Background. The National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP) Protocol B-06, a clinical trial sponsored by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), has provided evidence of the value of lumpectomy and breast irradiation for treating women with breast cancer in an early stage. Publicity generated by the discovery that the study included fraudulent data on patients enrolled by St. Luc Hospital in Montreal aroused concern about the overall accuracy of the data and conclusions. To address…

REANALYSIS AND RESULTS AFTER 12 YEARS OF FOLLOW-UP IN A RANDOMIZED CLINICAL TRIAL COMPARING TOTAL MASTECTOMY WITH LUMPECTOMY WITH OR WITHOUT IRRADIATION IN THE TREATMENT OF BREAST CANCER
TLDR
The findings continue to indicate that lumpectomy followed by breast irradiation is appropriate therapy for women with either negative or positive axillary nodes and breast tumors 4 cm or less in diameter.
Eight-year results of a randomized clinical trial comparing total mastectomy and lumpectomy with or without irradiation in the treatment of breast cancer.
TLDR
The observations through eight years are consistent with the findings at five years and that these new findings continue to support the use of lumpectomy in patients with Stage I or II breast cancer, and it is concluded that irradiation reduces the probability of local recurrence of tumor in patients treated with Lumpectomy.
A successful system of scientific data audits for clinical trials. A report from the Cancer and Leukemia Group B.
TLDR
Scientific improprieties have occurred very rarely in clinical trials conducted by the Cancer and Leukemia Group B (CALGB), and attention to administrative matters of consent forms, institutional review board approval, and ancillary data submission has measurably improved in the CALGB.
Effects of radiotherapy and surgery in early breast cancer. An overview of the randomized trials.
TLDR
Some of the local therapies for breast cancer had substantially different effects on the rates of local recurrence--such as the reduced recurrence with the addition of radiotherapy to surgery--but there were no definite differences in overall survival at 10 years.
Five-year results of a randomized clinical trial comparing total mastectomy and segmental mastectomy with or without radiation in the treatment of breast cancer.
TLDR
It is concluded that segmental mastectomy, followed by breast irradiation in all patients and adjuvant chemotherapy in women with positive nodes, is appropriate therapy for Stage I and II breast tumors less than or equal to 4 cm, provided that margins of resected specimens are free of tumor.
