Adjuvant Hypofractionated Whole Pelvis Radiation Therapy in Endometrial Cancer
Phase I Study of Adjuvant Hypofractionated Whole Pelvis Radiation Therapy in Endometrial Cancer.
Studying adjuvant hypofractionated whole pelvis radiation therapy in Endometrial Cancer.
This is a Phase I study evaluating the safety of adjuvant hypofractionated whole pelvis radiation therapy (WPRT) in endometrial cancer. The primary objective of the study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose per fraction (MTDF), defined by acceptable acute clinician-reported GI and GU toxicity and patient-reported GI toxicity, of WPRT from among the two study dose levels. Acute GI and GU toxicity will be assessed according to both the NCI Common Toxicity Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE), version 5.0, and Patient Reported Outcome-CTCAE (PRO-CTCAE). Clinician-reported dose-limiting toxicity (C-DLT) is a binary outcome (yes/no), defined as an acute grade 3 or higher GI or GU per CTCAE, occurring within three months of completing WPRT. Patient-reported DLT (P-DLT) is a binary outcome, defined by a GI toxicity with a score of ≥4 on the 5-point scale per PRO-CTCAE, occurring within three months of completing WPRT. The MTDF is defined as the minimum of the dose with a C-DLT rate closest to the clinician-reported target C-DLT rate of 20% and the dose with a P-DLT rate closest to the patient-reported target P-DLT rate of 55%. Toxicity results of NRG-RTOG 1203- A Randomized Phase III Study of Standard vs. IMRT Pelvic Radiation for Post-Operative Treatment of Endometrial and Cervical Cancer- were used to define the acceptable percentage of DLTs. The study will accrue participants in cohorts of size 3. The starting dose level will be dose level 1 (41.25 Gy in 15 fx).

Inclusion Criteria: - Patients with histologically confirmed stage I, II, or III endometrial cancer who require pelvic radiation as determined by their treating radiation oncologist and/or gynecologic oncologist. Patients may also be identified through the Gynecologic Oncology Multidisciplinary Tumor Board. The decision to include Stage I patients will be based on risk factors for recurrence including tumor grade, extent of myometrial invasion, presence of lymphovascular space invasion, and histology (endometrioid, papillary serous, clear cell, carcinosarcoma). Stage I patients may include those who are ineligible for vaginal cuff brachytherapy due to patient anatomy or those who are at higher risk for pelvic nodal recurrence and pelvic external beam radiotherapy is preferred over vaginal cuff brachytherapy. - Age ≥18 years. - ECOG performance status ≤2 (Karnofsky ≥60%). - Patients must have undergone total hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy with or without pelvic and/or para-aortic lymph node dissection/sampling or sentinel lymph node (SLN) dissection. - Patients with a prior or concurrent malignancy whose natural history or treatment does not have the potential to interfere with the safety or efficacy assessment of the investigational regimen are eligible for this trial. - Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document. Exclusion Criteria: - Patients with an Inflammatory Bowel Disease diagnosis, regardless of disease activity. - Patients with current, active disease involving periaortic node(s). This is based on histologically positive para-aortic node(s) removed at time of surgery. - Patients with gross residual disease following surgical resection. Final pathologic margins must be negative (no tumor on ink). This may also be determined clinically by the gynecologic oncologist at time of surgery or post-operative imaging if applicable. Post-operative imaging is not required at time of surgery. - Patients who have ever had pelvic radiotherapy prior to entering the study. - Patients who are receiving any other investigational agents. Patients who have received other investigational agents previously who are no longer receiving these investigational agents may be eligible at the discretion of the PI. - Patients with uncontrolled intercurrent illness. - Patients with psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements.
