Biomarker Identifies Breast Cancers with Poor Prognoses

Breast cancers are stratified into distinct subtypes, which influence therapeutic responsiveness and patient outcome, and those with luminal breast cancers are often associated with a better prognosis relative to other subtypes, but subsets of patients with luminal breast cancer remain at increased risk of cancer-related death.   More...
