Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) accounts for 15%-20% of all breast cancer. It is a heterogeneous breast cancer subtype with a poor prognosis. Given these negative features, there is a need for new treatment options beyond conventional chemotherapy in both the early stage and palliative setting. Impressive results have been reported with antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) that link a cytotoxic payload to a monoclonal antibody, such as sacituzumab govitecan and trastuzumab deruxtecan, in the metastatic stage. The focus of this review is to discuss completed and ongoing trials involving ADCs in TNBC.
