Question from Marium: What was the most important information discussed for bone metastasis-only metastatic patients?
Answers - Eric Winer, M.D. I don't know that there was anything terribly new about metastasis. The news has been development of the drug denosumab (brand name: Prolia), which like the drug Zometa (chemical name: zoledronic acid) can decrease complications from bone metastasis in women with advanced breast cancer.

The Ask-the-Expert Online Conference called Updates From the 2010 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium featured Eric Winer, M.D. and Marisa Weiss, M.D. answering your questions about the latest updates on breast cancer risk, screening, and treatment in early and metastatic breast cancer.
