IntraOp Announces First Randomized Phase II Selection Trial of FLASH Versus Conventional Radiotherapy for Patients with Localized Carcinomas
Study is the Second Clinical Human Trial Using Mobetron with Electron
Excerpt from the Press Release:
SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–IntraOp Medical Corporation announced the world’s first Phase II Electron FLASH Trial. It marks the first time a randomized trial will compare FLASH radiotherapy* to conventional radiotherapy in treating nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC). It is the second clinical human trial to use the IntraOp® Mobetron® electron-based linear accelerator (LINAC).
Conducted by leading FLASH researchers from the University Hospital of Lausanne (CHUV) in Switzerland, the study will focus on the safety and efficacy of local tumor control rates in patients with localized cutaneous squamous cell or basal cell carcinomas. Investigators will compare the toxicity and efficacy of Ultra-High Dose Rate (UHDR) radiotherapy (FLASH therapy) to standard of care (SOC) conventional radiotherapy in two different irradiation schemes: 22Gy single dose radiotherapy as well as 5 x 6Gy fractionated dose administered in less than two weeks. Patient enrollment is ongoing.
“This feels like a breakthrough moment in our collective study of the role and effectiveness of FLASH radiotherapy as compared to standard of care radiotherapy. This trial is another important step in the feasibility of FLASH for clinical treatment,” said Prof J Bourhis, head of CHUV Radiation Oncology Department.
