• Hypoxic cell sensitizers, particle therapy, hyperthermia, and combinations of chemotherapy and radiotherapy have potential to increase the therapeutic ratio in future clinical radiotherapy treatment regimens. The biologic bases of these investigations are beginning to appear as avenues of clinical investigation.
