Novartis announced it would present data across its breast cancer portfolio and pipeline in a broad range of patient populations, treatment combinations and pathways at the upcoming 40th annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS), San Antonio, December 5-9.
“Our presentations at SABCS will address some of the most pressing challenges and questions facing the advanced breast cancer community, including the need to better understand treatment sequencing and biomarkers,” said Bruno Strigini, CEO, Novartis Oncology. “At Novartis, we seek to advance scientific understanding of breast cancer with the ultimate goal of improving treatments and outcomes for those affected by the disease. We are pleased to share the latest data from our MONALEESA program, which continues to evaluate the potential of Kisqali treatment in new patient populations.”
Results from the Phase III MONALEESA-7 trial in premenopausal women with hormone-receptor positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 negative (HR+/HER2-) advanced or metastatic breast cancer will be presented for the first time in a late-breaker oral presentation.
