The field of breast cancer has seen momentous progress over the last decade, particularly with novel agents for patients with HER2-positive disease.

, William J. Gradishar, MD, interim chief of hematology and oncology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, discussed the latest developments in the HER2-positive setting, as well as biomarker development and the potential for immunotherapy in breast cancer.
