Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is highly aggressive subtype, commonly diagnosed in younger women (< 50 years), with limited treatment options. TNBC patients have poor survival and increased risk of visceral and central nervous system metastases. Diagnosis of TNBC at early stage can increase the survival rate, avoid metastasis and requires less expensive treatment. However, early detection is one of the major challenges in the struggle against this disease. These facts underscore the pressing need of novel biomarkers, strategies, and technologies.
