Black Breast Cancer Survivors Face Higher Heart Failure Risk: Study
Date:3/7/2013

ggest that these women may require closer monitoring to detect the risk of heart failure earlier."

The researchers said their study is the first to reveal how often heart failure occurs in a large, representative sample of U.S. breast cancer survivors.

Breast cancer survivors are at increased risk for heart failure due to the use of anthracycline and trastuzumab, two of the most effective chemotherapy treatments. These drugs can damage the heart, depending on the amount a patient receives during treatment. Cardioprotective drugs might help prevent this damage, and their effectiveness should be studied, Valina-Toth said.

While the study uncovered a link involving race, breast cancer and heart failure, it didn't prove the existence of a cause-and-effect relationship. Findings presented at medical meetings are considered preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed medical journal.
