Several novel breast cancer therapies have come onto the market in recent years, significantly changing the breast cancer landscape, specifically in the metastatic setting. The Pathways Heart Study has looked at cardiovascular outcomes and risk variables from breast cancer treatments. A number of breast cancer risk factors as well as the benefits of physical exercise and aspirin use among breast cancer survivors are discussed in this review. Read More ›

Tucatinib added to trastuzumab and capecitabine resulted in a substantial and permanent improvement of progression-free survival and overall survival for all patients with HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer with brain metastases, as confirmed by results from the HER2CLIMB study. Read More ›
