研究发现,过度改变患有乳腺癌的女性可能会造成更高的伤害

发现患有乳腺癌的老年女性(超过70多个)的新研究可能是有害的,而不会改善存活或复发。这项研究发表在贾马网络开放。

“As a breast surgeon, I want to give my patients the best chance of survival with the best quality of life,” said senior author Priscilla McAuliffe, M.D., Ph.D., surgical oncologist at UPMC Hillman Cancer Center and attending surgeon in the Department of Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine via a新闻稿。“然而,我们发现老年患者早期乳腺癌的过度处理可能实际上造成伤害,同时没有提高复发或生存率。”

研究人员评估了来自2010年至2018年的70岁以上70岁以上的妇女的数据,从2010年到2018年被诊断出患有Er-pher阳性的Her2阴性乳腺癌。该数据是从15个社区和学术遗址获得的,并通过UPMC网络癌症进行评估注册表。
调查人员观察了两种程序的疗效:Sentinel淋巴结活检(SLNB)和放射疗法(RT)。他们发现,70岁以上患者的SLNB和RT程序的数量分别为65.3%和54.4%。重要的是,研究人员观察到,对于未经治疗的患者治疗,乳腺癌复发或存活率保持不变。

“This study is an example of how we can use big data to deliver on the promise of precision medicine—getting the right treatment to the right patient at the right time,” said Adrian Lee, Ph.D., investigator at the Women’s Cancer Research Center at UPMC Hillman Cancer Center and Magee Womens Research Institute, and director of the UPMC/Pitt Institute of Precision Medicine. “Sometimes—as it happens to be in this case—that could mean deciding not to provide a certain treatment to ensure better care for the patient.”
