Conclusion BCI highly determines the development of future cognitive impairment, although the impairment could be sustained (34%), reversible (27%), recurred (31%), or reversed and recurred alternatively (9%).

However, dose-escalated CRT initiated significantly more tumor regression (Mandard 1-2), suggesting potential to enable organ preservation in selected patients. This study compared patient reported outcomes (PROs) and disease-free survival (DFS) between patients who received dose-escalated CRT (boost group) or standard CRT (control group) in the first 2 years following randomization. Materials and Methods Patients with LARC (n=128), participating in the RECTAL-BOOST trial, filled out EORTC QLQ-C30 and CR29 questionnaires on general and colorectal cancer specific quality of life (QoL) and symptoms at baseline, and at 3, 6, 12, 18 and 24 months following start of treatment. Between-group differences in functional QoL domains were estimated using a linear mixed effect model and expressed using the effect size (ES). Symptom scores were categorized as no (0), mild (1-49), moderate (50-99) or severe (100) and compared using the Mann-
