In 2016, Cureus and TME sponsored a case report research competition called: Exceptional Responders in Breast cancer. We sought challenging cases where breast cancer patients exhibited unexpected or exceptional responses (positive or negative) to a therapy or diagnostic approach. A distinguished panel of Breast Care Network reviewers did the initial reviews and the Cureus community weighed in to judge the article for impact and novelty.
Many cases were submitted for review, 25 new publications were produced and articles have been viewed close to 20,000 times in the last several weeks. Submissions came from across the country including Johns Hopkins, University of Kansas, William Beaumont, UPMC, University of Colorado, and other academic institutions, as well as many submissions from community physicians.
