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

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


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.
