  • Another Successful Year for Advances in Radiation Oncology

    • Authors: Robert C. Miller
      Pages: 1 - 3
      Abstract: The year 2018 has been a successful one for ASTRO's Advances in Radiation Oncology. As we enter our third year of publishing, submissions are continuing to increase across a wide range of interdisciplinary topics. Advances is currently on target to receive over 200 submissions this year, a roughly 50% increase over 2017. Because of the hard work of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) membership in serving as peer reviewers, our time to first decision has declined to only 38 days.

  • A Comparison of Grade 4 Lymphopenia With Proton Versus Photon Radiation
           Therapy for Esophageal Cancer

    • Authors: David M. Routman; Aurelie Garant, Scott C. Lester, Courtney N. Day, William S. Harmsen, Cristobal T. Sanheuza, Harry H. Yoon, Michelle A. Neben-Wittich, James A. Martenson, Michael G. Haddock, Christopher L. Hallemeier, Kenneth W. Merrell
      Pages: 63 - 69
      Abstract: Grade 4 lymphopenia (G4L) during radiation therapy (RT) is associated with higher rates of distant metastasis and decreased overall survival in a number of malignancies, including esophageal cancer (EC). Through a reduction in integral radiation dose, proton RT (PRT) may reduce G4L relative to photon RT (XRT). The purpose of this study was to compare G4L in patients with EC undergoing PRT versus XRT.

  • Synchronous Oligometastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Managed with
           Curative-Intent Chemoradiation Therapy: Long-Term Outcomes from a Single
           Institution

    • Authors: Nikhil Yegya-Raman; Joseph Aisner, Sinae Kim, Mutlay Sayan, Diana Li, John Langenfeld, Malini Patel, Jyoti Malhotra, Salma K. Jabbour
      Abstract: Increasing evidence suggests that patients with oligometastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) may benefit from aggressive local therapy to all disease sites. Among 38 patients with synchronous oligometastatic NSCLC who were treated with definitive thoracic chemoradiation therapy at our institution, we observed favorable outcomes, despite the presence of N2-N3 disease in 84% of patients. Locoregional progression associated with inferior overall survival, suggesting the importance of locoregional control for these patients.

  • The Impact of Transitioning to Prospective Contouring and Planning Rounds
           as Peer Review

    • Authors: Murat Surucu; Amishi Bajaj, John C. Roeske, Alec M. Block, Jennifer Price, William Small, Abhishek A. Solanki
      Abstract: Our peer review program previously consisted of weekly “chart rounds” performed prior to the end of the first week of treatment. In order to perform peer review prior to the start of treatment when possible, we implemented daily prospective contouring and planning rounds (CPR).

  • Protocol-in-a-Day Workshop: A “Lean” Approach to Clinical Trial
           Development and Focus on Junior Faculty Development

    • Authors: Debra Nana Yeboa; Zhongxing Liao, Laurence Court, Emma B. Holliday, Amy Spelman, Joseph Herman
      Abstract: Most principal investigators who develop clinical trials are clinical research faculty with little formal training in protocol development. Protocol development may be complex due to the variety of stakeholders and regulatory processes involved. Therefore, we developed a half-day program where junior faculty present protocols to experienced clinical faculty and staff with the goals of optimizing mentorship opportunities, decreasing clinical trial activation time, and improving the overall quality of clinical trial protocols.

  • Anaplastic Ependymoma and Posterior Fossa Grouping in a Patient with
           H3K27ME3 Loss of Expression but Chromosomal Imbalance

    • Authors: David M. Routman; Aditya Raghunathan, Caterina Giannini, Anita Mahajan, Chris Beltran, Mahmoud G. Nagib, Amulya A. Nageswara Rao, Mary M. Skrypek, Nadia N.I. Laack
      Abstract: Ependymoma represents the third most common childhood malignancy of the brain accounting for approximately 10% of all pediatric brain malignancies, with the most common site of presentation being the posterior fossa [1]. Standard therapy involves maximal safe resection followed by radiation therapy (RT) [2]. The benefit of chemotherapy (CHT) has not been demonstrated and remains under investigation [3, 4]. Molecular analysis identified two groups within ependymomas of the posterior fossa (PF-EPN) with distinct prognoses and characteristics (Table 1), group A (PF-EPN-A) and group B (PF-EPN-B) [5, 6].

  • Pre-operative dural contact and recurrence risk after surgical cavity
           stereotactic radiosurgery for brain metastases: new evidence in support of
           consensus guidelines

    • Authors: Matthew Susko; Yao Yu, Lijun Ma, Jean Nakamura, Shannon Fogh, David R. Raleigh, Encouse Golden, Philip V. Theodosopoulos, Michael W. McDermott, Penny K. Sneed, Steve Braunstein
      Abstract: Limited data exists with regards to optimal target delineation and planning for post-operative stereotactic radiosurgery. Recent consensus guidelines recommend the addition of a dural margin to target volumes. Our report offers evidence of the association of pre-operative dural contact of the tumor volume with the risk of surgical cavity recurrence, and demonstrates the potential for benefit of a 5-10 mm dural margin.

  • Enhancement of long-term external-internal correlation by phase-shift
           detection and correction based on concurrent external bellows and internal
           navigator signals

    • Authors: Andrew Milewski; Devin Olek, Joseph Deasy, Andreas Rimner, Guang Li
      Abstract: This article reports new findings of long-lasting (6-15 minutes) stable phase shifts based on concurrent external bellows and internal navigator signals acquired during 4DMRI scans in 10 subjects, as well as significant enhancement of external-internal motion correlation by phase-shift correction. In the presence of breathing irregularities, six independent approaches from three viewpoints were applied, illustrating consistent results. This method is promising to enhance the accuracy and reliability of tumor motion prediction for respiratory-gated radiotherapy.

      Abstract: Soft tissue sarcoma (STS) is a heterogeneous group of diseases, and selection of optimal therapy remains a challenge. This retrospective study of 226 patients with STS from two independent institutional cohorts found that radiomic features extracted from MRI are independently associated with OS when accounting for age and tumor grade. This work demonstrates that radiomic features extracted from MRI are promising biomarkers for predicting OS in patients with STS.

      Abstract: The proportion of female trainees in radiation oncology has generally declined despite increasing numbers of female medical students; as a result, radiation oncology is among the bottom 5 specialties in terms of the percentage of female applicants. Recently, social media has been harnessed as a tool to bring recognition to underrepresented groups within medicine and other fields. Inspired by the wide-reaching social media campaign of #ILookLikeASurgeon to promote female physicians, members of the Society for Women in Radiation Oncology penned a new hashtag and launched the #WomenWhoCurie social media campaign on Marie Curie's birthday November 7th, as part of their strategy to raise public awareness.

      Pages: 10 - 14
      Abstract: Borderline resectable pancreatic cancer (BRPC) represents only about 10% of all patients with pancreatic cancer.1 Upfront surgery for BRPC leads to high rates of R1 or R2 resection, local recurrence, and distant metastasis.2 Therefore neoadjuvant chemotherapy with chemoradiation (CRT) is becoming the preferred treatment approach for BRPC. Modern multiagent chemotherapy in this setting often includes FOLFIRINOX (fluorouracil, irinotecan, oxaliplatin, and folinic acid) or gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel, whereas single-agent gemcitabine, fluorouracil, or capecitabine are commonly used as radiosensitizers during chemoradiation.

      Abstract: Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is a rapidly progressive disease that presents in the limited stage only 30% of the time.1 Limited-stage SCLC is typically treated with concurrent chemoradiation therapy2; however, uncommonly, this disease can present as a small, solitary pulmonary nodule without nodal involvement.3 In this early stage scenario, lobectomy with mediastinal lymph node dissection is often considered. Patients with lung cancer frequently have comorbidities that increase surgical risks; thus, surgery may not always be a viable option.

  • The Safety Profile of Concurrent Therapy for Multiple Myeloma in the
           Modern Era

    • Authors: Lucas Resende Salgado; Shutao Wang, Ava Adler, Sanders Chang, Meng Ru, Erin Moshier, Kavita Dharmarajan, Hearn Jay Cho, Richard Bakst
      Pages: 112 - 117
      Abstract: The management of multiple myeloma has evolved in the modern era, partially owing to the increasing number of biologic therapeutics. Nonetheless, radiation remains an important treatment in the management of painful lytic lesions from multiple myeloma. The goal of this study is to evaluate the side effect profile of radiation therapy (RT) while patients are concurrently treated with biologic agents.

  • Predictors of the Predominance of NonIndex Pain After Palliative Radiation
           Therapy for Painful Tumors

    • Authors: Tetsuo Saito; Ryo Toya, Etsushi Tomitaka, Tomohiko Matsuyama, Satoshi Ninomura, Takahiro Watakabe, Natsuo Oya
      Pages: 118 - 126
      Abstract: Even when index pain (pain caused by the irradiated tumor) is palliated after radiation therapy (RT), patients may not derive the full benefits of RT in the presence of another, more intense pain. In this case-control study with prospectively collected data, we sought to identify predictors of the predominance of nonindex pain after palliative RT.

  • Impact of Performance Status and Comorbidity on Palliative Radiation
           Treatment Tolerance and End-Of-Life Decision-Making

    • Authors: Haley K. Perlow; Vincent Cassidy, Benjamin Farnia, Deukwoo Kwon, Adam W. Awerbuch, Stephanie Ciraula, Scott Alford, Jacob Griggs, Joseph A. Quintana, Raphael Yechieli, Stuart E. Samuels
      Pages: 127 - 133
      Abstract: Previous studies have indicated a relationship between functional status and comorbidity on overall survival when treating patients with bone and brain metastases. However, the degree to which these findings have been integrated into modern-day practice remains unknown. This study examines the impact of performance measures, including Karnofsky Performance Status (KPS) and comorbidity, on palliative radiation therapy treatment tolerance and fractionation schedule. The relationship between a shorter fractionation schedule (SFx) and pending mortality is examined.

  • A Multi-Institutional Experience of MR-Guided Liver Stereotactic Body
           Radiation Therapy

      Pages: 142 - 149
      Abstract: Daily magnetic resonance (MR)–guided radiation has the potential to improve stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for tumors of the liver. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) introduces unique variables that are untested clinically: electron return effect, MRI geometric distortion, MRI to radiation therapy isocenter uncertainty, multileaf collimator position error, and uncertainties with voxel size and tracking. All could lead to increased toxicity and/or local recurrences with SBRT. In this multi-institutional study, we hypothesized that direct visualization provided by MR guidance could allow the use of small treatment volumes to spare normal tissues while maintaining clinical outcomes despite the aforementioned uncertainties in MR-guided treatment.

  • Use of the AAPM Safety Profile Assessment Tool to Evaluate the Change in
           Safety Culture After Implementing the RABBIT Prospective Risk Management
           System

    • Authors: Anna Ralston; Johnson Yuen
      Pages: 150 - 155
      Abstract: Hospitals traditionally focus on reactive risk management such as incident reporting, but prospective risk management systems such as failure modes and effects analysis are also important tools to reduce risks and improve the safety culture. In 2015, the St George Cancer Care Centre (STGCCC) developed a multidisciplinary risk-based system for the safe and effective implementation of new technologies and techniques, using risk and benefit balance impact templates (RABBIT) developed in-house. The purpose of this study was to determine whether risk management and the safety culture in radiation oncology were perceived to have improved since the introduction of the RABBIT system.

      Pages: 201 - 209
      Abstract: Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is an effective treatment for oligometastatic or unresectable primary malignancies, although target proximity to organs at risk (OARs) within the ultracentral thorax (UCT) limits safe delivery of an ablative dose. Stereotactic magnetic resonance (MR)–guided online adaptive radiation therapy (SMART) may improve the therapeutic ratio using reoptimization to account for daily variation in target and OAR anatomy. This study assessed the feasibility of UCT SMART and characterized dosimetric and clinical outcomes in patients treated for UCT lesions on a prospective phase 1 trial.

  • Increasing Diversity in Radiation Oncology: A Call to Action

    • Authors: Kevin T. Nead; Elizabeth Linos, Neha Vapiwala
      Abstract: Oncologic care in the United States is characterized by 2 well-documented observations. The provider workforce does not reflect the diversity of the population served, and patient outcomes are generally worse among the underrepresented population.1 To the extent that the former contributes to the latter, both overtly and indirectly, efforts to promote a broader representation within the oncology workforce may, in turn, influence outcomes in vulnerable and underserved communities.

           Glioblastomas

    • Authors: Jean Philippe Nesseler; Dorthe Schaue, William H. McBride, Mi-Heon Lee, Tania Kaprealian, Simone P. Niclou, Philippe Nickers
      Abstract: Glioblastoma (GBM) remains an incurable disease despite extensive treatment with surgical resection, irradiation, and temozolomide. In line with many other forms of aggressive cancers, GBM is currently under consideration as a target for immunotherapy. However, GBM tends to be nonimmunogenic and exhibits a microenvironment with few or no effector T cells, a relatively low nonsynonymous somatic mutational load, and a low predicted neoantigen burden. GBM also exploits a multitude of immunosuppressive strategies.

           Patients for IORT using the ASTRO Consensus Guidelines

    • Authors: Christine Chin; Sitara Hirji, Maika Onishi, Richard Ha, Bret Taback, David P. Horowitz, Eileen P. Connolly
      Abstract: Intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) as a form of accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) is controversial given the limited evidence to support its efficacy. However, it remains an attractive option for low-risk patients with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), who derive a small absolute benefit in local control with standard whole breast irradiation (WBI). We examine how the American Society for Therapeutic Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) APBI consensus guidelines (CG) may be applied to the preoperative selection of patients with DCIS for IORT and determine treatment outcomes by CG group.

      Abstract: The dose, volume, and treatment field of radiation therapy can generally be used to predict the risks of immediate and late adverse events. However, radiation recall reactions can unexpectedly affect patients who receive systemic therapy after a course of radiation therapy. Radiation recall dermatitis is the most common recall reaction. Herein, we describe a case of radiation recall mucosal toxicity of the upper aerodigestive tract in a patient who received multiple chemotherapy regimens.
