Length And Quality Of Life For People Living With Metastatic Disease
Metastatic breast cancer (MBC) is cancer that originated in the breast but has spread to other parts of the body, such as liver, lung, bones and brain. It causes less than 40,000 deaths every year in the U.S., a number that has remained unchanged for three decades.
This alarming fact is driving the advocate-led Metastatic Breast Cancer
Alliance (“the Alliance”) to convene 60 experts from patient advocacy,
academia, industry and government to discuss barriers in MBC research and
possible solutions to better coordinate and accelerate research and translation
to help patients sooner.
2014, the Alliance released its Changing
the Landscape for People Living with Metastatic Breast Cancer Report,
which analyzed 224 clinical trials, 2281 funded research grants, 7900 MBC
patient responses to surveys and 175 literature articles on quality of life and
epidemiological studies. Click to read more.
