Hope S. Rugo, MD
Despite international guidelines and data that show CDK4/6 inhibitors plus aromatase inhibitors can improve overall response rates, overall survival, and progression-free survival in patients with metastatic breast cancer, there is a lasting belief among patients that chemotherapy is the preferable course of treatment. Dr. Hope Rugo attempts to dispel this misconception, citing that endocrine therapy and CDK4/6 inhibitors are well tolerated and don’t have the intensive side effects associated with chemotherapy.
