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]
Authors: Goller SS, Markert UR, Fröhlich K Abstract Breast cancer is one of the most common malignancies which appear during pregnancy. Since women are increasingly not giving birth until they are at a more advanced age, it can be assumed that the incidence of pregnancy-related breast cancers will continue to increase in the future. Because of pregnancy-induced changes and conservative diagnosis, these carcinomas are frequently not detected until they are at an advanced stage and thus generally require systemic adjuvant therapy. The available data on optimal chemotherapeutic management are limited. Particularl...
Breast cancer is one of the most frequently diagnosed malignancies during pregnancy. Tumours often present characteristics of high malignancy and are hormone receptor negative/HER2 positive or triple negative. In general, pregnancy, including the postpartum period, is associated with a transiently increased risk of developing breast cancer but followed by a long-lasting protective period. Placental metastases are very rare and, thus far, breast cancer metastases in the foetal compartment have not been described.
Li Liu, Jiajing Lin and Hongying He* Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Liuzhou Worker’s Hospital, Fourth Affiliated Hospital of Guangxi Medical University, Liuzhou, China Background and Objective: Endometrial cancer (EC) is a common gynecological malignancy worldwide. Despite advances in the development of strategies for treating EC, prognosis of the disease remains unsatisfactory, especially for advanced EC. The aim of this study was to identify novel genes that can be used as potential biomarkers for identifying the prognosis of EC and to construct a novel risk stratification using these genes. Me...
Conclusions: Our model is more reliable and stable to assist doctors predict the SLN metastasis in breast cancer patients before operation. Introduction The incidence of breast cancer is the first in female malignant tumors, in which the highest incidence of breast cancer has been reported in Europe and the United States, however, in recent years, the incidence of breast cancer in China has annually increased (1, 2). Based on surgery as an important step in the treatment of breast cancer, in recent years, different individuals have never stopped exploration of a novel and optimum approach. Besides, NSABP-04, ASCOG-...
ConclusionPABC is an aggressive form of breast cancer associated with advanced stage at diagnosis. Despite the existing difficulties in diagnosis, imaging examinations are indispensable. Early diagnosis and multidisciplinary therapy, including anti ‐HER2 targeted therapy, may be important to improve prognosis.
Conclusion: Compared with nulliparous women, parous women have an increased risk for breast cancer for more than 20 years after childbirth. Health care providers should consider recent childbirth a risk factor for breast cancer in young women.

ConclusionPABC showed different biologic features than non-PABC. PABC had a particularly poor prognosis in the luminal B (HR+ HER2-highKi67) and HER2 subtypes. To improve the prognosis of PABC, treatment should be considered according to subtype. Development of drugs that can be used during pregnancy is needed.
CONCLUSIONS: Further educational initiatives are needed to improve physicians' knowledge and adherence to available guidelines when addressing fertility and pregnancy-related issues in young breast cancer patients. PMID: 30170202 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Each molecular subtype of breast cancer in our population may be associated with specific reproductive risk factors. PMID: 30049185 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusion: In this study, PABC showed lower expression of ER/PR, higher overexpression of HER2, fewer luminal A subtype, and more TNBC subtype compared to YBC. PABC had worse BCSS, especially luminal B subtype, compared to YBC.Oncology
