Matthew J. Ellis, MD, on Endocrine Therapy–Resistant Breast Cancer
2014 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium
Matthew J. Ellis, MD, PhD, of the Baylor College of Medicine, offers a brief synopsis of his plenary lecture, "Genome-Directed Therapeutics for Endocrine Therapy–Resistant Estrogen Receptor–Positive Breast Cancer."
Ismail Jatoi, MD, PhD, FACS, of the University of Texas Health Science Center and Ann H. Partridge, MD, MPH, of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute discuss the increasing movement away from breast conservation toward bilateral surgical procedures.
Larry Wickerham, MD, and Harry D. Bear, MD, PhD, discuss three clinical trials:
• B-40, the only study to combine neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemotherapy with bevacizumab
• B-51, on radiation to the chest wall
• Alliance trial, on lymph node dissection
Matthew J. Ellis, MD, PhD, of the Baylor College of Medicine discusses with Harold J. Burstein, MD, PhD, of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute genome-directed therapeutics for endocrine therapy-resistant estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer.
