Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Topic is the second edition of the Topic “Cancer Biology and Radiation Therapy”, available at

Radiation therapy or radiotherapy, often abbreviated as RT, RTx, or XRT, uses ionizing radiation, generally provided as part of cancer treatment to control or kill malignant cells and usually delivered by a linear accelerator. Radiation therapy may be curative in several types of cancer if they are localized to one area of the body. It may also be used as part of adjuvant therapy to prevent tumor recurrence after surgery to remove a primary malignant tumor (for example, early stages of breast cancer). Radiation therapy is synergistic with chemotherapy and has been used before, during, and after chemotherapy in susceptible cancers. The subspecialty of oncology concerned with radiotherapy is called radiation oncology.
