NCT ID: NCT04967976 Recruiting - Clinical trial for Breast Cancer

Breast Mesh Used in Two-staged Breast Reconstruction

Start date: August 1, 2021
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This is the first prospective randomized and controlled study on the efficacy and safety of TiLOOP® Bra mesh in patients with expander-implant breast reconstruction. The investigators hypothesize that incoporating TiLOOP Bra mesh with tissue expanders will reduce the rates of capsular contraction, improve the efficiency of expansion and provide better aesthetic result.

Prophylactic Irradiation to the Contralateral Breast for BCAs Patients

PICB
Start date: January 1, 2023
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide, with high mortality. About 5% to 10% of breast cancers are hereditary. Most inherited cases of breast cancer are associated with germline mutations in genes, such as BRCA1, BRCA2 and PALB2. The cumulative breast cancer risk for BRCA1, BRCA2 or PALB2 mutation carriers was high. Besides the increased breast cancer risk for the inherited mutation carriers, the risk of subsequent contralateral breast cancer for the mutation carriers with breast cancer was also significantly increased. Contralateral prophylactic mastectomy was usually recommended to the breast cancer patients with BRCA mutation. However, many breast cancer patients refused the contralateral prophylactic mastectomy, due to the surgical injury, potential surgical complications, deleteriously affected body image and sexuality. Solid evidence validated that radiotherapy after surgery resulted in a reduced local recurrence for three times lower than surgery alone. It is thought that radiation would eliminate the microscopic tumors which may already exist in the breast. Thus, we proposed that for the breast cancer patients with BRCA1, BRCA2 or PALB2 deleterious germline mutations, prophylactic irradiation to the contralateral breast may reduce the risk of subsequent contralateral breast cancer. And we would like to further compare the effect of prophylactic irradiation to the published data from traditional prophylactic contralateral mastectomy.

Pilot Study of the Predictive Value of TREM1 Expression and Activation in Inflammation and Radio-induced Mammary Fibrosis

TREM-1
Start date: April 1, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the world. Half of patients with such cancer are treated with radiation therapy. Some patients will develop cutaneous or subcutaneous fibrosis, more or less bothersome. Several studies have shown a correlation between an inflammatory reaction and a protein, called TREM-1. But to date, no link has been proven between TREM-1 and inflammation / fibrosis in the phenomena of fibrosis induced by radiotherapy in patients with breast cancer. Our study aims to understand the involvement of this TREM-1 protein in the development of fibrosis or radio-epidermis in patients with breast cancer.
