Leisha A. Emens, MD, PhD, professor of medicine at the UPMC Cancer Center, discusses how the data from the IMpassion130 trial have demonstrated benefit for immunotherapy in metastatic triple-negative breast cancer (mTNBC).

The IMpassion130 trial is a phase III study of atezolizumab (Tecentriq) plus nab-paclitaxel in patients with treatment-naïve, locally advanced or mTNBC. This is the first phase III trial to show clinical benefit in this patient population with use of an immunotherapy, Emens says.
