News and reporting on breast cancer.

A Myriad Genetics-funded team found that an 86-SNV polygenic score could modify breast cancer risk in women with pathogenic mutations in cancer risk genes.

The company recently presented results from its Aurora assay for multi-cancer screening and plans to launch a $100 test for the US and Chinese markets.

After DS-1062 demonstrated encouraging activity in lung cancer, the firm decided to add a cohort of TNBC patients whose tumors express TROP2.

Healthcare professionals can inject the regimen, containing Perjeta, Herceptin, and hyaluronidase, in patients' homes after intravenous chemotherapy.

In the study, pelareorep will be combined with paclitaxel and the PD-L1 inhibitor Bavencio in patients with HR-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer.

At the American Society of Clinical Oncology's virtual meeting, investigators presented two new studies of BluePrint classification patterns.

The firms will jointly study the combination, and Sanofi will have an exclusivity period to negotiate the in-licensing of KN026, contingent on certain milestones.

An analysis of pediatric cancer survivors suggests subsequent neoplasm risk can increase after certain genotoxic treatments in those with DNA repair gene changes.

The MAGENTA and ProGen trials showed that video-based and online education can increase the number of patients getting tested compared to traditional approaches.  

Results show population screening can pick up risky BRCA1/2 mutations in men and women from Ashkenazi Jewish populations in the US, though engagement challenges remain.
