Rugo says that the idea of latency in HR-positive disease is still not fully understood.

Currently, trials involving CDK4/6 inhibitors and PI3K inhibitors are garnering interest in this population. Rugo says that it remains to be seen whether these agents are the key to understanding late recurrence.
