REVIEW ON POTENTIAL TARGETED THERAPY FOR TRIPLE NEGATIVE BREAST CANCER
Keywords:Targeted therapies, triple negative breast cancer
Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a very aggressive type of cancer. TNBC is not just a single type of disease to be cured, but it consists of 6 subtypes which are basal-like 1 and 2, immunomodulatory, mesenchymal, mesenchymal stem- like and luminar androgen receptor. These subtypes has diverse characteristics, which hold potential opportunity for targeted treatment. Lack of molecular targets for triple negative tumor lead to limited targeted therapies for TNBC. Therefore, effective targeted therapies are urgently needed for TNBC. This paper will highlight on the potential targets in TNBC and treatment options that are currently under clinical application.
