How Does Chemotherapy Treat Breast Cancer?
This week Reactions takes a look at the the chemistry and science of how chemotherapy and other cancer treatments work concerning breast cancer. Breast cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. Fortunately, the rate at which we’re learning about this disease means patients have a lot more treatment options and far better chances of survival than they did 100 years ago. In observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Reactions describes what’s changed about how we treat breast cancer and what patients can expect in the future.

Researchers from Stanford University will test the therapy in about 35 people with lymphoma by the end of the year, according to SFGate, a local news outlet in San Francisco. The treatment stimulates the body's immune system to attack cancer cells. In studies in mice with various cancers — including lymphoma, breast cancer and colon cancer — the treatment eliminated cancer tumors in 87 out of 90 mice, even when the tumors had spread to other parts of the body, the researchers said."

2 New Cancer Treatments That Give Patients Hope Again
We are living in the lucky days of cancer research. Two revolutions in cancer therapy — one successfully tested by President Jimmy Carter — are giving patients of all kinds a new hope. His latest book is "The Lucky Years: How to Thrive in the Brave New World of Health" (http://davidagus.com/books/the-lucky-...) Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/david-agus-on-cancer-as-a-manageable-condition Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript - Cancer, it's a word that if I say it to somebody you have cancer this is like hitting you on the head with a club. It's a life-changing event no matter how you look at it. My goal is not to be aggressive as possible and kill everything, my job is to make cancer a livable manageable condition so that you live with cancer rather than dying with cancer. And this really is or are the lucky years with regard to cancer. I want to talk about two kinds of fundamental shifts that are happening now. The first is what we call immunotherapy. When cancer cells happen they have a don't eat me signal on the surface. Well, we now have the ability, and there are drugs that are approved that block that don't eat meat signal and allow the immune system to come in and basically eat the cancer. We've seen this work with a remarkable 90+ year individual named Jimmy Carter, our former president. And we've seen it work with many other patients. So cancers like skin cancer melanoma, like kidney cancer, some types of lung cancer and others have had some pretty dramatic results with this immunotherapy and it's only getting better. We're learning how to harness the power of our own immune system to attack cancer literally more on a daily basis. Number two is what we call precision or personalized medicine. And they mean the same thing. And there's a lot of confusion out there some call it precision medicine or personalize, they're the same thing. And what it means is that I can now, for example if you have cancer, I can take a piece of your cancer and sequence the DNA and look at what genes are turned on and what genes are turned off and hopefully develop a way to turn off the driving genes. And it works. And it works in many of the patients, not all. In many of the patients we don't yet know the drivers. We don't have drugs to turn off every gene, but I can sequence the DNA of the cancer and develop a personalized therapy of that patient. So there may be a drug that was FDA approved for breast cancer, that gene is driving lung cancer and I can use it in that patient. Read Full Transcript Here: http://goo.gl/K0IL8A.

Best Way To Destroy Breast Cancer Tumors Without Chemo
Scientist in Europe have found a leap forward for breast cancer. One in eight women will develop breast cancer at some point in their lives, but a recent study in Amsterdam have found a way to get rid of it once and for all. Breast Cancer Breakthrough Research presented by Professor Nigel Bundred at the European Breast Cancer Conference in Amsterdam explained that they had tested the effectiveness of a pair of drugs known as Herceptin (a.k.a trastuzumab) and Lapatinib. These drugs are already used in breast cancer treatments, but this is the first time they were combined and used before surgery and chemotherapy. They found out that if these two drugs were combined together, they were able to eliminate some types of breast cancer in just 11 days. The study, which was funded by Cancer Research UK, proposed to use these drugs to combat a protein called HER2 (human epidermal growth factor receptor 2), which affects the growth and division of cancer cells. It’s also more likely to return than other cancer types. What also makes this treatment so appealing is the fact that it eliminates the need for chemotherapy and surgery. It also has some side effects like hair loss, vomiting and fatigue, making treatment less impactful on the body. Chemo is not entirely effective, nor is it the right choice for a lot of patients, so any alternatives are welcomed. Study Results 257 women with HER2 positive breast cancer were selected for the study. Half of them were put on the drug combo while the other half were a control group. After two weeks, 11% of the participants receiving the combo had no cancer cells remaining, while another 17% saw drastically reduced tumors. The control group, which received just Herceptin, saw none of the participants cancer-free and only 3% experiencing a reduction in tumor size. Clearly, the combination of drugs was powerful. Unfortunately, Herceptin's licensing only allows it to be available in conjunction with chemotherapy. Hopefully, the results of this study can change that.

Stanford CANCER VACCINE. Stanford University Cancer research had a breakthrough
UPDATE: As of March 29th this treatment is now in human trials. Stanford CANCER VACCINE. Stanford University Cancer research had a breakthrough. Researchers from Stanford university have developed what is being called a vaccine for cancer. This cancer research breakthrough shows promise because in lab tests it successfully eliminated cancer in 87 out of 90 test mice. With a second round of injections it also cured the other 3 mice. Not only that but it also kept the mice cancer free. This treatment can be used in tumor removal before and after to not only treat the cancer but to keep it from coming back. This cancer research institute may have found a prostate cancer cure, breast cancer cure and all other cancer cure 2018. This cancer research 2018 is already in human trials and as an immunotherapy cancer treatment it doesn't have all the immunotherapy side effects of say immunotherapy prostate cancer can have by targeting the precise type of cancer so it doesnt ravage the body. So as immunotherapy treatment 2018 goes this is looking to be a good year.

Less Chemotherapy for Breast Cancer: The TAILORx Results
We teach you about the TAILORx clinical trial results and how this information may save many women in the future from chemotherapy. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ _________________________________ Questions for your Breast Surgeon and Medical Oncologist: *Do I qualify for an Oncotype DX genomic test? *If so, will you order genomic testing for me? *What if I have an "Intermediate" result? *Do you follow the "TAILORx" trial recommendations? *Would you order a genomic test before I see a medical oncologist? What does the TAILORx Clinical Trial results mean to me? On June 3rd, 2018 the results of the largest breast cancer trial reported results that help us better determine who MAY benefit or MAY NOT benefit from chemotherapy in early stage, favorable breast cancers. The results help patients and physicians better interpret the results from the genomic assay, Oncotype DX, which is commonly used in the United States. The trial concludes that most patients with an "Intermediate Recurrence Score" result may avoid chemotherapy. The results were also released for publication by the New England Journal of Medicine. Journal Article Link: https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa1804710 Video Outlining the TAILORx Clinical Trial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orwPgT0ZP_0&t=14s What is a genomic test? These sophisticated tests are performed on a small sample of cancer tissue in appropriate patients with early stage breast cancer. Genomic tests are usually ordered after surgery when the pathology report is finalized. It measures unique aspects of the tumor to determine if a patient will benefit from chemotherapy in addition to hormonal therapy. Such “genomic assays” developed over the last decade are a dramatic advance in breast cancer care. The Oncotype DX assay by Genomic Health Inc. is the most utilized genomic assay of those available in the United States. Who should consider a genomic test? Patients who have small “Estrogen receptor positive” (ER+) and “HER2 receptor negative” (HER2-) tumors and no evidence of cancer in their lymph nodes may benefit from an Oncotype DX assay. The purpose of this test is to better identify people who do and do not benefit from chemotherapy. The decision to undergo chemotherapy is a complicated one. Your medical oncologist will examine multiple factors to help determine if you will benefit from chemotherapy. The NCCN Guidelines, listed in the website links below, outline in much greater detail recommendations for the use of genomic tests. An Oncotype DX test can be instrumental in this decision for many patients. You may qualify for a Genomic Assay if… You have early stage cancer (Stage I or II) Your tumor is Estrogen receptor positive (ER+) Your tumor is Her2 receptor negative (HER2-) No cancer was found in your lymph nodes You are willing to consider having chemotherapy You are healthy enough to undergo chemotherapy How is chemotherapy tailored to patients? Genomic breast cancer tests are a leap forward in our ability to “look inside” breast cancer cells. Sophisticated breast cancer care is based upon the principle of providing maximal benefit from the least toxic therapy. Newly diagnosed breast cancer patients deserve the best information available to decide whether they need chemotherapy. Take our video lesson on “Will I Need Chemotherapy?“ (here) to understand the general concepts. Genomics is a promising and rapidly developing field. Take Home Message: Make sure to ask both your breast surgeon and medical oncologist if a genomic assay might play a role in your treatment decisions. For appropriate patients, these tests should be considered only one piece of the many “pieces of the puzzle” in deciding treatment decisions about chemotherapy and hormonal therapy.

Medical Edge: Breakthrough in breast cancer
CINCINNATI (Liz Bonis) -- Researchers recently discovered a breakthrough in early detection of breast cancer. It's a new gene now associated with breast cancer. Lori Staud, a local mother, was diagnosed with breast cancer just after Mother‚„s Day this past year. She chose to have a double mastectomy and chemotherapy. She tested negative for traditional Braca I and II mutations usually associated with breast cancer and positive for this newly discovered gene mutation in the Palb2 gene. Dr. Jennifer Manders, a breast cancer surgeon, said, "So this is a gene that's been identified that predisposes women and men to breast and pancreatic cancer." According to the New England Journal of Medicine, the Palb2 mutation gives women a one in three chance of developing breast cancer by age 70. The risk is higher in women who have a family history of this disease which is also what determines which women should be tested for it. Dr. Manders continued, "For example, if she has multiple family members with breast and ovarian cancer

Thousands of breast cancer patients could be spared chemo
Chemotherapy won’t be necessary for thousands of women after a breakthrough in breast cancer research. A trial of more than 10,000 women with the most common form of early breast cancer found the treatment was unnecessary for many after surgery. The findings will lead to a ‘fundamental change’ in the way the disease is treated, a leading oncologist said, with an estimated 3,000 to 5,000 UK women likely to avoid chemotherapy every year as a result. Charity Breast Cancer Care said it was a ‘life-changing breakthrough’. More than 20,000 women in the UK are diagnosed with hormone-receptor positive, HER2-negative, node-negative breast cancer annually. Around half of these patients would historically receive chemotherapy after having surgery to remove their tumour, to prevent recurrence of the disease. However, the results of the TAILORx trial show that only 30% of women with this particular form of early-stage breast cancer benefit from the treatment. The study, presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) annual meeting in Chicago, is thought to be the largest breast cancer treatment trial ever conducted. Dr Alistair Ring, consultant medical oncologist at the Royal Marsden NHS Hospital, in London, said: ‘I think this is a fundamental change in the way we treat women with early-stage breast cancer and will lead to a considerable number of women no longer needing to have chemotherapy. Nine-year survival rates were 93.9% without chemotherapy and 93.8% with chemotherapy, the study found. Dr Ring said the trial’s reuslts would likely have an immediate impact on UK practice and represented a significant shake-up in the treatment of early-stage breast cancer. It is a significant step because it is about avoiding a treatment that, for most people diagnosed with cancer, is what they all fear being suggested to have,’ he said. I, as an oncologist on Monday in clinic, will offer less chemotherapy that will not be of benefit to patients and that is very reassuring to know that when I am offering patients chemotherapy they are likely to benefit from it. Rachel Rawson, clinical nurse specialist at Breast Cancer Care, said: ‘This life-changing breakthrough is absolutely wonderful news as it could liberate thousands of women from the agony of chemotherapy. Every day, women with certain types of breast cancer face the terrible dilemma of whether or not to have the treatment, without hard facts about the benefit for them. Side effects, such as hair loss, severe pain and infertility, can be utterly devastating and linger long after they walk out the hospital doors.

My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. After her diagnosis, she underwent a mastectomy followed by many rounds of chemotherapy. I can still remember seeing my mom’s hair fall out and thinking she had aged 10 years in the few weeks following chemo. Praise God, after all of her treatments, she was diagnosed as being “cancer-free” and healthy. But for the next several years, she was sicker than she’d ever been in her life. Then, a terrible thing happened. She was diagnosed with cancer again. My mom started following an all-natural plan. And after only four months, the tumors on her lungs shrunk significantly. One year after that, she was again diagnosed as being “cancer-free.” It’s now been 10 years. My mom recently turned 60 years old and she is in the best shape of her life. I want to be clear: I am not claiming that what we did with my mother is a cancer cure. But I believe these natural therapies, either used by themselves or in conjunction with conventional medical treatments, may support the body in the healing process.

Blueberries: A Triple Threat Against Triple-Negative Breast Cancers
City of Hope cancer center researchers and study authors Shiuan Chen, Ph.D., and Lynn Adams, Ph.D. discuss the results of a research study on the effects of blueberries on breast cancer. Chen, research fellow Lynn S. Adams, Ph.D., and their colleagues applied blueberry extracts to TNBC cell cultures and found that blueberry extract not only inhibits proliferation and mobility in TNBC cells, it also led to cell death (apoptosis) at over twice the rate of untreated cells. Chen, Adams and others then tested blueberry extracts effectiveness in laboratory animal models. The researchers found that the blueberry groups TNBC tumor weight was 70 percent lighter than the control group and it also exhibited significantly lower proliferation and higher apoptosis activity. ################ CONNECT WITH US WEBSITE: http://www.cityofhope.org FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/cityofhope TWITTER: http://www.twitter.com/cityofhope YOUTUBE: http://www.youtube.com/cityofhopeonline FLICKR: http://www.flickr.com/cityofhope BLOG: http://breakthroughs.cityofhope.org and MORE: http://www.cityofhope.org/getsocial ################ ABOUT CITY OF HOPE City of Hope is a leading research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases.

James Genomics Testing Leads to Personalized Breast Cancer Treatment
Genomics are giving James doctors blueprints for better breast cancer treatment. James breast oncologists are using genomic data—a kind of “blueprint for how cells function—to develop personalized treatment programs for breast cancer patients. Through genetic testing, our doctors are able to identify markers—like BRCA mutations—that can influence cancer growth and behavior, leading to treatment regimens with components and durations tailored to individual patients. “In the past, we thought of breast cancer, I think, as a cookie cutter. We gave everyone chemotherapy, then an estrogen-positive, anti-estrogen therapy,” The James’ Dr. Nicole Williams says. “Now we’re using genomic testing, for example, in estrogen-positive women, to see if they may or may not benefit from chemotherapy. So, we’re personalizing breast cancer more on an individual basis.”

IORT - A Breakthrough Treatment for Breast Cancer
Toni, a patient at the Los Angeles Center for Women's Health, decided on a revolutionary new treatment for her breast cancer -- intraoperative radiation therapy (or IORT). IORT delivers a concentrated dose of radiation to a tumor site immediately after a tumor is removed, helping to destroy the microscopic tumor cells that may be left behind. Typically, standard radiation therapy involves five days of treatment per week, for a total of five to six weeks for some patients. With IORT, radiation oncologists like Dr. Dennis Holmes can deliver a similar dose of radiation in a single treatment session, while also preserving more healthy tissue. This helps to reduce side effects and the time spent going back and forth to the hospital for radiation treatments. Dignity Health, California Hospital Medical Center is thrilled to offer this treatment option to our patients. For more information, please visit http://www.lacwh.org/Our_Services/Breast_Health/231841
