Title:Phase II Study of High Dose Beam Scanning Proton Radiation Treatment +/- Surgical Resection of Sarcomas of the Spine, Sacrum, and Base of Skull
Principal Investigator:Paul Brown
Treatment Agent:Radiation; Surgery
Study Status:Open
Study Description:The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if intensity modulated
proton radiation therapy (IMPT) can help to control chordomas of the spine,
sacrum, or base of the skull or chondrosarcomas of the spine or sacrum. The
safety of this treatment will also be studied.

This research study is a Phase II clinical trial. Phase II clinical trials
test the effectiveness of an intervention to learn whether the intervention
works in treating a specific cancer. “Investigational” means that the
intervention is still being studied and that research doctors are trying to
find out more about it, such as the safest dose to use, the side effects it may
cause, and if the intervention is effective for treating different types of
