Edith A. Perez, MD, the deputy director at large for the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center, discusses the BEACON trial.
 
The BEACON trial (BrEAst Cancer Outcomes with NKTR-102) is an important study for refractory HER2-negative breast cancer, says Perez. It looks at the new compound etirinotecan pegol (NKTR-102), a long-acting topoisomerase-1 inhibitor designed for prolonged tumor cell exposure, in comparison to physicians’ choice of treatment.
