Moffitt researchers discover liver metastases have different radiation sensitivities

Radiation is a commonly used therapeutic option to treat liver metastases, with the majority of tumours maintained under control after one year. However, some patients do not respond as well to radiation treatment, and the factors that predict patient outcomes are unclear. Moffitt Cancer Center researchers report that liver metastases have different sensitivities to radiation therapy based on the location of the primary tumour.
