      Some tumors are quite insensitive, or radio resistant - for example melanoma. Lack of Oxygen (hypoxia) in the center of tumors leads to radio resistance. Chemotherapy acts as a radiation sensitizer (makes the RT more effective) and can also make side effects from radiation more severe. All cancer cells vary in sensitivity depending on their. Radiation can damage health in ways other than cancer. It is less likely, but damage to genetic material in reproductive cells can cause genetic mutations, which could be passed on to future generations. Exposing a developing embryo or fetus to radiation can increase the risk of birth Size: KB.

Radiation Sensitizer Agents possessing significant ability to augment the effect of radiation Super / sub-additive . Indeed, this renders hyperthermia as one of the most effective radiation sensitizers known. The basis for this effect is that hyperthermia has the ability to kill cells that are under conditions of hypoxia, low pH and that are in the S-phase of cell division, which are all conditions that render cells resistant to by:

J Clin Oncol 28(18)– PubMed CrossRef Google Scholar. In the treatment of malignant disease with combinations of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, it is important to draw distinctions between adjunctive agents, so-called potentiating agents, and true radiation sensitizers (Bleehen, ).

This is illustrated by Fig. by:   5-Fluorouracil. One of the first agents to be exploited as a radiation sensitizer was 5FU, and the basis for its action is currently thought to be primarily from thymidilate synthase inhibition ().Interestingly, noncytotoxic concentrations of 5FU can also increase radiation sensitivity in vitro, but only when cells are incubated with drug before radiation.

In principle, radiation sensitizers with therapeutic ratios greater than that of misonidazole can be obtained either by increasing sensitizing efficiency, decreasing toxicity or preferably both. This paper illustrates, firstly that a 5-nitroimidazole (S73–) with an electron affinity close to that of metronidazole shows sensitizing Cited by: 8.

Most radiation sensitizers in this class target the cell cycle, DNA repair, or pathways known to be involved in survival after irradiation.

Alternatively, agents may take advantage of the unique aspects of tumor physiology to enhance the sensitivity of resistant tumor clones, such as by targeting vasculature or selectively sensitizing hypoxic Cited by: Popular Radiation Books Showing of 66 The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women (Hardcover) by.

Cammarata, Giorgio Russo, G. Radiation therapy has shown encouraging treatment efficacy on many types of tumors. However, the side effects from accumulated high dosage during radiation therapy hindered its wide application in some cases.

The other approach that has enormous appeal involves the use of radiation sensitizers. If a drug selectively sensitizes the tumor, one could have a selective escalation of the effective biologic dose to the tumor, and therefore improve local control without increasing by:
