  • Outcomes and toxicity of 313 prostate cancer patients receiving helical
           tomotherapy after radical prostatectomy

    • Authors: Lindsay Jensen; Bertram Yuh, Jeffrey Y.C. Wong, Timothy Schultheiss, Jonathan Cheng, Nora Ruel, Przemyslaw Twardowski, Sagus Sampath
      Abstract: There are limited long-term data on patients treated with image-guided intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IG-IMRT) for prostate cancer recurrence or high risk disease features following radical prostatectomy. We report single institution results for patients treated with IG-IMRT and identify variables associated with outcome.

  • Factors influencing the utilization of prophylactic cranial irradiation in
           patients with limited-stage small cell lung cancer

    • Authors: Benjamin H. Lok; Jennifer Ma, Amanda Foster, Carmen A. Perez, Weiji Shi, Zhigang Zhang, Bob T. Li, Charles M. Rudin, Andreas Rimner, Abraham J. Wu
      Abstract: Brain metastases are common in limited-stage small cell lung cancer (LS-SCLC) due to the inability of most chemotherapeutics to penetrate the blood-brain barrier. Prophylactic cranial irradiation (PCI) is therefore recommended for use in patients with a good response to concurrent chemoradiotherapy. However, PCI is not always delivered; therefore we investigate the reasons for PCI omission in patients who underwent therapy with curative intent.

  • SBRT to adrenal metastases provides high local control with minimal

    • Authors: Kristin Plichta; Nathan Camden, Muhammed Furqan, Taher Abu Hejleh, Gerald H. Clamon, Jun Zhang, Ryan T. Flynn, Sudershan K. Bhatia, Mark C. Smith, John M. Buatti, Bryan G. Allen
      Abstract: The adrenal glands are a common site of metastases because of their rich blood supply. Previously, adrenal metastases were treated with systemic chemotherapy or, more rarely, with surgical resection or palliative radiation therapy. Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) has recently emerged as an attractive non-invasive approach to definitively treat these lesions. We present our experience in treating adrenal metastases with SBRT and review the currentliterature.

  • The pervasive crisis of diminishing radiotherapy access for vulnerable
           populations in the united states – part 1: african-american patients

    • Authors: Shearwood McClelland; Brandi R Page, Jerry J Jaboin, Christina H Chapman, Curtiland Deville, Charles R Thomas
      Abstract: African-Americans suffer the highest burden of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States, and have been persistently less likely to receive interventional care, even when such care has been proven superior to conservative management by randomized controlled trials. The presence of disparities in access to radiotherapy (RT) for African-American cancer patients has rarely been examined in an expansive fashion.

      Abstract: Moderately hypofractionated prostate radiation (HIMRT) shortens the treatment course while providing outcomes comparable to conventionally fractionated radiation (CIMRT). To determine the long-term economic value of HIMRT including the costs of managing long-term radiation toxicities, a cost minimization analysis compared CIMRT to dose-escalated HIMRT using patient-level data from a randomized trial.

  • Oncological outcomes from trimodality therapy receiving definitive doses
           of neoadjuvant chemoradiation (≥60 gy) and factors influencing
           consideration for surgery in stage III non-small cell lung cancer

Nichols, Josephine Feliciano, Søren Bentzen, Shahed Badiyan, Shamus R. Carr, Joseph Friedberg, Charles B. Simone, Martin J. Edelman, Steven J. Feigenberg, Pranshu Mohindra
      Abstract: Guidelines for locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer (LA-NSCLC) recommend definitive chemoradiation for cN2-N3 disease, reserving surgery for patients with minimal nodal involvement at presentation. Current literature suggests that surgery after chemoradiation (CRT) for stage III NSCLC can improve freedom-from-recurrence (FFR), but has not consistently demonstrated an improvement in overall survival (OS), perhaps partly due to low (45-50.4Gy) preoperative doses delivered resulting in low rates of mediastinal nodal clearance (MNC).

      Abstract: More than half of patients treated for multiple brain metastases with whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT) will develop intracranial progression. This multi-institutional pooled analysis included 205 patients from nine centres receiving two courses of WBRT, each for multiple metastases. In this cohort, application of the recursive partitioning analysis score was not predictive of median survival, leading to the construction of a new index, the ReRT score.

      Abstract: Stereotactic radiotherapy (hSRT) uses precisely focused radiation, often delivered in short courses, to brain metastases unsuited for single fraction treatment, but the optimal dose and fractionation schema remains unclear. We performed a multi-institutional retrospective review of patients treated with various SRT regimens. Total prescription dose was the only factor significantly associated with local control. Dose per fraction was not found to be associated with tumor control.

      Abstract: In this report we investigate the treatment related mortality risk and survival outcomes of 250 patients treated with twice daily neoadjuvant chemoradiation followed by transhiatal esophagectomy. This treatment regimen is an effective therapy with outcomes equivalent or better to those reported in other studies and is associated with minimal treatment related mortality. Additionally, pathological response to hyperfractioned accelerated chemoradiation therapy is associated with improved overall survival and local control.

      Abstract: The role of regional nodal irradiation (RNI) in the management of subgroups of patients with early stage breast cancer remains controversial. Using the National Cancer Data Base, we demonstrate that nearly one-third of women who met the selection criteria for the large National Cancer Institute of Canada MA.20 trial received RNI between 2004-2012. No significant improvement in 5-year overall survival was identified, regardless of pathological nodal involvement, in accordance with the MA.20 trial findings.

      Abstract: In a cohort of 131 patients with DLBCL age 80 and older with chemo-sensitive disease, outcomes rivaled those of younger patients. For limited stage disease, abbreviated chemotherapy followed by consolidative radiation therapy was equivalent in efficacy to chemotherapy alone (6-8 cycles), but was associated with lower rates of myelosuppression, neuropathy and congestive heart failure. In advanced stage patients, radiation therapy appeared to improve local control. Older patients should be considered for consolidative RT after immunochemotherapy.

      Abstract: Time sorted 4DCT scans are used in radiation therapy (RT) for motion management; however these scans are associated with elevated dose to the patient. Iterative image reconstruction algorithms are known to reduce the imaging dose by 30-50% while maintaining the signal to noise ratio. The study aims to evaluate whether one such iterative reconstruction algorithm, SAFIRE, can reduce imaging dose while maintaining the necessary contrast-to-noise to generate clinically valid 4DCT datasets.

      Abstract: Radiotherapy is an integral part in the management of esophageal cancer. While the current standard is 3D conformal radiotherapy, Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) affords improved organ sparing effects over the 3D technique. However, reported clinical experience using IMRT has been sparse. Herein we report the largest single institutional experience using IMRT, demonstrating excellent toxicity and survival outcomes relative to historical controls for patients treated with neoadjuvant or definitive chemoradiotherapy.

      Abstract: Locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC) patients who achieve complete pathologic response after neoadjuvant chemoradiation experience improved outcomes. Radiation dose escalation has been shown to improve rates of tumor response. We conducted a case-control study of LARC patients who received standard dose or concomitant boost chemoradiation prior to surgical resection. Boost patients had improved tumor downstaging and local control without increases in early or late toxicity including surgical complications.

      Abstract: Emerging immuno-oncology combination strategies include utilizing radiotherapy (RT) with immunotherapeutic checkpoint blockade monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) such as CTLA-4 and PD-1, represent a new and exciting strategy to improve outcomes in solid tumor malignancies [1, 2]. RT has the potential to augment immune responses [3, 4], and cancer cells destroyed by RT are considered to be a source of tumor associated antigens that can be processed by professional antigen presenting cells (APCs) [5].

      Abstract: Outcomes after Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) for thoracic esophageal carcinoma are largely unknown. We conducted a propensity matched analysis of 65 patients treated with VMAT and concurrent chemotherapy with 130 patients treated with step-and-shoot (ss)IMRT and concurrent chemotherapy and found VMAT had better target conformity with comparable toxicity, response, recurrence and survival outcomes. VMAT is an efficient, safe and effective radiation delivery method for the treatment of esophageal cancer.

      Abstract: Prostate motion during radiotherapy is one of the factors limiting its accuracy. In this study, we modeled prostate motion as a random walk. With access to time-resolved prostate motion during radiotherapy from 17 patients we performed a detailed analysis and time-resolved simulations. We found that random walk is a viable option for prostate motion modeling and can potentially be used to simulate radiotherapy delivery and analyze treatment margins.

      Abstract: Patients with LAPC who received induction chemotherapy followed by chemoradiation with definitive intent between 2005 and 2016 were reviewed. Toxicities for patients treated with escalated dose radiation therapy (EDR) utilizing an intensity modulated radiation therapy technique were recorded. Overall acute and late toxicity rates with EDR were low. Patients experienced lower gastrointestinal and overall toxicity as compared to patients treated with conventional doses and 3D conformal techniques.

      Abstract: We investigated the impact of audiovisual biofeedback breath-hold guidance on MRI measured lung tumor position reproducibility and volume consistency. Inhalation and exhalation breath-hold positions determined in a breath-hold training session were utilized across two MRI sessions (pre- and mid-treatment). Inter-fraction lung tumor position and volume were significantly more reproducible and consistent respectively when utilizing audiovisual biofeedback breath-hold compared to conventional breath-hold with audio-instructions alone.

      Abstract: Bone involvments by Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) are considered rare events and English Medical Literature describes them only in sporadic case reports. Consequently robust indications for a rational clinical management are lacking. We report the case of a middle age man in clinical follow-up for a CLL who complained about a Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) refractory pain at right tibial level and an acute episode of anemia. Instrumental exams and a bioptic sample surprisingly demonstrated a bone tibial localization by CLL.

  • Pathologic Response after Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy Predicts Locoregional
           Control in Patients with Triple Negative Breast Cancer

    • Authors: Victor E. Chen; Erin F. Gillespie, Kaveh Zakeri, James D. Murphy, Catheryn M. Yashar, Sharon Lu, John P. Einck
      First page: 105
      Abstract: The purpose of this manuscript is to describe how pathologic response after neoadjuvant chemotherapy for triple negative breast cancer impacts locoregional recurrence risk and disease-free survival in the setting of adjuvant radiation. This is a single-institution, retrospective study. We conclude that presence of residual disease in either breast or nodes is associated with significantly higher rates of locoregional failure as well as lower disease-free survival despite adjuvant radiation.

      First page: 118
      Abstract: This study aims to highlight a typical lipid signature able to predict the tumor response to preoperative chemoradiotherapy in advanced rectal cancer, by using a Lipidomics approach. Five lipids were validated as biomarkers able to predict response before treatment, resulting in a ROC curve characterized by an (area under the curve) AUC of 0.95. Results suggest as serum lipids could represent an useful tool in prediction of CRT response, towards a personalized treatment.

      Abstract: This study investigates the magnitude of inter-fraction setup error, level of patient comfort and radiation therapist (RT) acceptance of the immobilisation device required to implement transperineal ultrasound (TPUS) compared to the current standard immobilisation device. Inter-fraction setup shifts were compared and questionnaires were used to illicit patient and RT perceptions. The Clarity immobilisation system (CIS) was stable, reproducible and well tolerated by patients. RTs preferred the leg immobiliser (LI) over the CIS.

      Abstract: This study assesses outcomes of 28 patients who presented with either a second malignant genitourinary malignancy or a local recurrence after radical pelvic radiotherapy for a primary malignancy. All had advanced, symptomatic, inoperable bulky disease refractory to systemic therapy and/or narcotics and thus received high dose re-irradiation (re-RT) for palliation of either pain or bleeding. Re-RT was well tolerated with minor short-term toxicity and 92% control of symptoms, which was durable in 67% of patients.

      First page: 159
      Abstract: We aimed to investigate whether adjuvant radiation improves overall survival in major salivary gland cancers. Furthermore, we wanted to identify which subset of patients benefits the most from receiving radiation. 8243 patients with salivary gland cancer were identified from the NCDB. Patients in the high-risk group had greater survival (HR = 0.76; p=.002) if they received adjuvant radiation therapy.

      First page: 167
      Abstract: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) is a relatively novel technique that has the potential to improve the therapeutic ratio for tumors of the head and neck due to its superior ability to visualize soft tissue compared to the computed tomography (CT)-based image-guided platforms, which have historically been used. This study reports our preliminary experience with the use of MRI-guided re-irradiation for recurrent head neck tumors.

      Abstract: The intention of this study was to establish a relationship between mediastinal lymph node involvement and heart dose in patients treated with definitive radiotherapy for stage III non-small cell lung cancer. In our cohort of patients, were able to show that heart dose was correlated with both multi-station nodal involvement and subcarinal nodal involvement, and therefore may be a surrogate for extent of nodal involvement rather than an independent predictor of survival.

      Abstract: The present study evaluated 37 patients with stage I or II Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) in order to understand the impact positron emission tomography–computed tomography (PET/CT) scans had on involved site radiotherapy (ISRT) field design and pattern of relapse among HL patients. These patients received first-line chemotherapy followed by consolidative involved site radiotherapy (ISRT) to all initial sites of disease. The study found that patients with stage I/II HL receiving ISRT without pretreatment PET-CT scans appear to have an increased risk for relapse in adjacent nodal stations just outside the radiation field.

      Abstract: This study assessed outcomes for oligometastatic malignant melanoma treated with stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT). Patients with pre- and post-treatment 18F-FDG-PET/CT scans were included. Metastasis control was excellent after SBRT and majority of patients achieved a complete metabolic response. Single-fraction equivalent dose > 24 Gy resulted in the optimal metastasis control. Prospectively captured acute and late toxicity were minimal. SBRT should be discussed with oligometastatic MM patients in addition to surgery and ablation options.

      Abstract: Patient-reported distress (PRD) has not been assessed in association with survival after radiotherapy (RT). This study aimed to evaluate the association between PRD level and survival after definitive RT by retrospectively reviewing a PRD questionnaire completed by patients undergoing definitive RT. The study showed that higher distress is associated with decreased survival.

      Abstract: This retrospective review evaluated the long-term consequences of vertebral body sparing proton CSI on young children with medulloblastoma. Clinical endpoints were measured including chronic back pain, diagnosis of scoliosis, and need for spine surgery. Radiographic endpoints were measured including scoliosis and changes in vertebral body height, as well as bone marrow changes in the vertebral body. With this limited cohort we found no severe spinal toxicities from this treatment technique and excellent disease control.

      Abstract: Cranial radiotherapy (RT) prevents and controls disease in the central nervous system of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patients but causes long term side effects, especially growth abnormalities. Prior studies of children receiving 18 Gy have shown significant height impairment, but the effect of 12 Gy on height and weight indices is unknown. This study focuses on ALL patients treated with either 12 or 18 Gy cranial RT and followed in the long term survivors’ clinic.

      Abstract: To evaluate whether the dosimetric advantage of prone positioning with IMRT is maintained throughout the entire treatment course, we conducted a prospective study in which 10 patients had prone and supine plans generated. Patients were re-scanned weekly in both positions and “delivered” doses were re-calculated for each fraction. We conclude that prone positioning with a belly-board may provide superior small bowel sparing to supine IMRT with similar interfraction dose variation to supine treatment.
