Published: Sunday, May 28, 2017


Matthew J. Ellis, MD, PhD, professor of Oncology and Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, discusses neoadjuvant endocrine therapy for patients with breast cancer.

Patients often present with a larger breast mass, which puts the patient at high-risk of systemic recurrence, explains Ellis.

There was a subset of patients who did not see positive results with neoadjuvant chemotherapy, allowing neoadjuvant endocrine therapy to be investigated to attempt to shrink the tumor.
