Resources spotlight 3: triple negative breast cancer

OUR SERIES highlighting the library resources held by the royal society of medicine on topics to be discussed at the upcoming breast cancer forum on 14 September – see https://tinyurl.com/y8j5vn94 – concludes with a list of current resources on triple negative breast cancer. See bottom for the list of resources.

Professor Chris Twelves, professor of clinical pharmacology and oncology, Leeds institute of cancer studies and pathology, university of Leeds, will be speaking on this topic, along with brain metastases, at the forum.

Here Chris writes:

Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) didn’t exist when I trained as an oncologist but has become a major issue now; why is this?

 The first reason is that 30 years ago we recognised hormone (ER) receptor positive breast cancer as a distinct entity and had specific hormonal treatment in the form of tamoxifen for these women; now we have new effective hormonal treatments for them. Secondly, we now have another molecular target, HER2, and specific treatment for women whose cancer is HER2 positive. However, those women whose cancers are neither ER nor HER2 positive have not had options for novel, molecularly targeted therapies and their cancers have been especially difficult to treat.

 So where are we now, and where are we heading?

  1. We need to understand that patients with TNBC often feel “negative” because they have difficult cancers
  2. We also need to acknowledge that many such women are cured of their cancers
  3. But others aren’t, and if/when their cancers come back we don’t (yet) have as many treatments as for other types of breast cancer.

 BUT there are positive signs:

  1. We now see that certain chemotherapy drugs may be more effective against TNBC
  2. Some patients with TNBC have inherited (BRCA positive) cancers and new targeted therapies for them are becoming available
  3. There are also recent encouraging signs that immunotherapy may work in women with TNBC
  4. WOMEN WITH TNBC CAN BE CURED AT DIAGNOSIS; IF THEIR CANCERS COME BACK THEY CAN ALSO LIVE WITH, AND BE TREATED FOR, BUT NOT (YET) CURED OF THEIR CANCER
    • There is much more to do
    • But the future is NOT all negative for women with TNBC

Pink Ribbon would like to thank the RSM library section, including Beata Coffey, for assistance in compiling the three lists, as well as participating experts professor Gareth Evans and Dr Rahul Deb. The previous two topics were genetics (add link to http://pinkribbon.co/genetics-breast-cancer/) and pathology (add link to http://pinkribbon.co/pathology-resources/)
