  Purpose

This study will evaluate the most effective radiation dose. Patients will be randomized (like flipping a coin) to receive either low dose stereotactic radiotherapy (defined as "14 Gy") or high dose stereotactic radiotherapy (defined as 18 Gy).

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized

Official Title: Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) for One or Two Localized Spine Metastases

Further study details as provided by Washington University School of Medicine:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary endpoint of the primary objective is to estimate the pain control rate, function, and quality of life [ Time Frame: 6 months after end of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    1, 3, and 6 months after treatment


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary endpoint of the secondary objective is to estimate the local control rate [ Time Frame: 6 months after end of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 2

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: 1
Low-dose arm Single-fraction Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) to 14 Gy
Radiation: Stereotactic Radiosurgery
Active Comparator: 2
High-dose arm Single-fraction Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) to 18Gy
Radiation: Stereotactic Radiosurgery

Detailed Description:

This study will evaluate the pain control and the quality of life of patients with spinal metastases using stereotactic radiotherapy. Stereotactic radiotherapy is referred to as "targeted therapy". It uses special equipment to position the patient and guide the focused beams of radiation toward the cancer and away from normal surrounding tissue. This higher dose technique may work better to kill cancer cells with fewer side effects than standard radiation therapy.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Signed informed consent.
  • Age greater than or equal to 18 years old.
  • Prior histologically-proven, non-hematogenous malignancy (Specific exclusions are multiple myeloma and lymphoma).
  • Radiographic evidence of one or two non-contiguous spinal metastases amenable to SRS.
  • Metastatic disease must be symptomatic (causing either pain or neurologic symptoms).
  • Maximum tumor size less than or equal to 5 cm.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • No prior radiation delivered to the involved area
  • No evidence of spinal instability requiring urgent surgical intervention.
  • No evidence of spinal cord compression requiring emergent surgical or radiotherapeutic intervention.
  • No plans for concomitant antineoplastic therapy (including standard fractionated RT, chemotherapy, biologic, vaccine therapy, or surgery) while on this protocol except at disease progression.Concomitant is defined as within 3 days before or after radiosurgery.
  • No pregnant or lactating women.
  • No active systemic infection.
  • No evidence of myelopathy or cauda equina syndrome on clinical evaluation
