Patricia Prijatel's insight:

Readers have found this book accessible, readable, and supportive.  In it, I provide insight into triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) through hundreds of research studies.  I make the story real by profiling 11 women who have survived this disease.  I also give a bit of my story.  The book is all about information and hope.  It has earned a five-star review from readers on Amazon, and it was "highly recommended" by the Library Journal, which gave it a starred review.  My favorite comment, from the fabulous Carol Scott-Conner who wrote the foreword and helped fact-check parts of the book: "The voice of a true friend echoes throughout these pages."

Patricia Prijatel's insight:

More than 82 clinical trials are now looking for targeted treatments for TNBC. Because TNBC is defined by what it lacks—receptors for estrogen, progesterone, and HER2/neu—it also lacks a targeted therapy. Researchers are busy finding a genetic signature of subsets of TNBC that will lead to those therapies.

 

The San Antonio symposium this year had at least 20 papers looking at the genetics of TNBC, its response to chemo, and the potential for those targeted drugs, which no longer look as elusive as they had once been.

Molecular Characterization of Basal-Like and Non-Basal-Like Triple-Negative Breast Cancer | Breast Cancer News

Molecular Characterization of Basal-Like and Non-Basal-Like Triple-Negative Breast Cancer | Breast Cancer News | Triple-Negative Breast Cancer | Scoop.it
"Studies based upon global gene expression analyses have identified four main intrinsic molecular subtypes of breast cancer known as luminal A, luminal B, HER2-enriched [HER2E] and basal-like [1–4].
Patricia Prijatel's insight:

Not all triple-negative breast cancers are basal-like and differentiating between the two is essential in terms of assessing prognosis and determining treatment.

"

The type of adjuvant regimen a patient receives depends on risk of recurrence as well as a physician’s treatment philosophy, according to Muss. Higher risk patients include triple-negative breast cancer patients as well as those with multiple positive lymph nodes.

The more aggressive regimens require growth factors and come with much short-term toxicity. “But, they have made a major impact in improving survival for patients with high-risk breast cancer,” said Muss."

Patricia Prijatel's insight:

Know the side effects of any drug before you start your regimen—and weigh those effects in comparison to the effectiveness of that drug in your specific case.
