Update in Oncology: Breast Cancer Summary

In this video, Kevin R. Fox, MD, the Mariann T. and Robert J. MacDonald Professor in Breast Cancer Care Excellence at Penn Medicine, offers a frank overview of breast cancer therapy, with a focus on early stage disease. His discussion includes dual-targeted therapy in the post-operative treatment of HER2-positive early stage breast cancer; an admonition on the use of vitamin D as a pre-treatment for early stage disease; bevacizumab and platinum therapy; and ovarian suppression as both a means of preserving fertility and a treatment in early stage breast cancer.
