Laura van ‘t Veer, PhD, and colleagues at the Netherlands Cancer Institute, Amsterdam, recently identified a 70-gene profile that could predict cancer recurrence in a subset of women who had node-negative breast cancer. Their studies will be the foundation of an upcoming clinical trial in Europe and Latin America that will use DNA microarray technology (which provides a snapshot of what genes are expressed, or active, in normal and cancerous cells) to help determine therapies for women with this disease (JAMA. 2004;291:2927-2930). She took a break during the American Society of Clinical Oncology annual meeting in New Orleans to talk about her work.
