The primary analysis of the phase III CALGB 40601 trial found that pathologic complete response to dual HER2 blockade was not statistically higher than anti-HER2 monotherapy. However, there was a high level of intertumoral heterogeneity, and patients with the HER2-enriched subtype had a high pCR with both single and dual anti-HER2 therapy.
Jason Matney, PhD, clinical assistant professor, Physics and Computing Division, Department of Radiation Oncology, UNC School of Medicine, discusses a prospective assessment of deep inspiration breath hold to prevent radiation-associated cardiac perfusion defects in patients with left-sided breast cancer.
