A Phase II Randomized Study of 2 Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) Regimens for Medically Inoperable Patients With Node Negative, Peripheral Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer


OBJECTIVES:

Primary

- To compare the incidence of toxicity with two established stereotactic body
radiotherapy (SBRT) regimens in patients with node-negative, peripheral stage I or II
non-small cell lung cancer.

Secondary

- To compare quality of life, patterns of failure, disease-free survival, and overall
survival of these patients after treatment with one of two established SBRT regimens.

- To correlate outcomes and toxicities with imaging and patient and tumor biomarkers.

OUTLINE: Patients are stratified according to Karnofsky performance status and treatment
center. Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.

- Arm I: Patients undergo 1 high-dose fraction of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT).

- Arm II: Patients undergo 3 high-dose fractions (approximately 1 week apart) of SBRT.

Quality of life is assessed periodically by the EORTC QLQ-C30 and -LC13 questionnaires

Blood and tissue samples may be collected periodically and examined for biomarkers via ELISA
and immunoblotting.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed for 5 years.

Inclusion Criteria


DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS:

- Histologically confirmed non-small cell lung cancer

- Node-negative disease

- Peripheral disease

- T1-T3, N0 disease measuring ≤ 5 cm

- No T2-T3 tumors > 5 cm or T3 tumor based on chest wall involvement
