MC167C: Neo-adjuvant vs. Post-operative Stereotactic Radiosurgery for Operative Metastatic Brain Tumors (SRS)
The purpose of this study is to determine whether there is an increase in the time of a first occurrence of either: local recurrence, leptomeningeal disease, or symptomatic radiation brain necrosis in patients with brain metastases who receive SRS prior to surgery as compared to patients who receive surgery prior to SRS.
MC1774, Phase II Study of Short Course Hypofractionated Proton Beam Therapy Incorporating 18F-DOPA-PET/MRI for Elderly Patients with Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma
The purpose of this study is to utilize a novel approach of combining advanced radiation delivery with proton beam therapy with advanced tumor visualization with 18F-DOPA PET and MRI imaging. We will study the effectiveness and safety of this technique delivering the entire treatment over 1-2 weeks.
Randomized Phase II Trial of Hypofractionated Dose-Escalated Photon IMRT or Proton Beam Therapy Versus Conventional Photon Irradiation With Concomitant and Adjuvant Temozolomide in Patients With Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma
This randomized phase II trial studies how well dose-escalated photon intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) or proton beam radiation therapy works compared with standard-dose radiation therapy when given with temozolomide in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays and other types of radiation to kill tumor cells and shrink tumors. Specialized radiation therapy that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and cause less damage to normal tissue. Drugs, such as temozolomide, may make tumor cells more sensitive to radiation therapy. It is not yet known whether dose-escalated photon IMRT or proton beam radiation therapy is more effective than standard-dose radiation therapy with temozolomide in treating glioblastoma.
