Authors' recommendations: The published evidence supports MammaPrintR results as being a better predictor of risk of metastasis at 5-10 years than tumour characteristics or clinically based prognostic systems. Nevertheless, there is no evidence that allows conclusions to be drawn on the clinical utility of the MammaPrintR analysis in those patients for whom thebenefit of chemotherapy is augured a priori. Also, the clinical applicability of the results obtained with MammaPrintR in groups of patients treated in a homogenous way is unknown, it being a difficult decision to reject chemotherapy in those cases for which the array predicts a low risk of metastasis. These questions could be resolved with the MINDACT clinical trial, started in 2006 and which will finalize in 2016.
