What is Triple Negative Breast Cancer?
WHAT IS TRIPLE NEGATIVE BREAST CANCER?
Just in recent years, Triple Negative Breast Cancer has sparked interest in the news where instead of calling the tumor as ER-negative, PR-negative, and HER2-negative; researchers began using the shorthand term, "Triple Negative," dubbed the "new type" type of cancer. Being Triple Negative, you don't have a targeted therapy and that your only treatment option is chemotherapy.Triple Negative is seen in about 15% of all breast cancers. Triple Negative is a very aggressive cancer that tends to strike younger women, pre-menopause, especially among African-American women and women who have BRCA1 mutations. The tumor tends to be fast growing and is less likely to show up on an annual mammogram. TN is more likely to metastasis early on; has a high rate of recurrence in the first 2-3 years from diagnosis and has a poorer prognosis than other types of breast cancer due to lack of specific, targeted treatment for TNBC.

Komen Tissue Bank Efforts To Gain Knowledge Of Triple Negative Breast Cancer In Women Of African Descent...
Susan G. Komen Tissue Bank at the Indiana University Simon Cancer Center plans tin 2013 to expand efforts to Kenya in search of answers to Triple Negative Breast Cancer in women of African descent. http://komentissuebank.iu.edu/ (Click to link)
"The Komen Tissue Bank (KTB) is the world’s only biobank, collecting healthy, normal breast tissue which is then shared with researchers across the globe. Komen’s new half-million dollar grant sets the stage for the Tissue Bank to conduct a first-of-its-kind tissue collection in Kenya, gathering normal breast tissue (as well as matched serum, plasma and DNA) from 200 Kenyan donors. This tissue also will be available to researchers globally."
