About Breast Cancer:
Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women after skin cancer. In 2020, it is estimated that there will be 276,480 new cases of female breast cancer and an estimated 42,170 people will die of this disease.2
EndoPredict (EPclin), a breast cancer prognostic test, analyzes RNA expression of 8 target genes, 3 normalization genes, and 1 control gene, creating a 12-gene molecular score, which is then combined with clinical features of the tumor (tumor size and nodal status) to predict the 10-year distant recurrence (DR) rate. This information may be used by treating physicians to guide therapy decisions by identifying which patients have sufficiently low risk of DR and may safely forgo chemotherapy, and which patients are at high risk for DR and may need adjuvant chemotherapy in addition to endocrine therapy.
