Cancer Center investigators and physician-scientists share promising research and treatment developments in breast cancer, melanoma and more.
A biomarker reflecting expression levels of two genes in tumor tissue may be able to predict which women treated for estrogen-receptor-positive breast cancer should receive a second estrogen-blocking medication after completing tamoxifen treatment.
A comparison of three methods of predicting recurrence risk in women treated for estrogen-receptor-positive breast cancer finds that only the breast cancer index – a biomarker based on the expression levels of seven tumor-specific genes – accurately identifies patients who continue to be at risk after five years of estrogen-blocking treatment.
