Loosening COVID-19 Restrictions and Immunocompromised People: Do You Feel Left Behind?

If you're immunocompromised, are you worried that other people's eagerness to get back to pre-COVID-19 "normal" will make you sick?

If you're being treated for breast cancer, you may be considered immunocompromised, meaning your immune system isn't functioning at its full capacity. As mask mandates are being dropped and other COVID-19 restrictions are loosening, many immunocompromised people feel left behind and are worried that other people's eagerness to get back to quote "normal" may make them sick.

Listen to the episode to hear Dr. Wojciechowski explain:

  • vaccine effectiveness in immunocompromised people
  • his mask recommendations
  • how immunocompromised people can continue to protect themselves
  • how he's talking to his patients about this issue
Running time: 16:30

At the recent 2022 American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting, researchers presented results showing Enhertu (chemical name: fam-trastuzumab-deruxtecan-nxki), which is a type of medicine doctors call an antibody-drug conjugate, improved both progression-free survival and overall survival in people diagnosed with previously treated metastatic HER2-low breast cancer.

Listen to the podcast to hear Dr. Wojciechowski explain:

  • what HER2-low breast cancer is
  • how Enhertu works
  • how the results of the DESTINY-Breast-04 study will change practice

Fezolinetant: A Non-Hormonal Treatment for Hot Flashes
July 22, 2022

Genevieve Neal-Perry, MD, PhD, discusses her research on fezolinetant as a treatment for hot flashes.

If you've been diagnosed with breast cancer before menopause, some of your treatments, including chemotherapy and hormonal therapy, can bring on menopause earlier and more abruptly than expected, causing hot flashes and night sweats. For some women, these symptoms can be severe and dramatically affect their quality of life.

In search of relief, some women consider hormone replacement therapy (HRT). But because HRT contains hormones — estrogen or a combination of estrogen and progesterone — which can make breast cells grow, it is not recommended for women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Listen to the podcast to hear Dr. Neal-Perry explain:

  • how fezolinetant works to ease hot flashes
  • fezolinetant side effects
  • why the results of her work on the SKYLIGHT 2 study are so exciting for women with a history of breast cancer

Trodelvy Offers Benefits for Hormone Receptor-Positive Breast Cancer
Sep 22, 2022

Dr. Hope Rugo discusses the latest results from the TROPiCS-02 trial showing Trodelvy improves overall survival compared to chemotherapy in metastatic, hormone receptor-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer.

At the European Society for Medical Oncology Congress 2022, Dr. Rugo presented results from the TROPiCS-02 trial, which was looking to see if the targeted therapy Trodelvy (chemical name: sacituzumab govitecan-hziy) could offer more benefits for people diagnosed with previously treated, metastatic, hormone receptor-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer than chemotherapy. Currently, Trodelvy is approved to treat previously-treated, metastatic triple-negative breast cancer.

  • the type of medicine Trodelvy is and how it works
  • the results showing people diagnosed with previously treated, metastatic, hormone receptor-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer lived longer when they received Trodelvy compared to chemotherapy

Still, in most cases, we're usually talking about the time after initial treatments for breast cancer are completed. Evelyn Robles-Rodriguez joined us to explain why the term can be controversial, as well as how a survivorship care plan can monitor for late and long-term side effects.
