Trial record 2 of 28 for:    lymphoma proton

Proton Therapy for Hodgkin Lymphoma (HL01)

This study is ongoing, but not recruiting participants.

The purpose of this study is to reduce the risk of radiation related side effects and complications by treating with radiation (protons or photons) that exposes less of normal organs to low dose radiation.

Condition Intervention
Hodgkin Lymphoma
Radiation: Proton Radiation Plan
Radiation: Conventional Photon Radiation Plan
Radiation: Intensity Modulated Radiation Plan

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: No masking
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Improving the Therapeutic Ratio by Using Proton Beam Radiation Therapy for Patients With Stage IA-IIIBX (Bulky/Non-bulky) Hodgkin Lymphoma Involving the Mediastinum Following Standard Chemotherapy

Further study details as provided by University of Florida:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Comparison of Normal Tissue Exposed to Greater Than or Equal to 4 Gy/CGE With Use of Proton Therapy Compared to Both Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) and Conventional Therapy. [ Time Frame: Immediately proceeding completion of each of the three treatment plans ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess Improvement and Other Dosimetric Endpoints [ Time Frame: Prior to starting radiation therapy ]
  • Assess Disease Control and Survival Outcomes [ Time Frame: During radiation therapy; then after radiation, every 3 months for the first year, then every 6 months for the next 4 years, then annually ]

Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: August 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2020
Primary Completion Date: May 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Proton Radiation Plan Radiation: Proton Radiation Plan
Between 21-39.6 Gy/CGE to the PTV
Active Comparator: Conventional Photon Radiation Plan Radiation: Conventional Photon Radiation Plan
Between 21-39.6 Gy/CGE to the PTV
Active Comparator: Intensity Modulated Radiation Plan Radiation: Intensity Modulated Radiation Plan
Between 21-39.6 Gy/CGE to the PTV

Detailed Description:

3 treatment plans will be created to deliver between a total of 21-39.6 Gray (Gy)/Centigray Equivalents (CGE) to the planning target volume (PTV).

  1. Proton Plan
  2. Conventional Plan
  3. Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) Plan

The patient will then receive the radiation modality with the lowest percentage of the body receiving 4 Gy (V4Gy/CGE)
