Cl=confidence interval; DoR=duration of response; gBRCA=germline breast cancer susceptibility gene; GHS=global health status; HER2-=human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 negative; HR+=hormone receptor-positive; LA/mBC=locally advanced/metastatic breast cancer; OR=odds ratio; ORR=objective response rate; OS=overall survival; QoL=quality of life; RECIST=Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors; TNBC=triple-negative breast cancer; TTR=time to response.Capecitabine, eribulin, gemcitabine, or vinorelbine. Conducted in the intent-to-treat population with measurable disease at baseline. Per RECIST v1.1, confirmation of response was not required.ORR is the proportion of patients who have a partial or complete response to treatment. Unconfirmed ORR includes patients with confirmed and unconfirmed responses.Depicts subgroup analyses from the overall EMBRACA study population. Small patient numbers can be a limitation of subgroup analyses.These findings should be interpreted with some caution due to the lower numbers of patients in the heavily pretreated (≥2 prior lines of chemotherapy) group.
