#ALT# Importance of ER+ Patient Profiling to Determine MBC Therapy Options

ER+ patient profiling allows physicians to determine which metastatic breast cancer (MBC) therapy options are most appropriate for the patient. Most importantly for the management of breast cancer is the fact that ER+ breast cancers exhibit stronger clinical responses to hormonal treatment.

Breast cancer is among the leading causes of death among women between 25 and 65 years, with an expected incidence of 1 in 8 women in most countries. Screening and early diagnosis are still the best way to reduce the number of breast cancer deaths.

Breast cancer begins when the cells in the breast begin to grow out of control. The cells form a tumor, which can become malignant if they invade and spread to surrounding tissues. Like any other cancers, breast cancer has many risk factors that can’t be changed, like family history.
 
 Eating chicken rather than red meat could lower breast cancer risk
 
Eating chicken rather than red meat could lower breast cancer riskRed meat refers to the flesh obtained from cows, pigs and lambs, that is, beef, pork and lamb/mutton respectively. These contain more of the muscle protein called myoglobin which carries oxygen to the muscle tissue, similar to hemoglobin in the blood.

Breast cancer patients with mental health conditions have higher opioid use, reduced survivalElderly women battling breast cancer who have anxiety, depression or other mental health conditions are more likely to use opioids and more likely to die, a new study led by the University of Virginia School of Medicine has found.
 
 
 Highly sensitive blood test may help doctors tailor better breast cancer treatments
 
Highly sensitive blood test may help doctors tailor better breast cancer treatmentsA new, highly sensitive blood test is one of the first to successfully monitor breast cancer patients with early stage disease and could be up to 100 times more sensitive than existing tests, according to a study published in Science Translational Medicine today (Wednesday).

AI system could help better detect and diagnose breast cancerUCLA researchers have developed an artificial intelligence system that could help pathologists read biopsies more accurately and to better detect and diagnose breast cancer.
 
 
 Head-to-head comparison of three breast cancer drugs reveals important differences
 
Head-to-head comparison of three breast cancer drugs reveals important differencesEvery year, more than 250,000 women in the U.S. are diagnosed with breast cancer. When detected early, patients with the most common form--which tests positive for hormone receptors (HR+) and negative for the HER2 receptor--usually respond well to treatment.
 
 
 Electromagnetic fields may prevent spread of breast cancer cells, study finds
 
Electromagnetic fields may prevent spread of breast cancer cells, study findsElectromagnetic fields might help prevent some breast cancers from spreading to other parts of the body, new research has found. The study showed that low intensity electromagnetic fields hindered the mobility of specific breast cancer cells by preventing the formation of long, thin extensions at the edge of a migrating cancer cell.
