Emerging research heralds new era of breast cancer management

Aggressive research currently underway brings hope of dramatic advances in breast cancer management, according to a new review. Published in the March 15, 2007 issue of CANCER (http://www.interscience.wiley.com/cancer-newsroom), a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society, the review reveals that new approaches in breast cancer imaging, investigations into the timing of chemotherapy, and research on breast cancer vaccines may lead to exciting new nonsurgical tools for the physician treating breast cancer patients. These new tools may significantly alter current screening and treatment paradigms used by surgical oncologists, as well improving the care of patients.

Our understanding of breast cancer has changed since Dr. William Halsted started performing radical mastectomies in the 1880s. Advances in genetics, immunology, and cell biology have demonstrated that breast cancer is not a single disease, but a complex family of diseases that requires fine-tuning of treatment at the level of the each individual patient. The current multidisciplinary approach to breast cancer treatmentsurgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, targeted therapywill continue to evolve as our knowledge of the disease grows.

S. Eva Singletary, M.D., F.A.C.S, a surgeon from the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, discusses the latest research in breast cancer screening and management in this new review. "As we progress into the 21st century," she writes, "new treatment schema and devices outside of the surgical arena may significantly alter" current practices.

She finds that current research in the fields of radiology, drug therapeutics, and vaccine development has great potential to change breast cancer management. In radiology, 3-dimensional digital mammography, color doppler ultrasonography, and other more sophisticated technologies, such as magnet
