Senology Newsletter Page 2 of 3 Editorial "Prognostic and predictive value of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes in node-positive breast cancer", Sherene Loi, Translational Breast Cancer Genomics Lab, Division of Research, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, East Melbourne, Victoria, Australia ""We and others have previously shown that an immune signal can influence prognosis and response to treatment, particularly “immunogenic therapies” in specific breast cancer subtypes, such as those estrogen receptor (ER)-negative and/or overexpressing the HER2/neu oncogene. To validate this further and determine immunity could be a clinically relevant biomarker, we evaluated the association between quantity of tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) in a breast cancer, prognosis and prediction of response to anthracyline chemotherapy in a large clinical trial in over 2000 primary breast cancers and long term follow-up data. We found that TILs were strongly associated with a good prognosis in the triple negative breast cancer (TNBC: ER, PGR, and HER2-negative) subtype - even node positive TNBCs had an excellent survival if they were observed to have high amounts of TILs at diagnosis (read more)".

At present, the advantage of CMF appears statistically evident in all subgroups of patients" (Bonadonna G et al.: "Combination chemotherapy as an adjuvant treatment in operable breast cancer ", N Engl J Med. 1976 Feb 19;294(8):405-10) Calendar of Events 5th IMPAKT Breast Cancer Conference, May 2-4, 2013, Brussels, Belgium Precision Medicines in Breast Cancer, May 9-10, 2013, London, UK 15th Milan Breast Cancer Conference, June 20-21, 2013, Milan, Italy 3rd World Congress on Cancer Science & Therapy, October 21-23, 2013, San Francisco, CA, USA - in partnership with Senology 9th Meet the Professor.
