A research study using a method of treating lung cancer with focused radiation called Stereotactic Ablative Radiotherapy (SABR). The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of individualizing the dose of radiation used to treat lung tumors with SABR based on tumor-specific factors.

Condition Intervention
Lung Cancer Diagnostic Test: PET Scan Diagnostic Test: CT Scan Radiation: SABR

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Further study details as provided by Stanford University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate local tumor control with individually optimized lung tumor Stereotactic Ablative Radiotherapy (SABR). Tumor control will be assessed by CT, PET-CT, and if appropriate, biopsy. [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in toxicity from baseline of individually optimized lung tumor SABR [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  • Feasibility of anatomically optimized audio-visual biofeedback (AVB)-coached breath-hold technique assisted by fast delivery using gated RapidArc with flattening free filter mode (FFF) in a subset of patients [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  • Examine new biomarkers in lung tumor SABR patients. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  • Determine progression free survival in patients treated with individually optimized lung tumor SABR. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  • Determine metastasis free survival in patients treated with individually optimized lung tumor SABR. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  • Determine overall survival in patients treated with individually optimized lung tumor SABR. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

Detailed Description:
Stereotactic ablative radiotherapy has emerged as an important and effective new treatment modality for lung tumors, but optimal dose regimens have not been fully established. Significant toxicity can be observed with the most commonly used dose regimens, implying that developing treatment regimens that optimize treatment based on tumor-specific factors could be of clinical benefit. This study will test a risk-adapted approach to SABR delivery aimed at maximizing tumor control while minimizing toxicity.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Limited primary or metastatic lung tumors with no evidence of uncontrolled extrathoracic metastases
  • Up to 4 lesions may be included, with none larger than 5 cm if there are more than one, or up to 7 cm if there is a single tumor
  • Both peripheral and central tumors are accepted for this trial.
  • Age > 18 years old
  • Both men and women and members of all races and ethnic groups are eligible for this trial.
  • Note: Patients may be enrolled more than once (e.g. for a new tumor)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Evidence of uncontrolled extrathoracic metastases
  • Contraindication to receiving radiotherapy.
  • Contraindication to receiving radiotherapy
  • Age < 18 years old. Children are excluded because lung malignancies rarely occur in this age group. Furthermore, treatment requires a great deal of patient cooperation including the ability to lie still for several hours in an isolated room.
  • Pregnant and breastfeeding women are excluded; as well as women of child-bearing potential who are unwilling or unable to use an acceptable method of birth control (hormonal or barrier method of birth control; abstinence) to avoid pregnancy for the duration of the study. Male subjects must also agree to use effective contraception for the same period as above. Should a woman become pregnant or suspect she is pregnant while participating in this study, she should inform her treating physician immediately.
