Inter-observer variability of organ contouring for preclinical studies with cone beam Computed Tomography imaging

In preclinical radiation studies, there is great interest in quantifying the radiation response of healthy tissues. Manual contouring has significant impact on the treatment-planning because of variation introduced by human interpretation. This results in inconsistencies when assessing normal tissue volumes.

Sequence of αPD-1 relative to local tumor irradiation determines the induction of abscopal antitumor immune responses

Although radiotherapy has been used for over a century to locally control tumor growth, alone it rarely induces an abscopal response or systemic antitumor immunity capable of inhibiting distal tumors outside of the irradiation field. Results from recent studies suggest that combining immune checkpoint blockades to radiotherapy may enhance abscopal activity. Published 2021

Combined Treatment with Dopamine Receptor Antagonists and Radiation Creates a Metabolic Vulnerability in Mouse Models of Glioblastoma

Glioblastoma is the deadliest brain tumor in adults and the standard-of-care consists of surgery followed by radiation and treatment with temozolomide. Overall survival times for patients suffering from glioblastoma are unacceptably low indicating an unmet need for novel treatment options. Published 2020

OSMR controls glioma stem cell respiration and confers resistance of glioblastoma to ionizing radiation

Glioblastoma contains a rare population of self-renewing brain tumor stem cells (BTSCs) which are endowed with properties to proliferate, spur the growth of new tumors, and at the same time, evade ionizing radiation (IR) and chemotherapy. Published: 17 August 2020

Replacement of Cesium Irradiators with Alternative Technologies.

The University of California possesses a large number of Cs irradiators that are used in a wide variety of medical and research applications. A Radioactive Source Replacement Working Group of involved faculty was formed to study the topic and to make recommendations as to when alternative technologies could offer equivalency.
