This study evaluates whether the addition of chestwall + regional nodal XRT after mastectomy or breast + regional nodal XRT after breast conserving surgery will significantly reduce the rate of events for invasive breast cancer recurrence-free interval (IBC-RFI) in patients who present with histologically positive axillary nodes but convert to histologically negative axillary nodes following neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
This study is for women having clinical axillary nodal involvement breast cancer at the time of diagnosis.
Interventional (Clinical Trial), Randomized
