Dear TNBC family,

Hope you all can open it...

Here is a brief summary based on a statement from Dr. Ingrid Mayer an excellent TNBC specialist at Vanderbilt i Nashville, TN.

– Should discourage use of adjuvant platinum in residual TNBC post-neoadjuvant chemo, she says

Platinum-based agents have been used as adjuvant therapy for patients with residual triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) after neoadjuvant chemotherapy, based on clinical trial data showing improved pathological complete response (pCR) rates. Newer data, however, should discourage this practice, scientists said.

The ECOG-ACRIN EA1131 trial found that platinum-based chemotherapy did not extend invasive disease-free survival compared with capecitabine in patients with TNBC residual disease following neoadjuvant chemotherapy, regardless of the cancer subtype, and was associated with more severe toxicity.
