Two interesting neoadjuvant clinical trials for patients with triple-negative breast cancer were presented:
(1) CALBG/Alliance 40603: This study randomized triple-negative breast cancer patients to receive carboplatin, a DNA-damaging chemotherapy, plus or minus bevacizumab, a drug that slows the growth of new blood vessels, in addition to standard dose-dense doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, and paclitaxel (the AC-T regimen) and showed that the patients on both the carboplatin plus standard chemotherapy and carboplatin, bevacizumab plus standard chemotherapy had a greater chance of having little to no residual disease in the breast and axilla (or armpit) at the time of lumpectomy or mastectomy.
