Optimizing Preventative Adjuvant Linac-based Radiation: the OPAL Trial A Phase II/III Study of Hypofractionated Partial Breast Irradiation in Women with Early Stage Breast Cancer
MD Anderson Study Status
This phase II trial studies how well hypofractionated partial breast irradiation works in treating patients with early stage breast cancer. Hypofractionated radiation therapy delivers higher doses of radiation therapy over a shorter period of time and may kill more tumor cells and have fewer side effects. Treating only the part of the breast where the cancer started may lead to fewer side effects than standard treatment.
