  • A Study to Evaluate Oncologic Outcomes and Quality of Life in Sinonasal Cancer Patients Rochester, MN

    This is a multi-site study with several other leading centers studying sinonasal cancers. The purpose of this study is to gain a better understanding of the treatment and significant morbidity associated with sinonasal cancer and identify the impact this disease has on quality of life. In addition, several additional endpoints will focus on survival and optimal treatment strategies. Additional components will also included genomic and molecular analysis of tumor tissue as we search for novel targets for therapy.



  • A Study to Determine the Treatment Outcomes and Toxicity of Intensity-Modulated or Proton Radiation Therapy for Sinonasal Malignancy Rochester, MN

    The purpose of this study is to determine if intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) or proton radiation therapy would result in improved local control rates and lowered toxicity compared to conventional radiotherapy. Data from retrospective studies suggest that IMRT and proton radiation therapy each resulted in promising outcomes for patients with sinonasal malignancy. No previous prospective study has been conducted to evaluate the outcome of sinonasal cancer treated with IMRT or proton radiation therapy.

    The study would also assess if proton radiation therapy would result in equivalent or improved local control rate with similar or lower toxicity compared to IMRT.  It is not known if ...
