Breast cancers demonstrate a gradient of responsiveness to endocrine therapy according to hormone receptor status, with tumors positive for both estrogen and progesterone receptors responding most favorably. The authors hypothesized that reproductive risk factors, which are probably mediated by endogenous hormones, would also differ according to receptor status, and that tumors positive for both receptors would exhibit the highest risk. Information on risk factors was obtained from 1,154 breast… CONTINUE READING
