Although clinical decision tools (CDTs) exist for a variety of treatments, CDTs designed to support personalized breast reconstruction decisions, particularly about type and timing of reconstruction, are lacking. The objective of this proposal is to develop and pilot test a clinical decision tool that provides personalized risk information and reflects patients' preferences and clinical needs.
The purpose of a phase Ib study is to find out the best or maximum tolerated dose of a medication or combination of medications. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to decide the best dose of the study drug, Debio 1347, that can be given in combination with the standard hormonal drug, fulvestrant. Debio 1347 and fulvestrant could shrink the cancer but it could also cause side effects. This study tells us about the side effects of these drugs when given in this new combination, and how often they occur.
Blood samples from a total of 200 women in two cohorts will be collected and analyzed by TM-B1 assay, which is based on TBIA (Total Biochemical Infrared Analysis) to confirm the presence of cancer. These two cohorts will yield 75 healthy women with no pathological findings, 75 women diagnosed as having benign breast tumor and 50 women diagnosed as having breast cancer.
A study to compare the efficacy, safety and immunogenicity of Leucostim® to those of Neupogen® in patients with breast cancer intended to be treated with TAC regimen as a myelosuppressive chemotherapy.
This research study is studying an intervention as a possible treatment for Triple Negative Breast Cancer.
The optimal dose and fractionation regimen for whole breast irradiation, whole breast and regional nodal irradiation, and postmastectomy radiotherapy remains unknown. The goal of this phase II randomized controlled trial is to determine whether the hypofractionated proton regimens proposed are non-inferior compared with standard fractionated proton radiotherapy and therefore worthy of further investigation.
The purpose of the present study was to test the hypothesis that doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide adjuvant chemotherapy (CHT) acutely induces neurovascular and hemodynamic changes in patients with breast cancer. To test this hypothesis, women with breast cancer (stage II-III) underwent two experimental sessions, saline (SL) and CHT. In the CHT session, doxorubicin (60 mg/m2) and cyclophosphamide (600mg/m2) were administred in 45 min. In the SL session, a matching saline volume to that of the CHT session was infused over 45 min.
This study will evaluate the efficacy of ipatasertib + paclitaxel versus placebo + paclitaxel in participants with histologically confirmed, locally advanced or metastatic triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) and in participants with locally advanced or metastatic hormone receptor positive (HR+)/ human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 negative (HER2−) breast adenocarcinoma who are not suitable for endocrine therapy.
The end of treatment marks the beginning of a challenging period for breast cancer patients. While this period often provokes a sense of relief, it can also be a source of apprehension and vulnerability regarding the future. Patients may be brought to feel contradictory thoughts and emotions impacting their quality of life such as anxiety linked to uncertainty and fear of cancer recurrence. In order to accompany breast cancer patients during this transition period and to address these emotional difficulties, the Institut Jules Bordet has launched an 8-session psychological multi-component group intervention. Its objective is to bring patients tools and competencies (e.g., hypnosis, treatment of intrusive thoughts, learning to cope with uncertainty, attention reorientation toward positive thoughts) to promote emotion management and well-being.
Breast cancer is the most frequent tumor site among women in the world (FERLAY et al., 2015). In Brazil, estimates for the year 2017 indicate the occurrence of about 57,960 new cases (56.2 cases per 100,000 women); (Brazil - Ministry of Health, 2015). The increase in adjuvant therapies resulted in an estimated increase of 22 million cancer survivors worldwide (GOLDSTEIN et al., 2012). However, as survival rates increased, more women faced complications related to diagnosis and treatment (ABRAHMS et al., 2016). Adjuvant radiotherapy is a frequent treatment in breast cancer and fatigue it is the main adverse effects (HICKOK et al., 2005). Measures of intervention through physical activity have shown benefits in the increase of the functional capacity that generates a reduction of effort and decrease of the fatigue (MARKES et al., 2009). General Objective: To evaluate the influence of Mat Pilates on fatigue, quality of life, functional capacity, flexibility, lymphedema, radiodermatitis and depression, in the women with breast cancer and with an indication of adjuvant radiotherapy, at the Cancer Hospital III of the National Cancer Institute (INCA). After recruitment, women will be allocated randomly in: Intervention Group (Mat Pilates and usual activities) and Control Group (usual activities). Patients in the intervention group will be submitted to 10 sessions of Mat Pilates for a period of 5 weeks (from beginning to end of adjuvant radiotherapy). Patients assigned to the control group will not participate in the Mat Pilates program, but will maintain the usual exercises for upper limbs, guided by physiotherapists in the postoperative period. In both groups, patients will be submitted, functional capacity assessment, flexibility assessment, assessment of the presence of lymphedema, and questionnaire application of fatigue, quality of life, level of physical activity and depression. Will be performed a descriptive analysis of the population. Univariate logistic regression will be performed between the outcomes according to the exercise groups and also, for the possible confounding variables. The variables with p<0.20 will be selected for adjustment in the construction of the multiple logistic regression model. Those with p<0.05 and/or with clinical significance will be maintained in the model.
