Further study details as provided by Cancer Trials Ireland:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Disease relapse, endocrine and/or chemotherapy resistance prognosis [ Time Frame: For duration of follow up, expected 10 years ]
    A biobank, TMAs and full face sections, will allow for the identification of candidate/novel biomarkers prognostic for disease relapse and predictive for endocrine and/or chemotherapy resistance

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Signature/biomarkers [ Time Frame: For the duration of follow up, expected 10 years ]
    Validation of emerging signature/biomarkers

Estimated Enrollment: 690
Study Start Date: December 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Patients must have participated in TAILORx ICORG 06-31, participated in trial arms, and have adequate tumour tissue available

Detailed Description:

The primary objective is to develop a biobank, tissue microarrays (TMAs) and full face sections, which will be used to identify candidate/ novel biomarkers prognostic for disease relapse and predictive for endocrine and/or chemotherapy resistance.

The secondary objectives are:

  • To validate emerging signatures/biomarkers identified.
  • To develop new assays for the breast cancer clinic.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 75 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
