Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) comprises a highly diverse collection of cancers. Here, we review this diversity both in terms of gene expression subtypes and the repertoire of genetic events. Transcriptomic analyses of TNBC have revealed at least six subtypes, with the luminal androgen receptor (luminal AR) or molecular apocrine cancers forming a distinct group within triple-negative disease. Distinct from the gene expression subtypes, a diverse set of genetic events have been described… CONTINUE READING
