This project proposes a pilot intervention in Burera District to train rural Rwandan community health workers (CHWs) in breast awareness, and to train primary care nurses at rural health centers in the assessment and management of breast complaints, with a focus on when patients must be urgently referred for more advanced evaluation. The project will randomize health centers to receive the intervention and will evaluate the impact of these trainings on nurse and CHW knowledge and skills. In order to help Rwanda prepare for national early detection efforts, the investigators will also assess the impact of these trainings on patient volume at the health center level, and visits and further diagnostic testing at the district hospital level. The investigators will also examine the impact on the length of diagnostic delays experienced by patients with a breast problem. Among those patients diagnosed with breast cancer, the investigators will also assess their stage at diagnosis.
The purpose of the study was to analyze the psychological and emotional determinants of domestic dissemination of information about genetic risk of cancer and to compare the level of diffusion syndromes in breast/ ovarian cancer ( BRCA1 / BRCA2) and colon/endometrial ( HNPCC )
This is an open randomized phase III study. The primary objective of this study is to compare FEC adjuvant chemotherapy in operable breast cancer given either as fixed doses calculated according to the patients surface area or with doses adjusted according to leukopenia after course one in order to achieve hematological equitoxicity. The main aim of the study is to test whether chemotherapy dosage aimed at hematological equitoxicity will improve the effect of adjuvant chemotherapy.
The aim of this international open-label randomized phase II trial is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of an all-oral combination and two all-intravenous combinations as first-line therapy for HER2-negative mBC patients.
The aim of the study was to evaluate a new integrative day-care clinic concept for breast cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. This is an explorative pilot study. Therefore, all outcomes are analyzed exploratively.
The study was a multicentre, observational, cross-sectional, open and monitored trial involving 274 females who were subject to an examination using liquid crystal contact thermography device as a complementary tool to standard diagnostic imaging procedures of the breast glands. The study was conducted in specialist outpatient clinics. Patients were eligible to participate in the study upon signing the informed consent form. There was no follow up after the thermographic examination. The study will comprise of a single registration of thermographic images of the breasts which will be subjected to automatic and expert analysis by radiologists.
The increased likelihood of survival can be explained by numerous factors, such as improvements in breast cancer screening and advances in diagnosis and treatment and aging. This phenomenon is associated with comorbidity due to cancer treatment and external factors like aging or lifestyle. Little is known about how these women follow-up their disease, their pattern of use of health resources and their met and unmet needs. Studying the health needs of these women is a cancer-related priority for Cancer Organizations.The project is aimed at: 1) Describing the comorbidities and patterns of use of primary and specialized care in women who have survived a breast cancer for at least five years; 2) Comparing the comorbidities and patterns of use of long time breast cancer survivors with women without a cancer diagnosis; and 3) Estimating the use of resources in long time survivors of breast cancer adjusted for survival-time and comorbidities.
A prospective double-blind randomized trial of red clover extract (Promensil) vs placebo in surgically-treated premenopausal women with estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer taking tamoxifen
in this study we are investigating the role of instillation of Bupivacaine through surgical drains at the end of mastectomy surgeries in controlling post operative pain and decreasing their pain killers requirement in the early postoperative period
Persistant Organics Pollutants (POP) accumulate in the adipose tissue (AT) and could modulate tumor progression as part of the microenvironment. The investigators tested the hypothesis that POPs exposure may be associated with breast cancer metastasis analyzing the concentrations of 46 POPs in both adipose tissue and serum samples from breast tumor patients (benign, malignant with and without lymph node metastasis)
