New treatments for breast cancer are the subject of CNN Vital Signs

The latest drugs and other therapies to treat breast cancer will be on the agenda on the next edition of CNN Vital Signs. In the program, in the form of a tablecast, doctor Roberto Kalil welcomes doctors Fernanda Barbosa, breast specialist at the São Paulo State Cancer Institute (Icesp), and oncologist Laura Testa, for a conversation about the most common cancer in women.

In recent years, several treatment options have emerged in the cancer-fighting arsenal – and breast cancer benefits from many of these new alternatives. Some therapies speed up treatment while reducing side effects, which can have a significant impact on patients’ lives.

Estimates indicate that in 2023, around 74,000 new cases of the disease could appear in the country. Despite the high number of cases, the chances of cure reach 95% when the tumor is discovered early. Prevention strategies and medical monitoring will also be part of the conversation, which will be broadcast on Saturday (11), at 10:45 p.m., on CNN Brasil.

Another topic that will be part of the debate is the high incidence of breast cancer among young women and the relationship between this phenomenon and genetics and lifestyle.

Where to watch: “CNN Sinais Vitais”, with Roberto Kalil, will be broadcast on Saturday, November 11 at 10:45 p.m. on all CNN Brasil platforms.
