Our study aims to evaluate the possibility of clinical application of CTC detection in samples or peripheral blood of breast cancer patients, so as to act as the new techniques or indicators of early diagnosis, therapy efficiency, or postoperative surveillance of breast cancer.
PELICAN is a randomised phase II trial that aims to evaluate the efficacy and safety of paclitaxel plus pembrolizumab relative to paclitaxel alone, in patients with locally advanced or metastatic ER-positive, HER2-negative, Luminal B breast cancer who have received no prior chemotherapy for advanced or metastatic disease. Patients will be randomised (2:1) to one of the two treatment arms: - Pembrolizumab plus Paclitaxel - Paclitaxel
To compare the combination of Ribociclib plus goserelin acetate with hormonal therapy versus combination chemotherapy in premenopausal or perimenopausal patients with advanced or metastatic breast cancer
Breast cancer is the most frequent malignancy in women. Standard therapy for early-stage breast cancer is breast conserving surgery (BCS) followed by adjuvant whole breast irradiation (WBI), which usually requires a treatment time of 3-6 weeks. Several randomized controlled trials (RCTs) demonstrated that postoperative WBI after BCS significantly decreased the risk of local (in-breast) recurrence and improved breast cancer mortality as well as survival. However, one of the most common side-effects of radiotherapy is fatigue, which is reported in up to 80% of cancer patients during treatment. Especially in early-stage breast cancer patients it might be the only serious side-effect following adjuvant irradiation, as fatigue often significantly reduces quality of life due to resulting functional impairment and psychological distress. Fatigue additionally has a distinct socioeconomic impact: 75% of patients and 40% of caregivers are forced to change their employment status due to cancer-related fatigue. For reducing treatment-related toxicity, several RCTs consequently addressed the question whether adjuvant WBI could be omitted in early-stage, low risk breast cancer patients treated with endocrine therapy. However, all these trials detected up to seven-time increased local recurrence rates without WBI following BCS. Both, longer duration of radiotherapy and larger radiation field sizes are known to be associated with increase in treatment-related fatigue. Accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI), delivered exclusively to the original tumor location and not to the surrounding breast tissue, might therefore be an alternative treatment option with fewer side-effects for early-stage, low risk breast cancer patients. Few previous trials have already reported comparable outcomes for highly selected low-risk breast cancer patients for APBI compared to conventional WBI. First results also point out that APBI compared to WBI might be associated with less severity and intensity of fatigue. One method for APBI is single-dose intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT) delivered directly to the tumor after resection. Data is still limited for APBI, hence current international and German guidelines suggest the use of APBI for low-risk early stage breast cancer patients but recommend the application of APBI preferably within a clinical trial.
This is a phase Ib/II Study of Leronlimab (PRO 140) combined with Carboplatin in Patients with CCR5+ Metastatic Triple Negative Breast Cancer (mTNBC). Study population will consist of patients with CCR5-positive, locally advanced or metastatic triple-negative breast cancer (mTNBC) who are naïve to chemotherapy in metastatic setting but have been exposed to anthracyclines and taxane in neoadjuvant and adjuvant settings (first-line).
The purpose of this study is to explore the feasibility and acceptability of a brief, virtual, group-based cognitive-behavioral intervention for breast cancer survivors taking hormonal therapy. The intervention (STRIDE) aims to alleviate symptoms related to hormonal therapy or breast cancer, optimize medication-taking (i.e., adherence), and reduce distress.
Joint symptoms including stiffness, local pain and aches are common adverse reactions among breast cancer (BC) patients undergoing hormone treatments, while effective interventions for managing such symptoms have not been well explored so far. Acupuncture can be a promising approach to controlling joint symptoms in BC patients but current research evidence generated from several small-scale clinical studies have not been robust enough to support the use of acupuncture for cancer symptom management in routine practice. The overall aim of the research project is to examine the effectiveness of a 6-week acupuncture protocol for the management of joint symptoms in Chinese female BC patients who are currently undergoing hormone treatments following the completion of taxane-based chemotherapy.
A prospective observational multicenter study to compare the outcome of breast cancer surveillance using mammography, breast US, contrast-enhanced MRI, and diffusion-weighted MR imaging (DWI) as a screening tool, in the high-risk women for breast cancer. - Primary objective: To compare the sensitivity of mammography, breast US, contrast-enhanced MRI, and DWI for the detection of breast cancer - Secondary objective: 1. To compare the specificity of mammography, breast US, contrast-enhanced MRI, and DWI for the detection of breast cancer 2. To compare the cancer detection rate of mammography, breast US, contrast-enhanced MRI, and DWI 3. To compare the characteristics of detected cancers
Decision making about whether to have breast reconstruction after mastectomy can be difficult, and previous studies have found that many women are not well informed about their options. Patient decision aids can improve decision quality for a variety of health conditions. This pilot randomized study seeks to determine how a patient decision aid about breast reconstruction affects the quality of decisions about reconstruction including patient knowledge, concordance between preferences and treatment, and decisional regret.
Breast Cancer treatment may cause several side effects, some long lasting. Adjuvant hormone therapy helps avoiding recurrence triggers vulvovaginal atrophy syndrome. This study evaluate a photodynamic treatment with light emitting diode to improve vaginal dryness and irritation, pruritus, pain or discomfort in intercourse.
