Breast cancer patients in post-operative radiotherapy (RT) often experience acute skin reactions like erythema, pain, itching and oversensitivity. In 2014 a New Zealand randomized controlled trial (RCT) investigated the prophylactic use of safetac-based film, Mepitel Film, on half of the breast during RT compared to cream, resulting in significant differences in skin moist desquamation (0% vs. 26%). Despite changes in treatment modalities in Denmark toward lower total RT doses, the level of RT-induced skin toxicity could still be of great importance for the patients. The aim of this study is patient-reported symptoms and patient-reported experiences with the prophylactic use of Mepitel Film compared to standard cream treatment.
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.
This study aims to evaluate the impact of PEMF on acute radiodermatitis in breast cancer patient and post mastectomy patients.
Investigate the effects of CSMed® for preventing and managing radiation dermatitis in patients with Breast cancer and Head-Neck cancer receiving radiotherapy (≥50 Gy).
The study cream is to be evaluated in a multicenter, randomized, controlled clinical study carried out in 2 hospitals, in the Radiation Oncology service of Valencia to evaluate its radioprotective and radiomitigation effect in the prophylactic treatment of acute radiodermatitis caused by radiation. A total of 82 patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN) were are going to be randomized in a study. Patients receive the study topical cream or "standard" skin care from Hospitals where the study is carried out. All patients will be treated with a combination of fractionated radiotherapy and platinum-based chemotherapy OR cetuximab for curative purposes. The main objective of the study cream is to obtain a reduction in the number of patients who experience acute radiation dermatitis grade 3 or 4 (NCI CTCAE version 4.03) to grade 2, the last day of treatment. As a secondary objective, to obtain a reduction in the number of patients experiencing grade 3 or 4 to grade 0 acute radiation dermatitis, within a month of finish treatment. All patients will be evaluated periodically. The skin is photographed irradiated and all changes of radiation dermatitis are classified. The valuation of the radiodermatitis will be carried out objectively using a thermograph. In addition, the patients who complete questionnaires about their quality of life (QLQ-C30). These Questionnaires are answered in weeks 1, 2, 3 and 4 of treatment, as well as at the end of the radiation therapy or chemotherapy. For the primary endpoint of radiodermatitis with CTCAE ≥ grade 2, assessments are made according to the protocol (PP), in addition to the primary intention-to-treat (ITT) approach. In this PP analysis, the patients are excluded according to protocol definition or meeting decisions preanalysis, respectively. The study is designed as a randomized trial with a 1:1 allocation to the two groups. The secondary objective is to study a reduction in the percentage of patients experiencing radiation dermatitis with a maximum CTCAE grade 3 or 4 during the period of treatment and in the follow-up period of one month, thanks to the application of the cream of study.
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 treatment of cancer as a multidimensional disease has improved in recent years with the development of new chemotherapies, targeted biological therapies or radiation therapy protocols and have led to an overall improvement in the survival of oncology patients. These treatments often cause adverse effects on the skin, which can be accompanied by physical and mental suffering and have a significant impact on patients' quality of life. Improving the quality of life of patients is today a therapeutic challenge. The objective of this clinical study is to assess the tolerability of an innovative skin cosmetic product that will be developed specifically for use during curative anticancer treatments, as well as to study the impact on quality of life of skin side effects caused by the treatments.
