ECCO 2017 | AURORA – seeking to understand the genetic aberrations in metastatic breast cancer
Martine Piccart, MD, PhD, from the Free University of Brussels, Brussels, Belgium, describes the AURORA program (NCT02102165), which seeks to understand the evolution of metastasis in breast cancer, at the European Cancer Congress of the European Cancer Organisation (ECCO) 2017 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The prospective program led by the Breast International Group (BIG) will use next-generation sequencing (NGS) and tumor DNA analysis in plasma to determine changes in tumor DNA between the primary tumor and developing metastasis in breast cancer patients. Prof. Piccart explains how data will be integrated on a central IT platform to allow different cases to be followed.
