Tackling Endocrine Resistance in Breast Cancer

July 24, 2017

This video reviews the mechanisms of acquired and upfront endocrine resistance in estrogen receptor–positive breast cancer as well as research into strategies for overcoming this resistance.

In this video, Ingrid A. Mayer, MD, MSCI, of the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center in Nashville, Tennessee, discusses mechanisms of acquired and upfront endocrine resistance in estrogen receptor (ER)-positive breast cancer as well as research into strategies for overcoming these types of resistance, including targeting the mTOR and PI3K pathways.

Mayer spoke on this subject during an education session at the 2017 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, held last month in Chicago.
