RTOG 1203 compared 3-D conformal radiation therapy (3D CRT) to intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) in patients (pts) with endometrial or cervical cancer requiring post-operative radiation therapy (RT) after hysterectomy. The purpose of this study was to report the first quality-adjusted survival analysis comparing the two treatments.
RTOG 1203 randomized pts having undergone hysterectomy to either 3DCRT or IMRT. Stratification factors included RT dose, chemotherapy, and disease site. The EQ-5D, both index and visual analog scale (VAS) were obtained at baseline, 5 weeks after the start of RT, 4-6 weeks post RT and 1& 3-years post RT. Quality adjusted survival (QAS) was calculated as the summation of index score multiplied by the duration of days and restricted to patients completing the EQ-5D at baseline and at least one follow-up assessment. EQ-5D index and VAS scores along with QAS were compared between treatment arms using the t-test at a two-sided significance level of 0.05.
RTOG 1203 enrolled 289 pts of which 236 consented to participating in the patient reported outcome (PRO) tools. Compliance for the index score and VAS was 93.6% vs 83.5%, 80.5% vs 72.0%, 81.4% vs 72.5% and 68.6% vs 63.6% at baseline, week 5 of RT, 4-6 weeks post RT and 1-year post RT, respectively. QAS was not statistically different in women treated with IMRT, 792.7 days vs 785.6 days (p=0.86) compared to pts treated with 3DCRT. Pts treated with IMRT had less of a decline in VAS score 5 weeks post RT, -4.90, compared to pts treated with 3DCRT, -7.48, although not statistically significant (p=0.36).
There was no difference in QAS and VAS score between patients who received IMRT vs. 3DCRT. These were secondary endpoints and the trial was not powered to show statistical differences in these endpoints. This is the first RTOG/NRG study to report QAS as an endpoint. This work may help inform statistical power for future studies of IMRT in the treatment of pts after surgery for gynecologic malignancy.
