MRL-Boost Trial Summary

This trial is testing a new treatment for prostate cancer that involves MR-guided radiotherapy. 40 patients will be recruited and monitored for up to 5 years.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for men with localized prostate cancer confirmed by tissue analysis and MRI, who are categorized as low to high-risk but ideally have only one high-risk factor. They must be planning external beam radiation therapy (possibly with hormone therapy), able to perform daily activities (ECOG 0 or 1), at least 18 years old, and can consent to the study. Men with severe bowel diseases, claustrophobia, metastases, certain genetic conditions or prior pelvic radiotherapy cannot join.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests if giving an MR-guided radiotherapy boost directly to the tumor visible on MRI before or after whole gland radiation improves outcomes in prostate cancer patients. It's a single-arm feasibility study following participants for up to five years post-treatment.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
While not explicitly listed here, potential side effects of MR-guided radiotherapy may include skin irritation at the treatment site, fatigue, urinary issues like increased frequency or discomfort during urination, and bowel problems such as diarrhea.
