It has been shown that both genetic and epigenetic alterations of hMSH2 and hMLH1 contribute to genomic instability and tumour progression in sporadic breast cancer. Chromosome-based CGH can be used to identify the loss of one or both copies of a given gene, as well as regions of amplification. In addition, the technique provides information on the number of copies of any part of each chromosome throughout the whole genome. com Chapter 2 in breast carcinoma,103,104 and those with clinical follow-up have led to the identification of genetic changes related to prognosis.

There are a variety of techniques available to determine HER-2 status in breast cancer, some of which are employed for research purposes only. In diagnostic pathology laboratories HER-2 status is assessed routinely either by IHC, which assesses expression of the HER-2 oncoprotein, and fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH), which measures the number of HER2 gene copies per chromosome 17 or gene amplification. Modifications of ISH using colorimetric detection are being developed, including chromogenic in situ hybridisation (CISH) and silver-enhanced in situ hybridisation (SISH).

Oestrogen and progesterone are considered to diffuse into cells, or be transported to the nucleus. 40 In unselected patients, approximately 30% will respond to endocrine therapy. 43 Methods of measuring ERs and PRs There are a multitude of methods available; however, in clinical practice most are based on two distinct strategies. e. radiolabelled steroid ligand is used to detect the receptor. The second relies on the recognition of the receptor protein by specific antibodies. 42 IHC is currently the most commonly used method because it can be performed on paraffinembedded material and allows assessment of the expression specifically in either invasive or in situ cancer.
