Prof Banu Arun - MD Anderson Center, Houston, USA

Prof Arun speaks with ecancer at the 10th BGICC in Cairo about treatment prospects for women with triple negative breast cancer.

She outlines that, while chemotherapy can prove effective, adding new-generation adjuvant and neo-adjuvant agents may improve partial clinical response and disease survival.

Prof Arun highlights data from recent trials ASCO 2017 on velaparib with neo-adjuvant chemotherapy, which show a greater benefit with platinum therapies at a cost of greater toxicity.

Prof Arun also spoke with ecancer about treatment strategies for BRCA tumours, here.
