Stroma genomic signature predicts resistance to anthracyclin-based chemotherapy in breast cancer
Date:2/3/2009

tude of this stroma reaction that was predictive of a response to chemotherapy. "It was a surprise to us to find that it was not the tumor itself but rather how surrounding non-tumorous tissue reacts to the presence of the tumor that was our best clue in predicting resistance to treatment," Dr Farmer continued. "Patients who had a strong stroma reaction characterized by an increased quantity of fibroblasts surrounding the tumor were more likely to have a bad response to this particular chemotherapy."

"What this means is that success in treatment, having tumors shrink or disappear altogether, is in part due to molecular differences in tumors and their immediate surroundings," Dr Farmer continued.

Researchers hope that one day this discovery will contribute to changing how breast cancer patients are treated. Indeed, in the future, if a clinician learns with a simplified test that a particular woman has a high probability of not responding to an anthracyclin-based therapy, this clinician may consider prescribing an alternative chemotherapeutic regimen. Moreover, this study suggests that predicting how individual patients might respond to chemotherapy could be possible, which raises hopes that one day, personalized medicine in the treatment of breast cancer may become a reality.
