Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 negative metastic breast cancer patients who have started 1st line systemic cytotoxic chemotheraphy and are considered to have exhausted hormone therapy options (if HR+ve), per investigator’s opinion.
Genetic: Germline BRCA Test (blood)
If unavailable from the patient medical records, gBRCA gene mutation status will be tested as aligned to local clinical practice using a blood sample obtained preferably during routine clinical practice. (Note: Blood samples may be shipped to a central laboratory for testing and storage, based on local regulations for shipment of blood samples.)
Genetic: FoundationOne Dx Genomic Profile (archival Tumour Specimen)
Archival tumour specimen will be requested from all patients in the informed consent, but is not required for study enrolment (optional consent). Where sufficient archival tumour specimen is available and patients have consented to tumour specimen testing, FoundationOne Dx genomic profiling may take place as follows: - Tumour Specimen: Acceptable samples include formalin-fixed, paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue (preferred) or FFPE specimens, including core needle biopsies, fine-needle aspirates and effusion cytologies. - Tumour Testing (optional): archival tumour specimens, where available, will be tested for mutations in HRR genes including BRCA1 and BRCA2 and other genomic alterations using the FoundationOne Dx genomic profile.
Patients who test positive for a gBRCA gene mutation, and/or sBRCA or other HRR gene mutations (optional testing), will be followed prospectively for assessment of treatment patterns and associated clinical outcomes up to 30-months. - Patients who test negative for gBRCA gene mutations, sBRCA and other HRR gene mutations, no further data will be collected post baseline. Patients presenting other genomic alterations that are identified by the FoundationOne Dx genomic profile will not continue beyond baseline as part of this study.
