Wilms' Tumor (Kidney Tumor) Clinical Studies

1 - 1 of 1

PBS for Renal Tumors

The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the side effects of using proton radiation therapy for kidney tumors.  Proton radiation can limit the radiation exposure of normal tissues and decrease the side effects from radiation compared to the current standard methods of treating kidney tumors with x-ray radiation. Proton radiation has proven to be as effective at treating tumors as current standard radiation methods in other disease sites, but it has not been used for treatment of kidney tumors in children.
