In contrast to rapid progress for (HER2)-positive breast cancer with trastuzumab and trastuzumab-emtasine conjugate (T-DM1) agent no targeted drug has been developed for HER2 negative women with breast cancer, yet. Recently, Palbociclib has approved by the FDA for postmenopausal women with estrogen receptor – positive (ER+)/HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer. Future perspective and challenges for this subcategory of patients are discussed.
