The aim is to characterise the metabolic profiling of dietary polyphenols in normal and malignant breast tissues from breast cancer patients.
In March 2009, Health Canada approved Tomosynthesis for use in screening and diagnosis of breast cancer. The Tomosynthesis technology is designed as a complementary imaging model that is incorporated into the 2D Mammography system. This new imaging system has the capability to provide 2D, 3D and combination mode models. It consists of generating thin slice images that can be viewed individually as multiple images from the same breast. Tomosynthesis provides improved visibility of possible lesions within the breast. The study aims to compare the performance of Tomosynthesis to the conventional Digital Mammography in detecting and characterizing suspicious findings in subjects who will be having breast biopsies.
This phase II trial studies how well deep inspiratory breath hold or prone breast radiation therapy works in reducing cardiac dose in patients with breast cancer or ductal carcinoma in situ. Deep inspiratory breath hold is a technique that involves a patient holding their breath during radiation to move the heart away from the breast to minimize radiation to the heart. Prone breast radiation therapy is a technique in which a patient receives treatment "face-down" to minimize the radiation to the rest of the body, including the heart and lungs. Comparing deep inspiratory breath hold to prone breast radiation therapy may help doctors improve radiation to the target while reducing radiation to healthy tissues surrounding the target.
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.
POC Medical Systems has developed a Point of Care system for the screening of breast cancer in the general population. Via a proprietary algorithm, the MammoAlert™ is expected to determine breast cancer's risk level for a subject by identifying the presence in plasma of known biomarkers. The present study aims to determine the Sensitivity and Specificity of the test in plasma samples of subjects of whom the status vis-à-vis breast cancer is known.
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 research study is evaluating ear acupuncture as a possible treatment to reduce symptoms related to receiving chemotherapy.
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
