The purpose of this study is to assess whether the Invenia™ Automated Breast Ultrasound (ABUS) device, as an adjunct to Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT), improves breast cancer detection in women with dense breasts. The study aims to collect information about cancer detection, treatment, and outcomes based on individual and combined technologies in patients who receive ABUS exams in addition to DBT. The results of this study are intended to be used to extend understanding of ABUS as an adjunct in DBT screening in patients with dense breasts.
Surgical treatment of breast cancer is associated with significant disability, and pain is often reported as a primary cause for declines in the ability to perform activities of daily living. However, breast reconstruction at the same time as mastectomy has been linked to higher postoperative pain, which can be a risk factor for persistent pain. The goal of this study is to determine the speed of recovery from pain and opioid use in the first 2 months after breast surgery and reconstruction.
In patients with locally advanced hormone receptor positive (HR+)/HER2- breast cancer, neoadjuvant chemotherapy produces a pathologic complete response rate (pCR) of only 9-15%, and late recurrences often occur despite neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Therefore, there is an unmet clinical need to improve the outcomes of these patients. Tumor-associated macrophages (TAM) infiltration leads to poor outcomes in breast cancer patients by promoting angiogenesis, activating epithelial-mesenchymal transition, degrading the extracellular matrix, and suppressing the anti-tumor immune response. Pre-clinical studies, as summarized above, have shown that the breast cancer immune microenvironment may be reprogrammed by targeting colony-stimulating factor-1 (CSF-1) to decrease TAM infiltration and increase CD8+ TIL infiltration, in order to foster antitumor immunity and improve response to therapy. Here, the investigators propose a phase I dose-escalation study in patients with locally advanced HR+/HER2- breast cancer to determine the feasibility of adding MCS110, a CSF-1 inhibitor, to the standard neoadjuvant chemotherapy regimen of dose-dense doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide followed by paclitaxel. The investigators will also include a dose expansion cohort for preliminary efficacy analysis and correlative studies. The investigators propose that if they can decrease the TAM-induced immunosuppression and TAM-induced chemoresistance observed in breast cancer patients, then the patients' own immune system could find and destroy the dormant and resistant tumor cells, and combined with enhanced chemotherapy efficacy, the investigators will see durable remissions and long term cures.
This is a non-randomized, prospective phase II trial evaluating an innovative treatment, focused MRI-guided ultrasound, as thermic destruction in primitive small size breast cancer.
This is an international, multi-center, randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled clinical study evaluating the efficacy and safety of ribociclib with endocrine therapy as an adjuvant treatment in patients with hormone receptor-positive, HER2-negative, intermediate risk breast cancer.
This is a two-stage phase II study with a single arm design. It will be conducted in women with breast cancer with stages IIA to IIIC (defined by AJCC 2009 classification) of all histological subtypes. All patients will receive 16 doses of paclitaxel; three breast ultrasound tests and tumor pathologic response evaluation will be used to assess the response to treatment.
The purpose of this phase I/II study is to evaluate the safety and clinical activity of Radioiodide (131I-) as a novel targeted therapy for metastatic breast cancer that overexpresses functional Na/I symporter. The study will enroll patients with metastatic breast cancer who have had clinical and/or radiographic evidence of disease progression on prior hormonal and/or chemotherapy.
The aim of the study is to establish the genetic, neurophysiological and psychological phenotype of the patients presenting a persistent neuropathic pain after surgery of the breast cancer, by comparing the neuropathic painful patients with the not painful and with the not neuropathic painful . This will be realized on a transverse cohort ("Seintinelle"cohort) and confirmed on a forward-looking longitudinal cohort.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate and compare the clinical benefit and safety of treatment with enzalutamide in combination with paclitaxel chemotherapy or as monotherapy versus placebo with paclitaxel in patients with locally advanced or metastatic, diagnostic-positive, triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC).
Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter (PICC) and port-a-cath (PAC) are the most commonly medical devices used for the administration of chemotherapy. Placement of these devices via central venous access is sometimes responsible for complications. The incidence of these complications is correlated with the device holding time. A strategy of iterative PICC placement could significantly reduce these complications.
