Imaging and Tumor Mark Tests to Monitor Metastatic HR Positive, HER2 Negative Breast Cancer

Randomized Non-Inferiority Trial Comparing Overall Survival of Patients Monitored With Serum Tumor Marker Directed Disease Monitoring (STMDDM) Versus Usual Care in Patients With Metastatic Hormone Receptor Positive Breast Cancer (SWOG-S1703)

Purpose: To study if blood tests that look for tumor markers are as good as or better than imaging with PET and/or CT scans (the current standard of care) to determine if a tumor is growing.

Who is this for?: People with metastatic (stage IV) hormone positive (ER+ and/or PR+), HER2 negative (HER2-) breast cancer who are planning to have first line treatment for metastatic disease or have started treatment within the past month, and have at least one elevated tumor marker.

MRI-Based Imaging Technique to Distinguish Recurrent Brain Metastases from Radiation Damage

Treatment Response Assessment Maps (TRAMs) in the Delineation of Radiation Necrosis From Tumor Progression After Stereotactic Radiation in Patients With Brain Metastases: A Prospective Study

Purpose: To study whether Treatment Response Assessment Maps, a brain imaging technique, can help distinguish between a metastatic recurrence and tissue damage from prior radiation.

Who is this for?: People with metastatic (stage IV) breast cancer that has spread to the brain (brain metastases). Participants must have had a metastatic recurrence at least 4 months after radiation to the same site in the brain and planning to undergo surgery. View full eligibility criteria
