Summary
Brief summary
This will be a single arm, multicentre study involving women diagnosed with non-metastatic locally advanced breast cancer. The study will assess the feasibility of developing a uniform approach with chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy in the treatment of locally advanced breast cancer. It will also define the rates of objective clinical response and complete pathological response following 6 cycles TAC. Further, the accuracy of breast MRI and PET in predicting extent of breast cancer in the pathological examination of the surgical specimen will be assessed.
