risk of distant recurrence within 10 years


absolute individualized chemotherapy benefit


5–15 year late distant recurrence risk*
*with 5 years of endocrine therapy alone

Have informed conversations

   Simple to interpret, straightforward to explain. For example:

“Your result gave you a low-risk score”

“This is based on the activity of your genes and tumor
risk profile”

“There is a 91% probability your cancer will not return
within 10 years”

“Chemotherapy reduces this risk by 3%, but this small benefit may not outweigh the potential for side effects”

Make confident decisions

   Knowing her result
  • Is from the most accurate prognostic1 and predictive test2

  • Combines her clinical factors with a molecular gene expression score3-5
  • Is clinically validated and prospectively confirmed2-10


  • Is recommended by international guidelines11-14

What this meant for this patient

Based on her clear result, this patient and her clinician decided to proceed without chemotherapy, allowing her to avoid the potential side effects.
