Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Stage II or Stage III Oropharyngeal Cancer
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of radiation therapy in treating patients who have stage II or stage III oropharyngeal cancer.
Head and Neck Cancer
Radiation: radiation therapy
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Conformal and Intensity Modulated Irradiation for Oropharyngeal Cancer|
- Acute salivary gland toxicity [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- Locoregional control [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Whole mouth saliva output relative to pre-radiotherapy measurements [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Acute mucositis and other acute and late toxicities [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
|Study Start Date:||February 2001|
|Primary Completion Date:||November 2005 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Assess target coverage and major salivary gland sparing in patients with stage II or III oropharyngeal cancer treated with intensity-modulated radiotherapy.
- Determine the nature and prevalence of acute and late side effects of this treatment in these patients.
- Determine the rate and pattern of locoregional tumor recurrence in these patients after this treatment.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive 3-D conformal radiotherapy and/or intensity-modulated radiotherapy daily 5 days a week for 6 weeks, in an effort to spare major salivary glands.
Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, and then annually thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 57-64 patients will be accrued for this study over 27 months.
