New positive data for Kisqali combination in advanced breast cancer

Dutch cancer survival rates have risen sharply since the 1960s

Ribociclib is beneficial for pre- and perimenopausal women with hormone receptor positive (HR+), human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative (HER2-) advanced breast cancer (ABC), according to a study presented at the annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, held from December 5 to 9 in Texas. Data from early trastuzumab trials showed that those HER2-low patients derived similar benefit from the agent as HER2-positive patients, so the researchers conducted a large randomized trial to test this possibility.

Hershman's team wondered if the ancient practice of acupuncture might help.

"The results of the PANACEA study are very encouraging", stated Dr Sherene Loi, PhD, associate professor at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne, Australia, who works with the International Breast Cancer Study Group (IBCSG). The BPI is a self-administered 14-item questionnaire created to assess pain on a scale from zero to 10, where higher scores indicate more pain.

The patients assigned true acupuncture or sham acupuncture had twice-weekly sessions for six weeks; and then once a week for an additional six weeks. Women taking Kisqali also had a clinically meaningful improvement in pain symptoms as early as eight weeks and this improvement was sustained.

Amalgamated Bank Has $6.34 Million Holdings in Monsanto Company (MON)

After six weeks, patients in the true acupuncture group reported much lower pain scores than those in either the fake acupuncture or waiting list groups, Hershman's team reported. The most common adverse event reported among those receiving true and sham acupuncture was bruising.

"What this is going for is trying to find a way to screen women for breast cancer that is going to include more than just a standardized for the whole population", says Sanford Physician and Principal Investigator on the WISDOM study Dr. Andrea Kaster. "There are so few side effects [to acupuncture] and it's non-addictive".

Breastcancer.org has more on aromatase inhibitors. That's what we would like to see, but, again, you can't really predict that.
