The primary objective of this study is to compare the progression-free survival (PFS) between sacituzumab govitecan-hziy (SG) versus treatment of physician's choice (TPC) in participants with previously untreated, locally advanced, inoperable or metastatic triple-negative breast cancer whose tumors do not express programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1) or in participants previously treated with anti-programmed cell death (ligand or protein) 1 (Anti-PD-(L)1) Agents in the early setting whose tumors do express PD-L1.

Official Title

A Randomized, Open-label, Phase 3 Study of Sacituzumab Govitecan Versus Treatment of Physician's Choice in Patients With Previously Untreated, Locally Advanced, Inoperable or Metastatic Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Whose Tumors Do Not Express PD-L1 or in Patients Previously Treated With Anti-PD-(L)1 Agents in the Early Setting Whose Tumors Do Express PD-L1


Triple Negative Breast Cancer, PD-L1 Negative, Breast Neoplasms, Triple Negative Breast Neoplasms, Paclitaxel, Albumin-Bound Paclitaxel, Carboplatin, Gemcitabine, Sacituzumab govitecan, Sacituzumab Govitecan-hziy, nab-Paclitaxel, Sacituzumab Govitecan-hziy (SG)
