"These important results in people with metastatic triple-negative breast cancer whose disease expresses the PD-L1 protein are highly encouraging and represent a significant step forward in the treatment of this challenging disease", said Horning.

"We had a pamper party previous year with hand massages and makeovers and previously we've had karaoke.
