An overview of Basal-Like and TNBC
Medcscape has just published a good review article on the interrelationship between basal-like and triple-negative breast cancers, with a good definition of each one, and the implications for treatment and prognosis. When I was diagnosed in 2006, TNBC was just hitting the radar screen, and few people talked about it or any other form of hormone-negative breast cancer. It is nice to see the progress, nice to see that TNBC has become and important research focus. If only the writers would focus less on the negatives up front and explain that, in fact, most women do survive this disease.
