Abstract

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women. Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is an aggressive subclass defined by its lack of hormonal receptors and HER2 amplification. Although TNBC only accounts for 15% of all invasive breast cancers, there are limited therapeutic options for patients with TNBC. Although breast cancer patients have a favorable prognosis if their tumor is detected early, patients with TNBC are prone to earlier recurrence and local/distant metastasis. Consequently, patients with metastatic TNBC have
