Data Collection to Assess Acute and Late Normal Tissue Sequelae in Proton Therapy for Adults
As part of your standard of care, you will be examined by your doctor weekly during your
routine proton therapy and then 1-3 more times up to 90 days from the start of treatment and
then at least once a year after that.
Also as part of your standard of care, certain standard laboratory blood and/or urine test
and/or radiologic tests will be done to check if the tumor is under control and to look for
any side effect of the treatment.
If you agree to take part in this study, all of the information collected during your visits
as well as detailed information on the proton treatment plan will be gathered and stored in
a computer for future analysis.
This is an investigational study. Researchers expect to have about 5,000 patients on the
study over a 5-year period. All the patients will be enrolled at M. D. Anderson.
