Trial Information

Phase II Study of Hypofractionated Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) With Incorporated Boost in Early Stage Breast Cancer


OBJECTIVES:

Primary

- Determine the toxicity associated with adjuvant hypofractionated intensity-modulated
radiotherapy using an incorporated boost in patients with early-stage breast cancer.

Secondary

- Determine the long-term cosmetic result and quality of life of patients treated with
this regimen.

- Determine the long-term local control in patients treated with this regimen.

OUTLINE: Patients undergo adjuvant hypofractionated intensity-modulated radiotherapy with
incorporated boost once daily 5 days a week for 4 weeks.

Quality of life is assessed within 1 month of starting radiotherapy, at 6 weeks after
completion of radiotherapy, and then every 6 months for 5 years.

Patients are followed at 6 weeks and then every six months for 5 years.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 37-74 patients will be accrued for this study.
