The role of chemotherapy in early luminal breast cancer remains challenged. The NEOPAL trial (NCT 02400567; Cottu et al, ESMO 2017 LBA09) compared sequential chemotherapy (CT) and letrozole-palbociclib (LP) as neoadjuvant treatment in PAM50 defined high-risk luminal breast cancer patients, showing that LP might be as efficient as CT with regard to breast conserving surgery and pathological response. We report here extended exploratory pathological results, focusing on tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs), proliferative response and preoperative endocrine prognostic index (PEPI) scores.
