Hormone Refractory Breast Cancer Market - Global Industry Segment and Forecast 2014 - 2020

Transparency Market Research Report Added "Hormone Refractory Breast Cancer Market" to its database.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/24/2014 -- Breast cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer which is frequently diagnosed in women above 40 years of age. This cancer is readily diagnosed in aged women and is one of the leading causes of death among them. At present, hormone refractory breast cancers are occurring increasingly due to rising number of hormone therapies that have made breast cancers resistant to most of these therapies, hence are also referred to as hormone-resistant breast cancers. However, various drug developers are increasingly conducting clinical trials to test the effectiveness of the chemotherapeutic agents other than hormones that can be helpful in treating such hormone-resistant breast cancers. Some of the chemotherapeutic agents, such as, trastuzumab and everolimus alone and/or trastuzumab and everolimus in combination are under clinical trials for effective management of hormone refractory breast cancers.
