Salvage Therapy With Bevacizumab Plus Docetaxel and Cisplatin for Taiwanese Metastatic Breast Cancer

2014-08-27 03:17:32 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Bevacizumab is a monoclonal antibody currently used for the treatment of colorectal cancer. It works by preventing the formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis). The drug has been shown to inhibit vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) activity. Previous research showed positive findings in other solid tumors that had metastasized. In this study, the investigators are investigating the response of adding bevacizumab to conventional chemotherapy for metastatic breast cancer patients.

Description

Targeted chemotherapy has gradually become the mainstay of cancer treatment in present day. Targeted medications such as trastuzumab, bevacizumab and lapatinib have recently been more extensively adopted for many cancers, particularly breast cancer. Among these targeted medications, bevacizumab is a monoclonal antibody acting on vascular endothelial growth factor receptor and it works by preventing the formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis). Published articles indicated that monotherapy of bevacizumab on breast cancer showed only a 9-17% response rate, while combining with paclitaxel, the treatment outcome appeared to improve progression-free survival and the objective response rate. We are curious about the additive effect of bevacizumab on conventional chemotherapy, the toxicities induced when combined target therapy with conventional chemotherapy and the duration of remission that these treatment could achieve. In this study, we utilized bevacizumab, docetaxel plus cisplatin for metastatic breast cancer patients and furthermore, we are evaluated the treatment response, toxicities and duration of remission as our main goals.

Association of Allelic Interaction of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms of Influx and Efflux Transporters Genes With Nonhematologic Adverse Events of Docetaxel in Breast Cancer Patients.

Nonhematologic adverse events (AEs) of docetaxel constitute an extra burden in the treatment of cancer patients and necessitate either a dose reduction or an outright switch of docetaxel for other reg...

Tumor progression and metastatic dissemination in ovarian cancer after dose-dense or conventional paclitaxel and cisplatin plus bevacizumab.

The efficacy of therapeutic regimens incorporating weekly or every-3-weeks paclitaxel (PTX) for ovarian cancer is debated. We investigated the addition of bevacizumab in regimens of chemotherapy with ...

We determined if intermittent first-line treatment with paclitaxel plus bevacizumab was not inferior to continuous treatment in patients with HER2-negative, advanced breast cancer.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).

An estrogen responsive cell line derived from a patient with metastatic human breast ADENOCARCINOMA (at the Michigan Cancer Foundation.)

A synthetic long-acting agonist of GONADOTROPIN-RELEASING HORMONE. Goserelin is used in treatments of malignant NEOPLASMS of the prostate, uterine fibromas, and metastatic breast cancer.

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)
