The French E3N cohort was initiated in 1990 to investigate the risk factors associated with cancer and other major non-communicable diseases in women. The participants were insured through a national health system that primarily covered teachers, and were enrolled from 1990 after returning baseline self-administered questionnaires and providing informed consent. The cohort comprised nearly 100 000 women with baseline ages ranging from 40 to 65 years. Follow-up questionnaires were sent approximately every 2-3 years after the baseline and addressed general and lifestyle characteristics together with medical events (cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, depression, fractures and asthma, among others). The follow-up questionnaire response rate remained stable at approximately 80%. A biological material bank was generated and included blood samples collected from 25 000 women and saliva samples from an additional 47 000 women. Ageing among the E3N cohort provided the opportunity to investigate factors related to agerelated diseases and conditions as well as disease survival.
Radioisotopic and wire localizations suffer from several limitations. These techniques add another procedure prior to surgery, can be uncomfortable and entail additional cost. The aim is to develop a novel technique of breast tumor localization using preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and breast optical scanning. Patients with diagnosis of breast cancer who have had a preoperative MRI and 3D optical scans are included. Optical scanning is done preoperatively and intraoperatively after tumor localization was marked on the breast using radioisotopic technique. The MRI is then adjusted with the intraoperative optical scan to match the breast position at the time of surgery. The investigators evaluate the efficiency for localization of breast lesion of the novel technique by comparison with radiosiotopic technique.
The aim of the BRAGATSTON study is to provide a low cost tool for measuring CAC in breast cancer patients, thereby identifying patients at increased risk of CVD. Breast cancer patients and doctors can act upon this, by adapting the treatment and/or by adopting cardioprotective interventions. Hereby, the burden of CVD in breast cancer survivors can be reduced and better overall survival rates can be achieved.
AUS/FNAC allows the identification of tumors without axillary tumor involvement, or with low axillary tumor burden, many of which do not benefit from SLNB, in the staging of early breast cancer. Objective: To calculate the negative predictive value of AUS/FNAC in those patients with breast cancer who meet ACOSOG Z0011 criteria.
This is a phase 1b/2 study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of ETBX-011 vaccine used in combination with ALT-803 in subjects with locally advanced or metastatic CEA-expressing cancers whose tumor has recurred after standard-of-care treatment.
This study retrospectively looks at changes in Echocardiographic parameters while using transtuzumab
Background and objectives The Pectoral Nerves Block (Pecs) Type II is a regional anesthesia technique that provides post-surgical pain relief for patients undergoing breast surgery. Post-procedural pain relief is known to diminish persistent pain. In this prospective follow-up, the investigators evaluated whether the Pecs II block, compared to placebo, is effective in reducing persistent post-procedural pain after breast cancer surgery in female patients. Patients and methods 140 breast cancer stage 1-3 patients undergoing mastectomy or tumorectomy with sentinel node or axillary node dissection under general anesthesia were randomized to receive a Pecs block (levobupivacaine 0.25%) or placebo (saline 0.9%). Patients were invited between 9 and 31 months after surgery to complete a persistent postsurgical pain survey.
The purpose of this work: to assess the tolerability and effectiveness of the autogemotherapy method on the basis of autologous antigen-activated dendritic cells in the treatment of patients with breast cancer. This technology is intended for complex treatment of patients with breast cancer and is aimed at preventing the occurrence and treatment of secondary foci. The need for this technology is justified by the widespread occurrence of breast cancer among women, a decrease in the average age at onset of the disease and a young age, and the chemoresistantness of locally advanced forms of cancer.
This is a feasibility study to evaluate dual-energy (DE) contrast-enhanced (CE) digital mammography to detect breast cancer in patients with increased breast density (BI-RADS category c or d). Eligible patients will be invited to have full-field digital mammography and dual-energy (DE) contrast-enhanced (CE) digital mammography to compare accuracy of the imaging methods for the detection of breast cancer.
1. Identify the tissue proteins associated with early breast cancer invasion phases without lymph node involvement . 2. Consider their role in the invasion and the risk of tumor spread .
