Project: Early response prediction (prior to or within one week following treatment initiation) to hormonal treatment in metastassised breast carcinoma patients.

project duration
01-JAN-01 – 31-DEC-04
abstract
The currently available tools for therapy respons prediction to hormonal treatment of metastasised breast carcinoma patients are inadequate and result in an unnecessarily delay of more benicial treatment in roughly 50£ of patients. Functional evaluation of ER and more recently GRP tumoural status by means of receptor scientigraphy should allow reduction of this figure to 10%.
