Within the scope of a project aimed at supporting clinical research in the field of medical oncology, the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany encouraged multidisciplinary cooperative therapeutic studies at a national level. In this context the outlines of a National Breast Cancer Study Group emerged in 1979. The plan for a national adjuvant study in breast cancer in which estrogen and progestin receptor status are to be used for selecting hormone-dependent neoplasias necessitated the formation of a committee for standardization of the assessment of hormone sensitivity. The committee was established in 1979 and consists of the following members (given in alphabetical order):
  • Prof. Dr. H. Bojar, Abteilung für Onkologische Biochemie, Physiologische Chemie II, Universität Düsseldorf

  • Priv.-Doz. Dr. Geyer, Universitätsfrauenklinik, Freiburg

  • Dr. H.-O. Hoppen, Max-Planck-Institut für Experimentelle Endokrinologie, Hannover

  • Dr. W. Jonat, Zentralkrankenhaus St.-Jürgen-Straße, Frauenklinik, Bremen

  • Dr. K. Klinga, Universitätsfrauenklinik, Heidelberg

  • Prof. Dr. Kuß, Laboratorium für Klinische Chemie, Spezialuntersuchungen, I. Frauenklinik der Universität, München

  • Prof. Dr. K. Pollow, Frauenklinik der Johannes-Gutenberg-Universität, Mainz

  • Prof. Dr. G. Trams, Universitätsfrauenklinik, Hamburg

  • Dr. C. de Waal, I. Universitätsfrauenklinik, München

  • Dr. Hannelore Würz, Universitätsfrauenklinik, Köln
