Myriad Genetics, Inc.

Personalizing Breast Cancer Risks Beyond BRCA

riskScore®: Using the Next Generation of Risk Models for a More Precise and Personalized Cancer Risk

Description:

We will discuss how riskScore® is a precision medicine tool clinically validated to predict a woman’s risk of developing breast cancer. We will illustrate how it analyzes family history, personal clinical risk factors, and over 80 well-studied genetic markers to predict the risk of developing breast cancer over the next 5 years and remaining lifetime. In addition, we will cover possible advances such as expanding its availability to all ancestries and leveraging it to refine the risk for mutation carriers. View Webinar Brochure (pdf)

Program Objectives:

  1. Describe how riskScore® analyzes over 80 well-studied genetic markers and combined with the Tyrer-Cuzick model estimates a woman’s risk for developing breast cancer

  2. Learn how the model was validated and can be utilized in clinic today

  3. Summarize how the utilization of polygenic risk scores significantly modifies the risk of patients who carry a mutation

PeerView Institute

The Era of Immuno-Oncology in TNBC: Navigating Evidence in Early-Stage & Advanced Disease, Practicalities of Integration, and Implications for Breast Surgeons

Activity Description:

Immunotherapy has become a new pillar in the treatment arsenal for advanced triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC), and accumulating evidence is supporting its expansion into earlier disease stages as well. To make the most of this therapeutic approach as a component of multimodal management of patients, especially in curative intent settings, it is increasingly more important for breast surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, and other healthcare professionals to collaborate and coordinate the care of patients with TNBC.

This PeerView Live webcast provides up-to-date information and multidisciplinary perspectives on the current and emerging roles of immune checkpoint inhibitors and combinations throughout the disease continuum of TNBC, as well as practical guidance for optimal integration of these therapies into clinical practice, focusing on the most important implications for breast surgeons.
