Dr. Rugo Discusses Late Recurrence in HR+ Breast Cancer
Hope Rugo, MD
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.
