Trastuzumab is considered a cornerstone in the treatment of human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER2)-positive breast cancer. Cardiac toxicity is an important side effect of treatment and can limit the use of this drug known to act synergistically with cardiotoxicity from anthracyclines. A retrospective study was performed on breast cancer patients(More)
This retrospective study evaluated the impact of intermediate Recurrence Score(®) results on adjuvant treatment decisions in estrogen receptor-positive (ER+) early invasive breast cancer, comparing treatment recommendations pre-testing with actual treatments received post-testing. Of the 111 patients included in the analysis, 78 (70.3%) had hormonal therapy(More)
BACKGROUND RET (rearranged during transfection) fusions have been reported in 1% to 2% of lung adenocarcinoma (LADC) cases. In contrast, KIF5B-RET and CCDC6-RET fusion genes have been identified in 70% to 90% and 10% to 25% of tumors, respectively. The natural history and management of RET-rearranged LADC are still being delineated. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
Single-dose pegfilgrastim is commonly used for the prophylaxis of neutropenia in patients receiving myelotoxic chemotherapy. We report a case of a 69-year-old man who was treated with chemotherapy for small-cell lung cancer and mistakenly self-administered a 36 mg overdose of pegfilgrastim, a sixfold increase over the scheduled dose.
BACKGROUND Patients with lung cancer are at increased risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE), particularly those receiving chemotherapy. It is estimated that 8% to 15% of patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) experience a VTE in the course of their disease. The incidence in patients with specific molecular subtypes of NSCLC is unknown. We(More)
Oxaliplatin is a common chemotherapy drug, used mainly for colon and gastric cancer. Most common side effects are peripheral sensory neuropathy, hematological toxicity, and allergic reactions. A less common side effect is pulmonary toxicity, characterized mainly by interstitial pneumonitis. The incidence of this side effect is unknown, but the toxicity can(More)
Angiosarcoma of the breast represents 1 % of all soft tissue breast tumors. With breast-conserving therapy (BCT) as standard in the last three decades, a new type of angiosarcoma has been reported: post-irradiation angiosarcoma (PIAS). A recent study based on the SEER database found an absolute risk for PIAS of seven per 100,000 person-years for BCT(More)
