Posted Date: Jun 6, 2018

  • Investigator: Elizabeth Shaughnessy
  • Specialties: Hematology/Oncology, Oncology, Cancer, Radiation Oncology, Surgical Oncology
  • Type of Study: Drug

The purpose of this study is to examine whether removing some of the lymph nodes from the arm pit, but not removing them all followed with radiation therapy (experimental) will be as good as having the majority of the lymph nodes from the arm pit removed during breast surgery followed with radiation (standard of care).


To Qualify You Must Have Breast Cancer That Has Spread To The Lymph Nodes Under Your Arm (In The Arm Pit) And You Have Been Treated With Chemotherapy Before Having Surgery To Remove Any Remaining Breast Cancer.
