• 0 – 10
• Individualized risk of late recurrence*
*If ordered at time of diagnosis, test report also provides overall (0 – 10 year), early (0 - 5 year), and late (5 - 10 year) risk of recurrence
• Predictive of likelihood of benefit from extended endocrine therapy
• HIGH or LOW (binary result)
…BCI might be useful in the setting of late disease recurrence, because it might provide a much needed means of identifying patients who could be spared extended adjuvant endocrine therapy and its well characterised adverse side-effects.

The Breast Cancer Index (BCI) Risk of Recurrence & Extended Endocrine Benefit Test is intended for use in patients diagnosed with estrogen receptor-positive (ER+), lymph node-negative (LN-) or lymph node positive (LN+; with 1-3 positive nodes) early-stage, invasive breast cancer, who are distant recurrence-free. BCI provides: 1) a quantitative assessment of the likelihood of both late (post-5 years) and overall (0-10 year) distant recurrence following an initial 5 years of endocrine therapy (LN- patients) or 5 years of endocrine therapy plus adjuvant chemotherapy (LN+ patients), and 2) prediction of likelihood of benefit from extended (>5 year) endocrine therapy. BCI results are adjunctive to the ordering physician’s workup; treatment decisions require correlation with all other clinical findings.
