|NCT02390518 : Stereotactic Radiosurgery Dose Escalation for Brain Metastases|
|Ages||Min: 18 Years Max: N/A|
- Clinically confirmed brain metastases by CT or MRI criteria. If there is evidence of
extra-cranial metastatic disease, it is preferable that the lesions be pathologically
confirmed (see section 4.2.5 for excluded histologies) and reviewed by a University of
Utah or Huntsman Cancer Hospital pathologist if the initial review was done at an
- Prior brain surgery is allowed, although a lesion situated in the operative bed would
not be selected to receive an experimental dose of SRS treatment. SRS should be
delivered 4-6 weeks post-surgery if the patient had a craniotomy for resection of a
lesion. Enrollment of a patient with the goal of performing SRS outside of the 4-6
post-craniotomy window is at the PI's discretion.
- Patients must have 1-5 brain metastases total.
- Equivalent tumor diameter = 40 mm by CT or MRI measurement at the time of
consultation/screening (for each metastatic lesion present in the brain).
- All metastatic lesions must be separated by a minimum of 3 cm as measured from the
peripheral edges of the lesions which are in closest proximity to one another. If
multiple lesions are present and are not all = 3 cm away from each other, the patient
will be deemed ineligible.
- Prior systemic therapy is allowed, although appropriate washout is required for
patients who have been on BRAF inhibitors (at least 7 days).
- For subjects currently on active systemic cancer therapy, the treating medical
oncologist should be consulted to ensure proper washout (if appropriate) periods prior
- Patients must be at least 18 years of age.
- Karnofsky Performance Status (KPS) = 60.
- Able to provide informed consent and have signed an approved consent form that
conforms to federal and institutional guidelines.
- Women of child-bearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test within 10 days of
study enrollment and must agree to use an acceptable method of birth control while
receiving radiation and for 3 months after radiation. Women of non-childbearing
potential may be included if they are either surgically sterile or have been
postmenopausal for >1 year.
- Men who are able to father a child must agree to use an acceptable method of birth
control while receiving radiation, and for 3 months after radiation.
- Prior whole/partial brain irradiation or stereotactic radiosurgery
- Brain lesions with an equivalent diameter of > 40 mm in size on MRI imaging at the
time of consultation/screening for protocol eligibility.
- Lesion located in anatomic regions that are not amendable to SRS, including the brain
stem, optic apparatus, or eloquent cortex
- Radiographic or cytologic evidence of leptomeningeal disease
- Primary lesion with radiosensitive histology that includes the following: small cell
carcinoma, germ cell tumors, lymphoma, leukemia, or multiple myeloma
- Women of child-bearing potential who are pregnant or breast feeding
- Patients with multiple lesions, which by size criteria would be enrolled in a cohort
which is full at the time of enrollment and the 12 weeks DLT period has not been
