  1. The Nottingham prognostic index applied to 9,149 patients from the studies of the danish breast cancer cooperative group (DBCG).

    Article - En anglais

    In primary, operable breast cancer, the Nottingham Prognostic Index (NPI) based on tumour size, lymphnode stage and histological grade can identify three prognostic groups (PGs) with 10-year survival rates of 83%, 52%, and 13%. With the aim of defining a subset of patients having so good prognosis that adjuvant therapy can be withhold, the NPI was applied to a Danish population-based study group comprising 9,149 patients.

    As opposed to the British study, we used conventional axillary lymph-node staging.

    Histological grading was in both studies done by means of a similar slight modification of the Bloom and Richardson procedure, but in the Danish study only ductal carcinomas were graded.
