Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed type of cancer and a
second leading cause of cancer death in women after lung cancer.
Despite their proven efficacy, classical therapies are, however,
unable to cure metastatic breast cancer and are often associated with
significant toxicity and side-effects, due to a wide spectrum of
action. During the last years, our increasing knowledge of the
molecular pathways underlying cancer development has led to the
introduction of new drugs, of which most are directed towards very
specific targets. Rather than to be used as single agents, these
“modern” compounds could ultimately be combined with classical
molecules.
Here are described nearly 150 drugs that are currently used in routine
therapy or are in clinical trials in breast cancer patients. From the
classical tamoxifen, fluorouracil, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin,
epirubin, docetaxel, paclitaxel…, to the more recently introduced
ixabepilone, lapatinib, vorinostat, everolimus, bevacizumab…, they
also include capecitabine, gemcitabine, trastuzumab, bevacizumab,
fulvestrant, aromatase inhibitors, cancer vaccines, inhibitors of
tumor-induced osteolysis, insulin-like growth factor-I receptor
inhibitors, poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP)-1 inhibitors, and many
others.
This book offers an insight into current developments of breast cancer
therapy, when classicism meets modernity.
