Further study details as provided by Lawson Health Research Institute:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent of patients developing modified Radiation Therapy Oncology Group(RTOG) Visual Assessment Score Grade II or greater radiation dermatitis induced by adjuvant radiation therapy in women with breast cancer [ Time Frame: 3 1/2 - 5 weeks of radiation treatment. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    modified RTOG Visual Assessment Score


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to develop modified Radiation Therapy Oncology Group Visual Assessment Score Grade I, II, and/or Grade III radiation dermatitis [ Time Frame: 3 1/2 - 5 weeks of radiation treatment. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time will be measured in days

  • Absolute cost of barrier film and standard treatment care [ Time Frame: 3 1/2 - 5 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    cost will be measured in Canadian dollars. The cost of standard care will be assessed by direct patient questioning on what was purchased. The cost of the Cavilon is standard for all patients (currently $28)


Estimated Enrollment: 47
Study Start Date: January 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
3M Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film
Two of four regions of the breast will be randomly chosen to receive 3M Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film treatment twice per week.
Device: 3M Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film
Half the breast will receive 3M Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film and one half will receive standard skin care
Other Name: Cavilon no-sting
