This guide for patients is based on ASCO’s most recent recommendations.
Breast cancer is a heterogeneous disease. For the past decades, new technical tools have been developed for biomarkers at the DNA, RNA and protein levels to better understand the biology of breast cancer. This progress is essential to classify the disease into clinically relevant subtypes, which may Cited by: 7.
Dec 10, 2015 · Core tip: Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) are type of breast cancer which lack of estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors and human epidermal growth factor receptor. It is a complex disease subtype with many subclasses. There are many biomarkers in TNBC used for its sub-classification. Clinically-practical assay/biomarkers that can reliably identify TNBC are necessary.Cited by: 32.
Biomarkers play an essential role in the management of patients with invasive breast cancer. For selecting patients likely to respond to endocrine therapy, both oestrogen receptors (ERs) and progesterone receptors (PRs) should be measured on all newly diagnosed invasive breast cancers.Cited by: 147.
