Adam M. Brufsky, MD, PhD, professor of Medicine, associate chief of Hematology/Oncology, co-director of the Comprehensive Breast Care Center, associate director of Clinical Investigation, University of Pittsburgh, discusses when to do a multiparameter genomic assay for a patient with early-stage breast cancer.Brufsky advises all physicians to pre-screen their patients to determine their risk of recurrence before choosing whether to do a multiparameter genomic assay. Historically, physicians have done these tests to confirm their patient’s risk of recurrence, Brufsky explains, however, he advises not to do the testing for patients who are determined to have a low risk of recurrence during a pre-screening. If a patient cannot be classified as low risk, Brufsky explains that doing a multiparameter genomic assay is fine.
