WG-DASL expression profiling of formalin-fixed paraffin embedded primary breast tumours and matched lymph node metastases across four clinically relevant metastatic groups


ABSTRACT: The development of metastases is a complex multi-step process manifested by diverse patterns, involving single or multiple organs and different time-courses of distant recurrences. The aim of this study was to characterise molecular patterns associated with patterns of organ-specific metastatic spread observed in the clinic from FFPE embedded breast carcinomas and lymph node metastases. This study includes patients with four patterns of first metastatic sites: bone only (with no visceral metastases within 6 months of first metastasis); to viscera only (with no bone metastasis within 6 months of first metastasis); to bone and visceral organs within a 6 month period; and no recorded distant metastasis. The study population was composed of 5,061 patients diagnosed with invasive primary breast cancer without distant metastasis at the time of diagnosis between 1975 and 2005 from Guy’s Hospital. From the study population, an incidence-based case-control design was used to include patients from each of the metastatic groups and a control series randomly matched to cases according to having no reported metastasis up to the calendar date of metastasis. The aim of this expression profiling study was to characterise any molecular patterns that may be associated with the organ-specific metastatic spread observed in the clinic from FFPE embedded breast carcinomas and lymph node metastases.
