Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Recurrent Breast Cancer

RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays and other types of radiation to kill tumor cells. It is not yet known whether a single dose of radiation therapy is more effective than...

Eliminating Breast Cancer Surgery in Exceptional Responders With Neoadjuvant Therapy

The goal of this clinical research study is to learn how often breast cancer recurs (returns after treatment) in the breast in patients who have been treated with chemotherapy and have had...

Hypofractionated Radiation Therapy in Preventing Recurrence in Patients With Breast Cancer After Surgery

This randomized phase II trial studies how well hypofractionated radiation therapy works in preventing the return of tumor cells in breast cancer patients following surgery. Hypofractionat...

Proton Beam Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Breast Cancer After Surgery

This randomized phase II trial studies how well proton beam radiation therapy works in treating patients with breast cancer after surgery. Radiation therapy uses high energy protons to kil...

Hypofractionated Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Stage 0-IIB Breast Cancer

This phase II trial studies how well hypofractionated radiation therapy works in treating patients with stage 0-IIB breast cancer. Hypofractionated radiation therapy delivers higher doses ...

Influence of the subtype on local recurrence risk of breast cancer with or without radiation therapy.

To investigate if intrinsic subtypes of breast cancer predict different risks of ipsilateral breast tumor recurrence (IBTR) following breast-conserving surgery (BCS) with and without postoperative rad...

Mebendazole potentiates radiation therapy in triple-negative breast cancer.

The lack of a molecular target in triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) makes it one of the most challenging breast cancers to treat. Radiation therapy (RT) is an important treatment modality for manag...

Risk of cardiac disease after adjuvant radiation therapy among breast cancer survivors.

Adjuvant radiation therapy (RT) for breast cancer is associated with heart disease, although the impact of patient-specific factors on the interaction between cardiac risk and RT is not well-studied i...

Synergistic Activity of Paclitaxel, Sorafenib, and Radiation Therapy in advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma and Breast Cancer.

Advanced cancer has been shown to be associated with a higher percentage of epigenetic changes than with genetic mutations. Preclinical models have shown that the combination of paclitaxel, sorafenib,...

Modalities and advantages of image guided radiation therapy of breast cancer in adjuvant setting.

In adjuvant setting, breast cancer radiotherapy volumes include whole mammary gland or chest wall, and when indicated, nodal area such as axilla, supraclavicular, and internal mammary chain. An accura...

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).

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

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)
