When Sujata 48, came to know about her Breast cancer, she was devastated. Since breast cancer leads to loss of hair, Nausea and painful treatment of Chemotherapy, Radiation, and Surgery. But an on-going trail called " TAILORx" can be the solution for her treatment, without Chemo.
Breast Cancer is the most common cancer among Indian Women. The incident rate of breast cancer is 25.8 per 1,00,000, though lower than few developed countries. Late detection is the primary cause of high mortality among breast cancer patients in India, which stands at 12.7 per 1,00,000. The age group which is greatly affected by this form of cancer is 41 -60 years age group. Though women with 60+ years are equally vulnerable to Breast cancer.
So what is TAILORx?
TAILORx stands for (Trial Assigning IndividuaLized Options for Treatment) is a clinical trial, conducted on more than 10,000 women with hormone receptor-positive, HER2-negative, axillary node-negative breast cancer—the most common type of breast cancer. The trail, which conducts 21 gene test, can predict recurrence of a most common form of breast cancer - receptive to estrogen and progesterone. The presence of hormone receptors in these tumors means that they respond to hormone therapy. Usually, the tumors are assigned a recurrence score of 0 - 100. Higher the score, greater the chance of cancer will recur, and Chemotherapy will reduce the risk of recurrence.70 % of the patients of breast cancer fall in range score of 11 - 25, which is usually, the challenge for doctors and patients, as it was uncertain in mid-range whether cancer will recur or not. The TAILORx was based upon test - Oncotype DX.
which examines the 21 genes from a patients biopsy sample to determine how
receptive they are. The simple outcome of the trail is that majority of women fighting breast cancer will not have to go for chemo as their receptive genes will respond to the TAILORx trails.
