Radiofrequency Ablation in Treating Patients With Stage I Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
RATIONALE: Radiofrequency ablation uses high-frequency electric current to kill tumor cells. Computed tomography (CT)-guided radiofrequency ablation may be an effective treatment for non-small cell lung cancer.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well radiofrequency ablation works in treating patients with stage I non-small cell lung cancer.
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||A Pilot Study of Radiofrequency Ablation in High-Risk Patients With Stage IA Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer|
- Overall survival at 2 years [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Overall time to local failure [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Overall time to recurrence [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Proportion of technical success [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Adverse events [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
|Study Start Date:||September 2006|
|Primary Completion Date:||July 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Determine the overall 2-year survival rate after radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of lung nodules in high-risk patients with stage IA non-small cell lung cancer.
- Determine freedom from regional or distant recurrence in patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine freedom from local recurrence in the ablated lobe at 2 years in these patients.
- Determine the number of procedures deemed technical successes in patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine procedure-specific morbidity and mortality.
- Determine the utility of immediate (within 96 hours) post-RFA positron emission tomography (PET) in predicting overall survival and local control in these patients.
- Determine the effect of RFA on short-term (3 months post-RFA) and long-term (24 months post-RFA) pulmonary function in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter, pilot study.
A radiofrequency electrode is placed by CT guidance into the target tumor. Patients undergo radiofrequency ablation (RFA) directly to the tumor for up to 12 minutes to obtain an intratumoral temperature > 60°C. Patients may receive 3 RFA treatments (a total of 36 minutes) to obtain the target temperature. Patients undergo fludeoxyglucose F18 positron emission tomography within 24-96 hours after the final treatment.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed every 3 months for 1 year and then every 6 months for 1 year.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 55 patients will be accrued for this study within 20 months.
