Triple negative breast cancers (TNBC) are a biologically aggressiveform of breast cancer and constitute approximately 10-15% of all breast cancerpatients. Distant metastasis, lack of clinically targeted therapies andprognostic markers, makes the disease difficult to treat. Till now not muchwork has been carried out on this deadly disease. This book provides an overview of TNBC etiology, its treatmentstrategies and prognostic markers to identify the outcome of standard therapies.Signalling pathways namely cell proliferation, angiogenesis, invasion andmetastasis, apoptosis, autophagy and others involved in complicating thedisease have been described in the chapters to convey an understanding aboutthe disease mechanisms. All the possible drugs either in pre-clinical orclinical stages have also been mentioned with data that depicts their efficiencyin targeting altered genes. The book also introduces the reader to herbalmedicine exhibiting high potency to target TNBC, their synthetic analogs usedduring chemotherapy and their ability to fight against chemoresistance. Theconcept of phytonanotechnology has also been discussed. The book helps createawareness among a broad range of readers about TNBC. It points to prioritizingthe upgradation of health care facilities and re-designing future treatmentstrategies to provide maximum benefit to breast cancer patients.
