Recent advances have been made in diagnosing and treating triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). It can be difficult for practicing clinicians to stay current with these emerging data. Through a combination of didactic presentations and interactive discussions, our distinguished panel discusses the challenges involved in the management of TNBC. The panel also provides their insights and perspectives on recent clinical studies and investigational approaches for treatment of TNBC, including sequencing strategies for existing and novel agents and combination therapies.
