RATIONALE: Internal radiation uses radioactive material placed directly into or near a tumor to kill tumor cells. Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying the side effects of internal radiation therapy when given with or without external-beam radiation therapy and to see how well it works in treating patients with localize...
This is a dose finding study of a novel radiopharmaceutical agent, 153Sm-DOTMP. It will be studied alone and then in combination with external beam radiotherapy. The study design includes six cohorts, Levels 1-6. The first three cohorts of participants will receive 153Sm-DOTMP alone, and if this is determined to be safe, subsequent cohorts will receive the radiopharmaceutical followed by external beam radiotherapy.
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the short- and long term toxicity of radiotherapy to patients with recurrent high-grade glioma who have previously received radiotherapy and to determine the best dose and treatment regimen. Positron emission tomography (PET) using an amino acid tracer, 18-fluoro-ethyltyrosine (18F-FET), is used for target delineation.The study examines, in four sequential treatment groups, the effect of dose, hypofractionation and treatment volume on tox...
The purpose of this study is to test the safety of a new type of IG-IMRT called "ultra-hypofractionated IG-IMRT" where a higher dose of radiation is given to the tumor during each treatment day. Since higher doses of radiation are used each day, the total number of treatment days needed to complete this type of radiation is only five instead of the 45-48 treatments currently used. Treatment takes place every other day and is complete after 2 weeks. If the patient decides to g...
The goal is to achieve the maximal radiotherapy tumor dose while sparing the health tissue and critical structures. On-board cone-beam CT (CBCT) scans are routinely acquired prior to dose delivery and matched with simulation CT at the planned treatment positions. Thus, setup or motion errors can be detected and corrected. However, CBCT is not available for situations with gantry collisions such as WBI and TSEB. More importantly, CBCT cannot reveal any irregular respiration or b...
Patients with primary head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) planned for treatment with radiotherapy with or without chemotherapy in curative setting will be treated with an adaptive radiotherapy scheme. An FDG-PET/CT and MRI scan for re-delineation and re-planning will be made at the end of the second and fourth of week of radiotherapy. The non-responding part of the tumor on FDG-PET will receive a mild dose-escalation. Depending on the metabolic response, the entire tu...
A phase I single-arm open label dose escalation study to evaluate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and safety of Civasheet® with radical prostatectomy (RP) and adjuvant external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) in a 3+3 dose escalation design among participants with high risk prostate cancer (PCa).
This is an open-label, multicenter, phase I study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of durvalumab ± tremelimumab in combination with chemoradiation in patients with advanced solid tumors.
High dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy is a form of radiation treatment using temporary radioactive seeds. This is done by placing very tiny catheters or tubes into the prostate and then inserting temporary radioactive seeds, called Iridium 192, through these catheters. HDR brachytherapy gives precise radiation to the prostate with less radiation given to the normal tissues near the prostate. For patients who have been treated with external beam radiation to the prostate before, HD...
RATIONALE: Using MRI to guide placement of markers in the prostate may help in planning radiation therapy for patients with prostate cancer. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying the side effects of MRI-guided placement of imaging markers and to see how well they work in patients with prostate cancer undergoing external-beam radiation therapy.
This pilot study initiates a research program testing the early technical and clinical performance of a novel procedure for MRI-guided high-dose-rate (HDR) prostate brachytherapy. Testing will proceed in two cohorts of patients. In Arm 1, patients with locally recurrent prostate cancer after radiotherapy will receive tumor-targeted salvage HDR brachytherapy. Arm 1 of the study will be coordinated and closely integrated with a separate concurrent study of MRI-guided prostate...
The specific objective of this study is to compare the relative efficacy of the combination of a temporary iridium implant plus external beam irradiation versus standard external beam irradiation alone in patients with Stage B2 and C prostatic carcinoma. Benefit will be assessed in terms of local recurrence, survival, and toxicity.
RATIONALE: Androgens can cause the growth of prostate cancer cells. Drugs, such as triptorelin and flutamide, may stop the adrenal glands from making androgens. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Giving triptorelin and flutamide together with radiation therapy may be an effective treatment for prostate cancer. It is not yet known whether giving triptorelin and flutamide together with external-beam radiation therapy is more effective than external-bea...
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays and other types of radiation to kill tumor cells. Specialized radiation therapy, such as intensity-modulated radiation therapy, that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. PURPOSE: This clinical trial studies intensity-modulated external beam radiation therapy in treating patients with prostate cancer.
The evaluation of the radiological changes in localised or locally advanced prostate cancer after androgen deprivation therapy and external beam radiotherapy using multi-parametric MRI (multi parametric magnetic resonance imaging) and VERDICT (Vascular, Extracellular and Restricted Diffusion for Cytometry in Tumours) sequences.
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Indinavir and ritonavir may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether external-beam radiation therapy is more effective with or without indinavir and ritonavir in treating patients with brain metastases. PURPOSE: This randomized phase II trial is studying external-beam radiation therapy alone to see how well it works compared to ext...
The present study evaluates the clinical outcomes following definitive ultra-high dose per fraction external beam radiation therapy delivered in patients with organ-confined adenocarcinoma of the prostate. Patients enrolled in the study will undergo image-guided, volumetric intensity-modulated arc radiotherapy (IGRT-VMAT) with state-of-the-art treatment-planning and quality assurance procedures with emphasis on normal tissue sparing and delivery accuracy via the use of d...
RATIONALE: Sorafenib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin and paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Giving sorafenib together with high-dose chemotherapy and external-beam radiation ...
This study will compare pain (primary end-point) and local metastatic tumor control (secondary end-point) after dose-intensified image-guided fractionated stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for painful mass-type spinal metastases versus conventional radiation therapy.
This phase II trial studies how well radical-dose image guided radiation therapy works in treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer that has spread to other places in the body who are undergoing immunotherapy. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Giving radical-dose image guided radiation therapy to patients with non-small cell lung cancer may help to improve response to immunotherapy anti-cancer treatment.
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of WEE1 inhibitor AZD1775 when given together with external beam radiation therapy and cisplatin in treating patients with cervical, vaginal, or uterine cancer. WEE1 inhibitor AZD1775 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

The purpose of the research study is to learn whether external beam radiation can be used as a safe and effective treatment for patients with bulky (≥ 5cm) sites of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma prior to treatment with 90Y-ibritumomab tiuxetan (Zevalin).
A dose-response relationship for radiation in the management of prostate cancer is well established. Local recurrence of prostate cancer after external beam radiotherapy occurs in at least 40% of patients treated because of inability to deliver sufficient dose through external beam techniques. These patients respond well to re-irradiation using brachytherapy with about 50% of selected patients remaining free of recurrence 5 years after salvage. Advanced imaging using multiparam...
