The manufacturer’s website and direct questions to manufacturers were used to develop this assessment element.
The three tests (FEMTELLE, MammaPrint, and Oncotype DX) are add-on tests (not replacing any existing tests) to provide additional information in the tertiary care setting (i.e. specialised consultative healthcare facilities). The tissue samples are collected during breast cancer surgery. The information provided by the tests will be used by the multidisciplinary cancer team to supplement the other clinical and pathological information to determine whether or not the patient should receive adjuvant therapy.
