|Official Title:||Phase II Study to Evaluate the Efficacy of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy With Hypofractionated Radiosurgical Boosts in the Treatment of Clinically Localized Prostate Cancer|
- Local failure [ Time Frame: 2 years after radiotherapy. ]To estimate the rate of local failure as assessed by 2 year post-radiotherapy prostate biopsies. (Studies with the CyberKnife radiosurgery would be worthwhile for prostate cancer patients if the rate of local control was > 70%)
- Gastrointestinal and genitourinary toxicity [ Time Frame: During 5 years following the CyberKnife SRS treatment for prostate cancer ]To estimate the proportion of patients who develop late grade 3-5 gastrointestinal and genitourinary toxicity observed during the five years following CyberKnife SRS for prostate cancer.
- Biochemical disease-free survival (bDFS) [ Time Frame: 2 years after radiotherapy ]To assess secondary efficacy endpoints: Biochemical disease-free survival (bDFS) assessed using both Phoenix and ASTRO definitions, disease-free survival, disease-specific survival, time to failure, overall survival, duration of local control, and proportion of distant failure at 2 years.
- Quality of Life [ Time Frame: During the 5 years following radiotherapy ]To evaluate Quality of life (QOL).

Experimental: IMRT with SBRT Boost
Patients with clinically localized prostate cancer will be treated with three radiosurgical treatments (6.5 Gy per fraction to PTV) followed by IMRT (45 Gy in 25 fractions) over 6-7 weeks.
Radiation: Radiotherapy with IMRT and CyberKnife Boost
Inverse planning using the CyberKnife planning system will be employed. The treatment plan used for each treatment will be based on an analysis of the volumetric dose including dose-volume histogram (DVH) analyses of the PTV and critical normal structures. The homogeneous CT model shall be used.
The prescribed PTV dose of 19.5 Gy shall be given in 3 fractions using the CyberKnife. At least three fiducials should be identified for each treatment. If fewer than three fiducials can be tracked, then additional fiducials will be placed, and the patient replanned. Fiducial locations in the images will be extracted and compared to the fiducial locations in the CT scans to estimate target movements.
For IMRT, Daily doses of 180 cGy are to be delivered to the PTV 5 days a week to a total dose of 4500 cGy in 25 fractions.
This is a phase II study designed to prospectively evaluate the efficacy and morbidity of IMRT with CyberKnife radiosurgical boosts for clinically localized prostate cancer. Patients with clinically localized prostate cancer will be treated with three radiosurgical treatments (6.5 Gy per fraction to the PTV) followed by IMRT (45 Gy in 25 fractions). Treatment will be completed over a 6-7 week period.
The hypothesis is that for patients with clinically localized adenocarcinoma of the prostate, CyberKnife Radiosurgery delivered to the prostate is efficacious with acceptable toxicity in combination with IMRT.
Subjects will have toxicity evaluation and AUA score on the last day of treatment. At 1 month following treatment, subjects will be assessed for acute toxicity and will fill out AUA form, SF-12, EPIC-26, SHIM and Utilization of Sexual Rx/Devices. At 3, 6, 12, 18 and 24 month intervals (and every 6 months thereafter, through year 5, and annually through year 10, if investigators opt to continue past year 5), subjects will be seen and evaluated, including a history, physical exam, performance status, PSA, toxicity evaluation, and AUA score. In addition, at 6 months, 12 months and annually thereafter, the SF-12, EPIC-26, SHIM and Utilization of Sexual Medications/Devices will be administered. A prostate biopsy will be performed at time of biochemical or local clinical failure, and is encouraged at 2 years following treatment and at time of distant failure. A bone scan will be performed at the time of biochemical failure, or when the subject develops signs of symptoms suggesting metastatic disease.
Acute side effects (≤ 90 days of treatment start) will be assessed using the NCI Toxicity Criteria version 3.0.
