For the first time the rare radiobiological phenomenon of spontaneous regression of an unirradiated tumor in a course of irradiation of other, distant lesion in a patient affected by thyroid carcinoma has been observed. Identifying tumors that are capable of inducing this phenomenon, and doses for which its intensity would be maximum, this effect could be exploited as a powerful weapon for radio-sensitize the regional or distant tumor and increase the control of it. © 2012 Tubin S, et al.
