Triple negative breast cancer is a heterogeneous group of tumors, lacking the expression of estrogen, progesterone and HER-2 receptors. As frequency, it accounts about 15–20% of all breast cancers. Although in the last years there was a “boom” in publishing over this issue, multiple molecular classifications being elaborated, “the triple negative breast cancer odyssey ” is still far away from ending, as the complicated molecular pathways of pathogenesis and drug resistance mechanisms remain yet insufficiently explored.
