An International Phase 4 Field Study to Analyse the Psychometric Properties of the Updated Module on Assessing Quality of Life of Patients With Breast Cancer (EORTC QLQ-BR23 Update- EORTC QLQ BR45)

Summary

Females breast cancer is still the most frequent type of cancer in Europe with 21 per 100,000 women .The EORTC QLQ-BR23 was one of the first modules developed to be used in conjunction with the core questionnaire EORTC QLQ-C30 and was published in 1996. Since the beginning of the work on the EORTC QLQ-BR23 some 20 years ago, much knowledge has been gathered about the epidemiology of breast cancer, and major advances have been made with regard to diagnostic and therapeutic options. Therefore, the EORTC QLG decided to update the BC23. A phase 1 to 3 module development project has been completed. This resulted in a 45 item module, retaining 23 of the original items and adding 22 new items, particularly tapping into the side effects of new systemic and local therapies.

The aim of the Phase 4 study is to test the scale structure, reliability, responsiveness to change, and validity of the EORTC QLQ-BC45 in conjunction with the EORTC QLQ- C30 in patients diagnosed with breast cancer. Participants will be enrolled in three groups according to their disease stage (1. localized disease or locally advanced disease, 2. metastatic disease, 3. follow up). Various combinations of therapies are permissible, resulting in a total of 17 subgroups.

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).

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.

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.
