Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The registry has set an initial accrual goal of 50 patients per year until the registry is collecting national data, then it is anticipated there will be 400 patients per year recruited with a total of 4,000 participants in 10 years.
There are no clinical interventions required for participants enrolled onto the registry. All enrolled participants will receive treatment, and follow-up care as pre-determined by their treating clinician, in accordance with the standard of care at the treating institution. All treatment interventions that participants receive will be recorded on the registry database from the patient medical record, including (but not necessarily limited to) surgery, immunotherapy and/or chemotherapy (systemic therapy), as part of the initial treatment regimen and any subsequent therapy. Follow up of outcomes, including disease response, treatment toxicities and any disease progression and or survival will be recorded from the patient medical record as that information becomes available. The Data Manager at each treating site will update the participant's status in the REDCap database yearly from the available medical record and may also contact the referring or treating clinician directly to obtain follow-up results as required.
Participants will remain on the registry and will be followed until death, withdrawal of consent, or the registry is terminated.
Data collected is part of routine follow up care provided by the participants treating institution and collected from the medical record. There is no anticipated participant input.

Statistical methods / analysis
Based on work completed for the MSAC 1638 application and the patient modelling and incidence rate data collected from 2015 and estimates made for 2025 population numbers provided to the Department of Health and Wellbeing and SA Health, there is an estimated national participant annual accrual onto the registry of:
• 180 > 25 years - Adult
• 233 < 25 years – Adolescent Young Adult (AYA)/Paediatric

The data collected in the registry will be used to describe the patterns of care and long-term toxicities for paediatric, AYA and rare adult cancer patients being treated with photon and or particle radiotherapy. As participation in the registry grows and the dataset matures, the intended use of the registry is to retrospectively determine the outcomes related to both disease and toxicities of photon treated cohorts in comparison to proton cohorts.

Summary
Brief summary
This is an observational, longitudinal registry of paediatric, adolescent, young adult (AYA) and rare adult tumour patients from a select group of tumour streams treated with radiotherapy. The registry is designed to describe the patterns of care for patients receiving photon versus proton radiation treatment.

Who is it for?

You may be eligible for this study if you are receiving radiotherapy for cancers of the following types: Base of Skull Meningioma, Chordoma, Chondrosarcoma, Tumour of the vertebral column or bony pelvis, Chordoma, Chondrosarcoma, Osteosarcoma, Ewing’s sarcoma of pelvis, Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the salivary or lacrimal gland, CNS, Medulloblastoma, Ependymoma, Glioma, Astrocytoma, Orbit, including retinoblastoma, Retinoblastoma, Axial skeleton or close proximity to axial skeleton, including bone or soft tissue sarcoma Ewing Sarcoma, Rhabdomyosarcoma, Osteosarcoma of axial skeleton, Craniopharyngioma, Intracranial germ cell tumour, Neuroblastoma, or Nephroblastoma


Study details

There are no clinical interventions required for participants enrolled onto the registry. All enrolled participants will receive treatment, and follow-up care as pre-determined by their treating clinician, in accordance with the standard of care at the treating institution. All treatment interventions that participants receive, and all outcomes will be recorded on the registry database from the patient medical record.

It is hoped that the development of this registry will assist in describing the long-term effects and disease control outcomes for patients having radiotherapy as part of their cancer treatment.
