Overview

Dr. Holmes is board certified in internal medicine and also medical oncology. My professional career has involved the treatment and research for the cure of breast cancer. At MD Anderson, I completed my cancer training and joined the Faculty of Breast Medical Oncology. At MD Anderson, I performed the first clinical trial of paclitaxel (Taxol) resulting in approval for breast cancer. After 15 years at MD Anderson, I joined Texas Oncology/US Oncology and the Breast Cancer Research Committee. I was the principal investigator for the clinical trial that led to the approval of pegfilgrastim (Neulasta) for prevention of low white blood cells from chemotherapy. I have continued as an active member of the Breast Cancer Research Committee with US Oncology. Additionally, I am very involved in Supportive Care issues and lecture regularly on nausea, vomiting, myelosuppression. I am a Program Director for the School of Breast Oncology, an national annual comprehensive course updating physicians on breast cancer as well as The Future of Breast Cancer, a national breast cancer meeting aimed at disseminating information about new treatments and technologies for breast cancer. At Memorial City Hospital, once a month I coordinate and prepare a multidisplinary discussions about difficult, challenging, or new aspects of breast cancer. This requires close coordination with Radiology, Radiation Oncology, Pathology, and Surgery and its subspecialties.
