9780124201538: Quest for the Cure: Reflections on the Evolution of Breast Cancer Treatment

This original fourteen chapter book is a brief, slightly autobiographic tale of medical oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, and breast cancer patients in a well-established cancer center in Texas, who pursued the goal of cure for breast cancer. The evolution of improved outcomes in the treatment of microscopic metastatic breast cancer is also the story of the development of adjuvant chemotherapy for post-operative breast disease. The adjuvant therapy of breast cancer came about with the realization that this malignancy, when diagnosed in most patients, had spread beyond the confines of the primary cancer.

  • Patient histories in the form of Case Studies are used to illustrate certain issues.
  • Devoted to the development of the chemotherapeutic regimens that currently are used to treat patients with advanced breast cancer.
