Doctors hope experimental drug combo will increase immune response to breast cancer

A new study finds some early stage breast cancer survivors will benefit just as well from endocrine therapy without the need for chemotherapy to prevent recurrence

A new study finds some early stage breast cancer survivors will benefit just as well from endocrine therapy without the need for chemotherapy to prevent recurrence

The center will target diseases like triple negative breast cancer, which aggressively impacts young, black and Latina women.

The U.S. National Cancer Institute said the therapy was still in experimental stages but it could change cancer treatment.

Targeted therapy drugs are mainly used for the treatment of cancer, and are mostly used along with another treatments such as chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation therapy.

According to first author Joseph Sparano of Montefiore Medical Centre in NY, "any woman with early-stage breast cancer 75 or younger should have the test and discuss the results" with her doctor.

More than 10,000 women, aged 18 to 75, were randomly assigned to receive chemotherapy followed by hormone therapy, or hormone therapy alone. It was funded by the National Cancer Institute, some foundations and proceeds from the US breast cancer postage stamp.

A new Indiana University School of Medicine research center will focus on aggressive and hard-to-treat breast cancers.

84 percent were alive without signs of cancer, so adding chemo made no difference.

Ghana FA dissolved by government amid corruption claims
The GFA dissolved", the Sports Ministed is quoted to have told Joy FM. Below is the full statement from the President of Ghana. The GFA said it would cooperate with any investigation.

The first study, described as the largest breast cancer treatment trial to date, found that the majority of women with a common form of breast cancer may be able to skip chemotherapy and its toxic, and often debilitating, side effects after surgery depending on their score on a genetic test. Such patients have been in "the gray zone, and we haven't known what to tell them", Kurian said. The woman said if not for a one-in-a-million shot experimental treatment, she would have died.

"That's basically when they cured me", said Judy, who has been cancer-free for 22 months. Although this study leaves certain groups of women with breast cancer without help (those with tumors too large or with cancer that has started to metastasize), the study is a step in the right direction to reduce the suffering of cancer patients.

As the Florida woman recalls, soon after she received the devasting news, she was approached by Dr. Steven Rosenberg from the National Institutes of Health.

They also found patients with stage one or two breast cancer in England are most likely to have no surgery as part of their treatment compared with other countries.

Janet Kramer-Mai, director of cancer support services at Erlanger, said patients who've watched friends or family members successfully undergo cancer treatment with chemo might be hesitant to accept the findings.

The result of the previously untested therapy has changed her life. "I think there's going to be some anxiety for those who have had experience".

The types of cells injected into Perkins were carefully chosen: A team analyzed her immune system to see what kinds of cells were best equipped to attack her cancer, according to the BBC.
