Abstract

Triple-negative breast cancer is an aggressive subtype of breast cancer that does not have targeted therapies available. Recent research has focused on extensive molecular characterization in order to identify therapeutic targets. The Cancer Genome Atlas Network recently published one of the most extensive molecular reviews to date and identified modules of related mutations, some of which have been targeted in clinical trials. Due to tumor heterogeneity, it is unlikely that a single therapy will be effective. Identification of molecular targets and tailored treatments based on the molecular alterations in individual cancers hold the best promise for improving the outcomes of this aggressive breast cancer.
