Abstract

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this workshop summary is to provide an overview of preclinical and clinical data on combined-modality radiotherapy.

METHODS AND MATERIALS:

The 8th Annual Radiation Workshop at Round Top was held April 13-16, 2000 at the International Festival Institute (Round Top, TX).

RESULTS:

Presentations by 30 speakers (from Germany, Netherlands, Australia, England, and France along with U.S. participants and M. D. Anderson Cancer Center faculty) formed the framework for discussions on the current status and future perspectives of biology-based combined-modality radiotherapy.

CONCLUSION:

Cellular and molecular pathways available for radiation modification by chemical and biologic agents are numerous, providing new opportunities for translational research in radiation oncology and for more effective combined-modality treatment of cancer.
