This is a three-month open-label, multicenter, interventional, single arm study located in France, designed to assess feasibility and reliability of the e-Health ZEMY software medical device under investigation for use by participants with breast cancer, who are starting an anti-cancer treatment at any stage of the disease, to manage disease symptoms and anti-cancer treatment-related toxicities while at home.
Although there has been interval improvement in reducing disparity in mammography utilization in medically underserved communities since the 1990s, significant disparities persist and should be addressed. In the 40-65 year old age range, there is significant disparity in screening mammography utilization in Hispanic women compared to their white counterparts. Culturally adapted patient-targeted healthcare interventions can help reduce ethnic inequalities in access to cancer screening programs. Promotoras, culturally appropriate patient navigators for the Hispanic community, have been shown to increase screening mammography rates in the Hispanic/Latino population. However, there is little research exploring the interaction between these lay community health workers and community members. This proposal aims to assess this interaction by measuring the impact of a Promotora working with community members in either a group setting or individual setting. Understanding this interaction can lead to more effectively designed future community interventions. Primary outcomes in this study will include women's reported measures of interpersonal processes of care (communication and interpersonal style) during screening mammography care, trust in the healthcare system, and satisfaction with cancer screening care when compared to those receiving standard of care.
Feasibility study to examine the preventative ability of massage therapy on paclitaxel induced peripheral neuropathy in breast cancer
The aim of this study is to create clear indications for Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy (SLNB) or Axillary Dissection (AD) in women with breast carcinoma after neoadjuvant therapy by studying the false negative rate of SLNB.
This is a Phase III, double-blind, randomized, multicenter study to compare the efficacy and to evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of TX05 (trastuzumab) with Herceptin® in subjects with HER2 positive early breast cancer.
The propose of this prospective study focuses on the role of [18F]FES PET imaging in patients with breast cancer who might receive or are receiving hormone therapy. First, we will develop and optimize the radiosynthesis and quality control tests of [18F]FES in conditions that meet good manufacturing practice (GMP) requirements. Secondly, patients with or without metastatic breast cancer will be enrolled for the conduction of human study. [18F]FES PET imaging will be performed on patients before the initiation of hormone therapy to predict the prognosis and therapeutic response to hormone therapy. The [18F]FES PET results will be compared with ER status obtained by immunohistochemical (IHC) staining on surgically obtained specimens. Moreover, in patients with progression of metastatic disease, the [18F]FES PET will be correlated with ESR1 gene mutation, which is one of the mechanisms for resistance to hormone therapy.
This is a randomized pilot study to better understand the relationships among insomnia, weight loss, and breast cancer. This study will assess the effectiveness of a sleep intervention prior to a web- and phone-based weight loss program.
The purpose of this study is to test the safety of a study drug called Rucaparib, administered in combination with the type of radiation therapy that is usually given to women with your form of breast cancer.
Internal Mammary Lymph Node (IMLN) and Axillary Lymph Node (ALN) are regarded as "the first station" of lymphatic drainage in breast cancer, serving as an important reference for lymph staging and decision-making. Although the concept of Internal Mammary Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy (IM-SLNB) has been included in the AJCC guidelines since the 6th edition, technical bottlenecks and clinical benefits still remained to be the main reasons limiting its clinical application: Technical bottlenecks: In previous clinical practice, the internal mammary visualization rate was very low (13% on average, 0% -37%) under the guidance of the traditional radionuclide injection technique, which became a technology bottleneck restricting the widespread of IM-SLNB. After continuous exploration, our center invented the "modified injection technique" of injecting the nuclide tracer into the mammary gland layer at 6 and 12 o'clock around the areolar under the guidance of ultrasound, as well as increasing the injection volume to increase the local tension. A high internal mammary imaging rate of 71% was obtained, which laid a foundation for the further study and clinical application of IM-SLNB. Clinical benefits: The IM-SLNB is a method to assess IMLN metastatic status in a minimally invasive way, which may improve the system of regional staging and guide precise IMLN treatment. However, based on the current IM-SLNB indication, the internal mammary metastasis rate was only 8%-15%, and it only had little influence on treatment strategy, which led to the controversy of its clinical application. Previous studies of extended radical mastectomy showed that in ALN positive patients the IMLN metastasis rate was 28-52%, while in ALN negative patients the metastasis rate was only 5-17%. Therefore, the continuation of the previous A-SLNB indication (clinical ALN negative) to IM-SLNB is apparently not in line with the current clinical practice, but further evaluation of internal mammary metastasis status in clinical ALN positive patients may receive greater benefit. This prospective multicenter study attempted to perform IM-SLNB with our modified injection technique both in clinical ALN negative and positive patients for the first time. Through analyzing metastasis rate of IMLN as well as the influences it had on decision making, we hoped to develop more accurate indication for IM-SLNB and guide the individualized precise treatment of IMLN.
Object:The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of sticking and massaging auricular points for the management of hot flashes in postoperative breast cancer patients.
