    What is the treatment for inflammatory invasive ductal carcinoma?

I have a 50 year old Sister with inflamitory invasive ductal carsinoma. She is going through a massive chemo therapy treatment which is making her extremely sick and has caused her to loose all of her hair. I have heard about H 86 and want to know if this is real or just a placebo. She is very stubborn and unless I have sound research results she won t even discuss it. Can you tell me something about this treatment and where I can get good sound information that I can share with her.

Hello,

Inflammatory carcinoma is an advanced and lethal form of breast cancer. Treatment is mainly palliative and complete cure is not possible in most of the cases. Chemo and hormone therapy is recommended protocol. H86 is not a proven therapy and results are unsatisfactory.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Wishing you all the best.

Regards,
Dr. Shinas Hussain, General & Family Physician
