Medical News: ECCO-ESMO: Synchronous Chemoradiation Cuts Breast Cancer Relapse - in Meeting Coverage, ECCO-ESMO from MedPage Today: "STOCKHOLM -- Local recurrence in early breast cancer occurred 35% less often in women who received synchronous chemoradiation rather than sequential therapy, long-term follow-up data from a large clinical trial showed.
The five-year incidence of local recurrence was 2.8% with synchronous therapy, with radiation during or between cycles of chemotherapy, and 5.1% among women who received adjuvant chemotherapy followed by radiotherapy. Synchronous therapy also shortened the overall duration of treatment.
The findings were reported here at the European Multidisciplinary Cancer Congress, formerly known as the joint Congress of the European Cancer Organization and the European Society for Medical Oncology (ECCO-ESMO)."
