A 72-year-old woman presented with 2-month history of “bruises” on the left breast. She was treated for a left breast cancer 6 years earlier. She previously had stage IA (cT1cN0M0) invasive ductal carcinoma that was estrogen receptor/progesterone receptor positive and Her2 negative. She underwent partial mastectomy and sentinel lymph node biopsy th at confirmed stage pT1cN0. In the setting of bilateral silicone breast implants, she received adjuvant partial breast irradiation to 36 Gy in 9 fractions twice daily, targeting the seroma with 1.5 to 2 cm margins.
ConclusionsAmong breast cancer patients, nearly one-third exhibit clinical-pathological stage discordance. This high likelihood of discordance is important to consider for counseling and treatment planning.
yong-Huey Lai Endometrial cancer incidence rates are growing, especially in countries with rapid socioeconomic transitions. Despite recent advances in chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and targeted therapy, advanced/recurrent disease remains a clinical challenge. Palbociclib—a selective inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinases (CDK) 4/6—has therapeutic potential against estrogen receptor (ER)-positive and HER2-negative breast cancer. However, the question as to whether it can be clinically useful in endometrial cancer remains open. Here, we show that combined treatment with palbociclib and megesterol acet...
CONCLUSIONS: In patients with ER-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer, adding taxane to an anthracycline regimen did not improve DFS in patients with metastasis in 1-3 lymph nodes. We considered that the group without the addition of taxane might be present in patients with ER-positive, HER2-negative lymph node metastases. PMID: 31327134 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
A trial presented at ASCO 2019 found HER2 heterogenity can impact response rates to some treatments in HER2-positive breast cancer patients.

CONCLUSION: Residual nodal disease after NAC analysed by LNRC or LNR = 0.25 cut-off value, is prognostic and can discriminate between favourable and unfavourable outcomes for TNBC and Her2+ breast cancers.

Here, we present a quantitative proteotyping approach based on sequential windowed acquisition of all theoretical fragment ion spectra (SWATH) mass spectrometry and establish key proteins for breast tu...
