Clinical Trial Landscape: Breast Cancer

Clinical Trial Landscape: Breast Cancer

Breast cancer remains an ever-evolving challenge in the oncology sphere. The dynamic nature of the disease and its multiple subtypes mean that new investigational therapies are consistently being developed. The hope for these therapies lies in the focused clinical trials that test their safety and efficacy.

In this piece, we cast a lens on the present-day landscape of breast cancer trials, offering researchers a data-driven view into the clinical trial sphere, underpinned by Citeline’s real-world analytics. We also home in on Precision for Medicine’s long-standing and current expertise in breast cancer research.

Breast Cancer Clinical Trial Overview Using Citeline Insights

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers among women worldwide. With early detection and treatment, survival rates have improved, but the disease still presents significant challenges. As per the latest statistics, there are more than 2 million new cases of breast cancer diagnosed annually. In the US alone, the year 2021 saw an estimated 281,550 new cases of invasive breast cancer among women. In the European Union, the numbers vary across countries, but cumulatively, the region witnesses approximately 404,920 new cases each year. It’s imperative to note that while breast cancer is predominantly a disease of women, men can also be affected, albeit in much smaller numbers.
