RATIONALE: Stereotactic radiation therapy may be able to send x-rays directly to the tumor and cause less damage to normal tissue.
PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of stereotactic radiation therapy in treating patients with liver metastases.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Metastatic Cancer||Procedure: quality-of-life assessment Radiation: stereotactic body radiation therapy||Phase 1|
- To identify the maximum tolerated dose of stereotactic radiation therapy in patients with hepatic metastases.
- To determine the toxicity and adverse events profile of this patient population.
- To examine patient response, treatment effect on blood chemistry, and hematology values and patient quality-of-life in this patient population.
OUTLINE: Patients are stratified according to stereotactic radiotherapy level (1 vs 2 vs 3) and the number of liver lesions present (1-2 vs 3-5 vs > 5).
Patients undergo percutaneous placement of metallic fiducial markers within the liver for stereotactic targeting and planning. Patients then undergo 1 fraction of stereotactic radiotherapy within 1 week of the marker placement.
Patients complete Brief Pain Inventory and Brief Fatigue Inventory questionnaires to assess quality of life at weeks 2, 4, 6, 8 and months 3, 6, and 9 after completion of study treatment.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed for at least 8 weeks.
