Dr Luigi Formisano - Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, USA

Dr Luigi Formisano speaks with ecancer at SABCS 2017 about breast cancer therapy resistance mediated by FGFR amplification.

He describes the development from PDX mouse models to an initial group of 34 breast cancer patients who overexpress FGFR, which he links to anti-oestrogen and CDK 4/6 resistance, and how this could be tackled to improve patient response.

Dr Formisano identifies ongoing trials to further validate these findings.
