Tw HER2 Positive Breast Cancer Productivity & Utility Study

2019-07-12 08:37:25 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Breast cancer ranks top 4 Taiwan mortality cause in 2016 and the incidence rate has been increasing. Since advances in screening and treatment over last decades, disease-free survival in HER2 positive breast cancer improved and relapse rates decrease as well. While health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and productivity benefit is not currently formally assessed by Taiwan Health Technology Agency (HTA) in Taiwan, the value of therapy in terms of a wider societal benefit is a critical factor which is increasingly being considered as part of the overall assessment of the value of a new medicine.

Sort of productivity study in cancer is lack of in Taiwan. Referenced Roche UK team published comprehensive productivity studies1 Taiwan Epidemiology Association wants to initiate study to understand holistic value in each stage of breast cancer and quantify the value of new drug to support HTA assessment.

The data will be collected through study, and adapt to cost-effectiveness model for future reimbursement submission.

Clinical Trials [5443 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

ATOP TRIAL: T-DM1 in HER2 Positive Breast Cancer

This research study is studying an investigational drug as a possible treatment for breast cancer that is positive for the protein Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2, also known as H...

Intrathecal Pertuzumab and Trastuzumab in Patients With New Untreated Asymptomatic or Low Symptomatic Brain Metastasis in HER2 Positive Breast Cancer

The purpose of this research study is to determine how well pertuzumab and trastuzumab works in treating breast cancer that has spread to the brain. Pertuzumab and trastuzumab are treatmen...

Randomized Trial of Neo-adjuvant Chemotherapy With or Without Metformin for HER2 Positive Operable Breast Cancer

The primary objective of this study is to determine the efficacy of metformin as a repurposed agent in human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) positive breast cancer when added to ...

To Reduce the Use of Chemotherapy in Elderly Patients With ER-positive and HER2-positive Breast Cancer (TOUCH)

This is a phase II open-label, multicentre, randomized trial. The study assesses the treatment of elderly patients with hormone receptor positive/HER2 positive early breast cancer with neo...

Niraparib in Combination With Trastuzumab in Metastatic HER2+ Breast Cancer

The human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) regulates cell growth and survival. Approximately 15-20% of all breast cancers are HER2-positive, which are an aggressive and fast-growi...

Elevated WBP2 expression in HER2-positive breast cancers correlates with sensitivity to trastuzumab-based neo-adjuvant therapy:A Retrospective and Multicentric Study.

Trastuzumab-based chemotherapy has shown remarkable clinical benefits for HER2-positive breast cancer patients. However, treatment regimens involving trastuzumab had little or no effect for a subset o...

Upregulation of pluripotent long noncoding RNA ES3 in HER2-positive breast cancer.

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer and estimates to be responsible for 20% of all cancer patients. Breast cancer has several subtypes including luminal A, luminal B, normal breast-like, b...

Gene Expression and miRNAs Profiling: Function and Regulation in Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2 (HER2)-Positive Breast Cancer.

Breast cancer is the second most common cause of cancer-related deaths among women worldwide. It is a heterogeneous disease with four major molecular subtypes. One of the subtypes, human epidermal gro...

Local-regional recurrence in women with small node-negative, HER2-positive breast cancer: results from a prospective multi-institutional study (the APT trial).

Women with HER2-positive breast cancer treated prior to effective anti-HER2 therapy have higher rates of local-regional recurrence (LRR) than those with HER2-negative disease. Effective systemic thera...

The FDA-Approved Breast Cancer HER2 Evaluation Kit (HercepTest; Dako) May Miss Some HER2-Positive Breast Cancers.

Accurate evaluation of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) in breast cancer is critical.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A humanized monoclonal antibody against the ERBB-2 RECEPTOR (HER2). As an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT, it is used to treat BREAST CANCER where HER2 is overexpressed.

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 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)

A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
