Abstract

The fraction of cells that incorporate 3H-thymidine (3H-dT labeling index [3H-dT LI]) proved to be a prognostic indicator in patients with node-negative and node-positive resectable breast cancers treated with locoregional treatment alone or with adjuvant combination chemotherapy. In this study, we assessed the prognostic role of 3H-dT LI alone and in association with other pathologic and biologic variables in a series of 249 women with node-positive breast cancers treated with adjuvant endocrine therapy.
