New treatments for inflammatory breast cancer?


Question from MeeshaPatel: I have inflammatory breast cancer. Any new treatments or combinations discussed at ASCO?
Answers - Generosa Grana, M.D., F.A.C.P Inflammatory breast cancer is a relatively uncommon presentation, but does tend to have a very specific picture and poses challenges to our management. Nothing new was presented that I am aware of, but there is a lot of interest in looking at some of the targeted agents, such as Avastin, in this setting.
