Ibrance seen in triple negative breast cancer study to block metastasis

I know someone who is triple positive on Ibrance/Letrozole and doing very well so it seems to work on Her2+ as I've discussed before. This article is new to me but I'm thinking that ER/PR-'s might also find it works. Just another tool in the tool box. Take care all.
