New Appreciation of Triple Negative Disease

A great article regarding the current understanding of Triple Negative Breast Cancer and how to best treat it. If your breast cancer has been classified as ER-, PR- and Her2- (about 15% or all breast breast cancers are TN), then this article is a must read.

"Marina Cazzaniga and her colleagues at Treviglio Hospital, Italy found in the NORA study contrary to other observations, that triple negative patients did not have worse prognosis, in terms of disease-free (DFS) or overall survival (OS), than others in the total cohort of 3515 patients treated in 77 cancer centers in Italy from to 2000 to 2003"
