    13. 13. RT Plan evaluation
    14. 14. RT field with pre-chemo volume shown
    15. 15. RT AP field with post-chemo volume
    16. 17. History <ul><li>Treated with full-dose (35-45 Gy) extended-field RT w/ excellent disease control but significant late toxicity </li></ul><ul><li>Chemotherapy (MOPP or ABVD) was shown to salvage relapsed disease after RT and improve DFS when used as part of initial therapy 1,2 </li></ul><ul><li>Low-dose RT (15-25 Gy) following chemotherapy was shown to produce excellent EFS and OS 3-5 </li></ul><ul><li>Chemotherapy followed by low-dose RT became the standard therapy </li></ul><ul><li>The most recent trials use risk-adapted and/or response-adapted therapy </li></ul>
    17. 18. Risk groups <ul><li>Division into groups based on factors shown to influence outcome </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Histology </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Clinical stage </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>B symptoms </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Bulky disease </li></ul></ul>
    18. 19. Risk groups <ul><li>Prognostic stratification (not uniformly agreed on): </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Low-risk/favorable: Stage I or II, no B symptoms, no bulky disease and disease in fewer than 3 nodal regions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Intermediate-risk: Stage IB, IIB (or bulky disease and extranodal involvement) and sometimes IIIA </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>High-risk: Stage IIIB, IVA/B </li></ul></ul>
    19. 20. Early stage/favorable risk <ul><li>Goal = limit treatment-related toxicity and maintain success of therapy </li></ul><ul><li>Efficacy of various strategies is relatively equivalent </li></ul><ul><ul><li>~90% or better EFS or PFS </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>~95% OS </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Treatment: 2-4 cycles of chemotherapy +/- involved field RT </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Response-adapted approach: Response to the first cycles of chemotherapy determines inclusion of additional chemo or dose of RT </li></ul></ul>
    20. 21. Treatment and outcomes in early stage pediatric Hodgkin disease
    21. 22. Early stage/favorable risk Response-adapted approach <ul><ul><li>SDS group study 6,7 : single arm study; 4 cycles of VAMP followed by IFRT with RT dose determined by response to first 2 cycles </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>PR (53%): 25 .5 Gy IFRT </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>CR (47%): 15 Gy IFRT </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>German HD95 8,9 : OPPA or OEPA for two cycles </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>CR (27%): observation </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>PR with >75% reduction (53%): 25 Gy IFRT </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li><75% reduction (~5%): 20-30 Gy IFRT + 5 Gy boost to >50 ml residual </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>French MDH90 10 : 4 cycles of VBVP </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>>70% response (85%): 20 Gy IFRT </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li><70% response: 1 or 2 more cycles of OPPA and 20 or 40 Gy IFRT </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Despite the differences in treatment, all these studies had a EFS or PFS of 93% or better </li></ul></ul>
    22. 23. Early stage/favorable risk Exclusion of RT <ul><li>POG 8625 11 : Laparotomy-staged IA-IIIA disease </li></ul><ul><ul><li>4 cycles of MOPP/ABVD OR 2 cycles of MOPP/ABVD plus 25.5 Gy IFRT </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>EFS (83% vs 91%) and OS (94% vs 97%) were statistically equivalent </li></ul></ul><ul><li>CCG 5942 12 : Clinically staged I-II disease </li></ul><ul><ul><li>4 cycles of COPP/ABV </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>CRs randomized to observation vs. 21 Gy IFRT </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Stopped early after interim analysis indicated superiority of RT arm (EFS 85% vs 93%) but OS was 100% in both arms </li></ul></ul>
    23. 24. Intermediate and advanced stage disease <ul><li>More intensified regimens with a combination of diverse chemotherapeutic agents </li></ul><ul><li>Goal of minimizing treatment-related toxicity is still important but studies that reduced alkylating agents and anthracyclines with limited IFRT lead to decreased EFS 13,14 </li></ul><ul><li>RT continues to be standard therapy in this risk group (unless on protocol) </li></ul>
    24. 25. Treatment and outcomes in intermediate/advanced stage pediatric Hodgkin disease
    25. 26. Intermediate and advanced stage disease <ul><li>POG 15 : 8 cycles of MOPP/ABVD +/- total-nodal irradiation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>No diff by intent-to-treat analysis </li></ul></ul><ul><li>CCG 521 16 : 6 cycles MOPP alternating with 6 cycles of ABVD vs 6 cycles of ABVD with 21 Gy extended-field RT </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Equivalent outcome </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>EFS 77% vs 87%, P = .09; OS 84% vs 90%, P=.45 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>German HD-95 8,9 : 2 cycles of OPPA or OEPA +2-4 cycles of COPP </li></ul><ul><ul><li>>70% reduction in tumor volume: No RT </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li><70% reduction: IFRT </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>OS equivalent but EFS with RT =92% vs with chemo alone = 69% </li></ul></ul>
    26. 27. RT Planning <ul><li>Historical mantle field and total nodal irradiation </li></ul>
    27. 28. RT Fields
    28. 29. IFRT <ul><li>IFRT requires careful evaluation of pre- and post-chemotherapy volumes </li></ul><ul><li>CTV encompasses post-chemo mediastianal width laterally and pre-chemo extent in sup/inf direction </li></ul><ul><li>An anterior laryngeal block can be used if it does not shield involved nodes </li></ul><ul><li>If the axillae are to be treated humeral head blocks are used </li></ul><ul><li>CT based planning allows evaluation of adequate CTV coverage and normal tissue dose </li></ul>
    29. 30. IFRT <ul><li>Whole-heart irradiation indications: pericardial involvement/invasion </li></ul><ul><li>Splenic irradiation is indicated in pts with splenic involvement but renal dose must be limited to mean <10.5 Gy or keep 2/3rds of the kidney to <15 Gy </li></ul><ul><li>If the pelvis needs to be treated the ovaries should be relocated and the dose should be limited to <3 Gy </li></ul><ul><li>When treating a male, ensure on a daily basis that the scrotum is not in the pelvic field </li></ul>
    30. 31. Late Toxicity of Radiotherapy <ul><li>Growth abnormalities 17 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Bone and soft-tissue hypoplasia in prepubertal children </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Thyroid sequela 18,19 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hypothyroidism </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hyperthyroidism </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Benign and malignant thyroid nodules </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>17% of children treated with RT dose <26 Gy had thyroid abnormalities compared to 78% with >26 Gy </li></ul></ul>
    31. 32. Late Toxicity <ul><li>Cardiovascular disease 20,21 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Atherosclerotic heart disease </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Valvular dysfunction </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pericardial disease </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Pulmonary toxicity 22 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Decrease in pulmonary function tests </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Sterility/Infertility: limit dose to ovaries to 3Gy </li></ul><ul><li>Increase incidence of secondary cancers 23-25 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Late effects study group: 30 yr cumulative incidence of SC = 26.3% in pts dx’ed before age 16 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Breast cancer was most elevated solid cancer </li></ul></ul>
    32. 33. Late Toxicity <ul><li>Toxicities of higher dose RT are well documented but it is less clear what toxicities will exist with 15-25 Gy bc many toxicities are dose and volume dependent </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Second solid cancer risk appears to be dose dependent with patients w/ <23 Gy mediastinal RT with lower risk of developing breast cancer 26 </li></ul></ul>
    33. 34. Future Directions <ul><li>Improve the technique of response-adapted therapy </li></ul><ul><li>Incorporate functional imaging into evaluating treatment response and RT planning </li></ul><ul><li>Improve upon late toxicities AND determine the effects of decreased dose IFRT on late toxicities </li></ul><ul><li>Refine risk categories </li></ul><ul><li>Improve treatment regimen for high-risk disease </li></ul>
