Hypofractionated Adaptive Image-Guided Radiation Therapy for Localized Adenocarcinoma of the Prostate
Ages Eligible for Study: 18 Years and older Genders Eligible for Study: Male Accepts Healthy Volunteers: No
This will be a Phase II study evaluating the effectiveness and toxicity of a regimen of 3.6 Gy per day to a total dose of 57.6 Gy (16 fractions). This choice of daily dose is based on the prior published experience showing safety and efficacy of hypofractionated regimens of 2.5 Gy, 2.7 Gy, and 3.0 Gy daily fractions. The total dose is calculated to be iso-effective for late effects to a conventionally fractionated total dose of 81 Gy, which has been shown to be effective and safe in a large prospective Phase II study. If the alpha/beta ratio for prostate is between 1.5-3.0, then this regimen should be at least as effective or more effective for tumor control than 81 Gy given in conventional fractions.
