Survival data of the patients were correlated to tumour size, axillary lymph node (pN) status, mitotic frequency and morphometric prognostic index (MPI) in a series of 611 women with a primary breast carcinoma treated and followed-up for over 12 years in Kuopio University Hospital. The pN status, tumour size, mitotic activity index (MAI), volume-corrected mitotic index (M/V index) and MPI all predicted recurrence-free survival and cancer survival (p < 0.001). In pN(-) patients, the MPI was the… CONTINUE READING
