A team of researchers from across five disciplines at MD Anderson recently published the largest prospective study on breast implant associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL), shedding light on the best treatment for patients with this uncommon cancer.

“This study underscores the critical importance of a standard treatment approach with a multi-team evaluation,” says Mark Clemens, M.D., the senior author of the study...

Mutations in the BRCA 1 or 2 genes significantly increase an individual’s risk of developing breast cancer, as well as several other cancer types. Breast cancers related to a BRCA mutation are also more likely to be triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC), which can be more aggressive and difficult to treat.

Previous studies have shown that targeted drug therapies may be more effective in treating BRCA-associated breast cancers than...
