Dr Alexandra Zimmer - National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, USA

Dr Alexandra Zimmer speaks to ecancer at the 2019 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting about ongoing clinical trials looking into the prevention and treatment of brain metastases for patients with HER2 or triple negative breast cancer - the populations who are most likely to develop brain metastases.

She explains that their results indicated that while temozolomide was found to prevent development of brain metastasis in this model, it was not effective as treatment for existing lesions.

Dr Zimmer concludes by describing the next steps of this trial and the patients that will be eligible for participation.
