Lung cancer is one of the most common cancer and the leading causes of cancer death in worldwide. Approximately 80% of NSCLC were inoperable. The prognosis of patients with LA-NSCLC remains disappointing. Investigators hypothesized that use of simultaneous integrated boost intensity modulated radiotherapy (SIB-IMRT) technology can safety increasing the radiation dose and benefit for inoperable NSCLC patients.
The goal of this clinical research study is to find the highest tolerable dose of radiation that can be given to directly to the pleura (the outer lining of the lungs) using intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) in patients with malignant mesothelioma (MM) who have had a pleurectomy.
This study is to assess the efficacy of IMRT combined with erlotinib compared with whole-brain radiotherapy for EGFR wild type non-small cell lung cancer with 4-10 brain metastases.
This is a perspective, multicenter,randomized controlled trial to compare the efficacy and safety of radiotherapy Based on PET/CT and IMRT combined with concurrent chemotherapy in patients with locally advanced non small cell lung cancer . Analyses of overall survival (OS) will be done as defined in the protocol.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of combining chemotherapy at different doses with a specific type of radiation therapy delivered to the entire lining of the lung to find out what effects, if any, it has on people. This radiation technique is called pleural intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). IMRT specifically targets the lining of the lung (pleura) where the cancer is and reduces the risk of damaging the lung itself. When given after chemotherapy, ...
The hypothesis of this study is that the use of IMRT instead of conventional 4-field irradiation in patients with locally-advanced esophagus cancer receiving adjuvant RT is a feasible treatment alternative. IMRT may reduce the rate of pulmonary, cardiac, and bowel toxicity while allowing an intensified dose of radiation therapy to be delivered to the cancer.
Hypothesis 1- Using IMRT, the RT dose can be safely escalated from 58 Gy to 74 Gy given as 6 fractions/week with concurrent chemotherapy. Hypothesis 2- Esophageal motion can be used to customize planning organ at risk volumes. Hypothesis 3- Biological predictors of acute esophagitis can be used to identify patients at high risk of developing esophageal toxicity from radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and adverse events of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) concurrent with chemotherapy for anal squamous carcinoma. All enrolled anal squamous carcinoma patients are intented to receive IMRT concurrent with Capecitabine + mitomycin ± cetuximab targeted therapy.
The purpose of this study is show that intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), as compared with conventional radiotherapy, improves the precision of tumor targeting and reduces the acute and late effects of radiation toxicity when used to treat anal cancer. Results from this work will provide a basis for incorporating the use of IMRT to treat anal cancer in future treatment protocols.
This study is evaluating the feasibility of using helical tomotherapy to deliver IMRT in post-hysterectomy endometrial cancer patients receiving adjuvant radiotherapy.
The goal of this clinical research study is to use CT scans to find any changes in position of the vagina and pelvic lymph node areas during the course of intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) radiation therapy. Treatment can then be adjusted in order to "spare" as much normal tissue as possible during radiation therapy. Another goal is to study the side effects of IMRT radiation therapy.
To report the outcome of hypo-fractionated radiotherapy after radical prostatectomy (RP) for prostate cancer (PCa) using IMRT-SIB. 124 patients with PCa at high risk of relapse after RP or diagnosis of biochemical relapse were included. Patients received 62.5 Gy to the prostate bed (PB) and 45 Gy to pelvis nodes in 25 fractions. Androgen suppressive therapy was prescribed based on NCCN risk categories. Median follow-up was 30 months.
For patients with this type of cancer, the standard of care is treatment with chemotherapy. Radiation therapy is typically not used. This is because radiation to the entire lining of the lung has many side effects that are often severe including damage to the lung (pneumonitis). There is a new radiation technique using Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) that has been shown to reduce many of the side effects of standard radiation therapy. This type of radiation therapy...
Compared to IMRT, PBRT is thought to give less radiation exposure to the surrounding healthy tissues. It is possible that side effect rates with PBRT will be lower or the same compared to IMRT, but this has not been well studied to date. Although both of these radiation therapies have been used in the past to treat head and neck cancer, this research study will compare the effects of these two different radiation treatment modalities with each other to see whether PBRT is bette...
Research has shown that treatment with conventional radiation techniques and chemotherapy following mastectomy or breast conserving surgery has resulted in better rates of locoregional control and overall survival in stage IIB-III breast cancer. The current feasibility trial using the most recent advance in radiation therapy, namely helical tomotherapy intensity modulated radiation therapy (HT-IMRT), hopes to improve on the results of conventional radiation by decreasing the am...
A study to evaluate the efficacy of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) as compared to Standard Conventional Radiotherapy Alone in the treatment of carcinoma cervix. Concomitant Weekly Cisplatin chemotherapy will be given as a routine, which is a standard of care today for early stage cervical cancers including stage IIB. The benefits of using IMRT in reducing radiation-induced toxicity are well known. Since this treatment modality has not yet been validated and studie...
A theoretical planning study to compare the normal tissue irradiation when using intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) as opposed to standard radiotherapy for the definitive treatment of cervical cancer.
Radiotherapy has been shown to reduce breast-cancer specific mortality in patients at high risk for distant dissemination. It has also been shown to increase rates of non-breast cancer deaths and morbidity due to cardiovascular and pulmonary toxicity. Although treatment planning has improved significantly through the years, recent reports still demonstrate treatment-related morbidity even with 3-dimensional planned techniques. Thus, while 3D planning represents the state of th...
Patients with head and neck cancer and are schedule to receive standard radiation therapy known as IMRT to treat cancer
The study regimen consists of cisplatin and radiation for all patients, the standard treatment for head and neck cancer. All patients will also receive pembrolizumab (the study drug), and will be randomized to two treatment schedules: either pembrolizumab with cisplatin-radiation, or pembrolizumab after completing cisplatin-radiation. The goal of this research study is to learn which therapy order (adding pembrolizumab during vs. after cisplatin and radiation) may be more effe...
This trial uses a type of radiotherapy called intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), which is able to deliver the radiation to the prostate while delivering less dose to the surrounding normal organs compared with standard 3D conformal radiotherapy presently used at the BCCA. This trial will use RapidArc IMRT, which is a new way of delivering IMRT, where the radiation dose is delivered in a single rotation of the radiotherapy machine around the patient. This new method of del...
Historically, patients with stage III and IV head and neck cancer have been treated with surgery and/or radiation therapy. Based on the results of recent clinical trials, in patients not able to undergo surgery, chemotherapy with radiation therapy has been adopted as the current standard of care. The chemo-radiation approach, however, entails a significant increase in treatment-related toxicity, limiting the extent to which this treatment can be offered to patients. In this tr...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn how safe and effective proton-beam therapy (PBT) may be in comparison to intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) in combination with chemotherapy in patients with esophageal cancer. PBT and IMRT are both forms of radiation therapy that are designed to treat a specific area of the body while affecting as little of the surrounding normal tissue as possible. PBT is a newer technology that is designed to further reduce the...
The purpose of this Phase 2 study is to find out what effect, good and/or bad, external beam radiation therapy, has on the patient and their thyroid cancer where surgery is not an option or where despite surgery, the disease is still present.
The prognosis for patients with advanced epithelial ovarian cancer remains poor despite aggressive surgical resection and platinum-based chemotherapy. More than 60% of patients will develop recurrent disease, principally intraperitoneal, and die within 5 years. The use of whole abdominal irradiation (WAI) as consolidation therapy would appear to be a logical strategy, but despite whole abdominal irradiation has clinically proven efficacy the use of radiotherapy in ovarian cance...
