• GS1-01. Increasing the dose density of adjuvant chemotherapy by shortening intervals between courses or by sequential drug administration significantly reduces both disease recurrence and breast cancer mortality: an EBCTCG meta-analysis of 21,000 women in 16 randomized trials.

• GS4-02. Randomized comparison of adjuvant aromatase inhibitor exemestane plus ovarian function suppression vs. tamoxifen plus OFS in premenopausal women with hormone receptor–positive early breast cancer: Update of the combined TEXT and SOFT trials.

• GS1-03. Perioperative aromatase inhibitor treatment in determining or predicting long-term outcome in early breast cancer–the POETIC Trial.

• GS1-06. Extended adjuvant bisphosphonate treatment over 5 years in early breast cancer does not improve disease-free and overall survival, compared with 2 years of treatment: Phase III data from the SUCCESS A study.

• GS2-05. First-line ribociclib vs. placebo with goserelin and tamoxifen or a nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitor in premenopausal women with hormone receptor–positive, HER2-negative advanced breast cancer: Results from the randomized phase III MONALEESA-7 trial.

• GS2-06. Phase Ib/II study evaluating safety and efficacy of pembrolizumab and trastuzumab in patients with trastuzumab-resistant HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer: Results from the PANACEA (IBCSG 45-13/KEYNOTE-014) study.

• GS2-07. MANTA – A randomized phase 2 study of fulvestrant in combination with the dual mTOR inhibitor AZD2014 or everolimus or fulvestrant alone in estrogen receptor–positive advanced or metastatic breast cancer.

• GS3-01. A prospective, randomized, multicenter phase 3 trial of additional 2 versus additional 5 years of anastrozole after initial 5 years of adjuvant endocrine therapy – results from 3,484 postmenopausal women in the ABCSG-16 trial.

• GS3-02. Invasive disease-free survival and gene-expression signatures in CALGB (Alliance) 40601, a randomized phase III neoadjuvant trial of dual HER2 targeting with lapatinib added to chemotherapy plus trastuzumab.

• GS3-03. A phase III, multicenter, double-blind randomized trial of celecoxib versus placebo in primary breast cancer patients (REACT – Randomized European Celecoxib Trial).

• GS3-04. A randomized phase III study of adjuvant trastuzumab for a duration of 9 weeks versus 1 year, combined with adjuvant taxane-anthracycline chemotherapy, for early HER2-positive breast cancer (the SOLD study).

• GS3-06. Long-term follow-up of CALGB 40502/NCCTG N063H (Alliance): A randomized phase III trial of weekly paclitaxel, compared with weekly nanoparticle albumin-bound (nab)–paclitaxel or ixabepilone +/– bevacizumab as first-line therapy for locally recurrent or metastatic breast cancer.

• GS3-08. Pathological complete response predicts event-free and distant disease-free survival in the I-SPY2 TRIAL.

• GS4-01. Pooled analysis of five randomized trials investigating temporary ovarian suppression with gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogues during chemotherapy as a strategy to preserve ovarian function and fertility in premenopausal early breast cancer patients.

• GS4-02. Randomized comparison of adjuvant aromatase inhibitor exemestane plus ovarian function suppression vs. tamoxifen plus OFS in premenopausal women with hormone receptor–positive early breast cancer: Update of the combined TEXT and SOFT trials.

• GS4-03. Randomized comparison of adjuvant tamoxifen plus ovarian function suppression versus tamoxifen in premenopausal women with hormone receptor–positive early breast cancer: Update of the SOFT trial.

• GS4-04. Randomized blinded sham- and waitlist-controlled trial of acupuncture for joint symptoms related to aromatase inhibitors in women with early-stage breast cancer.

• GS5-03. Risk of arm morbidity after local therapy in young breast cancer survivors.

• GS5-05. Primary endocrine therapy for ER-positive ductal carcinoma in situ: CALGB 40903 (Alliance).

• GS6-01. Integration of clinical variables for the prediction of late distant recurrence in patients with estrogen receptor–positive breast cancer treated with 5 years of endocrine therapy.

• GS6-02. The benefit of abemaciclib in prognostic subgroups: An exploratory analysis of combined data from the MONARCH 2 and 3 studies.

• GS6-07. EMBRACA: A phase 3 trial comparing talazoparib, an oral PARP inhibitor, to physician’s choice of therapy in patients with advanced breast cancer and a germline BRCA mutation.
