The Future Starts Now

Today is our opportunity to change what breast cancer looks like tomorrow. Working together, we will elevate our understanding of breast cancer and enhance our treatment approach so we can better care for patients all around the world.

A 10-Year Review of Metastatic Breast Cancer

The Global Status of mBC: A Decade Report (PDF) reveals areas of improvement as well as substantial gaps in care, access to resources and support, and treatment outcomes for women with mBC. This report was developed by Pfizer Oncology, working collaboratively with the European School of Oncology (ESO) under the framework of the International Consensus Conference for Advanced Breast Cancer (ABC).

A steering committee (PDF) of global multidisciplinary mBC advisors — comprising physicians, leaders of patient-support organization, and patients — contributed to the development of this report.
