With evolving gBRCAm BC guideline landscape, we present latest gBRCA testing rates among mBC US pts with HR+/HER2- or triple negative BC (TNBC); including clinical outcomes, treatment patterns and HRU in gBRCAm pts.


The Flatiron Health database was used in a real world retrospective analysis of mBC pts with HR+/HER2- or TNBC, ≥18 yrs old, diagnosed between Jan 2011-Feb 2018. Rates of gBRCA testing were assessed. One- to 5-yr overall survival (OS) post mBC diagnosis for gBRCAm HR+/HER2- and TNBC pts were estimated. Cox proportional hazards model was used to estimate OS of TNBC vs HR+/HER2-. Outcomes between TNBC vs HR+/HER2- pts were compared while adjusting for imbalances. Antineoplastic treatment was summarized and HRU patterns were analyzed using t-tests.


The study included 12,021 mBC pts (10,291 HR+/HER2-; 1730 TNBC). Results for gBRCA testing were available for 16.7% of pts overall; (HR+/HER2-: 15.4%, TNBC: 24.2%). The most common 1st line treatments for gBRCAm TNBC were capecitabine (19%) and carboplatin/gemcitabine (15%) and 1st line treatments for gBRCAm HR+/HER2- included letrozole (10%) and fulvestrant (7%). Pts counts, OS estimates and HRU for gBRCAm carriers are shown in the table; Cox regression results showed lower OS for gBRCAm TNBC pts vs gBRCAm HR+/HER2- mBC pts, Hazard Ratio (HR+/HER2- / TNBC) and 95% CI 0.59 (0.34, 1.01). Estimated median OS and 5-yr OS rates are (33.9 mths, 22.3 mths) and (28.9%, 26.4%) for gBRCAm HR+/HER2- and TNBC pts respectively. Number of HRU visits per-pts-per-year were significantly higher among TNBC pts.


gBRCA testing rates among mBC pts with HR+/HER2- or TNBC were low. Among mBC pts with gBRCAm, 5-yr OS rates were < 29% for both HR+/HER2- and TNBC; poor prognosis and HRU burden demonstrates a significant unmet need for more targeted, less HRU-intensive treatment options among these pts.
