State of the Art and Current Paradigms in HR+/HER2- aBC

VCCC Alliance Grand Round Breast Cancer with Assistant Professor Jose Angel Garcia-Saenz

Endocrine therapy stands as the cornerstone in HR+/HER2- advanced breast cancer. Learn about defining and tailoring the best therapy sequencing to achieve the longest and highest quality of life for breast cancer patients. 

Endocrine therapy stands as the cornerstone in HR+/HER2- advanced breast cancer. Targeting the ligand or the estrogen receptor results in cancer control, however the vast majority of the tumours will progress within the first year.

Searching for mechanisms to prevent or restore the endocrine sensitivity including cell survival, cell cycle and other cell signaling pathways (amongst the identification of primary or acquired actionable biomarkers) have shown to improve clinical long term outcomes. Defining and tailoring the best therapy sequencing is needed to achieve the longest and highest quality of living for our breast cancer patients.
