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.
  • Devoted to the development of the chemotherapeutic regimens that currently are used to treat patients with advanced breast cancer.

About the Author:

George R. Blumenschein, M.D. led a team of brilliant young researchers at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center who established Adriamycin as a mainstay of contemporary breast cancer treatment regimens. This book is intended to empower interested individuals by chronicling the development and explaining the rationale underlying contemporary multimodal breast cancer therapy and by providing illustrative patient histories.

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
