Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in China. Targeted therapies for breast cancer was among the leading cancer strategy for disease diagnosis and treatment that considers individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle. Historically, breast cancer has been treated according to biomarkers such as estrogen receptor and HER2 status. Treatment based on these markers have generated the world-renowned milestones for targeted therapies. More and more novel targets including both proteins and RNAs have been investigated extensively, and some of them are on the way to be clinically available to date.
