OTTAWA — The Telegraph-Journal in New Brunswick has been named the winner of the 2018 Michener Award, which honours excellence in public-service journalism.The Saint John-based newspaper was nominated for an 18-month investigation that exposed problems with New Brunswick’s ambulance service. The newspaper uncovered a severe shortage of paramedics that left ambulances sitting empty, leaving some people in emergency situations to be transported in regular vehicles.The finalists for the award included work by the Waterloo Region Record; the St. Catharines Standard; CBC TV News; the Toronto Star, CBC News and Radio-Canada; and APTN and CBC North.Gov. Gen. Julie Payette presented the award to the winner Friday at a ceremony at Rideau Hall. The Michener Award was founded in 1970 by former governor general Roland Michener.lan Allnutt, president of the Michener Awards Foundation, praised the winning entry and paid tribute to the finalists in a news release.“There were many stellar entries to the Micheners this year — powerful work which uncovered political corruption, gave voice to the voiceless, changed laws — but none more transformative than this series,” Allnutt said. “It was a major issue in the 2018 provincial elections and gave rise to a new government championing a wide-ranging overhaul of the ambulance system.”The Waterloo Region Record was nominated for Greg Mercer’s months-long investigation of the health problems inflicted on workers by the once-important rubber industry in Kitchener, Ont.The St. Catharines Standard earned its nomination for reporter Grant LaFleche’s year-long investigation that led to more than 50 stories on a conspiracy behind the hiring of the top bureaucrat in Ontario’s Niagara region.CBC TV News was nominated for an investigation by the program “The Fifth Estate” into long-standing claims by Transport Canada that school buses are safer without seatbelts, contrary to the department’s own conclusion that they would have prevented numerous deaths and thousands of injuries.The Toronto Star, CBC News and Radio-Canada received a joint nod for their collaboration with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists that shone a light on lax approval, regulation and oversight of the country’s medical-device industry.APTN and CBC North earned a joint nomination after they exposed failures in the child-welfare system that led to physical abuse and neglect of Indigenous teens. The reporting led to a public apology by the Yukon government for its failure to protect the youths as well as corrective actions.The Canadian Press
Henry Winkler, actor, director, author and philanthropist, is partnering with National Stroke Association to celebrate caregivers during National Family Caregivers Month this November.Henry’s mother suffered a stroke in 1987 and lived with the results for more than 10 years. Her challenges after her stroke included walking, upper limb spasticity and limited use of her left side. Even though she received extensive therapy, her recovery was minimal and very difficult. Henry watched as she struggled and lost her joy. To date, he feels his most challenging role was being a caregiver to his mother after her stroke. Henry has joined National Stroke Association’s Faces of Stroke campaign to remind other caregivers about the importance of their role on the healthcare team.Read more and watch a video of Henry Winkler discussing his role as a Faces of Stroke Ambassador.There are more than 65 million family caregivers in the U.S., each with a unique story. Caregivers and family members play a vital role in a stroke survivor’s recovery. They’re the ones who look after a stroke survivor’s needs, which may be emotional, financial, physical, social or practical. Caregivers must strike a balance between taking care of both their loved ones and themselves. They must put their own needs first and protect their own health in order to provide their loved ones with the best care possible. Caregivers can find coping strategies through National Stroke Association’s iHOPE: When Caregiving Is Stressful webinar or by connecting with more than 1,700 other caregivers at Careliving(SM) Community, an online community that provides a place for discussion, connection and support.National Stroke Association launched the Faces of Stroke campaign in 2011, and has supplemented it with new mini-campaigns that delve into specific stroke topics, such as caregiving. Caregivers are—hands down—a vital piece of stroke recovery, which can last a lifetime. But their own health is often overlooked. “National Stroke Association wants to recognize and honor caregivers this month,” said Jim Baranski, the organization’s chief executive officer. “We hope to hear many more stories about how people of all ages and backgrounds take on this role, voluntarily and involuntarily.”“We believe that stroke survivors and those who play key roles in their lives have the power to influence healthy behaviors through storytelling,” said Mr Baranski. “You just have to give them the opportunity. Anyone affected by stroke—no matter the connection—can have a role in raising awareness by telling their stories and sharing them with people they care about.”National Stroke Association’s Faces of Stroke public awareness campaign aims to change the public perceptions of stroke through sharing personal stories. The Faces of Stroke campaign features an online gallery of hundreds of stroke champions’ stories and photos, an easy-to-use online story submission tool, educational information about stroke and opportunities to share stories socially through Facebook, Twitter and email.

VANCOUVER – The president of Pacific Northwest LNG, which is looking to build a multibillion-dollar project near Prince Rupert, B.C., has resigned, the consortium led by Malaysian energy giant Petronas said Friday.Pacific Northwest LNG said Greg Kist plans to return to his home and family in Alberta.“Under Greg’s leadership, the company was formed and continues to work towards a final investment decision this year,” Pacific Northwest chairman Dato’ Wee Yiaw Hin said in a statement.“He leaves Pacific NorthWest LNG as a strong company with an excellent management team and a committed, dedicated group of employees.”Progress Energy chief executive Michael Culbert, who also serves as a director of Pacific Northwest LNG, will add the role of acting president of the company.Shell applauds B.C. for halving tax on multibillion-dollar LNG projectsB.C. remains ‘high-cost environment’ despite lower LNG tax rates, industry group saysProgress Energy is owned by Petronas.Pacific Northwest LNG is one of several groups developing an liquefied natural gas project on the West Coast.The company said earlier this week that it was reviewing the details of the B.C. government’s new tax on liquefied natural gas. The CEO of Petronas had raised concerns that an earlier version of the tax, along with a sluggish regulatory process, had put the economics of the proposed export facility into question.
While a number of steps have been taken to address the scourge of sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA), the former deputy head of the United Nations peacekeeping mission in the Central African Republic (CAR) has urged continued vigilance to ensure that the world body’s personnel do no harm while carrying out their duties. “We can never take anything for granted. Every day, every step of the way, every time we set up a new mission, every time you deploy a new contingent, you’ve got to put in place the measures that are going to stamp out SEA. And we’ve got to keep doing it,” said Diane Corner.Since 2014, Ms. Corner, a British national, served as the Secretary-General’s Deputy Special Representative with the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in CAR (MINUSCA).The past few years have been particularly challenging for the CAR, a country of 4.5 million people that was plunged into civil conflict in 2013. According to the UN, more than half the population is in dire need of assistance. Despite significant progress and successful elections, CAR has remained in the grip of instability and sporadic unrest. In addition, MINUSCA – which was deployed with the aim of protecting civilians, supporting the transition process and facilitating humanitarian assistance, among other tasks – has been dealing with numerous allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse by its personnel.“It was a huge shock to the Mission,” Ms. Corner recalled in an interview with UN News upon the completion of her assignment, adding that it “really turned us upside down” in the way it approached the problem. “I insisted that we should be transparent. I insisted that we should try and adopt a victim-centred approach. I say try because, in a country like the Central African Republic, there’s not much by way of provision for anybody actually, anybody in need. So you have to do your best to use the services that were available and maximize that.”In the wake of the allegations that arose in CAR, as well as in other missions, the UN took a number of measures to prevent such abuses; to respond quickly and effectively to allegations that come to light; to protect and support victims; and to demand zero impunity – recognizing that in the case of uniformed personnel, accountability is a shared responsibility requiring action by Member States.Ms. Corner noted that what happened in CAR prompted the UN system as a whole to address the problem of sexual exploitation and abuse in “a completely different way” now. “So if there’s any good that’s come out of this, it’s the fact that the chances of it happening again are reduced but I think we need to be constantly vigilant,” she stressed. “We can never take anything for granted. “Every day, every step of the way, every time we set up a new mission, every time you deploy a new contingent, you’ve got to put in place the measures that are going to stamp out SEA. And we’ve got to keep doing it.” VIDEO: The former deputy chief of the UN mission in CAR, Diane Corner, listed highlights during her tenure, including Pope Francis’ visit and the country’s elections.Ms. Corner also pointed out that it makes a “huge difference” having women in leadership positions in the UN. “Obviously, you see things differently,” she noted. “Not to say that there aren’t some men who’ve been fantastic champions of the fight against SEA, and we’ve had some of them in our mission as well. “I think women have more of an understanding of what it means for the victims, and maybe have more of an insight as to how to have a more holistic response to ensure that we really are taking this seriously and that we’re doing everything that we can.”She added that often the protagonists and the combatants are men, while women are the ones who suffer. “We’ve seen in CAR for example, that between communities, when there are problems, when there are tensions, it’s very often the women coming back together again who re-create the bonds between communities. “And I think women take… a longer-term view because they think of the coming generation, of their children, and so they’ll really invest in trying to ensure that peace is restored, that they can look after their families,” she stated. “I just think that they can be a very powerful force for good.”Ms. Corner added that the importance of MINUSCA cannot be overstated. “In CAR, if MINUSCA wasn’t there, you would’ve had a genocide,” she stated. “In my mind, there’s no doubt we’ve saved tens and tens of thousands of lives in CAR, no doubt at all.”
“But those hot spots will still be in the locations we are talking about. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. Toxic levels of the nerve agent used to attack Sergei Skripal and his daughter could still be present at “hot spots” around Salisbury, Government scientists have warned.A small amount of the deadly Novichok substance is thought to have been used in liquid form to target the former Russian agent, 66, and Yulia, 33.Work is to begin decontaminating nine locations across the city where experts think the substance could still be present, in a multi million-pound operation which could take months to complete.Officials from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), joined local council, police and health representatives to update residents on the clean-up process at a public meeting on Thursday evening.Asked whether the chemical remains at the same “lethal” level as the day it was put on Mr Skripal’s door, Defra’s chief scientific adviser Ian Boyd said: “We have to make an assumption that in certain circumstances there will be relatively high concentrations, probably in very, very specific locations, which could be at levels that could be toxic to individuals.”That’s an assumption, it’s also one we’ve tested in some circumstances and we do know that there are hot spots like that around, so we have to make those assumptions that some of the hot spots we’ve still got to find. Deputy Chief Constable Paul Mills from Wiltshire Police said it would be “business as usual” as operations move to other sites in and around the city.Other areas earmarked for chemical cleaning include two ambulance stations, a car compound and the home of poisoned police officer Nick Bailey.Mr Skripal’s home, which is still part of the police investigation, will be the last to be decontaminated. “In these locations, there may well be higher concentrations that we still have to find, but we already know there are some high concentrations within those locations.”The meeting was held as work began to replace police cordons around the Maltings area in the city centre, the nearby Zizzi restaurant and the Mill pub with more robust hoardings.Residents were told the Bourne Hill building, housing Salisbury’s police station as well as Wiltshire council’s offices will close for up to eight weeks from Friday.The decontamination work will focus on the evidence room and two lockers inside the station, which were sealed off after the March 4 attack.
She said: “We think someone has dumped the new geese as two of them have been tagged with orange round numbers. They just appeared among our gaggle of geese that we have in the village about four weeks ago down by the field. I got an email from a lady saying 3 geese have appeared and she asked me if I knew anything about it. I contacted the rest of the councillors and nobody knew where the geese had come from. Upavon, a rural village in Wiltshire, is well known for the flock of seventeen domestic geese that have peacefully lived side by side with the locals for decadesCredit:Wessex News Agency A flock of unruly geese are causing havoc in Salisbury, as local residents say they are “living in fear” after complaining that the birds are biting children and chasing them off the school bus.Upavon, a rural village in Wiltshire, is well known for the flock of seventeen domestic white geese that have peacefully lived side by side with the locals for decades.But last month three ‘rogue’ geese made a new home for themselves in Avon Square and have disrupted the everyday routines of the 1200 local residents ever since.There have been multiple reports of geese attacking parked vehicles, hurting family pets and preventing locals from getting to work by blocking their cars.The birds, which are believed to be ‘farmyard’ white geese, were spotted by a concerned villager who noticed orange tags on two of their legs four weeks ago.Mandy Wernham, a Parish councillor who lives nearby, is hoping that a swift solution is found so that the geese are stopped from “terrorising the neighbourhood” any further. “The other morning I had to sit in my car in my dressing gown when I came back from dropping my son at work at about 6.30am. “They surrounded the car and I had to wait for them to go away before I dared get out. The other geese, the flock that has lived here peacefully for years, cause no problem at all and are very popular with villagers.”“The other day I saw the geese chasing children after they got off the school bus.The poor children had to run for their lives and other people have been bitten,” Ms Wernham added.The councillor took to social media to try and get advice on how best to deal with the intruders.Ms Wernham has appealed for people not to feed the geese in the hope they will move on.She said: “I think at first they tried to join the other geese but they were not having any of it so they have moved up here and they are quite nasty. The three of them are terrorising the neighbourhood and attacking cars and people alike.”It is believed that a local farmer, who has been having a problem with foxes attacking his livestock, may take them as ‘minders’ to protect his chickens.

For many years, mineral processing plant operators have battled with leakage problems, searching for valves which will isolate the flow and prevent leaks to the atmosphere, but are often left feeling frustrated and out of pocket. External leaks from valves during valve cycling are common problems for plant operators around the world. These leaks can have disastrous consequences, contaminating the environment and endangering workers with hazardous materials, resulting in major down time for the company. Delta Industrial knife gate valves from Weir Minerals can guarantee plant operators in difficult process applications to have zero leakage, John Abbott, Weir Minerals Global Product Manager for Valves states. “This isolation is very important because it ensures safe and consistent plant operation, minimises downtime and provides lowest total ownership cost.”“Our customers can install Delta Industrial valves into problem areas secure in the knowledge that they will achieve long term performance with exceptional isolation results, protecting their people, their plant and their environment,” Abbott continues. Protecting the environment and ensuring hazardous materials do not harm workers is of prime importance for every site around the world. Weir Minerals Delta Industrial guided shear gate valves are designed to repeatedly close and provide bi-directional zero leakage isolation no matter what the process fluid may contain. “Our knife gate valves guarantee no process will come past the closed valve, even abrasive slurry or when operating under high temperatures.”Delta Industrial Valves, Inc. was founded in 1987 and the company began designing and manufacturing high quality knife gate valves in 1989. At the time, they recognised the urgent requirements within the market for a superior knife gate valve. “Weir Minerals acquired Delta Industrial Valves, Inc in July 2015, increasing our market presence in hard rock mining, oil sands, pulp and paper and power industries by expanding our portfolio of valve products. Weir Minerals is a global leader in the mining and oil sands markets and the acquisition of Delta Industrial Valves, Inc strengthens our comprehensive offering to customers with a range of high performance knife gate valves for heavy duty slurry application and high pressure environments.”“Their construction provides a zero leakage guarantee to external environments due to their unique transverse seal design, couple this with Delta Industrial’s long history in the design and production of valves, it consistently proves to be one of the highest performing valves in these heavy duty applications.” The Delta Industrial shear gate design combined with its unique seating arrangement ensures exceptional pipeline isolation and zero leakage to the atmosphere, resulting in performance our customers can rely on every time the valve operates. “Although there are at least five distinct types of knife gate valves marketed in the industry, we only produce absolute knife gate valves in our Delta Industrial range, capable of cutting, shearing, and closing against solids while still producing a tight shut-off.”The unique knife gate valve design is capable of offering the highest performance in the most severe applications where solids are in solution, suspension or both. “This makes it the world’s premium isolation valve for scaling applications where traditional valves are inoperable due to cementation or precipitation of solids.” Delta Industrial knife gate valves even operate in clear solutions, an area where traditional knife gate valves are not appropriate.Abbott also says that they can design and build a tailored valve solution for customers if they have a special requirement, “providing them with a unique solution to their specific application. Our knife gate valves have demonstrated their ability to deliver low costs of ownership over the life of the valve, resulting in reduced downtime and increasing productivity for our customers. The valve manufacturing process employs tight tolerances and minimum clearances to ensure reliable performance and the longevity of the highly engineered product.”“Within the oil sands sector, the Delta Industrial knife gate valves provide innovative, custom products that are well suited for the harsh process of this industry. The valves are heavily entrenched in the oil sands process, where performance is critical and leakage, both external and internal, cannot be tolerated.”In hard rock mining, “a large international mining company was repairing a major valve on their tailings line every three months. This was proving to be extremely inefficient and costly. They asked us to help solve this problem which was costing them time and money. A Delta Industrial knife gate valve was specified and installed, this valve has now been operating for four years without any unscheduled maintenance.”The team at Weir Minerals are currently working on complementing their range of ASME 600 rated valves. There are also developments currently being tested which will provide enhanced performance in high pressure applications. “We are all very excited about the product development and new design innovations to help our customers and cannot wait to see these unfold,” Abbott says.
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Veteran NT Labor MP Kon Vatskalis has announced he is to quit politics after 13 years in the Northern Territory’s Legislative Assembly.Speaking to Neos Kosmos this week Mr Vatskalis said that he wanted to concentrate on his family. “I achieved many things I wanted to achieve, and 13 years in the NT parliament takes a lot out of you,” he said.“I didn’t see my children growing up, I was always at work, and I’ve decided to change that. Goodbye politics, hello family.”Mr Vatskalis was born in Cephalonia in 1956 and grew up in Athens where he went on to study public sector management. In the Greek capital he first became involved in politics, taking part in the pro-democracy rallies of the mid-1970s that successfully campaigned for the abolition of the monarchy.In 1983 Kon emigrated to WA to find that his Greek qualifications were not recognised. Forced to start again, he enrolled at Curtin University in Perth, gained a degree in environmental health and joined the Australian Labor Party. In Perth, Kon was responsible for creating WA Labor’s first Greek branch and ran as a candidate at the 1986 state elections. After ten years as an environmental health officer and surveyor, he relocated to the NT where – in addition to his work in the health sector – he hosted a Greek community radio show and presented a weekly Greek TV news segment for SBS.Nominated for the seat of Casuarina at the 2001 elections, despite predictions to the contrary, Kon went on to win, giving Labor victory in Darwin’s northern suburbs for the first time. The election saw Labor take the reins of government by one seat after the Country Liberal Party had held power for 27 years. Under Chief Minister Clare Martin he was given immediate ministerial office. Widely respected, he was appointed to a range of portfolios during Labor’s time in office.Mr Vatskalis – who was primary industry minister when his federal Labor counterpart Joe Ludwig suspended live cattle exports in June 2011 – said his 11 years in the NT cabinet was the “hardest I have worked in my life”.The responsible minister during the Montara oil spill in 2009 – when an offshore rig burned for weeks, dumping millions of litres of crude oil into the Timor Sea – the disaster sparked intense debate over the Territory and federal government’s responsibilities over the affair.Mr Vatskalis was also minister for health and child protection – portfolios which he says presented the toughest challenges.“I worked hard and I achieved … a stand-alone department for child protection, putting extra money there, putting more people, because many times I woke up in the middle of the night thinking about the sad stories I heard during the day,” he said.“We focussed on Indigenous children. This government has not…” Mr Vatskalis said.The CLP has reversed the former minister’s call on child protection sitting outside the Health Department.Mr Vatskalis describes the federally-funded oncology unit at Royal Darwin Hospital as one of Labor’s most profound achievements in the Territory.“We have the most modern oncology centre in Australia. So good that Western Australia… wants to send people for renal dialysis to Alice Springs. Obviously we did something right,” he said.The Casuarina MP will retire from the NT parliament after this month’s sittings. Kon said that candidates in the ensuing by-election (the electorate numbers less than 5,000 voters) would do well to hit the streets and press the flesh.“You know everybody. You know their wedding anniversary, you know their dog’s name, that’s a very different relationship to anywhere else in Australia,” he said.

Share There’s more rain falling on some parts of the U.S. than there used to be, and many towns just aren’t ready for the flooding that follows.Ellicott City, Md., is one such community. Nestled in a valley west of Baltimore, the town was founded in 1772, and some Revolutionary War-era buildings still house businesses along the narrow main street in historic downtown. It also sits at the confluence of three streams.That downtown was largely destroyed by a flash flood in 2016. Main street was a raging river, tearing off awnings and sweeping away cars and dumpsters. Two people died.It took millions of dollars and more than a year of work to rebuild. Then, on Memorial Day weekend this year, just as many businesses were reopening, the same thing happened. A thunderstorm dropped about 8 inches of rain in three hours, the road became a river, and a man was killed.“This is our new normal,” says Kevin Bloom, whose family has owned West End Service, a local commercial truck dealership, since the 1920s. He’s standing in front of a boxy garage, looking across the parking lot that should be full of vehicles waiting to be sold or fixed.Until recently, Bloom cleared out the parking lot only in special situations — like when the remnants of a hurricane made their way up the coast. Now, the almost-daily thunderstorm warnings in this area make him nervous.“Any time there’s a threat of a storm, we move things out of the way. That’s how we have to operate,” he explains, pointing up the hill where he parked his inventory. “We have real estate that we can’t use [during] certain times of year, because there’s always a threat of a storm. And it’s not a tropical storm, it’s a thunderstorm.”Scientists say there are two reasons for flash floods like the ones that have hit Ellicott City: more rain, and nothing to soak up the water.“As we increase the greenhouse gas concentration, the Earth is heating. The air warms up, the oceans warm up, and more water vapor goes into the atmosphere,” explains Donald Boesch, the former director of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science. “And, if we can remember from fourth grade, [the] water cycle — whatever goes up has to come down.”Warmer air and water have led to more precipitation in some parts of the United States.“It’s a matter of both frequency and the amount of rain that comes in these extreme events,” Boesch says. “For the Northeast, about 53 percent more rain is falling in these extreme rainfall events.”According to the 2014 National Climate Assessment, the Northeast and Midwest are seeing the largest increases in heavy rain. Even in the Southwestern U.S., the amount of rain that falls during severe storms is increasing, even as climate change also increases drought risk.All that rain has fewer and fewer places to go.“We have altered the watershed so that the water runs off more rapidly,” Boesch says. Parking lots, roads and roofs make the ground less permeable.For every new parking lot or wider road, communities should also expand drainage systems such as stormwater retention ponds and larger storm drains.But many places, big and small, haven’t kept up with both development and climate change. For example, Houston is scrambling to expand reservoirs and reinforce bayous after Hurricane Harvey overwhelmed the city’s drainage systems with more than 50 inches of rain last year.On a smaller scale, something similar is playing out in places such as Ellicott City.“Merchants and property owners are the ones who pay the price,” for the increased flood risk, says Ron Peters, an Ellicott City resident and member of a local flood control working group.Peters says the state and federal governments should help the county upgrade its drainage infrastructure upstream of Ellicott City. “I’ve walked the watershed, I’ve driven through it hundreds of times. That’s where the problem is,” he says. “We need to build retention ponds, and we need to make the existing ponds bigger.”Bloom, the auto dealer, says drainage infrastructure does need to be updated, but that with more rain coming more frequently, some buildings may need to be removed.“The approach needs to change,” he says. In the future, “some homes may not be where they currently are, because they need to give it back to the stream.”That might include the home where his grandmother was born. In 2016, the house was badly damaged by the floodwater. They rebuild and added sealing doors and other protections, but it made little difference — last week’s storm damaged the foundation and left the the home unlivable again.It’s becoming clearer and clearer to him that, if the floods are here to stay, the house may have to go.

Credit: UCLA Broad Stem Cell Research Center/Nature Communications May 1, 2019 — A comparison of three types of radiotherapy for children’s brain tumors suggests a type of proton therapy called pencil beam scanning (PBS) offers the best hope of preserving cognitive functions. The study, presented at the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) 38 conference April 26-30 in Milan, Italy, shows this new form of radiotherapy delivers the lowest doses of radiation to the temporal lobes and hippocampus, areas of the brain important in functions like memory.The study was presented by Laura Toussaint, a Ph.D. student at the department of Medical Physics, Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark. She said, “Brain tumors are the second most common type of cancer in children. Survival rates have increased in recent decades and currently 75 percent of children diagnosed with a brain tumor will be alive five years later.”Alongside surgery and chemotherapy, radiotherapy plays an important role in treating brain tumors in children, but we need to protect children’s developing brains from any unnecessary radiation. The more we learn about how to effectively target brain tumors while minimizing the dose to other parts of the brain, the better we can preserve children’s cognitive abilities and quality of life after treatment.”Toussaint and her colleagues carried out detailed studies of 10 different children treated for brain tumors. Each child had been diagnosed with a type of cancer called craniopharyngioma, centrally located in their brain.For each child, they planned treatments with each of the three types of radiotherapy: volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), double scattering proton therapy (DSPT) or PBS proton therapy. All three are advanced radiotherapy treatments but DSPT and PBS are both types of proton therapy, which research suggests is better at targeting the tumor more precisely while sparing the surrounding tissues. However, they require expensive specific equipment that is not yet available in all hospitals. PBS is an especially precise form of radiotherapy that delivers treatment via a very narrow proton beam.Previous research has shown that radiation doses to particular areas of the brain, including the temporal lobes and hippocampus, have an impact on children’s cognitive outcomes, specifically in memory functions. Toussaint and her colleagues used these existing data to select 30 structures in the children’s brains to study.The researchers used computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans to precisely locate the structures in each of the children’s brains. Then they compared the three treatment plans for each child to see which type of treatment was better at sparing those 30 structures from radiation, categorizing the dose to each structure as high, medium or low.They found the doses to the temporal lobe were lower with the PBS treatment, compared to both the DSPT and VMAT treatments.They found, for example, that 41 percent of the left hippocampus volume was receiving low doses of radiation with the DSPT plans, while being spared with the PBS treatment.Using the existing data on the impacts of radiation to these regions of the brain, the researchers predict that the proton therapies, particularly the PBS treatment, would result in less impairment of the children’s memory function.Toussaint said, “We have looked at three types of radiotherapy, which all aim to successfully treat brain tumors while doing as little damage to children’s brains as possible. What we found was that pencil beam scanning proton therapy seems to be by far the best at avoiding parts of the brain that are important in children’s memory. The next step would be to confirm this finding with clinical research in patients.”The use of proton therapy has been expanding rapidly over the last decade and is becoming more and more available for cancer patients, especially for children. This also means that more research can take place.”There are around 25 proton therapy centers operating in Europe, and another 19 are under construction or planned.Prof. Umberto Ricardi, president of ESTRO and head of the Department of Oncology at the University of Turin, Italy, who was not involved in the research, said, “The aim of radiotherapy is to effectively treat cancer while causing as little damage as possible to the rest of the body. This aim could not be more important than when we are treating children’s brains. Proton therapy is already being used in some hospitals to treat brain tumors in children, but this study offers evidence of the benefits it might bring in terms of protecting cognitive functions and quality of life. We hope this work will lead to more research in this vital area.”For more information: www.estro.orgRelated ContentVIDEO: Advancements in Radiation Therapy for Brain CancerHippocampal Sparing Prevents Whole-Brain Radiotherapy Cognitive Side EffectsAdvances in Neuro-oncology FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.
