Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer and the leading cause of cancer death in females worldwide, accounting for 23% (1.38 million) of the total new cancer cases and 14% (458,400) of the total cancer deaths in 2008 (Jemal et al. 2011; Jemal, Siegel, and Ward 2010). In the U.S., 249,260 new cases and 40,890 deaths are estimated for 2016 (ACS 2016). Traditionally, treatment decisions have been based on tumor histology and the status of three main biomarkers: ER (estrogen receptor 1, or ESR1), PR (progesterone receptor, or PGR), and HER2 (erb-b2 receptor tyrosine kinase 2, or ERBB2, also known as neu). Despite significant improvements in the treatment of breast cancer, new therapies and treatment strategies are needed.
