July 30, 2020


Matthew P. Goetz, M.D., a medical oncologist at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, discusses the newest innovations and updates in breast cancer clinical trials.

The drug had substantial anti-tumor activity in women whose cancers had previously progressed on standard hormonal therapy.

Mayo Clinic is increasingly ordering genetic tests on a regular basis for patients, which can substantially help patients with decision-making.
