Description of the research topic:
Our aim is to examine the efficacy of up to date radiotherapy and chemoradiotherapy practice in case of locally advanced and metastatic chest cancers, particularly in lung cancers. We investigate the advantages of the application of intensity modulated radiotherapy and image guided radiotherapy both in curative and palliative setting, possessing the availability of a linear accelerator with a capacity for high quality treatment. We also perform experiments involving the in vitro and in vivo examination of the poly(ADP-ribose) polimerase /PARP/ enzyme inhibition related radiosenzitisation effect in a collaboration with the Department of Biochemistry and Medical Chemistry.
