Firstly, the fear for the negative effects of chemotherapy should not be a reason to terminate pregnancy. Secondly, the fear for chemotherapy should not be a reason to delay maternal treatment. Thirdly, the fear for chemotherapy should not be a reason to decide to deliver the fetus prematurely in order to start chemo after delivery. Regarding the latter, we believe that children suffer more form the long term consequences of prematurity when compared to chemotherapy."

TalkAboutHealth Q&A of the month "What is the current status of using trastuzumab and lapatinib to treat HER-2-positive inflammatory breast cancers?" "The use of trastuzumab plus paclitaxel followed by trastuzumab plus FEC chemotherapy is the standard preoperative systemic therapy for HER2 positive primary inflammatory breast cancer. The role of lapatinib in primary inflammatory breast cancer is unknown despite that there are data suggesting lapatinib may have a response in trastuzumab-resistant HER2 positive metastatic breast cancer. For HER2+ metastatic breast cancer can be treated with lapatinib plus capecitabine, and trastuzumab plus chemotherapy" (Answer by Naoto Tada Ueno, Breast Cancer Translational Research Laboratory, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas, USA) Stay informed....
