The study involved patients who have been diagnosed with untreated metastatic triple-negative breast cancer. It's approved for bladder and one type of lung cancer. "All these factors work at increasing the chances of breast cancer", Stress and obesity are other factors that can increase the chances of having breast cancer.

With Roche's Tecentriq trailing immunotherapies from Merck and Bristol-Myers Squibb in the main form of lung cancer, Chief Executive Severin Schwan is pursuing smaller but still lucrative treatment areas where he can gain an approval head start.

The term triple-negative refers to the tumors' lack of sensitivity to the hormones estrogen and progesterone, and their lack of a protein called HER2, which is a target of treatment.

The new treatment combines the immunotherapy drug atezolizumab and traditional chemotherapy.

The study was funded by the drug's manufacturer, Pfizer.

The data will be presented at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) 2018 Congress on October 22, 2018 from 9:15 - 9:30 a.m. CEST (Abstract LBA53; Hall A1 - Room 17). An increasing number of breast cancers are detected in the 25-40 years age group.


Students of the Kindergarten Starters (KGS) school in Garhoud also donated their hair for breast cancer patients.

This year, consider stocking up on some of the most popular products in the industry that also happen to benefit people in need. While tobacco does not lead directly to breast cancer, it can lead to certain benign breast diseases. They say raising awareness is crucial because the key to successfully battling breast cancer is early detection.

In the new study, the key to success seems to have been giving chemotherapy along with immunotherapy. It's an antibody that attaches to the cancer cell.

New guidelines for gene testing for those at risk for triple-negative breast cancer. Once that occurs, the outlook is grim, with many patients surviving 18 months or less. Previous year alone, half a million rand was raised. The combination also significantly reduced the risk of disease worsening or death compared to chemotherapy alone, with median progression-free survival at 7 months versus 5.5 months. The difference was not statistically significant. "Finding out why those patients do so much better than others is going to be one of the important topics for future research".

That's a big difference, but it will take more time to see if there's a reliable way to predict benefit, said Dr. Jennifer Litton of the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.
