Description

Summary

Single arm, phase Ib/2a dose escalation study with an expansion cohort to determine the maximal tolerated dose (MTD) for stereotactic ablative radiotherapy of targets in the cardiac myocardium and to make a preliminary assessment of the efficacy of the treatment. The dose escalation will be guided by Time-to-Event Continual Reassessment Method (TITE-CRM) to ensure more patients will be spared dose limiting toxicities and more patients will be entered on the dose level that will be chosen as minimal dose of maximal effect. This design also allows for continual accrual of patients when delayed adverse events may be observed.
