The discussion includes information regarding incidence, prognosis, and molecular subtypes of TNBC. It includes data on neoadjuvant treatment for early-stage TNBC, including benefits, such as improved pCR rates; and information on anthracycline-, taxane-, platinum-, and microtubule-inhibitor-based regimens. The CME also includes information on: recurrence and survival data and locations of metastases, treatment responses with chemotherapy, single-agent versus combination therapy, preferred NCCN single agents, and study 301 subgroup data. It details the factors to consider when selecting treatments, including: personalizing goals of chemotherapy in metastatic TNBC; tolerance of side effects; and quality-of-life considerations.
