Objective: Analyze the patent documents of the five main patent offices in the world to design an overview on the development of alternatives for the treatment of breast cancer metastasis.

Materials and Methods: Patent documents were obtained from the patent bases of the five main patent offices in the world and patentometric methodologies are used to investigate their contents and relationships. Results: 6574 patents from 1998 to 2017 in-cluding “breast cancer metastasis” were retrieved. The US was the leader in patent claims, followed by Australia, China, Germany and South Korea. Conclusions: the results show that the patent activity related to breast cancer metastasis is increasing and the leading countries are the US, Canada, China, Japan, South Korea, Germany, England, France, and Australia. In addition, the data obtained will allow addressing key evaluation questions to define new areas of research.
