A Study Of SIBP-01 Or CN-Trastuzumab Plus Docetaxel And Carboplatin In HER2 Positive Breast Cancer
Condition: HER2-positive Early Breast Cancer Interventions: Drug: SIBP-01; Drug: Herceptin; Drug: Docetaxel; Drug: Carboplatin Sponsors: Shanghai Institute Of Biological Products; Fudan University Recruiting
HER2-overexpressing metastatic breast cancers are challenging practice in oncology when they become resistant to anti-HER2 therapies such as trastuzumab. In these clinical situations, HER2-overexpression persi...
We present the case of a young, pregnant patient with metastatic BC with a complete clinical response to chemotherapy followed by surgical treatment. PMID: 31281427 [PubMed]
Conclusions: A relevant number of patients required dose reduction but dose-reduced chemotherapy was tolerated well. Anthracycline-based regimens were used in patients who had not received adjuvant chemotherapy. Capecitabine required the most dose reductions. Taxanes were generally started at reduced doses, resulting in fewer grade 3+ toxicities. As well as age, underlying physiological reserve, current performance status and co-morbidities should guide physicians who should consider lower starting doses in OA and recognise that dose reductions may be required to improve tolerability. The PFS of all regimens were similar i...
Authors: Jang Y, Cho EY, Cho SY Abstract Mucinous carcinoma (MC) is a rare subtype of breast cancer, which is composed of tumor cells floating in the abundant extracellular mucin. This form of cancer is usually estrogen receptor/progesterone receptor positive and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) negative. Here, we present a case of HER2-positive MC with an unusual signet ring cell differentiation. It is very rare that a breast tumor consists entirely of signet ring cells. The tumor showed pathologic complete response (pCR) after neoadjuvant chemotherapy with trastuzumab and pertuzumab. pCR of HER2-po...
Conclusion: The RSS is comparable to the AJCC8 PS for a patient population receiving chemotherapy as well as endocrine- and HER2-targeted therapy and further stratifies stage IV patients. PMID: 31281728 [PubMed]
In conclusion, BRCA1 mutation was associated with TNBC and the luminal B HER2 (-) subtype. HER2-positive subtypes were characteristic of the control group. CHEK2 and NOD2 mutation carriers had a more favorable profile of prognostic factors. PMID: 31281656 [PubMed]
Conclusions: The combination of 2 or 3 comorbidities significantly increases the incidence of symptomatic cancer treatment-related cardiotoxicity. Patients with bca experiencing cancer treatment-related cardiotoxicity who have a history of diabetes, dyslipidemia, and obesity might require more proactive strategies for prevention, detection, and treatment of cardiotoxicity while receiving trastuzumab-based treatment.

Conclusion: Administering adjuvant trastuzumab in a weekly cycle concurrently with anthracycline-taxane chemotherapy regimen appears to be a preferable option to optimize its favorable effect in improving DFS and to prevent significantly higher risk for cardiotoxic effects.

Novel research suggests that using a nano-molecularly imprinted polymer may offer a unique and effective way to treat HER2+ breast cancer.
