Onderstaande case studie beschrijft behandelingsprotocol bij 49 jarige vrouw met veruitgezaaide borstkanker, in wervels en ruggegraat, die ondanks hormoon negatieve status toch erg goed reageert op combinatie behandeling met 5'-DFUR = 5'-deoxy-5-fluorouridine en MPA = medroxyprogesterone acetate. De onderzoekers melden nu al vier jaar stabiele ziekte met uitstekende kwaliteit van leven.

[Successful combination therapy with 5'-DFUR and MPA for breast cancer with spinal and vertebral metastases] [Article in Japanese] Otani S, Toyota N, Nozaka K, Wakatsuki T, Takebayashi M, Kamasako A, Tanida O, Hashiguchi H, Ohgami Y, Hirooka Y. Division of Organ Surgical Oncology, Tottori University, Faculty of Medicine. We report a case of breast cancer with spinal and vertebral lesions. A 49-year-old premenopausal woman with a left breast tumor was admitted to our hospital for acute weakness of the lower limbs and dysuria. She could neither stand nor walk. The tumor in the left breast was 5.0 cm in diameter with skin ulcer, and it was diagnosed as breast cancer. Magnetic resonance (MR) image showed multiple vertebral and spinal metastases from breast cancer. Chemotherapy, consisting of cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin and 5-fluorouracil (CAF) was initiated. Her symptoms dramatically changed for the better. She became able to walk and urinate. We performed palliative mastectomy after 3 cycles of CAF therapy. Histopathological findings of breast tumor showed scirrhous carcinoma. Although the estrogen and progesterone receptor status of primary tumor was negative, chemo-endocrine therapy, consisting of medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) and doxifluridine (5'-DFUR) was given as daily therapy, and vertebral and spinal lesions were reduced. Her condition has remained stable for 4 years. For patients with metastatic breast cancer, complete remission is uncommon, and disease stabilization is a reasonable goal of successful therapy. In this respect, therapy with CAF, followed by MPA and 5'-DFUR, was successful in the patient. PMID: 15628761 [PubMed - in process]
