According to Dr. Bonni Guerin, Director of Breast Cancer Treatment & Prevention at Overlook Hospital in Summit, "Across the board, 75 percent of breast cancer patients are cured, however for those women who have had a lumpectomy or mastectomy -- even if they have been told that all of the cancer has been removed -- about 15 to 20 percent will have a recurrence," Guerin said.
For women with a recurrence of breast cancer, the mortality rate is 99 to 100 percent, Guerin said. She said traditionally chemotherapy has been administered to all women with breast cancer, but chemotherapy doesn't work on all types of breast cancer. "The Tailorx 1 trial proved very effective in predicting who had tumors that were sensitive to chemotherapy and those who had tumors that were deaf to chemotherapy," said Guerin. For example, two women of the same age and general health who had small tumors removed have different chances of a recurrence, Guerin said. "The Oncotype test can now tell us that Jane has genetic material that couldn't find its way out of a paper bag if it tried -- meaning it is not likely to spread and therefore needs no chemotherapy," said Guerin. "It can also tell us whether Sally has a tumor with genetic material that codes for protein and teaches cells how to replicate and break off and enter into the blood stream. And so for Sally, the test tells me chemotherapy is a must," said Guerin.
