Endocrine therapy after breast-­conserving surgery may be the only treatment needed in patients aged ≥55 years with low-grade luminal type A breast cancer, sparing them radiation therapy, including its side effects, financial burden, and inconvenience, according to findings from the single-arm LUMINA clinical trial reported at the 2022 American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting.

The investigational oral selective estrogen receptor degrader (SERD) elacestrant (RAD1901) significantly reduced the risk for death or disease progression and improved progression-free survival (PFS) compared with standard of care (SOC) endocrine therapy in patients with estrogen receptor (ER)-­positive, HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer who had progressed on previous endocrine and targeted therapies, according to results of the phase 3 EMERALD clinical trial.

Abemaciclib plus nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitors were shown to be a successful initial treatment in a Japanese subpopulation, with a tolerable safety profile, consistent with findings in the whole population in treating patients with HR-positive, HER2-negative advanced breast cancer. Read More ›

The therapeutic advantage of alpelisib over fulvestrant in the treatment of patients with HR-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer and other malignancies is further enhanced by a matched/weighted analysis comparing BYLieve with the real-world scenario. Read More ›

Endocrine therapy used in combination with CDK4/6 inhibitors, in particular, have transformed the metastatic breast cancer landscape, promisingly improving progression-free survival and overall survival among patients with HR-positive, HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer. Read More ›

Neoadjuvant chemotherapy is becoming more popular for patients with locally advanced breast cancer. Downstaging may result in a smaller surgical extent or a higher breast conservation rate, and a better cosmetic outcome. Chemotherapy, on the other hand, has both short- and long-term complications.

Treatment with ICIs in metastatic TNBC has shown encouraging results. Immunotherapy has shifted the paradigm of cancer treatment and opened new research opportunities. TNBC is characterized by immunologic activation while being the most common subtype of breast cancer. Read More ›

Along with surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and targeted therapy, immunotherapy has emerged as the fifth pillar of cancer treatment and is revolutionizing cancer treatment across the board. Read More ›

Sacituzumab govitecan is an effective new medication for people with metastatic TNBC that is well-tolerated. The most prevalent side effects seen in individuals with metastatic TNBC using sacituzumab govitecan are similar to those seen with chemotherapy and can be managed with early, proactive intervention.

SASCIA was a phase 3 trial evaluating sacituzumab govitecan, an antibody–drug conjugate that received accelerated approval from the FDA in 2020 for the treatment of patients with metastatic TNBC who have received ≥2 previous therapies for metastatic disease. Read More ›
