Use of chemotherapy plus a monoclonal antibody against HER2 for metastatic breast cancer that overexpresses HER2.
TLDR
The addition of trastuzumab to chemotherapy was associated with a longer time to disease progression, a higher rate of objective response, a longer duration of response, and a lower rate of death at 1 year.
Randomized trial of dose-dense versus conventionally scheduled and sequential versus concurrent combination chemotherapy as postoperative adjuvant treatment of node-positive primary breast cancer:
TLDR
Dose density improves clinical outcomes significantly, despite the lower than expected number of events at this time, and Sequential chemotherapy is as effective as concurrent chemotherapy.
Randomized trial of letrozole following tamoxifen as extended adjuvant therapy in receptor-positive breast cancer: updated findings from NCIC CTG MA.17.
TLDR
Letrozole after tamoxifen is well-tolerated and improves both disease- free and distant disease-free survival but not overall survival, except in node-positive patients.
Exogenous Expression of N-Cadherin in Breast Cancer Cells Induces Cell Migration, Invasion, and Metastasis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that N-cadherin promotes motility, invasion, and metastasis even in the presence of the normally suppressive E-c adhesion molecules, and the increase in their adherence to endothelium may improve their ability to enter and exit the vasculature, two properties that may be responsible for metastasis of N- cadher in–expressing cells.
Improved outcomes from adding sequential Paclitaxel but not from escalating Doxorubicin dose in an adjuvant chemotherapy regimen for patients with node-positive primary breast cancer.
TLDR
The addition of four cycles of paclitaxel after the completion of a standard course of CA improves the disease-free and overall survival of patients with early breast cancer.
The Effect of Raloxifene on Risk of Breast Cancer in Postmenopausal Women: Results From the MORE Randomized Trial
TLDR
Tamoxifen citrate, which inhibits the action of estrogen on breast tissue, improves disease-free survival among women who have estrogen receptor, and raloxifene hydrochloride is a selective estrogen receptor modulator that has antiestrogenic effects on breast and endometrial tissue and estrogenIC effects on bone, lipid metabolism, and blood clotting.
A Randomized Trial of Letrozole in Postmenopausal Women after Five Years of Tamoxifen Therapy for Early-Stage Breast Cancer
TLDR
As compared with placebo, letrozole therapy after the completion of standard tamoxifen treatment significantly improves disease-free survival.
American Society of Clinical Oncology 2007 Update of Recommendations for the Use of Tumor Markers in Breast Cancer.
TLDR
Thirteen categories of breast tumor markers were considered, six of which were new for the guideline, and not all applications for these markers were supported, however.
American Society of Clinical Oncology 2007 update of recommendations for the use of tumor markers in breast cancer.
TLDR
Thirteen categories of breast tumor markers were considered, six of which were new for the guideline, and certain multiparameter gene expression assays not all applications for these markers were supported, however.
