Abstract: We read the interesting article by Jagsi et al on the increased rates of coronary artery disease in patients treated with radiation therapy for early-stage breast cancer.1 In their study, those authors concluded that the findings support further assessment of clinical outcomes when newer techniques of chemotherapy planning are employed as well as investigation of the potential role of innovative techniques. However, there was no mention of the novel radiosensitizing and chemosensitizing effects of bisphosphonates (BPs), which inhibit tumor cell adhesion to bone, and tumor growth in breast cancer.
