Most significant news at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium?


Question from beth_Popadynetz: What was the most significant news at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium?
Answers - Eric Winer, M.D. I think the most exciting news was about the potential for some new anti-HER2 therapies, although none of these was ready for routine clinical use. I think the two most clinically relevant pieces of information were that (1) we should not be doing CYP2D6 tests to select hormonal therapies as a matter of practice, and (2) the bisphosphonates in the most recent study do not seem to prevent breast cancer recurrence.

On Wednesday, December 15, 2010, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Updates from the 2010 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium. Eric Winer, M.D. and Marisa Weiss, M.D. answered your questions about the latest updates on breast cancer risk, screening, and treatment in early and metastatic breast cancer.
