The study design offers one possible explanation for this lack of a demonstrated benefit. “Our study was underpowered to determine whether the increases in the pCR rates seen with the addition of carboplatin and bevacizumab improves EFS or OS,” said Sikov.

“Going forward, the question is whether we want to commit the additional patients and resources necessary to answer this question or instead focus our research efforts in TNBC on other opportunities to improve outcomes,” he concluded.
