Developments on breast cancer vaccines?


Question from Eriana: Were there any new developments regarding breast cancer vaccines and their use for metastatic disease?
Answers - Kathy D. Miller, M.D. I saw no new studies about vaccines. This was not a big focus of the meeting this year. Several of the small vaccine studies that were really looking at the safety and feasibility of this approach had updates and longer term results. But I didn't see any important new studies in this area.

On Tuesday, December 15, 2009, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Updates from the 2009 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium. Kathy Miller, M.D. and Kristin Brill, M.D., F.A.C.S. answered your questions about the latest updates on breast cancer risk, screening techniques, treatment options, and more.
