Medulloblastoma – New study shows that children treated with Proton Therapy have superior intellectual outcomes, compared to children treated with conventional photon/x-ray radiotherapy.

Proton Therapy has the Potential to Reduce the Risk of Long-Term Medical Problems Associated with Anal and Rectal Cancer Treatments​

In a study published by medical researchers at the Harvard Medical School, the potential use of proton therapy was shown to reduce toxicities associated with treatment, increase patient compliance with treatment, minimise treatment interruptions and enables for the possibility of dose escalation (also known as hypofractionation).

New Study Shows Proton Therapy More Effective Than Conventional Radiotherapy In The Treatment Of Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma (ICC)

In a recent study by the Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Radiation Oncology, the use of proton therapy for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma was shown to more effectively control the cancer and improve the chances of survival – particularly in comparison to conventional (photon) radiotherapy.
