|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00007007|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : March 8, 2004
Last Update Posted : March 27, 2015
RATIONALE: Assessment of patients undergoing radiation therapy may help to determine the effects of the treatment and may help improve cancer treatment.
PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying the memory skills in patients receiving radiation therapy for brain metastases.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Cognitive/Functional Effects Metastatic Cancer Radiation Toxicity||Procedure: management of therapy complications Procedure: quality-of-life assessment||Not Applicable|
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the feasibility of performing a test battery consisting of five neurocognitive measures and a quality of life instrument following radiotherapy in patients with brain metastases.
OUTLINE: Patients undergo radiotherapy 5 days a week for 3 weeks. Quality of life and neurocognitive function is assessed before study, at completion of radiotherapy, and at 1 month after completion of radiotherapy. Patients are followed at 1 month.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 50 patients will be accrued for this study over 5 months.
