Significant Clinical Benefit of Pemetrexed-based Chemotherapy for Advanced Diffuse Malignant Peritoneal Mesothelioma: A Case Presentation

Indian Journal of Medical and Paediatric Oncology 2017 January-March [Link] Peitl M, Seiwerth S, Bašić-Koretić M, Šantek F Abstract Diffuse malignant peritoneal mesothelioma (DMPM) is generally an understudied disease, largely because most molecular and clinical studies of mesothelioma have been conducted in patients with the more common malignant pleural mesothelioma. We present the case of […]

A pilot study of volumetric-modulated arc therapy for malignant pleural mesothelioma

Journal of Applied Clinical Medical Physics 2016 March [Link] Runxiao L1, Yankun C1, Lan W Abstract Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is an extremely difficult disease to treat. This pilot study investigates the feasibility of using volumetric-modulated arc therapy (VMAT) for malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM), and compares VMAT to static field intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) for five […]
