Journal Article

Background Polypharmacy is one factor contributing to increased mortality, hospitalization, and adverse drug reactions in older adults. The aim of this study was to measure the prevalence of polypharmacy in a cohort of older women with early-stage op...

The impact of age on health utility values for older women with early-stage breast cancer: a systematic review and meta-regression (2022)
Journal Article

Introduction: An increasing number of postmenopausal women are diagnosed with breast cancer at an older age (≥ 70years). There is a lack of synthesised health utility data to support decision-making for managing breast cancer in this older population...

Molecular Biomarker Expression in Window of Opportunity Studies for Oestrogen Receptor Positive Breast Cancer—A Systematic Review of the Literature (2022)
Journal Article

Window of opportunity (WoO) trials create the opportunity to demonstrate pharmacodynamic parameters of a drug in vivo and have increasing use in breast cancer research. Most breast cancer tumours are oestrogen receptor-positive (ER+), leading to the...

Improving outcomes for women aged 70 years or above with early breast cancer: research programme including a cluster RCT (2022)
Journal Article

Background: In breast cancer management, age-related practice variation is widespread, with older women having lower rates of surgery and chemotherapy than younger women, based on the premise of reduced treatment tolerance and benefit. This may contr... Read More about Improving outcomes for women aged 70 years or above with early breast cancer: research programme including a cluster RCT.

Chemotherapy and gene expression profiling in older early luminal breast cancer patients: An International Society of Geriatric Oncology systematic review (2022)
Journal Article

Background: The benefit of chemotherapy for older patients with hormone receptor (HR)-positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative early breast cancer (EBC) is a key area of debate. Gene expression profiling (GEP) may identify p...

Journal Article

Objective: To appraise the sources of evidence and methods to estimate input parameter values in decision-analytic model-based cost-effectiveness analyses of treatments for primary breast cancer (PBC) in older patients (≥70years old). Methods: Two el... Read More about Systematic review of the evidence sources applied to cost-effectiveness analyses for older women with primary breast cancer.

An overview of the Nottingham Research Programme on Primary Breast Cancer in Older Women: breast cancer in older women (2021)
Journal Article

The incidence of breast cancer increases with age. Despite this, most research in this field is aimed at the younger patient. Preliminary studies have shown that older women with breast cancer have distinct biological features compared to their young...
