#VisualAbstract: Overall Survival with Fulvestrant plus Anastrozole in Metastatic Breast Cancer

1. A randomized control trial of patients with hormone receptor-positive metastatic breast cancer compared survival outcomes between patients who received combined anastrozole and fulvestrant therapy versus those receiving anastrozole alone, concluded that the combined therapy led to improved disease progression-free survival and overall survival rates. 2. There were no significant Czytaj więcej…

Adjunctive ultrasonography for breast cancer screening likely not associated with better outcomes

1. In this large observational cohort study, screening ultrasonography with mammography was not associated with an improvement in cancer detection rates over mammography alone. 2. Positive predictive value of biopsy recommendation was significantly lower with screening ultrasonography plus mammography compared with mammography alone. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study Rundown: Czytaj więcej…
