Ivana Sestak, PhD, on Clinical Treatment Score From TAILORx: Predicting Distant Breast Cancer Recurrence

2019 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium

Advertisement

Ivana Sestak, PhD, of Queen Mary University of London and the Centre for Cancer Prevention, discusses study findings that confirm the prognostic ability of the Clinical Treatment Score at 5 years (CTS5) for late distant recurrence, specifically for patients older than 50 years and/or for those deemed to have intermediate- or high-risk hormone receptor–positive, HER2-negative, node-negative breast cancer. The CTS5 is less prognostic in women younger than 50 who received 5 years of endocrine therapy alone (Abstract GS4-03).

Joseph Sparano, MD: The William L. McGuire Memorial Lecture

Joseph Sparano, MD, of the Montefiore Medical Center, discusses three challenges:

  • How can gene-expression profiles and other diagnostic tests be used to guide the use of adjuvant systemic therapy?
  • Is it time to reappraise active surveillance?
  • Are there diagnostic and therapeutic strategies that can identify tumors at highest risk of metastasis, and novel therapies that can block the spread of disease?
