Several studies have also shown a reduction in response rates to hormonal therapy. 87 examined the response to tamoxifen in 205 tumours with ER-positive disease. In HER2-positive compared to HER-2-negative patients, they found no significant evidence for a poorer response, time to treatment failure or survival. 88 Tamoxifen significantly improved response, DFS and OS, irrespective of HER-2 status. However, tamoxifen was not randomised within this trial and all patients received one of three regimens of doxorubicin.

Since then most large studies have confirmed this relationship in multivariate analysis. It is now well established that there is a significant correlation between HER-2 overexpression/amplification and poor prognosis for patients with nodal metastasis. There was until recently no consensus on the prognostic value of HER-2 in node-negative breast cancer patients, a group most often diagnosed through screening and representing a subgroup that could potentially benefit from appropriate adjuvant therapy.

5 • Survival by NPI (1980–86). combination of lymph node stage and histological grade improved prediction of prognosis. 121 have identified ‘young’ age, tumour size and histological grade as factors to be added to lymph node stage in the prediction of recurrence; these factors were used to divide lymph node-negative patients into three prognostic groups. One of the strengths of the NPI is the fact that it has been verified prospectively in the NTPBCS. 122,123 Such studies demonstrate the inherent power of the pathological factors used in the NPI, which has become the most widely used index for the management of patients with breast cancer, certainly in the UK.
