A 21-gene test could allow up to 85% of women with a common type of early breast cancer to forgo chemotherapy and its associated side effects, according to research presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology in Chicago.
In the United States, those who score low on the test - 0-10 - are already told to skip chemotherapy after their tumours are removed and they receive hormone therapy. Nine years after the treatment was administered, 93.8% were still alive in the chemo group, while 93.9% were still alive in the endocrine-only group. At the moment, women who get a low score on the test are told they do not need chemo, those with a high score are told they definitely do.
Dr. David Chang, a pancreatic cancer surgeon from the University of Glasgow and Glasgow Royal Infirmary, said: "The main conclusion from this study is that giving patients chemotherapy and chemoradiation prior to surgery may yield a better long-term outcome than surgery upfront".
