To evaluate acute toxicity and cosmetic outcomes of hypofractionated simultaneous integrated boost (SIB) as adjuvant treatment after breast-conserving surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy and to review the association of chemotherapy and short fractionation with boost.

Our study evaluated skin and subcutaneous toxicity analyzing its correlation with patient- and treatment-related factors in a large mono-institutional series of women with early stage breast cancer tr...
Cardiovascular disease is the main concern of breast cancer survivors who received doxorubicin treatment. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) provides as a complementary therapy to patients with breast...
Randomized controlled study comparing simultaneous modulated accelerated radiotherapy versus simultaneous integrated boost intensity modulated radiotherapy in the treatment of locally advanced head and neck cancer.
Comparison of two fractionation schedules of intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) for locally advanced head and neck cancer - simultaneous integrated boost (SIB-IMRT) and simultaneous modulated acc...
A combination of hydroxytyrosol, omega-3 fatty acids and curcumin improves pain and inflammation among early stage breast cancer patients receiving adjuvant hormonal therapy: results of a pilot study.
Breast cancer patients receiving hormonal therapies face risks of relapse, increased rates of cardiovascular events, and toxicities of therapy such as aromatase inhibitor (AI)-associated musculoskelet...
Patients with breast cancer with pathological stage pT and at least one risk factor for local recurrence such as N1 disease, lymphovascular invasion, extensive intraductal component, close margins, no...
Hypofractionation with simultaneous integrated boost has been investigated in a few trials and appears to be safe and feasible. Investigators initiated this multicenter two-armed phase II...
A Phase III trial of accelerated whole breast irradiation with hypofractionation plus concurrent boost versus standard whole breast irradiation plus sequential boost for early-stage breast...
In summary, breast conserving therapy (BCT) is an effective, save and widely used treatment technique for early breast cancer. Radiotherapy has shown to give better local control and survi...
This is a two arm randomized study for patients who are undergoing radiotherapy following breast conservation surgery for breast cancer. Local recurrence of breast cancer will be compared ...
The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy and toxicities of hypofractionation radiotherapy with conventional fractionation radiotherapy in breast cancer patients treated with ma...
Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).
Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.
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.
The phosphoprotein encoded by the BRCA1 gene (GENE, BRCA1). In normal cells the BRCA1 protein is localized in the nucleus, whereas in the majority of breast cancer cell lines and in malignant pleural effusions from breast cancer patients, it is localized mainly in the cytoplasm. (Science 1995;270(5237):713,789-91)
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)
