Triple receptor-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a complex heterogeneous disease that carries a worse prognosis and tends to relapse earlier than other subtypes of breast cancer. Until very recently, the options for treating a patient with TNBC were limited to chemotherapy combined with surgery or radiation, as indicated. However, new and emerging targeted therapies offer hope that more effective treatments and better outcomes will be available for these patients. This program examines the efficacy of current, new, and emerging therapies, their potential role in treatment, and ways to manage their toxicities and adverse events.

After completing this activity, participants should be better able to:
- Identify the mechanisms of action of novel and emerging therapies for TNBC
- Summarize evidence for the efficacy of new and emerging therapies for TNBC and their potential role in the treatment regimen
- Develop strategies to monitor, recognize, and manage adverse events associated with the treatment of TNBC
