Summary of Research from San Antonio

Posted 1/10/2014

Posted in

  I know that the annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium was a month ago, and I remember that I posted a fair amount of news during the days of the meeting. Going through some things on my desk this morning, however, I found this excellent summary (available either as a Podcast or a written transcript) from Living Beyond Breast Cancer. It is worth a few minutes of your time.

  Research Highlights From the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium

In this edition of our podcast coverage from the 2013 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, we bring you the latest information from these areas of breast cancer research:

•post-treatment psychosocial and physical issues
•updates on chemotherapy in high-risk women, early and metastatic breast cancers, triple-negative breast cancers, and in women with high numbers of circulating tumor cells
•a new design for clinical trials that may allow drugs to become available sooner
•breast cancer incidence in women using hormonal treatments for infertility
•a presentation on what women know about risk reduction versus how they put this knowledge into practice, from founder and president Marisa Weiss, M.D.
