breast cancer profile

breast cancer profile

(1) A battery of tests performed on a serum sample to screen for breast cancer—e.g., BRCA1, BRCA2, urine CEA, CA 15-3. This particular profile is not widely used to screen for breast cancer as it has a relatively low diagnostic yield.
(2) A proprietary battery (Symphony suite) of assays performed on paraffin-embedded tissue to provide a decision support system for managing breast cancer.

Symphony suite
MammaPrint—Determines risk of recurrence.
BluePrint—Determines molecular subtypes.
TargetPrint—Determines ER, PR and HER2 status.
TheraPrint—Identifies alternative types of therapy for metastatic disease.
