FLEX: Liquid Biopsy for Breast Cancer, a Pilot Study
Patients being evaluated for risk of recurrence and possible neoadjuvant therapy will be enrolled in this FLEX substudy. Participating patients will consent to have serial blood drawn and evaluated in addition to, and in conjunction with, standard of care tumor tissue biopsy.
This study aims to identify circulating analytes within blood that are prognostic indicators of tumor burden, treatment response, and survival in patients with early stage breast cancer. Another aim will be to assess the possibility of expanding the clinical utility of both MammaPrint and BluePrint in liquid biopsy diagnostics.
Chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and endocrine therapy is according to NCCN guidelines or other peer reviewed established regimens. Specific regimens are at the discretion of the treating physician. MammaPrint Low Risk (Reference Arm): MammaPrint High Risk (Study Arm):
