It impacts on her trust on her body, her future, her ability to cope with the struggle to survive. It reshapes her priorities. Several biological factors modulate the final outcome: her age at diagnosis, recurrences, pregnancy-related problems during or after breast cancer and infertility, the potential appearance of lymphedema, and side-effects of surgery conservative vs radical , radio or chemotherapy and hormonotherapy tamoxifen and aromatase inhibitors. Iatrogenic premature menopause, with its cohort of damages secondary to the chronic loss of estrogens on the brain, on the sensoryorgans, on the pathophysiology of sexual response and on the function of the pelvic floor, may add a further burden to the recovery process, from the physical, emotional and relational point of view, and should be competently addressed.
The Pink Affair (Benefiting TurningPoint Breast Cancer Rehabilitation)

The kinase inhibitor has shown promise in a handful of patients with Ros1 and NTRK-driven tumours, including some who have failed prior therapies; there is a substantial need for new options for patients who fail on front-line treatments like Xalkori. The concerns about repotrectinib would arguably matter less if Turning Point was focusing squarely on patients whose tumours have acquired resistance to first-line targeted therapy; repotrectinib has been specifically designed to circumvent mutations that allow tumours to start growing again, despite initially responding to another kinase inhibitor. Data are due in the second half of next year. Neither Xalkori nor entrectinib has shown activity in tumours with these mutations or other types of resistance mutations. Response rates are not the end of the story here, and investors are keenly awaiting longer-term data on duration of remission to therapy.
