9780124201538: Quest for the Cure: Reflections on the Evolution of Breast Cancer Treatment

This original fourteen chapter book is a brief, slightly autobiographic tale of medical oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, and breast cancer patients in a well-established cancer center in Texas, who pursued the goal of cure for breast cancer. The evolution of improved outcomes in the treatment of microscopic metastatic breast cancer is also the story of the development of adjuvant chemotherapy for post-operative breast disease. The adjuvant therapy of breast cancer came about with the realization that this malignancy, when diagnosed in most patients, had spread beyond the confines of the primary cancer. Patient histories in the form of Case Studies are used to illustrate certain issues. It is devoted to the development of the chemotherapeutic regimens that currently are used to treat patients with advanced breast cancer.

Review:

"In Texas, and perhaps in all the world, there are few cancer specialists as widely regarded as Dr. George Blumenschein. Dr. Blumenschein worked tirelessly to save my sister, Suzy, from this devastating disease. He brought the same dedication to my breast cancer treatment several years later. His book is important reading for anyone interested in understanding the sea of change in breast cancer treatment over the past few decades, made possible in part by one doctor's vision and advocacy for people with this disease." -Nancy G. Brinker, Founder, Susan G. Komen "An authoritative, accurate, entertaining, and up-to-date summary of the battle against breast cancer, from a leader in the development of our current ability to control the disease. While Dr. Blumenschein is able to present the clinical science, in an understandable way, he maintains the human element with patient anecdotes, which he presents alongside the science." -Emil J Freireich, M.D., D.Sc.(Hon.), Distinguished Teaching Professor, Director, Special Medical Education Programs Director, Adult Leukemia Research Program, The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center
