Eng-Yen Huang is presently working as the Director and Associate Professor at the Department of Radiation Oncology, Kaohsiung Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, and Chang Gung University in Taiwan. Dr. Huang received his Medical degree and Ph.D. degree from the China Medical University and Chang Gung University in 1992 and 2012, respectively. He has noted that radiation-induced complications are troublesome problems for many patients and physicians. He is making an effort on researching and reducing radiation-induced complications for improving therapeutic gain. In breast and cervical cancer, he has 3 and 12 articles published in the international journals, respectively. From 2006 to 2012, he published an article each year in the top Journal of Radiation Oncology (IJROBP). Dr. Huang is one of the leading research experts in the radiation enteropathy and radioresistance of cervical cancer in Taiwan. Dr. Huang has some novel findings in the research for cervical cancer such as (1) fraction size effect of high-dose-rate intracavitary brachytherapy on radiation proctitis in elderly patients, (2) different volume effects of small bowel in patients with and without prior abdominal surgery, (3) squamous cell carcinoma antigen (SCC-Ag) and carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) for predicting paraaortic lymph nodes (PALN) recurrence following definitive pelvis radiotherapy, (4) CEA as a significant factor of local recurrence after radiotherapy, and (5) galectin-1 dependent on H-Ras as a radioresistant marker of cervical cancer cells. An effort to improve the treatment outcome is planned by translational studies based on his background of being both radiobiologist and radiation oncologist.
