Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I/II Dose Escalation Study to Evaluate Pain Response Using Extracranial Stereotactic Radiosurgery to Treat Paraspinal Metastasis in Patients Who Have Received Prior Spinal Irradiation

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

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the optimal dose of stereotactic spinal irradiation needed to obtain durable pain control at 4 weeks in a previously irradiated spine field. [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the duration of pain control for each dose level. [ Time Frame: 4 weeks after radiation,4 month first year, 6 months second year, and then annually for 2 additional years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Determine the rate of radiation-induced myelopathy from stereotactic re-irradiation of the spinal metastases. [ Time Frame: 4 weeks after radiation,4 month first year, 6 months second year, and then annually for 2 additional years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Determine the pattern of failure after stereotactic irradiation of spinal metastases. [ Time Frame: 4 weeks after radiation,4 month first year, 6 months second year, and then annually for 2 additional years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Measure quality of life in patients treated with stereotactic radiotherapy (ESRT) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks after radiation,4 month first year, 6 months second year, and then annually for 2 additional years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

  • Paraspinal Metastasis
  • Prior Spinal Irradiation
Experimental: Group 1

This study has 4 treatment groups: This will be determined based on what radiation treatment doses have been previously given to the patient on this study, how effective the dose has been with treatment patient's pain, and how many side effects participants before you have experienced.
Other Names:
  • Stereotactic Radiosurgery
  • Paraspinal Metastasis
  • Prior Spinal Irradiation
Experimental: Group 3
1600 cGY radiation
Radiation: Stereotactic radiotherapy
This study has 4 treatment groups: This will be determined based on what radiation treatment doses have been previously given to the patient on this study, how effective the dose has been with treatment patient's pain, and how many side effects participants before you have experienced.
Other Names:
  • Stereotactic Radiosurgery
  • Paraspinal Metastasis
  • Prior Spinal Irradiation

Detailed Description:

The goal of the study is to determine the lowest dose of radiation that can be given to effectively control the tumor and provide effective pain relief.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:
