GeparSixto Study Finds Benefit for Neoadjvuant Carboplatin in Triple-negative Breast Cancer

GeparSixto Study Finds Benefit for Neoadjvuant Carboplatin in Triple-negative Breast Cancer | Minimally Invasive Indeed | Scoop.it

"In patients with triple-negative breast cancer, the addition of carboplatin significantly improved the rate of pathologic complete response after neoadjuvant chemotherapy in a study by the German Breast Group (GBG)/Gynecologic Oncology Working Group–Breast (AGO-B) reported at the 2013 ASCO Annual Meeting.1

“An absolute increase of more than 20% was observed in patients with triple-negative breast cancer, but the HER2-positive subgroup did not benefit,” reported Gunter von Minckwitz, MD, PhD, Chairman of the German Breast Group and Professor of Gynecology at the University of Frankfurt.

Several neoadjuvant studies have suggested that triple-negative patients are sensitive to cisplatin and carboplatin, especially those with BRCA mutations. However, randomized trials incorporating platinums have produced mixed results."

"Results in Context

Dr. von Minckwitz concluded that while the carboplatin-containing regimen increased pathologic complete response, “the observed high efficacy of this regimen has to be weighed against a high rate of treatment discontinuations,” which occurred for 39% of patients treated with chemotherapy plus a targeted agent and 48% of those receiving the same plus ­carboplatin.

“We have to further analyze the adverse events for the different regimens, to find out which of the components is most responsible,” he suggested.

A biomarker program aims to identify subgroups of patients with triple-negative breast cancer who may obtain the greatest benefit from carboplatin. The investigators are also analyzing the results according to BRCA mutation status."

One in 70 million chance: Texas woman has 2 sets of identical twins

One in 70 million chance: Texas woman has 2 sets of identical twins | Minimally Invasive Indeed | Scoop.it

A Texas woman got a quadruple Valentine's Day gift this year, giving birth to four babies -- two sets of identical twins. The twins were not the result of fertility treatments, the hospital said. Each pair of twins shared a placenta, the hospital said. Identical twins result when a fertilized egg splits into two embryos. Twins occur in about 2% of all pregnancies. Of those, 30% are identical twins. The odds of having two sets of twins at once is about 1 in 70 million, said Dr. Alan Penzias, associate professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive biology at Harvard Medical School.
