Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to compare the effects on low risk breast cancer receiving usual care that includes regional radiation therapy, with receiving no regional radiation therapy. Researchers want to see if not giving this type of radiation treatment works as well at preventing breast cancer from coming back.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Breast Cancer Radiation: Radiation Other: No Radiation Phase 3

Detailed Description:
Women with node positive breast cancer normally will receive endocrine therapy and some may receive chemotherapy to help prevent the cancer from coming back. Many women will also receive radiotherapy to the whole breast/chest area and the surrounding lymph glands (called regional radiotherapy). No one really knows whether patients with low risk breast cancer need to receive regional radiotherapy. Some women may be getting regional radiotherapy who do not need it. These women may be exposed to the side effects of their treatment without benefit.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. compare the breast cancer recurrence-free interval (BCRFI) between patients that received regional RT or not [ Time Frame: 9.5 years ]
    Defined as time from randomization to time of invasive recurrent disease in the ipsilateral chestwall, breast, regional nodes, distant sites or death due to BC.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Compare the invasive disease-free survival between patients that received regional RT or not. [ Time Frame: 9.5 years ]
    Defined as time from randomization to time of invasive recurrent disease in the ipsilateral chestwall, breast, regional nodes, distant sites or death due to BC

  2. Compare the breast cancer mortality between patients that received regional RT or not. [ Time Frame: 9.5 years ]
    Defined as death due to BC

  3. Compare the overall survival (OS) between patients that received regional RT or not [ Time Frame: 9.5 years ]
    Defined as the time from randomization to the time of death from any cause

  4. Compare the locoregional recurrence-free interval (LRRFI) between patients that received regional RT or not. [ Time Frame: 9.5 years ]
    Defined as time from randomization to time of invasive recurrent disease in the ipsilateral chestwall, breast or regional nodes, or death to due to BC

  5. Compare the distant recurrence-free interval (DRFI) between patients that received regional RT or not. [ Time Frame: 9.5 years ]
    Defined as time from randomization to time of invasive recurrent disease in distant sites or death due to BC

  6. Number and severity of adverse events using the current CTCAE version 4 [ Time Frame: 9.5 years ]
  7. Compare arm volume and mobility measurements between patients that received regional RT or not [ Time Frame: 9.5 years ]
    A Fisher's Exact Test will be used to compare lymphedema and arm abduction deficit between two arms. Defined as a difference in arm abduction of 10% or greater in the comparison of the ipsilateral to the contralateral arm.

  8. Compare patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and the quality of life (QOL) between patients that received regional RT or not [ Time Frame: 9.5 years ]
    using the NSABP Questionnaire for patients treated by BCS or mastectomy.

  9. Compare the quality of life (QOL) between patients that received regional RT or not [ Time Frame: 9.5 years ]
    Overall QOL (EORTC QLQ-C30) will be compared between the two treatment groups using a similar approach.

  10. Compare the cost-effectiveness between patients that received regional RT or not [ Time Frame: 9.5 years ]
    Costs will be expressed in $US and $CAN base currencies based on the final year of the study. An average cost per study subject by treatment arm for an overall mean cost per study arm will be generated

  11. Compare the quality of life (QOL) between patients that received regional RT or not [ Time Frame: 9.5 years ]
    breast symptoms (NSABP B32 Questionnaire) will be compared between the two treatment groups using a similar approach.

  12. Compare the quality of life (QOL) between patients that received regional RT or not [ Time Frame: 9.5 years ]
    skin symptoms and fatigue (EORTC QLQ-BR23) will be compared between the two treatment groups using a similar approach.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must have newly diagnosed histologically proven invasive carcinoma of the breast with no evidence of metastases.
  • Patients must have been treated by BCS or mastectomy.
  • Patients treated by BCS or mastectomy and axillary dissection must have 1-3 positive axillary nodes (macrometastases, > 2 mm).
  • Patients treated by BCS and SLNB alone must have only 1-2 positive axillary nodes (macrometastases, > 2 mm).
  • Patients treated by mastectomy and SLNB alone must have only 1 positive axillary node (macrometastases, > 2 mm).
  • Patients must be ER ≥ 1% and HER2 negative on local testing
  • Patients must have an Oncotype DX recurrence score <18
  • Patient must consent to provision of, and investigator(s) must confirm access to and agree to submit to the CCTG Central Tumour Bank, a representative formalin fixed paraffin block of tumour tissue in order that the specific correlative marker assays described in the protocol may be conducted
  • Patient must consent to provision of samples of blood in order that the specific correlative marker assays described in the protocol may be conducted.
  • Patients must have had endocrine therapy initiated or planned for ≥ 5 years. Endocrine therapy can be given concurrently or following RT.
  • Patients may or may not have had adjuvant chemotherapy.
  • RT must be administered within 12 weeks of definitive surgery if the patient is not treated with chemotherapy. If adjuvant chemotherapy is given, RT must begin within 2-8 weeks after the last dose.

  • Patients must be accessible for treatment and follow-up. Investigators must assure themselves the patients randomized on this trial will be available for complete documentation of the treatment, adverse events, and follow-up.
  • In accordance with CCTG policy, protocol treatment is to begin within 3 weeks of patient randomization.
  • Women of childbearing potential must have agreed to use an effective contraceptive method. A woman is considered to be of "childbearing potential" if she has had menses at any time in the preceding 12 consecutive months.
