Research into personalised axillary treatment of breast cancer with lymph node metastases14-01-2022
When breast cancer has spread to lymph nodes in the armpit, extensive imaging studies are performed and tumour characteristics are determined prior to surgical removal. Research initiated at Maastricht UMC+ aims to clarify the extent to which an accurate assessment can be made of possible responses to chemotherapy prior to surgery. As a result, extensive surgery to the armpit may not always be required in the future. The KWF is subsidising the research with € 538,000.
