Michael Gnant, MD, on HR-Positive, HER2-Negative Early Breast Cancer: Trial Results With Palbociclib Treatment

2021 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium

Advertisement

Michael Gnant, MD, of the Medical University of Vienna, discusses phase III findings from the PALLAS study, which showed that adding 2 years of palbociclib to ongoing adjuvant endocrine therapy did not improve survival for patients with stage II to III hormone receptor–positive, HER2-negative early breast cancer. Dr. Gnant also talks about whether any correlative studies hint at patient subgroups that this regimen may benefit (Abstract GS1-07) .

Lisa A. Carey, MD, of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, discusses findings from a pooled analysis of the MONALEESA-2, -3, and -7 trials. Among the findings was a consistent overall survival benefit with ribociclib plus endocrine therapy for patients with luminal A, luminal B, and HER2E breast cancer subtypes. Patients with the basal-like subtype did not derive a benefit from ribociclib, but the sample size was small (Abstract GS1-04).
