GRAIL is using high-intensity sequencing of circulating cell-free nucleic acids (cfNAs) to develop blood tests to detect cancer early. The purpose of this study is to train and validate an assay to detect invasive breast cancer in patients undergoing mammography.
Detection of early stage cancer may be possible through analysis of circulating cell-free nucleic acids (cfNAs) shed into the blood by tumors. GRAIL is using high-intensity sequencing (based on broad genomic coverage and deep sequencing) of cfNAs, combined with machine learning, to develop blood tests to detect cancer early. The purpose of this prospective, multi-center, observational cohort study is to train and validate an assay for the early detection of breast cancer. The study will collect blood samples from participants within 28 days of their screening mammogram. For participants who receive a cancer diagnosis during the study, tissue samples will be collected.

This phase II trial is studying how well cryoablation therapy works in treating patients with invasive ductal breast cancer. Cryoablation kills tumor cells by freezing them. This may be an...
The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility of a short term administration of a targeted therapy (i.e., anastrozole) in women with newly diagnosed early invasive or non invas...
This is a 2 Phase study. In the first phase of the study, patients with palpable invasive breast cancer underwent pre-operative supine MRI and optical scanning in the surgical position. In...
A central challenge in the fight against breast cancer is how to detect disease in a noninvasive manner before it is detectable by imaging methods. Although inroads have been made with mor...
RATIONALE: Questionnaires that assess symptoms caused by cancer and cancer therapy may help improve the ability to plan treatment for patients with invasive cancer to help them live longer...
Metaplastic breast cancer (MpBC) is a rare but aggressive type of breast cancer accounting for 0.25-1% of all diagnosed invasive breast cancers. Morphologically, it is characterized by differentiation...
CD133/ prominin 1 is a cancer stem cell marker associated with cancer progression and patient outcome in a variety of solid tumours, but its role in invasive breast cancer (BC) remains obscure. The cu...
To identify the ultrasound and clinical features related to the different molecular subtypes of invasive breast cancer.
To correlate the tumor-stromal ratio (TSR) of invasive breast cancer and MRI findings.
Invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) is a histological subtype of breast cancer that is predominantly estrogen receptor alpha (ER)-positive (+) and is thus treated with endocrine therapies. Herein, we sou...
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)
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.
A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
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.
DNA sequencing is the process of determining the precise order of nucleotides within a DNA molecule. During DNA sequencing, the bases of a small fragment of DNA are sequentially identified from signals emitted as each fragment is re-synthesized from a ...
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
