Prof Gabriel Hortobagyi talks to ecancer for the ESMO 2021 meeting about the overall survival results from the phase III MONALEESA study.

This study looked at the use of endocrine therapy with ribociclib in postmenopausal patients with HR positive and HER2 negative advanced breast cancer.

Prof Hortobagyi also reports that the advantage of the treatment seems to improve with time with the survival curves continuing to separate the longer the treatments go on.
