Breast Cancer Clinical Trial
A Phase I Dose Escalation Study of Single Fraction Ablative Pre-operative Partial Breast (S-PBI) for Early Stage Breast Cancer
The purpose of this phase I trial is to evaluate dose-limiting toxicity while dose escalating single-fraction preoperative S-PBI to a presumed radioablative dose over 3 cohorts, starting with 30Gy in 1 fraction and advancing to 34Gy and 38Gy in 1 fraction.
Preoperative stereotactic breast radiation may be beneficial as it offers the ability to target smaller treatment volumes than what has been achievable with adjuvant PBI (Nichols IJROBP 2010), track radiobiological response to radiation at time of surgical pathology, and allow the removal of all irradiated tissue to potentially minimize late effects.The purpose of this phase I trial is to evaluate dose-limiting toxicity while dose escalating single-fraction preoperative S-PBI to a presumed radioablative dose over 3 cohorts, starting with 30Gy in 1 fraction and advancing to 34Gy and 38Gy in 1 fraction. This would be accomplished on the CyberKnife or GammaPod. The GammaPod is a novel device dedicated to S-PBI utilizing a Cobalt-60 source (Yu Med Phys 2013), which offers a highly reproducible prone setup with a mean of 1.8mm of mismatch reported in 15 patients at the University of Maryland on consecutive scans (Yu JCO 2011). Implications of this research are far reaching, including determination of the maximally tolerated dose for preoperative S-PBI, pathologic complete response rates of early stage breast cancer to a predicted radioablative dose, radiographic markers of treatment response (radiomics), and translational research assessing mechanisms of immune and radiation response.
Invasive epithelial (ductal, medullary, lobular, papillary, mucinous (colloid), or tubular) histologies of the breast 3 cm or less(T1-T2cN0) in women who have not undergone surgery or neoadjuvant endocrine or chemotherapy for current breast cancer diagnosis
Tumor must not involve the overlying skin based on imaging evaluation and/or clinical exam
Age >/= 18 years old and female
Greatest Tumor dimension is 3cm or less based on US. MRI measurements can be included only if performed BEFORE the biopsy
Tumor must be unifocal
The tumor must be visible on CT scan and/or preferably marked with clip(s) in tumor
Patients must undergo an MRI for work up to aid in tumor delineation and to rule out additional foci of disease. If additional foci of disease are present, they need to have a negative biopsy to proceed with treatment.If patient cannot have MRI, contrast enhanced digital mammography (CEDM) is allowed in place of MRI.
Clinically and radiographically node negative on ultrasound of the axilla or MRI
Estrogen receptor positive or Progesterone receptor positive and Her2neu negative
Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent.
Women of child-bearing potential must agree to use adequate contraception (hormonal or barrier method of birth control) prior to the start of study and for the duration of radiation therapy. Should a woman become pregnant or suspect she is pregnant while participating in this study, she should inform her treating physician immediately
A female of child-bearing potential is any woman (regardless of sexual orientation, having undergone a tubal ligation, or remaining celibate by choice) who meets the following criteria:
Has not undergone a hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy; or
Has not been naturally postmenopausal for at least 12 consecutive months (i.e., has had menses at any time in the preceding 12 consecutive months
Prior RT to the involved breast
Tumor size >3cm
Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmia, or psychiatric illness/social situations that, in the opinion of the investigator, would limit compliance with study requirements
Patients who are pregnant or lactating due to the potential exposure to the fetus to radiation therapy and unknown effects of radiation therapy to lactating females
Patients unable to have an MRI or contrast enhanced digital mammography (CEDM)
Prior ipsilateral breast cancer
Tumor less than 5mm from the skin surface on clinical exam and/or radiographic imaging
Patients with active Lupus or scleroderma
