Radiation therapy is a one way of cancer treatment. It uses high doses of radiation to kill cancer cells and stop spreading the destruction of new healthy cells. Mostly this therapy is useful to all cancer patients. The radiation may be external, from special machines, or internal, from radioactive substances that a doctor places inside your body which creates a radioactive pathway. Radiation therapy can damage normal cells as well as cancer cells. Treatment must be carefully planned to minimize side effects of the radiation. Common side effects include skin color changes and fatigue. Other side effects depend on the part of your body being treated.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
