What a great turnout last night, many come afar to honor Dr Garden. It’s been an honor to have served as president of the the past two years and to have honored my hero Dr Garden with the Fletcher medal before I hand the gavel to . The future is bright!

Certainly, hypothesis generating. Just consistent observations from retrospective data across disease sites from hundreds of studies

We do to a certain degree. Part of our weekly assessment form grades fatigue, anorexia, dysphagia, pain, etc, according to CTCAEv5. Our certified dieticians follow each of the radiation patient to track food intake and requirement for assistance

Recall that for photon treatment (regardless 3D or IMRT, which was also shown in our Green J paper in 2017) the 90 day mortality is 4% in high volume centers; that is 1% in PBT in our series. For the RCT, there were 30 IMRT pts had surgery, so 4% is essentially 1 of 30 pts.

Sorry to have missed it; I was traveling and had to spend time with the host in the evening. small; only 47.7% had surgery. There were 3 grade 5 tox, and one died 47 days after surgery due to ARDS, PNA, two others before surgery. All 3 were IMRT. No 90 day mortality in PBT.

Lymphopenia is not part of the TTB but it is part of secondary endpoint

Yes, it was completely validated. It is in the paper that is in press. Please have a look.

This just one of many studies from all cancer sites treated with radiation therapy that have shown the immune suppressed state induced by radiation therapy that compromises survival. It’s time to mitigate this often ignored toxicity of radiation therapy.

Would love to join. We can also talk about this in the context of total toxicity burden, the paper for esophagus is now in press in JCO

Important results, and in line with recently presented Chinese ESCC RCT of 50 vs 60 Gy showing no benefit of high dose except more toxic with 60 Gy.
