Abstract 1347


Semiquantitative inmunohistochemical (IHC) expression of progesterone receptor (PR) adds prognostic value to the current IHC-based luminal A (LA) definition, such that patients (pts) with LA (Ki67  20%) tumors can be spared from adjuvant chemotherapy (CT). Oncotype Dx® (ODX) and MammaPrint® (MP) assays have been validated as predictors of CT benefit. This study assessed the distribution of recurrence risk in LA and LB breast tumors as defined by Ki67 and PR.


A retrospective analysis was performed in 889 T1-2, N0-Nmic, M0 tumors for which ODX or MP results and local pathology data were available. Ki67 was assessed by IHC (high ≥14% and low 20%). Histological grade was defined using the Nottingham grading system.


Median age 54 years (18-77). All pts had HER2 negative tumors. Median tumor size 15 mm (2-88). Three hundred (33.7%) tumors were classified as LA and 589 (66.3%) as LB. Grade 1 tumors were higher in LA (27%) than in LB (19%) pts (p 


There is a wide distribution of recurrence risk results between LA and LB tumors defined by Ki67 and PR which confirms the important role of gene-expression assays in adjuvant decision making. Of note about half of pts with LB tumors had low recurrence risk indicating minimal benefit from adjuvant CT.
