Inclusion Criteria:

  • Adult women (≥ 18 years of age) with advanced TNBC.
  • Histological or cytological evidence of estrogen-receptor negative (ER-), progesterone receptor negative (PgR-) and human epidermal growth factor-2 receptor negative (HER2-) Breast Cancer by local laboratory testing, based on last available tumor tissue.
