Summary of "Neoadjuvant Endocrine Therapy in Breast Cancer Upregulates the Cytotoxic Drug Pump ABCG2/BCRP, and May Lead to Resistance to Subsequent Chemotherapy."

Neoadjuvant treatments for primary breast cancer are becoming more common; however, little is known about how these impact on response to subsequent adjuvant therapies. Conveniently, neoadjuvant therapy provides opportunities to consider this question, by studying therapy-induced expression changes using comparisons between pre- and posttreatment samples. These data are relatively lacking in the context of neoadjuvant endocrine therapy, as opposed to the more common neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Here, we investigate the relevance of expression of the xenobiotic transporter ABCG2/BCRP, a gene/protein associated with chemoresistance, in the context of neoadjuvant endocrine therapy and particularly with reference to subsequent chemotherapy treatment.

Impact of combining the progesterone receptor and preoperative endocrine prognostic index (PEPI) as a prognostic factor after neoadjuvant endocrine therapy using aromatase inhibitors in postmenopausal ER positive and HER2 negative breast cancer.

The preoperative endocrine prognostic index (PEPI) predicts survival after neoadjuvant endocrine therapy (NAE) using aromatase inhibitors (AIs) for women with postmenopausal estrogen receptor (ER)-pos...

Adherence to adjuvant endocrine therapy in postmenopausal breast cancer patients: A 5-year prospective study.

Adjuvant endocrine therapy (ET) in breast cancer reduces recurrence risk and increases overall survival. The aim of the study was to quantify non-adherence and discontinuation to ET in postmenopausal ...

The impact of state parity laws on copayments for and adherence to oral endocrine therapy for breast cancer.

Adherence to endocrine therapy for breast cancer is often inadequate, in part because of out-of-pocket costs for medication. Numerous states have enacted parity laws to limit patient cost-sharing for ...

Evolution in sites of recurrence over time in breast cancer patients treated with adjuvant endocrine therapy.

Hormone receptor positive breast cancer is characterized by a prolonged risk of recurrence. Extended adjuvant endocrine therapy improves disease-free survival (DFS), but no effect on overall survival ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).

Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.

Drug therapy given to augment or stimulate some other form of treatment such as surgery or radiation therapy. Adjuvant chemotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.

A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)
