Abstract

Oestrogen receptor-negative and triple-negative breast cancers are types of aggressive tumours that account for approximately 30 and 15% of total breast cancers, respectively. Selective oestrogen receptor modulators and aromatase inhibitors are unable to treat and prevent these subtypes of mammary tumours. Thus, it is worth identifying new pathways, biomarkers, and agents that are effective in the treatment and prevention of these subtypes. Several classes of drugs have been studied, and many are still currently under investigation. We have attempted to conduct a state-of-the-art study on this important issue.
