<ul class="seamTextUnorderedList"> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">Abemaciclib (Verzenio®) is a type of targeted therapy called a CDK 4/6 inhibitor -- it blocks two enzymes, CDK4 and CDK6, that help cancer grow. It is already approved to treat some metastatic breast cancer, but its use in this trial is experimental.</li> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage cancer cell DNA. This stops cancer cells from dividing and growing, thus slowing or stopping tumor growth.</li> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">Stereotactic radiation (stereotactic radiosurgery) delivers high-dose, precisely-targeted radiation in fewer doses than traditional radiation therapy.</li> <li class="seamTextUnorderedListItem">Anti-estrogen therapies are commonly used to treat hormone receptor-positive breast cancer.
