In a series of 226 patients with a total of 240 breast tumors, there was no significant difference between patients with node-positive or node-negative
disease in the rate of conversion from a planned nipple-sparing procedure to a skin-sparing procedure, reported Dr.
The Oncotype-DX test is validated for patients with node-negative
early breast cancer as well as limited node involvement (pNmic/pN1), ER(+), HER-2(-) negative breast cancer to identify whether a patient who will receive at least a five-year course of endocrine therapy is likely to derive benefit from chemotherapy.
Women with low EndoPredict scores had a statistically significantly reduced risk of distant recurrence compared to those with high scores Importantly, EndoPredict was highly predictive of both early and late distant recurrence in both node-negative
and node-positive women, Myriad said.
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Switzerland-based Roche's Herceptin Hylecta (trastuzumab and hyaluronidase-oysk) for subcutaneous (under the skin) injection intended to treat certain people with HER2-positive early breast cancer (node-positive, or node-negative
and ER/PR-negative or with one high-risk feature) in combination with chemotherapy and HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer in combination with paclitaxel or alone in people who have received one or more chemotherapy regimens for metastatic disease, it was reported on Friday.
Herceptin Hylecta, which is a subcutaneous fixed-dose combination of trastuzumab and hyaluronidase-oysk, is approved for the treatment of certain people with HER2-positive early breast cancer (node-positive, or node-negative
and ER/PR-negative or with one high-risk feature) in combination with chemotherapy and HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer in combination with paclitaxel or alone in people who have received one or more chemotherapy regimens for metastatic disease.
Patterns of clinical practice for sentinel lymph node biopsy in women with node-negative
breast cancer: the results of a national survey in Japan.
Breast cancer prognosis is related to different factors including age, tumor size, grade, histologic type, lymphatic vessel invasion (LVI), lymph node metastasis, and expression of hormone receptors., Among them, LVI and lymph node metastasis are the main prognostic factors in patient's survival., Furthermore, LVI plays a critical rule in cancer metastasis. It is considered as an independent prognostic factor in lymph node-negative
patients with mortality of breast cancer increases from 29% to 53% in node-negative
patients with LVI.,, This emphasizes the importance of correct detection of LVI.
The majority of breast cancer patients diagnosed worldwide have hormone-positive, HER2-negative, node-negative
The study, from the US National Cancer Institute, included 10 273 women with hormone receptor-positive, HER2-negative, axillary node-negative
early-stage breast cancer.
CHICAGO -- Use of the 21-tumor gene expression assay (Oncotype DX Recurrence Score) allows nearly 70% of women with hormone receptor-positive, HER2-negative, node-negative
early-stage breast cancer to safely forgo adjuvant chemotherapy, sparing them adverse effects and preventing overtreatment, TAILORx trial results show.
More than 20,000 women in the UK are diagnosed with hormonereceptor positive, HER2-negative, node-negative
breast cancer annually.
