2015 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium
Andrew Seidman, MD, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Eric P. Winer, MD, of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discuss the results of this study that showed pathologic complete response to presurgery chemotherapy improved survival (Abstract S2-05).
Sarat Chandarlapaty, MD, PhD, of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses results from this study that showed patients with ER-positive metastatic breast cancer who had a D538G and/or a Y537S mutation in the ESR1 gene had significantly worse median overall survival (Abstract S2-07).
Sherene Loi, MD, of Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, discusses a pooled individual patient data analysis of stromal tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes in primary triple-negative breast cancer treated with anthracycline-based chemotherapy (Abstract S1-03).
Jame Abraham, MD, of the Cleveland Clinic, discusses findings on the use of avelumab, an anti–PD-L1 antibody, in patients with locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer, as well as the preliminary efficacy and safety findings of pembrolizumab in patients with PD-L1–positive, estrogen receptor–positive/HER2-negative disease (Abstracts S1-04, S5-07).
Jame Abraham, MD, of the Cleveland Clinic, discusses the 10-year follow-up of this trial, and the long-term benefit and safety of adding trastuzumab to the adjuvant treatment of HER2-positive early breast cancer (Abstract S5-04).
Hans Wildiers, MD, PhD, of the University Hospitals, Leuven, discusses this phase III study on the use of ado-trastuzumab emtansine vs treatment of physician’s choice in previously treated HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer (Abstract S5-05).
