Triple-Negative Breast Cancer: Perspectives on the Disparities in Care and Managed Care Considerations for the Advancing Treatment Paradigm

Release Date: October 29, 2021
Expiration Date: October 29, 2022

Activity Overview

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is aggressive and has the highest rate of metastatic disease and lowest survival rate compared with other breast cancer subtypes. Treatment is challenging due to disease complexity, with available therapies including cytotoxic chemotherapies, PARP inhibitors, immunotherapies, and antibody therapy. There are also disparities to overcome in the treatment of TNBC, as clinical outcomes are impacted by both biologic and nonbiologic factors in various ethnic groups. This activity will explore the clinical data and guideline recommendations for the treatment of TNBC as well as strategies for formulary management. Additionally, panelists will share insights with participants to promote awareness of potential racial disparities in cancer care.
