The Cochrane Library: Metastatic Breast Cancer

Considerable advances have been made in both adjuvant treatments for early breast cancer and treatment options for metastatic breast cancer. Despite these improvements, the management of metastatic breast cancer continues to provide many challenges, and the goal of treatment remains palliation. Treatment options for metastatic breast cancer range from chemotherapy, endocrine therapy, psychosocial interventions and supportive care, and these approaches have ultimately improved prognosis in some patients. In this special collection we have brought together the Cochrane Reviews that provide evidence on treatments that may be appropriate for metastatic breast cancer. The collection also includes reviews on the treatment and prevention of treatment-related harms, and on communicating information.
