Study Population Description
Stage IB Breast Cancer Stage II Breast Cancer
This randomized phase III trial studies standard or comprehensive radiation therapy in treating patients with early-stage breast cancer who have undergone surgery. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x rays to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known whether comprehensive radiation therapy is more effective than standard radiation therapy in treating patients with breast cancer
Detailed Description
Gender Age Limit
Inclusion Criteria
  • The patient must have signed and dated an Institutional Review Board (IRB)-approved consent form that conforms to federal and institutional guidelines
  • The patient must have an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 or 1
  • Patient must have clinically T1-3, N1 breast cancer at the time of diagnosis (before neoadjuvant therapy). Clinical axillary nodal involvement can be assessed by palpation, ultrasound, CT scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET) scan, or PET/CT scan
  • Patient must have had pathologic confirmation of axillary nodal involvement at presentation (before neoadjuvant therapy) based on either a positive fine needle aspirate (FNA) (demonstrating malignant cells) or positive core needle biopsy (demonstrating invasive adenocarcinoma). The FNA or core needle biopsy can be performed either by palpation or by image guidance. Documentation of axillary nodal positivity by sentinel node biopsy (before neoadjuvant therapy) is not permitted
  • Patient must have completed a minimum of 12 weeks of standard neoadjuvant chemotherapy consisting of an anthracycline and/or taxane-based regimen
Exclusion Criteria
  • Definitive clinical or radiologic evidence of metastatic disease
  • T4 tumors including inflammatory breast cancer
  • Documentation of axillary nodal positivity before neoadjuvant therapy by sentinel node biopsy alone
  • N2 or N3 disease detected clinically or by imaging
  • Patients with histologically positive axillary nodes post neoadjuvant therapy
  • Patients with microscopic positive margins after definitive surgery
