RATIONALE: Gathering information about patients with breast cancer and their families may help the study of breast cancer in the future. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is gathering information about patients with breast cancer and their families.
The purpose of the study is to study the epidemic features and diagnosis of female breast cancer, especially the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.The disease-free survival (DFS) and the total survival time(OS) of the breast cancer patients will also be studied.
The purpose of this study is to collect a blood sample from patients with breast disease (cases) and from individuals without breast cancer (controls)that may be used for research purposes. These blood samples will be used by researchers at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center who study the causes of breast cancer, as well as more effective ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat breast cancer.
To see if performing breast MRI before a lumpectomy will help the surgeon successfully remove the entire cancer with normal tissue margins in a single operation thereby reducing the need for additional surgical procedures. The study will also measure how well MRI can find unsuspected cancers in the same breast as the known cancer; how well MRI will find unsuspected cancers in the opposite breast; how often MRI will generate false positive MRI findings; whether routinely incorpo...
Breast cancer is the most common female malignancy in the world, and the leading cause of cancer-associated mortalities among women. Hormone receptors (HR) including ER and PR are the main prognostic factor for breast cancer patients. Breast cancer subtype was defined by ER, PR, HER2 and Ki67 status since the definition of intrinsic subtypes for breast cancer. Breast cancer which ER are positive have less aggressive and better long-term prognoses than other breast cancer subtyp...
RATIONALE: Studying mammograms for breast density changes over time may help doctors predict breast cancer risk. PURPOSE: This natural history study is looking at changes in breast density and gathering health information over time to assess breast cancer risk in women with breast cancer and in healthy women.
RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood from patients with metastatic breast cancer in the laboratory may help doctors identify biomarkers related to breast cancer and learn more about how breast cancer begins and spreads in the body. PURPOSE: This research study is looking at a new way of identifying circulating breast cancer cells in women with metastatic breast cancer.
The molecular breast imaging (MBI) is a potential modality to screen breast cancer. In this study, we compare and evaluate the recall rate/diagnostic efficiency of MBI, mammography and breast sonography, and aim to determine best ways of breast cancer screening.
Hormone receptor positive breast cancer is the most common type of breast cancer, comprising 70-80% of all breast cancers. Endocrine therapy is the main type of initial treatment for patients with your type of breast cancer. Endocrine therapy is treatment that tries to remove, or block certain hormones from binding to the cancer cells and thus slow or stop the growth of cancer. Although most patients with your type of breast cancer respond initially to endocrine therapies, it ...
Breast cancer (BC) ranks second among all the types of cancer and is equally common in developing as well as developed countries. Breast cancer is most common type of cancer worldwide and its diagnosis as well as early treatment is associated with distress. The aim of this study is to explore the feasibility of integrating a 'Moving on After Breast Cancer (ABC)' manual developed by service user (Dr A Saleem) within a Positive Health Programme (PHP) for Pakistani women who are b...
This study aims to evaluate if a light based technique, called Transillumination Breast Spectroscopy (TIBS), can be used to construct a non-invasive breast cancer risk predictor which provides a better odds ratio than mammographic parenchymal density.
The purpose of this study is to investigate and analyse genomic profiles in patient with breast cancer who failed standard treatment, refractory and young breast cancer.
The proposed study is being done to learn more about a particular dose of radiation treatment for breast cancer that is completed in a shorter amount of time than what has traditionally been used to treat breast cancer. Subjects are being asked to be in this research study because they have already had surgery for breast cancer and some cancer cells were found in their lymph nodes that drain the breast tissue.
When breast MRI is used to determine the extent of local disease, the management changes, resulting in improved outcomes. Studies have indicated that breast MRI plus mammography is better for detecting tumors. surgeons are now utilizing breast MRI to determine the extent of disease in women diagnosed with breast cancer. It has not been established how management of breast cancer patients has been affected by the use of breast MRI or how that management has affected the outcome ...
Breast cancer (BC) is the most common cancer in women worldwide, and is the leading cause of death from cancer among women globally. Mammography is the standard method for early detection of BC in many countries, with over 1.3 million annually new diagnosed cases.In Egypt, breast cancer is the most common cancer in females accounting for 38.8% of all female cancers.
RATIONALE: Changing the genes in laboratory mice to create a living model of human breast cancer may help doctors learn more about breast cancer. PURPOSE: This research study is developing mouse models of breast cancer using tissue samples that were previously collected from women with breast cancer.
Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer and the leading cause of cancer death among females world wide. breast cancer alone accounts for 25% of all cancer cases and 15% of all cancer deaths among females.
This protocol will evaluate a new non-invasive infrared imaging system as an adjunctive tool for breast cancer detection that has been approved by the FDA. The technology and device have been developed by Infrared Sciences Corp. and has undergone more than 3 years of testing prior. The subject device's utility will be investigated with regard to its sensitivity toward breast cancer, however it records temperature data and other physiological parameters of the breast, and comp...
Obesity has been linked to an increased risk of developing a number of malignancies, including postmenopausal breast cancer. One of the established risk factors for breast cancer development in post-menopausal women is obesity which has further been linked to breast cancer recurrence and poorer survival in pre- and post-menopausal breast cancer.
RATIONALE: Gathering information about the frequency and intensity of hot flashes in patients with breast cancer and in patients who have a high risk of developing breast cancer may help doctors learn more about menopausal symptoms. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is looking at menopausal symptoms in women with breast cancer or at high risk of breast cancer who received treatment on another clinical trial.
There is laboratory evidence that cholesterol lowering medications (statins) inhibit the growth of breast cancer cells. Clinical studies are controversial but some show that women taking statins are less likely to get breast cancer. This ongoing randomized trial compares one-year of atorvastatin (Lipitor™) or placebo for lowering mammography-defined breast density and other surrogate markers associated with breast cancer risk.
The aim of the BRAGATSTON study is to provide a low cost tool for measuring CAC in breast cancer patients, thereby identifying patients at increased risk of CVD. Breast cancer patients and doctors can act upon this, by adapting the treatment and/or by adopting cardioprotective interventions. Hereby, the burden of CVD in breast cancer survivors can be reduced and better overall survival rates can be achieved.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the ability of MRI to select patients for conservative treatment of breast cancer. Participants: female, over 18 years with breast cancer, stages I, II and III candidates for conservative surgery will be randomly randomized to do MRI or not according mammary density.
The purpose of this study is to determine if SKI-606 is effective in the treatment of advanced or metastatic breast cancer. Patients must have current Stage IIIB, IIIC or IV breast cancer and have progressed after 1 to 3 prior chemotherapy regimens.
Sometimes women have more than one breast cancer in the same breast at the same time. These women are usually offered a mastectomy (removal of that breast) and breast reconstruction. It may be possible to treat these patients by removing each cancer using breast-saving surgery (lumpectomies), used for women with only one breast cancer. Databases show that women who had lumpectomies did well, but they may have been healthier before the surgery than those who had a mastectomy. Th...
