Anne Favret, MD, medical oncologist and co-director of Breast Research at Virginia Cancer Specialists, discusses the importance of clinical trials in the breast cancer space.
Breast cancer treatment is a marathon, not a sprint, says Favret. Often, women with breast cancer will live for a long time and so regimens that help maintain best quality of life and also extend life are necessary; this is always a challenge, adds Favret. Additionally, being able to recognize new data and incorporate that information into new trials can help to extend the methods that are available for use; that is clinically very important, concludes Favret.
