Trial Information

Keloid Radiation Registry

The Keloid-Radiation project is a clinical registry of patients with keloid who have been
treated with Radiation Therapy. This registry aims to monitor the at least 1,000 keloid
patients who received radiation therapy to their keloid and to collect epidemiological and
clinical data about these patients in order to assess the long term safety and effectiveness
of radiation therapy.

Radiation is currently being used in the treatment of keloid, thus enabling the
epidemiological characteristics of patients, analysis of treatment response, modeling the
influence of risk factors on patients┬┤ risk of developing long term complications such as a
cancer, as well as the detailed analysis of the dose delivered, equipment used and radiation
planning. This study intends to gather data about the long term efficacy and safety of
radiation therapy and rate of developing secondary cancers in patients who have received
radiation therapy for treatment of their keloid.
