MammaPrint® test for personalised management of adjuvant chemotherapy decisions in early breast cancer
KCE Report 298 (2018) Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women in Belgium and throughout the world. Provided this cancer is in the early stage, treatment is essentially locoregional, that is, via surgery alone or combined with radiation therapy. In theory, this treatment is enough to eradicate the tumour since it is still limited. However, it is known that about 30% of patients treated in this way are at risk of developing remote metastases, because metastatic cancerous cells are already present but undetectable at the time of diagnosis.
KCE Reports 305 (2019) For several years, KCE has undertaken background work to improve the quality of care to patients with cancer, together with the Cancer Registry Foundation and College of Oncology. Over time, this project should lead to a true system of quality monitoring, including clinical recommendations, quality indicators and a hospital benchmarking and feedback dynamic. This year, efforts have concentrated on head and neck cancers.
