Author information: (1)Dermatology and Pathology, Rutgers University New Jersey Medical School, Newark, NJ, USA. (2)Rutgers University School of Public Affairs and Administration, Newark, NJ, USA. Radiation therapy has been a commonly employed modality for a variety of ailments, including cancer. Patients undergoing radiation often experience acute and/or chronic skin changes that can be detrimental to their quality of life. Many topical agents and specialized wound dressings are being used for the prevention and management of radiation-induced skin changes. However, no single therapeutic option has been found to be consistently effective. © 2016 The International Society of Dermatology. DOI: 10.1111/ijd.13371 PMID: 27496623 [Indexed for MEDLINE]
