tiveness in both untreated and previously treated patients means that other considerations, such as toxicity, will continue to help determine the choice of regimen for individual patients, the researchers said.

"Although this network meta-analysis is unlikely to alter routine clinical practice, it provides a solid evidence-based foundation to support the observation that the survival of women diagnosed with advanced breast cancer has improved because of more active systemic chemotherapy and targeted therapy," Bedard and Piccart-Gebhart wrote. "This should provide hope to patients, investigators, industrial sponsors, and regulatory agencies alike that well-designed clinical trials with novel systemic therapies can further alter the natural history of this devastating disease."
