Radical Sentinel Lymph Node and Axillary Lymph Node Dissection Can Negatively Affect Outcomes in Patients With Early-Stage Breast Cancer

December 16th 2021

Data presented from the INSEMA trial during the 2021 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium indicated that patients with early-stage breast cancer had better quality of life outcomes when forgoing a sentinel lymph node biopsy and axillary lymph node dissection. However, patients had improved arm symptoms and functioning with SLNB vs ALND.

Neratinib Combos Show Promise in HER2-Mutant Metastatic Breast Cancers

December 10th 2021

Neratinib (Nerlynx) induced positive overall response rates in patients with heavily pretreated hormone receptor–positive/HER2-negative, HER2-mutant metastatic breast cancer when combined with fulvestrant and trastuzumab, and also in patients with metastatic HER2-mutant triple-negative breast cancer when combined with trastuzumab.

Dr. Bardia on the Efficacy Results of the EMERALD Trial in ER+/HER2- Breast Cancer

December 10th 2021

Aditya Bardia, MD, MPH, discusses the efficacy results of the phase 3 EMERALD trial in estrogen receptor–positive, HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer.

AEs Related to Olaparib Treatment May Be Easily Mitigated in High-Risk Early Breast Cancer

December 10th 2021

Certain adverse effects associated with olaparib were minimal and resolved with appropriate management in patients with germline BRCA1/2 mutations in patients with high-risk, HER2-negative, early-stage breast cancer.

Likelihood of Pathologic CR After Neoadjuvant Chemo is Not Significantly Affected by Race in Breast Cancer

December 10th 2021

Pathologic complete response and event-free survival was not found to be significantly affected by race among patients with high-risk breast cancer who received neoadjuvant chemotherapy; however, disparities were observed among patients who did not achieve a pCR.

Dr. Ganz on the Quality of Life Results From the OlympiA Trial in BRCA-Mutated Breast Cancer

December 10th 2021

Patricia A. Ganz, MD, discusses the quality of life results from the phase 3 OlympiA trial in BRCA-mutated breast cancer.

Dr. Kruse on the Results of a Study Comparing Outcomes in Pleomorphic Vs Non-Pleomorphic Invasive Lobular Carcinoma

December 10th 2021

Megan Kruse, MD, discusses the results of a study comparing clinical features and outcomes of pleomorphic vs non-pleomorphic invasive lobular carcinoma.

Samuraciclib Plus Fulvestrant Improves PFS in Heavily Pretreated HR+ Breast Cancer

December 10th 2021

Fulvestrant plus the CDK7 inhibitor samuraciclib demonstrated encouraging efficacy in patients with hormone receptor-positive breast cancer who were heavily pretreated with CDK4/6 inhibitors.

Early Use of ctDNA Testing Can Identify Likelihood of Relapse in TNBC

December 9th 2021

Physicians treating patients with early-stage triple-negative breast cancer should employ circulating tumor DNA testing early and often, according to results from the phase 2 cTRAK TN trial.

Subgroup Analyses Support T-DXd as Second-Line Standard in HER2+ Metastatic Breast Cancer

December 9th 2021

Trastuzumab deruxtecan led to prolonged progression-free survival and higher responses vs trastuzumab emtansine as second-line therapy in patients with HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer across all patients subgroups, including those with and without baseline brain metastases.

Dr. Schmid on Additional Results From the KEYNOTE-522 Trial in Early-Stage TNBC

December 9th 2021

Peter Schmid, MD, PhD, FRCP, discusses additional results from the phase 3 KEYNOTE-522 trial in early-stage triple-negative breast cancer.

Dr. Hurvitz on the Results of Subgroup Analyses From DESTINY-Breast03 in HER2+ Breast Cancer

December 9th 2021

Sara A. Hurvitz, MD, discusses the results of subgroup analyses from the phase 3 DESTINY-Breast03 trial in patients with HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer.

Pyrotinib Plus Capecitabine Shows Improved OS Over Lapatinib in HER2+ Breast Cancer

December 9th 2021

Pyrotinib plus capecitabine exhibited longer overall survival (OS), compared with lapatinib plus capecitabine, in patients with HER2-positive breast cancer

Efficacy of Pertuzumab/Trastuzumab Deruxtecan Combo Under Investigation in DESTINY-Breast09 for HER2+ Breast Cancer

December 9th 2021

Prior research has shown that the combination of trastuzumab deruxtecan plus pertuzumab may be superior to T-trastuzumab deruxtecan alone in patients with HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer and the combination is now under examination in the phase 3 DESTINY-Breast09 trial.

Adjuvant Approaches Reduce Risk of Distant Recurrence in HER2+ Early Stage Breast Cancer

December 9th 2021

Adjuvant treatment with neratinib or ado-trastuzumab emtansine resulted in a greater reduction in the risk of disease recurrence compared with other therapies in an epidemiologic model of HER2-positive, early-stage breast cancer.

Zanidatamab/Chemo Showcases Early Safety, Antitumor Activity in HER2+ Breast Cancer

December 9th 2021

The addition of the bispecific antibody zanidatamab to single-agent chemotherapy was found to produce promising antitumor activity with acceptable tolerability in heavily pretreated patients with HER2-positive breast cancer.

Addition of Chemo to Endocrine Therapy Yields Survival Benefit in Premenopausal HR+/HER2- Breast Cancer

December 8th 2021

Significant outcome differences were observed in premenopausal vs postmenopausal patients with hormone receptor–positive, HER2-negative breast cancer who had 1 to 3 positive lymph nodes and received adjuvant chemotherapy as well as endocrine therapy.

Tucatinib Plus Palbociclib/Letrozole Prolongs CNS-PFS in HR+/HER2+ Breast Cancer

December 8th 2021

A non-chemotherapy–based targeted regimen comprised of tucatinib, palbociclib, and letrozole resulted in prolonged central nervous system progression-free survival in patients with hormone receptor–positive, HER2-positive breast cancer.
