High-dose chemo and IBC?

Question from Fiona: What's your opinion on high-dose chemotherapy for use with IBC?
Answers - Gabriel N. Hortobagyi, M.D., F.A.C.P. High dose-chemotherapy remains a treatment under investigation for any and all types of breast cancer. It is not part of standard treatment. Whether it will have or whether it would have had effects in patients with inflammatory breast cancer remains to be determined, and unfortunately because there is such a small number of inflammatory breast cancers, there will never be a definitive trial of that question.

On Wednesday, October 18, 2006, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Inflammatory Breast Cancer. Gabriel Hortobagyi, M.D., Thomas Buchholz, M.D., andĀ moderatorĀ Jennifer Sabol, M.D. answered your questions about inflammatory breast cancer, a rare but aggressive form of breast cancer.
