The results of the PALLAS study, which evaluated the addition of Palbociclib to adjuvant endocrine therapy in breast cancer, were presented at the ESMOVirtual Congress 2020 on September 20, 2020.The PALLAS study was conducted by the Austrian Breast and Colorectal Cancer Study Group (ABCSG), Austria and the ALLIANCE Foundation Trials group - United States. LACOG participated in the study as part of a collaborative group working in Latin America along with Mexican research centers that made a significant contribution to the study.

GEICAM started this initiative in 2008 with the purpose of presenting an in-depth review of the most relevant milestones presented at congresses and international publications annually.  At this annual multidisciplinary meeting, attended by all professional involved with breast cancer, a comprehensive review of the advances made in research, diagnosis and treatment in connection with this disease has been carried out. The main goal of this event is to become a reference for everyone interested in finding out more about the advances made in terms of breast cancer in an independent, comprehensive and critical fashion.   Sign up at: https://www.ragmageicam.org/ and participate!

Members of LACOG Breast cancer group have recently published the article “The impact of sociodemographic factors and health insurance coverage in the diagnosis and clinicopathological characteristics of breast cancer in Brazil: AMAZONA III study (GBECAM 0115)” AMAZONA III/ GBECAM 0115 is a prospective cohort study that evaluated Brazilian patients with newly diagnosed breast cancer from 2016 to 2018. This manuscript depicts a wide and detailed scenario of sociodemographic characteristics of 2,950 breast cancer patients at diagnosis. The patients were from 23 sites in Brazil. The results of the study show that patients with public health coverage were diagnosed with symptomatic disease, at later stages and with more aggressive subtypes of breast cancer when compared to patients with private health coverage. This study brings to light important information that allows us to not only have a better understanding of tumor and patients’ characteristics but also, help to identify gaps within healthcare systems in Brazil. With such knowledge, it’s possible to develop strategies to improve screening and educational programs in the country, especially in the public setting.
