Milana Bergamino Sirvén, MD, PhD, on HER2-Positive Early-Stage Breast Cancer: Molecular Profiling, Prognosis, and Treatment Options

2024 ASCO Annual Meeting


Milana Bergamino Sirvén, MD, PhD, of Spain’s Institute of Cancer Research, discusses her findings on molecular profiling of patients with estrogen receptor–positive, HER2-positive early-stage breast tumors after short-term preoperative endocrine therapy. This study suggests that such profiling may help clinicians identify those patients with a favorable prognosis for adjuvant endocrine therapy and those who may require additional treatment (Abstract 560).
