Hope Rugo, MD, professor of medicine, director of the Breast Oncology Clinical Trials Program, UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, discusses late recurrence in patients with hormone receptor (HR)-positive breast cancer.

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.
