Breast cancer is the top one incidence of cancer in women. Whole breast radiation therapy plays an indispensable role in the course of breast cancer treatment, and the radiation dermatitis is the major side effect affected quality of life. Radiation dermatitis can be divided into acute and chronic. Severe acute radiation dermatitis affects the quality of life of patients during the course of treatment, and may cause treatment interruption and affect the efficacy. Chronic radiation dermatitis may cause irreversible skin problems, and lead to so-called "radiation-irritated skin" (radiation-irritated skin) seriously affects the quality of life of breast cancer patients after treatment. This study will enroll 30 breast cancer patients who received whole breast radiation therapy after breast conserving surgery. Subject will receive FR-101 chest dressing and be instructed to use the product on the target skin area accepted radiation therapy once every 2 days, taking care of avoiding applications from 1 to 4 h before treatment to prevent "Build-up" effect. Subjects will need to come back to clinics for assessment weekly during radiotherapy, 2 weeks after radiotherapy, and 6 weeks after radiotherapy. The evaluation includes physical examinations, questionnaire surveys, skin observation and measurements, and photographs. The total study time is at least 3 months. The target area of radiation-irritated skin condition will be observed and graded according to CTCAE rate. The skin physiological parameters will be detected by MoistureMeter SC, Vapometer, SkinColorCatch and HX-YL001 infrared thermometer. Statistical analysis of skin physiological parameters is used to evaluate the efficacy of FR-101 chest dressing on the prevention of acute radiation dermatitis after radiotherapy.
Investigate the effects of CSMed® for preventing and managing radiation dermatitis in patients with Breast cancer and Head-Neck cancer receiving radiotherapy (≥50 Gy).
Routinely collected data on radiation-induced skin toxicity from 2010 to 2022 will be retrospectively analyzed. Data will be split into two cohorts: patients that received 1) StrataXRT and 2) standard of care. The incidence of grade ≥ 2 radiation dermatitis, the time to onset of grade ≥ 2 radiation dermatitis, the radiation dose at onset of grade ≥ 2 radiation dermatitis, the incidence of moist desquamation and the number of treatment interruptions will be compared between the cohorts.
Radiation induced dermatitis (RID) is one of the leading adverse events of radiation therapy, and if occurred could alter the course of therapy. The main pathways of RID is inflammation and oxidative stress on local and systemic bases. Nigella sativa is an herbal medicine whose anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities have been proven in several clinical trials. Thus, the aim of the present study is to evaluate the efficacy of Nigella sativa as a prophylactic method against the development of RID.
to develop a deep learning-based model to grade the severity of radiation dermatitis (RD) and predict the severity of radiation dermatitis in patients with head and neck cancer undergoing radiotherapy, so as to provide support for doctors' diagnosis and prediction.
For breast cancer patients undergoing adjuvant radiotherapy, radiation dermatitis (RD) is a common occurrence that can negatively impact patients' quality of life (QOL). RD often presents as erythema, pruritus, and/or edema and in more severe cases, skin breakage can occur, resulting in moist desquamation. StrataXRT is a silicone-based film-forming topical gel. Recent studies have shown the benefits of StrataXRT, but with mixed results. A recent randomized controlled trial published in 2022 found that in breast cancer patients (n=100), the use of StrataXRT significantly reduced the mean size of the radiation-induced dermatitis area (p=0.002) when compared to the control group. Additionally, another study (n=49) demonstrated significant differences in the Erythema Index (EI) (p=0.001) and Melanin Index (MI) (p=0.005) between StrataXRT compared to the use of Xderm, a moisturizer cream. To validate the finding of the previous studies a pilot study testing the efficacy of StrataXRT has been proposed. In this study, 50 patients will use Strata XRT on their breast/chest wall during radiation treatment. Their skin will be assessed throughout and post-treatment. Investigators hypothesize the severity of skin reactions will be less for patients using Strata XRT when compared to historical data from our centre.
The aim of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of StrataXRT® in comparison to standard of care (defined using the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events [CTCAE], version 5.0) by assessing the severity of inguinal RD in patients receiving elective radiation therapy +/- systemic therapy to the bilateral inguinal nodes.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether bacterial decolonization of the nares and skin, topical steroid therapy, or a combination of the two regimens prior to treatment with radiotherapy (RT) for breast and head and neck cancer patients can prevent grade 2 or higher grade radiation dermatitis (RD) graded via the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) scale and improve quality of life.
Current clinical practice for preventing and treating radiation dermatitis across Queensland (QLD) Health Radiation Oncology departments involves the application of aqueous cream daily to the skin of the treatment site, commencing from Day 1 of EBRT. The primary aim of this study is to assess the efficacy of StrataXRT when compared to current clinical practice in preventing and managing radiation dermatitis.
Radiotherapy is a mainstay of treatment in head and neck cancer and breast cancer treatment, typically following surgery and/or chemotherapy. Radiation dermatitis, which involves redness, dryness, and/or peeling of the skin, occurs in up to 95% of patients receiving radiation therapy. There is currently no standard therapy for this treatment-related adverse effect. The aim of this study is to investigate the safety and tolerability (Phase I) and preliminary efficacy (Phase II) of prophylactic esomeprazole cream ( termed "Dermaprazole") in patients who require radiation for either breast cancer in the postmastectomy setting or head and neck cancer in the definitive or adjuvant setting.
