PURPOSE Germinal gene polymorphisms can explain a part of the interpatient pharmacodynamic variability of anticancer drugs, particularly fluoropyrimidines. Genes for which polymorphisms may potentially influence pharmacodynamics of fluoropyrimidines, including capecitabine, are thymidylate synthase (TS), methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR), and(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The heterogeneous nature of breast cancer can make decisions on adjuvant chemotherapy following surgical resection challenging. Oncotype DX is a validated gene expression profiling test that predicts the likelihood of adjuvant chemotherapy benefit in early-stage breast cancer. The aim of this study is to determine the costs of(More)
