Oncology | Emerging Role of Immunotherapy in Patients w/Triple-Negative Breast CA

Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a biologically heterogeneous disease that accounts for about 15% of all breast cancers. Unlike luminal breast tumors, which express the estrogen receptor and/or progesterone receptor, and human epidermal growth factor receptor-2-overexpressing (HER-2+) breast cancers, TNBC does not express a prototypical target for therapy that has been clinically validated.
