Further study details as provided by IRCCS Azienda Ospedaliera Universitaria San Martino - IST Istituto Nazionale per la Ricerca sul Cancro, Genoa, Italy:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Early toxicity [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Assessment of early toxicity using modified RTOG scale

  • Late toxicity [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    Assessment of late toxicity using modified LENT scale

  • Cosmetic outcome [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    Assessment of cosmetic outcome according to semi-objective criteria


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Local Relapse Free Survival (LRFS) [ Time Frame: 10 years ]
    Local recurrence rate will be continuously monitored in order to stop the trial in case results will be consistently worse than expected according to literature data

  • Disease Free Survival (DFS) [ Time Frame: 10 years ]
    Disease Free Survival will be continuously monitored in order to stop the trial in case results will be consistently worse than expected according to literature data


Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: April 2009
