Histological grade and other prognostic factors in relation to survival of patients with breast cancer.

Freedman LS, Edwards DN, McConnell EM, Downham DY - Br. J. Cancer (1979)

Bottom Line: Records of 3085 patients registered with breast cancer at the Mersey Regional Cancer Registry have been analysed to evaluate the relative importance of possible prognostic factors.In a subgroup of 1759 patients, clinical stage and histological grade are shown to be strongly related to survival after treatment.In addition histological grade is related to the distribution of times to death after treatment.

ABSTRACT
Records of 3085 patients registered with breast cancer at the Mersey Regional Cancer Registry have been analysed to evaluate the relative importance of possible prognostic factors. In a subgroup of 1759 patients, clinical stage and histological grade are shown to be strongly related to survival after treatment. In addition histological grade is related to the distribution of times to death after treatment. The results of this and 3 other studies have implications for the design and analysis of clinical trials in the primary treatment of breast cancer.
