Brief Summary:
This clinical trial studies giving radiation therapy to the liver in patients with uveal (eye) melanoma who have a specific chromosome loss (monosomy 3) or are DecisionDx Class 2 and therefore more likely to have their disease spread from the eye to the liver. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Early radiation to the liver may reduce the development of tumors in the liver and the overall risk of disease recurrence.

Iris Melanoma Medium/Large Size Posterior Uveal Melanoma Stage IIA Uveal Melanoma Stage IIB Uveal Melanoma Stage IIIA Uveal Melanoma Stage IIIB Uveal Melanoma Stage IIIC Uveal Melanoma Radiation: External Beam Radiation Therapy Other: Laboratory Biomarker Analysis Not Applicable

Detailed Description:


I. Progression free survival in patients treated with prophylactic hepatic irradiation.


I. Acute and late term toxicity and overall survival.


Patients undergo external beam radiation therapy daily over 20 minutes on Monday-Friday for 10 fractions over approximately 2 weeks.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 6 months for 5 years.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression-free Survival [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
  2. Reduction in Liver Metastasis [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Frequency and Severity of Acute Toxicity Per National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) Version 4 [ Time Frame: Within 3 months of study treatment ]
  2. Frequency and Severity of Late Toxicity Per NCI CTCAE Version 4 [ Time Frame: More than 3 months after study treatment ]
  3. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
  4. Distant Failure Rates [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Cumulative incidence approach (Kaplan-Meier [K-M] plots and Cox proportional hazard modeling) will be used to estimate distant failure rates.

  5. Disease-specific Survival [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Cumulative incidence approach (K-M plots and Cox proportional hazard modeling) will be used to estimate disease-specific survival.
