"This study is extremely exciting for three reasons," said Dr. Holmes. "First, it was a 'deep dive' into the molecular analysis of breast cancer, but it was carried out in the patients' own oncologist's office close to their home by US Oncology Research network doctors, not at a university or tertiary care center. Second, by biopsying the tumor before and after two weeks of treatment with a HER2-blocking medication, we were able to see changes in the levels of molecules that, in the end, correlated with whether the tumor completely disappeared or was resistant to the treatment. In the future, we hope testing each patient's tumor this way will tell us which treatment has the best chance of cure for each unique patient. Third, the patients in our trial were passionately committed as our partners in the research effort to cure breast cancer. The extra biopsies were a gift of their time and tissue, and the many new findings in our study are a tribute to them. Curing breast cancer, as with many other areas of life, 'takes a village.'"
