Beaumont Health System Research: Accelerated Breast Radiation Treatment Provides Same Outcomes after 10 Years
Date:11/18/2013

Royal Oak, MI (PRWEB) November 18, 2013

Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Mich. presented updated research results at this year’s American Society for Radiation Oncology conference. The outcomes showed that APBI, and traditional whole-breast irradiation are comparable at 10 years.

While radiation therapy has traditionally been delivered using whole breast irradiation, APBI is a proven alternative that shortens the length of treatment. The study concludes that at 10 years, there have been no differences in cancer recurring or spreading.

Anita Evans, an 87-year-old grandmother from Beverly Hills, was a participant in the study.

Evans was planning her 50th wedding anniversary celebration. She arranged for her husband, their children and grandchildren to spend an entire month in Florida. But in February 2000, during a routine physical examination, her doctor found a lump on her left breast.

“I didn’t have time for this. I’d been planning the trip for a while and arrangements had been made. I wanted to celebrate my wedding anniversary,” says Evans.

Evans was diagnosed with breast cancer, and soon after had the tumor, which was the size of a cherry pit, surgically removed. Shortly after the lumpectomy, she was referred to a radiation oncologist at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak who was leading a clinical trial of time-compressed radiation therapy after lumpectomy.

“At that time, Anita Evans was a perfect candidate for the five-day delivery of accelerated partial breast irradiation by brachytherapy, as opposed to whole breast irradiation delivered by the traditional six and a half weeks of external beam radiation therapy,” says Peter Chen, M.D., radiation oncologist, Beaumont, Royal Oak. “She fit the basic selection profile of an older patient greater than 50 years of age with a small tumor with no spread of cancer to the lymph nodes or elsewhere. We also wanted to try to do our best to ge
