Reason #3: Breast Recurrence Score test vs traditional assessment methods

The Breast Recurrence Score test provides strong and consistent information beyond traditional clinical and pathologic features in patient subgroups. Traditionally, breast cancer treatment was based only on clinical-pathologic factors, which provide risk estimates for a patient population. The Breast Recurrence Score test is both prognostic and predictive, providing individualized information about the estimated risk of distant recurrence and benefit of adjuvant chemotherapy that goes beyond traditional assessment methods.4-7,27,28
