In the Media: John S. “Bo” Hrom, MD

John S. “Bo” Hrom, MD, with Hattiesburg Clinic Hematology/Oncology, recently shared some details on clinical trials and advances in breast cancer treatment for October’s Pink Up with WDAM.

According to Hrom, there are more than 3.8 million women in the country battling breast cancer.

“Invasive breast cancer affects around a quarter of a million women each year,” Hrom said. “Non-invasive breast cancer affects more than 300,000 women each year.”

“We currently have several trials that are open,” Hrom said. “Many of these are looking at non-chemotherapy options, targeted drugs that specifically target proteins on the cancer. They have a lot less toxicities than traditional chemotherapy.”
