Breast Cancer Genetic Test May Help Women Forgo Chemotherapy

"With results of this groundbreaking study, we now can safely avoid chemotherapy in about 70% of patients who are diagnosed with the most common form of breast cancer," claims lead trial investigator Kathy Albain, M.D., the Huizenga Family Endowed Chair in Oncology Research at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine, who is co-author of the NEJM paper. The prospective TAILORx study was designed to help to discover whether chemotherapy is beneficial for women with a mid-range recurrence score of 11 to 25, as well as to prospectively confirm that a low recurrence score of 0–10 is associated with a low rate of distant recurrence if patients receive endocrine therapy without adjuvant chemotherapy. The trial results showed that for women in the intermediate recurrence score group, endocrine therapy was no less effective than hormone therapy plus chemotherapy at prolonging disease-free survival.[89]

Research finds outcome disparities for black women with...

Black women with a certain type of early-stage breast cancer had a 52 percent higher risk of dying when compared to white women, according to a research presented Thursday at an international breast cancer symposium in San Antonio. When compared against all trial participants, black women overall had 4 percent higher risk of dying or experiencing a recurrence of their cancer. "Higher recurrence and overall mortality rates were observed for blacks versus whites and others despite all were enrolled in the same trial and treated with the same contemporary cancer care," Albain said. As part of the trial, breast cancer patients received treatment based on a scored genetic analysis of their tumors that determined their risk for cancer recurrence.[131415]
