Ann H. Partridge, MD, MPH, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discusses what she considers to be the most notable presentations at the 2021 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium. They include the focus on early-stage disease, especially in the TEXT/SOFT, RxPonder, and KEYNOTE-522 trials, as well as abstracts from the Early Breast Cancer Trialists’ Collaborative Group; and new data and novel therapeutics in the advanced setting.

Kevin Kalinsky, MD, on HR-Positive HER2-Negative Breast Cancer: Endocrine Therapy and Chemotherapy

Kevin Kalinsky, MD, of the Winship Cancer Institute at Emory University, discusses updated phase III results from the SWOG S1007 (RxPONDER) study of women with one to three positive lymph nodes, and hormone receptor–positive, HER2-negative breast cancer. The data showed that postmenopausal women with recurrence scores (RS) from 0 to 25 continue not to benefit from adjuvant chemotherapy, whereas premenopausal women with a RS from 0 to 25 did benefit from the addition of chemotherapy to endocrine therapy (Abstract GS2-07).

Javier Cortés, MD, PhD, on Previously Untreated Triple-Negative Breast Cancer: Pembrolizumab Plus Chemotherapy

Javier Cortés, MD, PhD, of the International Breast Cancer Center, discusses the final phase III results of KEYNOTE-355, which showed that pembrolizumab and chemotherapy improved overall and progression-free survival, compared with placebo and chemotherapy, for patients with previously untreated, locally recurrent, inoperable or metastatic triple-negative breast cancer (Abstract GS1-02 ).

François-Clément Bidard, MD, PhD, on Metastatic Breast Cancer: Endocrine Therapy and Palbociclib

François-Clément Bidard, MD, PhD, of the Institut Curie, discusses phase III findings of the PADA-1 study, which showed that optimizing endocrine therapy after detecting the ESR1 mutation in patients with hormone receptor–positive, HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer may double their median progression-free survival (Abstract GS3-05).

Patricia A. Ganz, MD, of the University of California, Los Angeles, discusses quality-of-life results from the phase III OlympiA study of adjuvant olaparib after (neo)adjuvant chemotherapy in patients with germline BRCA1/2 mutations and high-risk HER2-negative early breast cancer (Abstract GS4-09).

Meredith M. Regan, ScD, on Early Breast Cancer: Updated Results From the TEXT and SOFT Trials

Meredith M. Regan, ScD, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discusses findings that point to the potential benefits of using adjuvant exemestane plus ovarian function suppression (OFS) to treat premenopausal women with hormone receptor–positive early breast cancer. This conclusion came after 13 years of median follow-up on the TEXT and SOFT trials, during which this regimen was compared with tamoxifen and OFS (Abstract GS2-05).
