New & Supporting Data for Optimizing Therapy in HER2+ Breast Cancer | Dr. Mahtani & Dr. Schwartzberg [Video]

Although there has been considerable progress in the treatment of early stage HER2+ breast cancer, there are still areas of unmet need. Specifically, there are patients that still go on to develop metastatic disease despite optimal neoadjuvant and adjuvant therapy. Moreover, a good percentage of these patients are relapsing in the CNS, despite the gains we have achieved with T-DM1 in the post neoadjuvant setting. In the metastatic setting, first line therapy with a taxane, trastuzumab and pertuzumab has become standard. However, with the approval of several other agents optimizing sequencing strategies remains an area of active investigation. Balancing side effects, dosing schedules as well as efficacy of these agents continues to be challenging. Patient goals of care are also being given a much more significant place in therapeutic decision making. Reshma Mahtani, DO, from Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Lee Schwartzberg, MD, FACP, from West Cancer Center & Research Institute, discuss the newest information on data and supporting data leading to better selection of treatment for early stage and metastatic HER2+ breast cancer.

Timestamps0:00 Introduction: Alcohol is linked to 750,00 cancer cases1:13 Why alcohol can increase the risk of cancer2:17 How to reduce alcohol consumption 3:00 Share your success story! In this video, we’re going to talk about a study that links alcohol to 750,000 cancer cases each year. A worldwide study in 2020 looked at the relationship between alcohol and cancer. They found that 4% of all cancers are caused by alcohol. 75% of these alcohol-related cancer cases are in men. The most common types of cancer related to alcohol consumption (in order) are:• Esophagus (32%!)• Liver• Breast• Colorectal• Head and neckAlcohol-related cancer cases are most prevalent in eastern Asia and central and eastern Europe. The question is, why does alcohol consumption increase your risk of cancer? There are five primary reasons. Take a look. 1. Alcohol gives off a toxic carcinogen called acetaldehyde 2. Alcohol increases ROS 3. Alcohol blocks antioxidant nutrients4. Alcohol increases estrogen 5. Alcohol makes carcinogens more easily absorbedDrinking kombucha tea can help reduce your cravings for alcohol. It has a similar texture to beer or champaign, and it can create a relaxed feeling after consuming it. Nutritional yeast is also great for curbing cravings because it’s loaded with B vitamins.

His use of “doctor” or “Dr.” in relation to himself solely refers to that degree. Dr. Berg is a licensed chiropractor in Virginia, California, and Louisiana, but he no longer practices chiropractic in any state and does not see patients so he can focus on educating people as a full time activity, yet he maintains an active license.

You should not make any change in your health regimen or diet before first consulting a physician and obtaining a medical exam, diagnosis, and recommendation. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. #keto #ketodiet #weightloss #ketolifestyleThanks for watching.
