RT CHARM: Phase III Randomized Trial of Hypofractionated Post Mastectomy Radiation with Breast Reconstruction

Protocol No
ALLIANCE-A221505
Principal Investigator
Adam Currey
Phase
III
Summary
You are being asked to take part in this study so that we can determine whether a short-course radiation therapy option (3 to 4 weeks) after mastectomy is as safe and effective in the setting of breast reconstruction as the usual 5 to 6 week treatment course. Short-course radiation therapy is also called hypofractionated radiation. This study will also examine whether a shorter course of radiation therapy will lower treatment costs and improve patient satisfaction.
