Many Breast Cancer Patients May Not Need Chemotherapy
08 June, 2018, 10:46
Dr Epstein, a clinical oncologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre in NY, said the two studies show "the anti-inflammatory benefits of a relatively cheap, well-tolerated supplement".
Dr Alistair Ring, a consultant at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London, thinks that 3,000 women a year in the United Kingdom will not need chemotherapy anymore because of this trial.
However an estimated 25% of patients stop within two years because they can not endure the side effects, lead author Dr Sherry Shen, of the New York Presbyterian Hospital, said.
The study was supported in part by the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Komen Foundation, and the Breast Cancer Research Stamp. Some study leaders consult for breast cancer drugmakers or for the company that makes the gene test. When chemo is used now, it's sometimes for shorter periods or lower doses than it once was.
In a new analysis, researchers examined 9,717 women between the ages of 18 and 75 with early-stage breast cancer that had not spread to lymph nodes. Doctors know that most don't need it, but evidence is thin on who can forgo it.
In the USA, those who score low on the test - 0-10 - are already told to skip chemotherapy after their tumours are removed and they receive hormone therapy.
"70% of women with the most common form of early stage breast cancer could be treated safely with just surgery and hormone therapy."
At nine years, the two treatment groups had similar rates of invasive disease-free survival (83.3% in the endocrine therapy group and 84.3% in the chemoendocrine therapy group). In contrast, for patients with a low recurrence score (0-10), the benefits of chemotherapy are unlikely to outweigh the risks and toxicity.

The researchers said ongoing clinical trials are obtaining additional information on the clinical usefulness of the 21-gene assay in women with hormone receptor-positive breast cancer and positive axillary nodes, and evaluating the clinical usefulness of the 50-gene assay in this context. "And this is the promise of personalized medicine, and it's arrived", Agus said. The money was used to pay for the gene test, which costs more than $4,000 per person.
Testing solved a big problem of figuring out who needs chemo, said Dr. Harold Burstein of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.
The patients affected by these new study results are those with estrogen-sensitive breast cancers who also test negative for the HER2 gene.
Dr. Jennifer Litton at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, agreed, but said, "Risk to one person is not the same thing as risk to another. Towards the end, my eyes would water", she said. Other folks need chemo for the tiniest possibility of advantage.
