BACKGROUND Triple negative breast cancer is associated with aggressive behavior and high risk of local and regional failure. Aggressive surgical intervention is considered suitable. This makes role of breast conserving therapy (BCT) debatable in these patients. The objective of this study was to compare outcome of BCT for triple negative versus non-triple(More)

The disease is chemosensitive and there is increasing interest in the use of chemotherapy with radiation in this group of patients. Our aim was to determine survival in patients with locally advanced nasal and paranasal sinus tumors treated with neoadjuvant(More)
