In a research letter published in JAMA Network Open, researchers suggested that there is a correlation between improved survival and adjuvant chemoendocrine therapy, specifically for hormone receptor (HR)-positive, ERBB2 (formerly HER2/neu)-positive tumors 8 mm to 10 mm.

According to the researchers, recurrence rates for patients with HR-positive, ERBB2-positive tumors range from less than 5% up to 25% at 5 years, with or without adjuvant treatments. With randomized trial data on the role of chemotherapy for small tumors currently lacking in this disease space, the cutoff size at which chemotherapy should be omitted remains uncertain.

While relevant prospective clinical trials continue to accrue data, the researchers indicated that this data could help clinicians in decision-making regarding adjuvant systemic therapy for patients with small HR-positive, ERBB2-positive breast…
