Study Seeks Volunteers to Measure Safety of Treatment 'Boost' for Patients with Oropharyngeal Cancer
Date:7/23/2010

. All Phase I trials begin with a dose of the experimental treatment that is believed to be safe, followed by very careful monitoring of the patients' reactions. If the dose of 8Gy6 is well tolerated, the next group of patients will get a dose 2Gy higher, and again the side effects will be carefully monitored. The maximum dose will be 18Gy.

"This trial is one of the very first attempts to increase cure rates for the large number of patients with HPV-unassociated oropharyngeal cancer," Dr. Schwartz stated. "SRS is a safe, highly sophisticated technique that has generated much interest for its ability to overcome resistance of tumors to radiation. We are pleased that the North Shore-LIJ Health System has the technology and the expertise to offer this trial before any other center in the metropolitan area or anywhere in the country. Our hope is that it serves as a stepping stone for expanded use of SRS as part of standard treatment for people who face this illness."

To see if you are eligible to participate in the study or to find out more, call Ms. Parise at 718-470-7190, extension 66773.
