Een case studie toont een langdurige complete remissie van een 62 jarige vrouw met veruitgezaaide borstkanker in lymfklieren, longen en botten bereikt na 13 maanden na een combinatie behandeling met 5'-DFUR = 5'-deoxy-5-fluorouridine en MPA = medroxyprogesterone acetate. Deze complete remissie duurde tot aan de follow update van drie jaar, en was toen zes jaar en vijf maanden na de eerste diagnose van borstkanker.

[A case of stage IV breast cancer showing long-term complete response to combination therapy with 5'-DFUR and MPA] [Article in Japanese] Kihara M, Matsusaka K, Miyauchi A, Maeda M. Second Dept. of Surgery, Kagawa Medical University. We report a 62-year-old woman with supraclavicular lymph node, pleural and bone metastases from breast cancer showing a long-term complete response to combination therapy with 5'-DFUR and MPA. A large amount of pleural effusion was drained followed by administration of ADM, which improved the amount of effusion. Treatment with CAF and TAM decreased tumor size, but CAF was abandoned due to severe leukopenia. Mastectomy was performed for local control. However, levels of tumor markers increased progressively. Administration of CMF was tried, but tumor markers continued to increase. Therefore, combined chemoendocrine therapy with 5'-DFUR and MPA was undertaken. Levels of tumor markers normalized and a complete response was obtained 13 months after starting this combination therapy. There are no further metastatic lesions evident, and this status has been consistently maintained for more than three years (six years and five months after diagnosis of breast cancer). There were no significant side effects of this combination therapy except for mild weight gain and moon face. This combination regimen with 5'-DFUR and MPA is considered useful as a second-line treatment for advanced breast cancer. Publication Types: Case Reports PMID: 9838917 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]
