the survival of women diagnosed with breast cancer considering the presence of other prognostic factors related to the tumor. Methods This is a survival study of patients diagnosed with breast cancer and its relation with obesity and tumor prognostic factors. The study consisted of a hospital-based sample of women over 18 years of age, with Author: Eni Devay de Freitas, Marco Antônio Vasconcelos Rêgo.   Importance of Prognostic Factors Prognostic factors in cancer often have an immense influence on outcome, while treatment often has a much weaker effect. For example, the influence of the presence of lymph node involvement on survival of patients with metastatic breast cancer is much greater than the effect of adjuvant treatment with tamoxifen.   College of American Pathologists Consensus Statement CATEGORY 1 Tumor Size Tumor size is one of the most powerful predictors of tumor behavior in breast cancer.[] The frequency of nodal metastases in patients with tumors smaller than cm is 10% to 20%,[1,7] and node-negative patients with tumors smaller than cm have a year disease-free survival rate of about 90%.[] .

Prognostic factor listen (prog-NOS-tik FAK-ter) A situation or condition, or a characteristic of a patient, that can be used to estimate the chance of recovery from a disease or the chance of the disease recurring (coming back).

Many Factors Can Affect Your Prognosis. Some of the factors that affect prognosis include: The type of cancer and where it is in your body; The stage of the cancer, which refers to the size of the cancer and if it has spread to other parts of your body; The cancer’s grade, which refers to how abnormal the cancer cells look under a provides clues about how quickly the cancer.

Prognostic factors are those measurements available at the time of diagnosis that are associated with disease-free or overall survival and can often be used to predict the natural history of the tumor.

Optimizing treatment based on prognostic factors plays an important role in the management of female breast cancer. The standard prognostic factors currently applied in new cases of breast.

Abstract. From a multiple-regression analysis of prognostic factors and survival in a series of patients with primary breast cancer, a prognostic index has been constructed, based on lymph-node stage, tumour size and pathological by:   Traditional prognostic factors, ie, those that predict the risk of recurrence or death from breast cancer, include number of positive axillary nodes, tumor size, tumor grade (histologic or nuclear.

Prognostic factors can be used to define a population of patients at so little risk of progression or recurrence of breast cancer that systemic therapy may be avoided.6, 7 This is recognized as increasingly important now that the series of overviews from the Early Breast Cancer Trialists' Collaborative Group have demonstrated that the relative Author: Cletus A.

Book Description. This title reviews the key prognostic factors in breast cancer, discussing the methodologies involved in measuring and reporting.

It also examines the roles of major predictive markers such as the steroid receptors, p53 and HER Given the wealth of information in the medical literature on breast cancer, this volume is useful.

5 PROGNOSTIC FACTORS Prognostic Factors are clinical, pathologic, and biological features of cancer patients and their tumors that forecast probable course and outcome of the disease.

Predicts the likelihood of patient survival. Predicts recovery from cancer without additional or adjuvant systemic therapy after initial surgery.

The clinical prognostic stage groups are applicable to all patients with primary breast cancer before any treatment has been implemented, but require a clinical and imaging evaluation as well as a biopsy with grade and available ER, PR, and HER2 results; the pathologic prognostic stage groups are applicable to all patients treated with complete Cited by: 6.

The group concluded that operable breast cancers that were diploid, even up to a DNA index ofhad a favorable prognosis compared with aneuploid tumors but that the advantage was small and tended not to survive as a prognostic determinant in multivariate analyses because of the correlation of ploidy with more powerful prognostic factors.

A pivotal article by Hortobagyi et al 1 in the Volume 1 issue of Journal of Clinical Oncology addressed the impact of predictive and prognostic models in the setting of metastatic breast cancer.

At that time, clinical variables were used in a forward stepwise logistic regression procedure to determine the patient characteristics important in predicting response to doxorubicin-containing Cited by: Prognostic factors reflect the biology of the cancer and are defined as those factors associated with outcome without consideration of treatment.

Predictive factors reflect the tumor sensitivity or resistance to a particular treatment, and are defined as those factors that predict which patients are likely to respond to a specific therapy.

Prognostic factors in breast cancer. College of American Pathologists Consensus Statement The purpose of this study was to analyze the prognostic and predictive factors that relate to locoregional or distant recurrences in breast cancer patients who have been treated at Cited by: In addition to tests for prognostic and predictive factors, women diagnosed with node-positive breast cancer will require a number of tests to confirm that the cancer has not spread to other organs, such as the lungs, liver, and bone.

Only about 6% of women when first diagnosed with breast cancer have distant metastases (Ries et al. Interest in the topic of the relationships between blood type, diet, and health (including risk of cancer) was heightened with the publication of the book, Eat Right 4 Your Type by Peter D'Adamo in The book describes a theory of healthy eating for the main blood types that is based on the adaptations that human beings have made over time as a result of migration and changes in habitat.

Thirty-eight papers and summarized discussions. Main topics: natural history of breast cancer (survival, prognosis, and endocrine effects); local and endocrine treatment in primary lesions (mastectomy, radiotherapy, and ovarian suppression); treatment of metastatic disease (clinical and hormonal); early diagnosis (education and screening); and tumor-cell biology (kinetics, immunology, and so.

A survival difference between white and black females has been reported after diagnosis and treatment for breast carcinoma. Although multivariate analyses demonstrate that the survival difference is less or nonexistent when additional prognostic factors are considered, study results have been by:.

Breast cancer is a heterogeneous disease with varied morphological appearances, molecular features, behavior, and response to therapy. Current routine clinical management of breast cancer relies on the availability of robust clinical and pathological prognostic and predictive factors to support clinical and patient decision making in which potentially suitable treatment options are.Arch Pathol Lab Med—VolJuly Prognostic Factors in Breast Cancer—Fitzgibbons et al ated with axillary dissection, but the procedure has not yet been shown to have disease-free and overall survival rates equivalent to those of axillary by: Some oncologists have suggested that adjuvant systemic therapy is appropriate for all patients with invasive breast cancer, regardless of prognostic factors.

If prognostic factors can identify the populations at risk, predictive factors can identify therapies that will not be effective for certain subgroups.
