3-Dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy In Treating Women With Stage I or Stage II Breast Cancer Previously Treated With Lumpectomy and Axillary Node Dissection
RATIONALE: 3-dimensional conformal radiation therapy delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor and may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue.
PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of 3-dimensional conformal radiation therapy in treating women who have undergone lumpectomy and axillary node dissection for stage I or stage II breast cancer.
|Study Design:||Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase I/II Trial to Evaluate Three Dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy (3D-CRT) Confined to the Region of the Lumpectomy Cavity for Stage I and II Breast Carcinoma|
|Study Start Date:||August 2003|
|Primary Completion Date:||June 2005 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Determine the technical feasibility and reproducibility of three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy confined to the region of the lumpectomy cavity in women with stage I or II breast cancer.
- Determine the cosmetic results in patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the complication rates in patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the local control rate in patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients undergo three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy twice daily for 5 days beginning within 8 weeks after surgery.
Patients are followed at 6 weeks, every 3 months for 1 year, every 4 months for 1 year, every 6 months for 3 years, and then annually thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 19-46 patients will be accrued for this study within 6.3 to 15.3 months.
