The present study will assess real-world clinical outcomes and adverse events from treatment with endocrine therapy combined with CDKi in patients with HR-positive, HER2-negative advanced breast cancer.
Patients This will be a retrospective analysis of patients with histologically confirmed HR-positive, HER2-negative advanced (recurrent or metastatic) breast cancer. The investigators will use data from patients treated at Hellenic Cooperative Oncology Group (HeCOG)-affiliated departments of oncology. Eligible patients will be of 18 years or older, women of any menopausal status with HR-positive/HER2-negative advanced breast cancer who have received treatment with CDKi in combination with endocrine therapy for their advanced breast cancer. Treatment combinations of CDKi with any endocrine therapy will be accepted. Patients will be included in the analysis if they heve received at least two months of treatment with a CDKi. Patient clinical data will be obtained from their medical records. Toxicity data will be recorded from the clinicians' documentations during scheduled patient clinical visits.
Statistical analysis The primary endpoint of the study will be progression-free survival (PFS), defined as the time from treatment initiation to either the first documented disease progression or death from any cause. Secondary endpoint will be overall survival (OS), defined as the time from treatment initiation to patient death or last contact. Patients alive will be censored at the date of last contact. Adverse events will be graded based on Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE, version 4.0). Survival curves will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method and compared across groups with the log-rank test. The associations between the clinicopathological factors to be examined and the mortality rate will be evaluated with hazard ratios estimated with Cox proportional hazards model. The statistical analyses will be completed using the SAS software (SAS for Windows, version 9.3, SAS Institute Inc., Cary, NC).

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.
Endocrine disorders are grouped into two categories: hormone imbalance - when a gland produces too much or too little of an endocrine hormone development of lesions (such as nodules or tumors) in the endocrine system, which may or may not affect...
