Dr Fatima Cardoso – Champalimaud Cancer Center, Lisbon, Portugal

Dr Fatima Cardoso talks to ecancer about advances in the standard of care in the neo-adjuvant setting for triple negative and HER 2 breast cancer at the 2012 ESMO meeting in Vienna.


In HER 2 breast cancer, numerous advances have been made with trastuzumab, but further studies need to determine whether it is more effective in neo-adjuvant or adjuvant setting. Recently it was discovered that, for clinical practice, these agents can be used with anthracyclines.


Dr Cardoso also discusses the surgical challenges and prognostic factors involved in these breast cancer sub types.
