Regulation Description Gene expression profiling test system for breast cancer prognosis.
Definition A device which uses a gene expression profile of a breast cancer tumor, from patients stage i or stage ii lymph node negative, with a tumor size of <5.0 cm, to provide a risk assessment for distant recurrence of breast cancer. The result is indicated for use only as a prognostic marker by physicians along with a number of other factors to assess the risk of recurrence of breast cancer.
Physical State RNA isolation kits, enzymes, fluorescent dyes, hybridization systems, computer
Technical Method Uses Gene expression and computer algorithm that gives risk of recurrence. Gene expression involves isolation of RNA from frozen tumor tissue sections, amplification of RNA and hybridization.
Target Area breast tumor tissue sections
