Radiation Therapy After Surgery in Treating Women With Phyllodes Tumor of the Breast

2014-07-23 21:57:02 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Radiation therapy following surgery may be effective in treating patients with phyllodes tumor of the breast.

PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well radiation therapy works after surgery in treating women with phyllodes tumor of the breast.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- Determine the local recurrence rate in women with phyllodes tumors of the breast previously treated with local excision with negative margins and are now treated with adjuvant radiotherapy.

- Determine the survival rate in patients treated with this regimen.

OUTLINE: Within 12 weeks after prior local excision or breast reexcision, patients undergo adjuvant radiotherapy 5 days a week for a total of 28 treatments.

Patients are followed every 6 months for 10 years.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 50 patients will be accrued for this study within approximately 6-7 years.
