Adjuvant therapy for breast cancer by Monica Castiglione( )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adjuvant treatment is administered prior to or as follow up to surgical procedures for breast cancer. Proven success in using medical therapies allowing for breast conserving procedures or reducing risk of occurrence. Although there has been much progress towards a cure, including the introduction of new targeted therapies, metastasizing cancer remains highly incurable. "The adjuvant treatment of breast cancer has become standard of care. A spectrum of biologic and prognostic factors are considered before a therapeutic strategy is implemented. In this text leading investigators in the field discuss current management and critical investigative issues." Steven T. Rosen, M.D. Series Editor
Breast cancer and molecular medicine by Martine J Piccart( )

16 editions published in 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Molecular-based medicine is taking center stage due to the increasing knowledge of breast cancer molecular biology. Treatment tailoring is no longer a dream for the future, but the main goal of current research. This book provides an overview of the most recent techniques, agents and approaches for breast cancer that contribute to the individualization of treatment. Current biomedical research focuses on facilitating the transfer of molecular biology knowledge into the clinical management of patients, leading to increased survival as well as improved quality of life. Particular attention is given in this book to organ-specific tailored approaches, specific populations, patients' preferences and rehabilitation. Also discussed in depth, are the respective roles of pharmacotherapeutics modelling, functional imaging, molecular staging, genomics and proteomics and their impact on the "re-classification" of breast cancer, as well as the clinical applications of basic science. The crucial issue of how to optimally integrate biological markers, new technologies and new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches into clinical trials and clinical practice is addressed.; Combining the contributions from authors who are well known experts in these fields with editorial comments, this book provides an overview of the latest achievements in breast cancer and their use in clinical practice

Jumping higher: is it still possible? : the ALTTO trial challenge( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trastuzumab, a humanized monoclonal antibody directed against HER2, used alone or in combination with chemotherapy, has shown significant clinical benefit in improving survival in the metastatic setting, as well as halving the recurrence rate and improving survival in HER2-positive early breast cancer. Lapatinib is an orally active, reversible, small-molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor that potently inhibits both HER1 and HER2 tyrosine kinase activity. This agent is the most advanced in terms of clinical trials and has been shown to have a favorable safety profile. Owing to the promising activity seen in advanced breast cancer, lapatinib is the ideal candidate for testing in the adjuvant setting. Adjuvant Lapatinib and/or Trastuzumab Treatment Optimisation (ALTTO) is a four-arm randomized trial designed to compare trastuzumab and lapatinib in women with early-stage HER2-positive breast cancer. Specifically, ALTTO will examine which anti-HER2 agent is more effective and which is their best schedule of administration, namely, what benefit will be derived by taking the drugs separately, in tandem order or in combination. Overall, 8000 patients will be enrolled worldwide
A European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicentre phase II trial of anastrozole in combination with gefitinib or placebo in hormone receptor-positive advanced breast cancer (NCT00066378).( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Preclinical data suggest that epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitors (e.g. gefitinib) can delay endocrine resistance in breast cancer. A double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase II trial investigated whether adding gefitinib (G) to anastrozole (A) would improve outcome in advanced breast cancer (ABC). METHODS: Postmenopausal pre-treated hormone receptor-positive ABC patients (locally recurrent or metastatic) were 1:1 randomized to A (1 mg/d) plus G 250 mg/d or plus placebo (P). Patients who had prior treatment with an aromatase inhibitor in metastatic setting or with trastuzumab, anti-EGFR or anti-VEGF agents were excluded. Treatment was given until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity or patient withdrawal. Progression-free survival (PFS) rate at 1 year was assessed according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours, version 1.0. RESULTS: Of 108 planned patients, 71 were recruited (36 in A/G and 35 in A/P). The trial closed prematurely due to slow recruitment; 31 patients had prior chemotherapy and 53 prior endocrine therapy (all except one received tamoxifen); 60% in adjuvant and 16% in metastatic setting received tamoxifen; 59 patients had visceral disease. Median follow-up was 18 months. PFS rate at 1 year was 35% for A/G and 32% for A/P arm. Objective responses were six (22%) in the A/G and nine (28%) in the A/P arm. Median duration of response was 13.8 and 18.6 months in the A/G and A/P arms, respectively. Fatigue (35%), diarrhoea (31%), rash (32%), dry skin (27%), and arthralgia/myalgia (27%) were the commonest adverse events in the A/G arm. CONCLUSIONS: This phase II study, although prematurely closed, did not show a signal that adding G to A improves PFS at 1 year and its use is not supported. Gastrointestinal and skin toxicities were more pronounced with G resulting in premature therapy interruption in almost 1 in 3 patients ( number, NCT00066378)
