In this first interactive patient case video from BREAST CANCER CONNECT expert Dr Elisa Agostinetto, you will explore the complexities of a patient facing ER+/HER2- de novo metastatic breast cancer.
As you journey through the entire diagnostic and treatment process, you'll interact and engage with valuable information, challenging questions and clickable resources along the way.
In the second interactive patient case, Prof. Valentina Guarneri presents a patient with ER+/HER2- metastatic breast cancer.
Assessing tumour characteristics, including prevalent mutations like ESR1 and PIK3CA, can significantly influence and guide treatment choices in patients with ER+/HER2- metastatic breast cancer
Liquid biopsy, specifically blood-based ctDNA analysis, is the preferred method for detecting ESR1 mutations due to its heightened sensitivity and the avoidance of repeat biopsies at metastatic sites
Elacestrant, as the first FDA-approved oral SERD (January 2023), offers a promising choice for select patients with ER+/HER2- metastatic breast cancer harbouring an ESR1 mutation
Oral SERDs are being studied as a monotherapy and in combination with targeted therapies (i.e. CDK4/6, PI3K and AKT inhibitors), offering promising prospects for their integration into clinical practice
