La Crosse, Wis., Albert Lea, Minn., Eau Claire, Wis., Mankato, Minn., Rochester, Minn.
This randomized phase III trial studies how well aspirin works in preventing the cancer from coming back (recurrence) in patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) breast cancer after chemotherapy, surgery, and/or radiation therapy. Aspirin is a drug that reduces pain, fever, inflammation, and blood clotting. It is also being studied in cancer prevention. Giving aspirin may reduce the rate of cancer recurrence in patients with breast cancer.
We are doing this research study to compare radiation dermatitis severity in exposed skin protected by a thin film dressing versus skin that is not protected during radiation treatment. We will also be comparing two types of film; a perforated thin film dressing versus the standard thin film.
Jacksonville, Fla., Rochester, Minn., Albert Lea, Minn., Mankato, Minn.
This randomized phase III trial studies axillary lymph node dissection to see how well it works compared to axillary radiation therapy in treating patients with node-positive breast cancer treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgery. Lymph node dissection may remove cancer cells that have spread to nearby lymph nodes in patients with breast cancer. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. This study will evaluate whether radiation therapy is as effective as lymph node dissection.
