This study sought to determine whether an autoimmune background could identify patients with HER2-positive early breast cancer (EBC) who derive differential benefit from primary adjuvant trastuzumab-based therapy.
Newly diagnosed breast cancer patients greatly overestimate their risk of developing contralateral breast cancer (CBC). Better understanding of patient conceptions of risk would facilitate doctor-patient communication and surgical decision making. In this mixed methods study, we prospectively examined breast cancer patients' perceived risk of future cancer and the reported factors that drove their risk perceptions.
Advanced breast cancer is characterized by many physical manifestations with the potential to undermine the quality of life (most related to the cancer and some to treatments), as well as substantial impact on psychosocial well-being. Patients with advanced breast cancer and their families have complex needs that have to be addressed in order to minimize severe distress and deterioration in the quality of life of patients and their family members. This task requires the full engagement of an interdisciplina...
Breast cancer is the most common malignant disease among older women, and the number of new older patients per year is increasing year by year. Radiotherapy has been confirmed as an important treatment after breast conservation for the reduction of local recurrence and mortality for all patients, including node-positive cases. However, there are fewer clinical trials evaluating the toxicity and benefits of radiotherapy for older patients. Whether radiotherapy can provide substantial benefit for older patien...
Standard of care in breast cancer management is well-defined. However, some gray zones still exist, in particular adjuvant radiotherapy indications in case of pN1mi breast cancer. Here we propose to define their prognosis, to underpin the benefit of adjuvant treatments in such patients' management and to define lymphedema risk, which is the most common late side effect of locoregional treatments.
Introduction Germline BRCA mutations (gBRCAm) are diagnosed in approximately 5% of unselected breast cancer patients. Olaparib is a new treatment option for patients with a gBRCAm who have metastatic HER2-negative breast cancer. Areas Covered Olaparib is an oral poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase inhibitor that has been shown in phase I-III clinical trials to have single-agent efficacy in breast cancer patients with gBRCAm. The recent phase III OlympiAD study demonstrated a statistically significant progression f...
Predictors of prolonged benefit from palbociclib plus fulvestrant in women with endocrine-resistant hormone receptor-positive/human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative metastatic breast cancer in PALOMA-3.
The addition of palbociclib to fulvestrant improved clinical outcomes over placebo-fulvestrant in endocrine-pretreated metastatic breast cancer (MBC) patients in PALOMA-3. Here, we examined factors predictive of long-term benefit.
The Breast Cancer Test (BCT) score has been validated for its ability to predict the risk of distant metastasis in hormone receptor-positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative early breast cancer. This study aimed to examine the value of the BCT score for predicting the benefit of adjuvant chemotherapy for Korean women with hormone receptor-positive, HER2-negative, lymph node-negative breast cancer. The study included 346 patients treated with either hormone therapy alone (n = 203) or...
The age at which women present with breast cancer varies widely among nations, and breast cancer may behave differently in younger women. Differences in clinicopathological characteristics based on age have not been well characterized in Pakistani patients with breast cancer.
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 cancer and is an important component of health care in Taiwan. However, the TCM utilization patterns and it's efficacy in breast cancer patients is unknown.
Breast conservation therapy (BCT) is standard for T1-T2 tumors, but early trials excluded breast cancers > 5 cm. This study was performed to assess patterns and outcomes of BCT for T3 tumors.
Anthracyclines have been a mainstay of breast cancer therapy for decades, with strong evidence demonstrating their impact on breast cancer survival. However, concerns regarding rare but serious long-term toxicities including cardiotoxicity and hematologic malignancies have driven interest in alternative adjuvant therapy options with more favorable toxicity profiles. This article provides an update of data that help inform clinicians of the role anthracyclines should play in adjuvant breast cancer therapy. T...
We investigated use of mastectomy as treatment for early breast cancer in the US and applied the resulting information to estimate the minimum and maximum rates at which mastectomy could plausibly be undergone by patients with overdiagnosed breast cancer. Little is currently known about overtreatments undergone by overdiagnosed patients.
Postmastectomy radiotherapy (PMRT) showed heterogeneous effects on survival outcome of patients with T1-2N1 breast cancer. A reliable model to estimate individuals' risk of locoregional recurrence (LRR) and the potential benefit derived from PMRT is in need.
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is the second most common cause of death in hospitalized patients with cancer, and cancer treatments may exacerbate VTE risk. Patients with hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer usually receive adjuvant endocrine therapy for 5 years or longer. The aim of this study is to examine VTE risk following long-term use of aromatase inhibitor (AI) compared with tamoxifen use among breast cancer survivors.
The Smad7 protein is negative regulator of the TGF-β signaling pathway, which is upregulated in patients with breast cancer. miRNAs regulate proteins expressions by arresting or degrading the mRNAs. The purpose of this work is to identify a miRNAs profile that regulates the expression of the mRNA coding for Smad7 in breast cancer using the data from patients with breast cancer obtained from the Cancer Genome Atlas Project.
Breast cancer and its surgical treatment and chemotherapy have great impact on the immune system. This study aimed to monitor the various T cells in breast cancer patients and evaluate the immune functions.
To assess the incidence and clinical significance of discrepancy in subspecialty interpretation of outside breast imaging examinations for newly diagnosed breast cancer patients presenting to a tertiary cancer center.
MicroRNAs are involved in diverse biological processes and their dysregulation is a common event in various diseases including breast cancer. Breast cancer is a major threat to women's health. This study was designed to examine the expression levels of miR-9 and miR-34a in breast tumor tissue samples and plasma of breast cancer patients, compare their expression pattern between tissue samples and plasma samples of patients and analyze their relationship with tumor clinical features. Also, the potential of t...
The post-neoadjuvant setting in early breast cancer represents an attractive scenario for adjuvant clinical trials, offering the opportunity to test new drugs or combinations in high-risk patients who did not achieve pathologic complete response after primary treatment. No standard therapies are routinely proposed to patients with residual disease after neoadjuvant chemotherapy and few trials have explored this setting. To date, only one randomized phase III study showed the benefit of additional capecitabi...
Although current evidence suggests potential antitumor activity of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), there is no population-based evidence of an association between PPI use and subsequent breast cancer risks. We used an observational case-control study to examine the association between prior PPI use and breast cancer occurrence. Additional analysis examined dose-response and age-stratified associations of PPIs with breast cancer. This study used data from the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Dataset....
In the American College of Surgeons Oncology Group (ACOSOG) Z0011 trial, patients with 1 or 2 tumour-involved sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) gained no benefit from completion axillary lymph dissection (cALND). We examined implementation of evidence from this trial into routine clinical management.
Invasive lobular carcinomas (ILCs) represent approximately 10% of all breast cancers. Despite this high frequency, benefit of adjuvant chemotherapy (CT) is still unclear.
Benefit of longer course of taxane-anthracycline-based adjuvant chemotherapy is yet to be identified.
The use of contralateral prophylactic mastectomy (CPM) is increasing among breast cancer patients who are at average or "sporadic" risk for contralateral breast cancer. Because CPM provides no survival benefit for these patients, it is not medically recommended for them. Decision support aids may facilitate more informed, higher quality CPM decision. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of B-Sure, an online decision support aid to facilitate informed decisions regardin...
