LARGE-SCALE STUDIES SHOW PROMISE FOR TREATING METASTATIC BREAST CANCERS:
In December 2011, the annual five-day San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium presented the latest findings in breast cancer research to an international audience.

Other highlights from the conference include reports on the latest in laboratory-based breast cancer research, and results of other studies.
