Radical Local vs. Palliative Therapy for Breast Cancer Patientts With Ipsilateral Humerus or Sternum Oligometastasis


Brief description of study

A Randomized, Open Label, Phase III Trial to Evaluate Radical Local Treatment versus Palliative Treatment for Breast Cancer Patients with Primary Ipsilateral Humerus or Sternum Oligometastasis

Detailed Study Description

This is a prospective, randomized, and multicenter study to compare the radical local treatment versus palliative treatment for breast cancer patients with primary ipsilateral humerus or sternum oligometastasis.

183 subjects will be randomized divided into two groups (experimental group and control group) at a ratio of 2 to 1.

Control group: Palliative treatment. No radical surgical resection or radiotherapy is performed in this group. But palliative internal fixation or radiotherapy for pain relief is permitted. Moreover, systemic chemotherapy, endocrine therapy and targeted therapy are allowed.

Experimental groupRadical local treatment. Radical resection is performed, and the cutting edge is negative, or radical local radiotherapy is feasible (cumulative radiotherapy dose is greater than or equal to 50Gy). Systemic endocrine therapy and targeted therapy are allowed after radical local therapy. However, whether systemic chemotherapy should be used is determined by clinicians according to clinical experience or guidelines.
