Cancer cells can alter physiological mechanisms within bone resulting in high bone turnover, and consequently in skeletal-related events (SREs), causing severe morbidity in affected patients. The goals of bone targeted therapy, as bisphosphonates and denosumab, are the reduction of incidence and the delay in occurrence of the SREs, to improve quality of(More)
Angiogenesis plays an essential role in the growth and progression of breast cancer. This observational single center study evaluated the efficacy and safety of a new weekly schedule of bevacizumab/paclitaxel combination in the first-line treatment of unselected, HER2-negative, metastatic breast cancer (MBC) patients, in a real-life setting. Thirty-five(More)
BACKGROUND Anthracyclines and taxanes are effective drugs in breast cancer (BC), but their toxicity profiles limit their use in combination. A dose-finding study was performed to determine maximum tolerated doses (MTDs) of nonpegylated liposomal doxorubicin (TLC-D99) and docetaxel (DTX) as a dose-dense schedule, to maintain dose intensity, and to limit(More)
BACKGROUND To quantify the effect of traditional prognostic factors [nodal status, estrogen-receptor (ER), progesterone-receptor (PR), human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)] on long-term outcome of patients with early breast cancer (EBC), treated in clinical practice over a period of about twenty years. RESULTS 1198 consecutive patients were(More)
