Adjuvante Chemotherapie ja oder nein?

Entscheidungshilfe bei frühem Brustkrebs: Genomische Signaturen

  • Ulrike NitzEmail author

Anhand klassischer Prognosefaktoren lässt sich nicht vorhersagen, ob eine Patientin mit Mammakarzinom von einer adjuvanten Chemotherapie profitieren wird. Gerade bei hormonsensiblen Tumoren gewinnen genomische Signaturen für die Entscheidungsfindung an Bedeutung.
