Summary of "Correlation of UGT2B7 Polymorphism with Cardiotoxicity in Breast Cancer Patients Undergoing Epirubicin/Cyclophosphamide-Docetaxel Adjuvant Chemotherapy."

The present study aimed to investigate correlations between uridine glucuronosyltransferase 2B7 (UGT2B7) -161 single nucleotide polymorphism C to T (C>T) and the occurrence of cardiotoxicity in Chinese breast cancer (BC) patients undergoing epirubicin/cyclophosphamide-docetaxel (EC-D) adjuvant chemotherapy.

Correlation of circulating pro-angiogenic miRNAs with cardiotoxicity induced by epirubicin/cyclophosphamide followed by docetaxel in patients with breast cancer.

This study aimed to evaluate predictive value of 14 pro-angiogenic miRNAs for cardiotoxicity induced by epirubicin/cyclophosphamide follow by docetaxel (EC-D) in breast cancer (BC) patients.

RS7435335 located in the UGT2B7 gene may be a possible genetic marker for the clinical response and prognosis of breast cancer patients receiving neoadjuvant chemotherapy.

To evaluate the predictive efficacy and prognostic value of rs7435335 located in the UGT2B7 gene as a genetic marker in breast cancer patients receiving neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC).

Comparative efficacy of adjuvant trastuzumab-containing chemotherapies for patients with early HER2-positive primary breast cancer: a network meta-analysis.

Trastuzumab (H) with chemotherapy benefits patients with HER2+ breast cancer (BC); however, we lack head-to-head pairwise assessment of survival or cardiotoxicity for specific combinations. We sought ...

Effects of CYP3A5 and UGT2B7 variants on steady-state carbamazepine concentrations in Chinese epileptic patients.

Carbamazepine (CBZ) is a widely used antiepileptic drug with large interindividual variability in serum concentrations. Previous studies found that CYP3A5*3 (rs776746), UGT2B7*2 (802C>T), and UGT2B7*3...

Interaction between glutathione S-transferase M1-null/present polymorphism and adjuvant chemotherapy influences the survival of breast cancer.

Glutathione S-transferase M (GSTM) family is concerned with oxidative stress, which is associated with breast carcinogenesis and chemotherapy response. The null polymorphism of GSTM1 gene results in a...

Cardiac Magnetic Resonance for Early Detection of Chemotherapy or Radiation Therapy Induced Cardiotoxicity in Breast Cancer (CareBest)

Chemotherapy or radiation therapy-induced cardiotoxicity are well-recognized side effects in patients with cancer. The clinical significance of cardiotoxicity is growing with increasing ca...

MyoStrain CMR for the Detection of Cardiotoxicity

The Prefect Pilot Study evaluates the use of the EC approved MyoStrain SENC CMR Imaging System to detect cardiotoxicity from drugs used to treat cancer (e.g. Breast Cancer and Lymphomas).

The Cardio-Oncology Breast Cancer Study

The main objective of this randomized controlled trial is to test the association between standard cardiac risk factors, biomarkers and parameters of echocardiography, electrocardiography,...

Cardiotoxicity of Adjuvant Trastuzumab

Trastuzumab (Herceptin®) increases the chances of cure in patients with Her-2 overexpressing early breast cancer. Unfortunately, both the chemotherapy drugs used in this setting (anthracy...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)
