Immune-Humanized PDX Model-Estrogen-Independent, Hormone Receptor-Positive Metastatic Breast Cancer

ER+ tumors can be successfully treated with hormone therapy, but many tumors acquire endocrine resistance which limits treatment options. Sandra D. Scherer, Ph.D. describes the development of an immune-humanized PDX model of estrogen-independent endocrine-resistant ER+ MBC.
