Published Online: January 7th 2021

touchONCOLOGY joins Dr Javier Cortes at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) 2020, to discuss the data being presented around the KEYNOTE-355 study and the potential of pembrolizumab as a treatment for triple-negative breast cancer (Clinical Trial Identifier: NCT02819518). The abstract ‘Additional efficacy endpoints from the phase 3 KEYNOTE-355 study of pembrolizumab plus chemotherapy vs placebo plus chemotherapy as first-line therapy for locally recurrent inoperable or metastatic triple-negative breast cancer‘ (ABSTRACT NUMBER: GS3-01) was presented at the virtual SABCS 2020, 8-11 December 2020.

  2. Could you tell us a little about the KEYNOTE-355 study and its findings? (1:02)
  3. What additional efficacy endpoints are you presenting at SABCS 2020? (1:58)
