Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is an aggressive form of breast cancer that does not respond to endocrine therapy or human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)–targeted therapies. Individuals with TNBC experience higher rates of relapse and shorter overall survival compared to patients with receptor-positive breast cancer subtypes. Preclinical discoveries are needed to identify, develop, and advance new drug targets to improve outcomes for patients with TNBC. Here, we report that MYCN, an oncogene typically overexpressed in tumors of the nervous system or with neuroendocrine features, is heterogeneously exp...

Conclusion: Tau protein expression can predict pCR before NACT in TNBC, but there was no correlation between Tau expression and DFS or OS. PMID: 32140269 [PubMed]

ConclusionsAddition of carboplatin to neoadjuvant chemotherapy significantly improved DFS and OS in patients with TNBC but not in those with hormone receptor-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer.
