Molecular prognostic factors for breast carcinoma
© 2018 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. Molecular genomic testing provides clinicians with prognostic and predictive information that can help individualize treatment, decrease the risk of over-or under-treatment, and, accordingly, improve outcomes. In this chapter, we describe several of the genomic tests that are currently available for clinical use in the management of breast cancer. We also discuss ongoing research related to validating and expanding their utility in different patient populations and explain why it is important for clinicians to incorporate these tools into their practice.
