Titel:
The role of pentoxifylline as a modifier of radiation therapy. 
Abstract:
Pentoxifylline (Ptx), a hemorrheologic methylxanthine derivative, is of interest in radiation oncology for several reasons. First, improvement of tumor perfusion might result in better oxygenation and thus radiosensitivity. In addition, the drug also influences cytokine-mediated inflammation. The role of cytokines in the progression of radiation reactions in both tumor and normal tissues therefore provides further opportunities to combine Ptx with ionising radiation in order to improve the thera...    »
