The researchers compared bone marrow toxicity levels in 142 patients for lung cancer between January 2003 and June 2008 treated. All patients received chemotherapy; IMRT was administered to 75, while 67 were treated with proton beam therapy journal . After 17 months, patients with concurrent chemotherapy and proton beam therapy treatment were significantly less reduction in hemoglobin , neutrophils and lymphocytes , when they compared to CT and IMRT IMRT. These differences remained when the gross tumor volume was considered. – Our goal is the best way to find cancer cancer without further weakening the patient, said Ritsuko Komaki, approximately 114,000 MD Anderson Department of Radiation Oncology and lead author of the study. Standard care currently offers a 25 % five-year survival rate, but as a physician I have seen how the treatment of the patients affects the general health. Are you tired, suffer from night sweats, are prone to infection and have to compromise their treatment with with proton therapy, we can now have the opportunity to reduce this toxicity so that treatment dosage can be maximized. .

###Besides Komaki and Cox, include MD Anderson researchers contributing to this study Samir V. Xiong Wei MD, Pamela Allen Ph. Richard Amos M. Radhe Mohan, Chang MD, Zhongxing Liao, and Lei Dong, of the Department of Radiation Oncology, radiation Physics and Biostatistics and Applied Mathematics.

The survey was the work from Kate Strully, assistant professor in the Department of Sociology at the University at Albany, New York City, and will soon be published in the May 2009 issue of of the journal demographic released. Strully the research has than Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health and Society Scholar Finance the Harvard School of Public Health.
