Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is highly resistant to treatment and remains the most challenging subtype of cancer to treat, particularly once it has progressed. It’s imperative for clinicians to stay informed regarding the growing understanding of crosstalk between growth factor signaling and ER pathways and the implications of this crosstalk for treating patients with endocrine-resistant tumors.
Community oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, oncology nurses, and other health care professionals involved in the care and treatment of women with breast cancer.
At the end of this online enduring material, participants should be able to:
Identify molecular pathways that contribute to endocrine and trastuzumab resistance and discuss their implications for treatment.
Discuss the outcomes of the most recent clinical trials related to the management of women with treatment-resistant breast cancer, including those with triple-negative breast cancer.
